Fantastic Four (Trailer #1)

FOX studios owns the rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four. Since 2000 they have released seven X-Men, and two Fantastic Four films. All with varying results of success. Fantastic Four and its sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer were ok at best. This year the series will be given a fresh start with director Josh Trank at the helm. The movie will star Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell. These young actors will be playing Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, Human Torch and The Thing respectively. These are the first images we’ve seen of the movie and despite the concern the trailer is solid. We didn’t get to see much action, but the movie look like it has a more serious, gritty tone that is more in line with the current X-Men movies. We will obviously see more of this movie in the coming months. The quality cast will hopefully elevate the campy source material. Fantastic Four will be in theaters on August 7, 2015
