New 'Fantastic Four Images,' Film Described as 'Dark Amblin Movie'
Last month the teaser trailer for Fantastic Four came out of nowhere, finally showing off what we can expect from Josh Trank's comic book reboot. The teaser was pretty heavy-handed, going for a tone akin to Interstellar, so we're wondering just what we'll see in the next trailer. In the meantime, Empire has released four new images from the film, each giving us a new look at Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell and Kate Mara in the film. There's nothing too revealing here, but at his point, we'll take what we can get. The film doesn't hit until later this summer, so we've probably got time to wait for more footage. Look!
Here's the new images from Josh Trank's Fantastic Four from Empire:
You can still watch the first trailer for Fantastic Four right here.
The magazine also had an intriguing description about the film from Trank himself, who describes the film as being "dark Amblin movie." For those who don't know, Amblin is one of Steven Spielberg's early production companies responsible for the likes of Gremlins, E.T., The Goonies and more. If Trank is able to achieve that tone, this cold actually be a solid reboot. It sounds like producer Simon Kinberg is tooting the same horn as he adds, "…there was an Amblin-style approach to the characterization, and to contextualizing everything in a real world." We'll see if they can pull that off in the final cut.
Fantastic Four is directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and written by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past). The 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. Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell star in the film which 20th Century Fox releases on August 7th. Well?
