The superhero/reboot phase continues…
Never a fan of the comic or the movies, this isn’t really on my radar. Trank is talented, and I did enjoy Chronicle, so if I catch it will be more out of interest in him then the happy 4some. That being said the trailer is interesting…Trank said David Cronenberg was a major influence on this film….maybe he turns the Fantastic 4 into the study and repercussions of a science experiment gone horrible wrong. If it can achieve half the heart and horror ‘The Fly’ did perhaps it has a chance to stand out in a packed summer of tentpoles.
Fantastic Four | Official Teaser Trailer: FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
