New 'Fantastic Four Images,' Film Described as 'Dark Amblin Movie'

Fantastic Four

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?

    Sorry this looks like a train wreck, cool trailer or not. More Amazing Spiderman hipster garbage.
    • HG2012
      better than jokey and corny

        Crap is crap, whether it be hipster or jokey/corny. Sony just can't seem to get it right. Give it to Marvel (Disney), they'll get it right or as close to right as can be.
        • qweqwu
          Yeah, give it to marvel and we'll have stupid jokes for little kids every 2 minutes.
    • daneforst
      Please explain what about any of this says "hipster" to you. I'd love to know. I don't see a single handle bar mustache and I'm pretty sure Ben Grimm isn't riding a fixie. Do you know anything about the term or have you just jumped on the "anything I don't like is hipster" bandwagon?
      • TXSteadyEddie
        Just moved from ATX after living there for 10 years, so yeah I know "hipster" His bike may not be a "fixie" but I've seen hipsters driving around ATX with old bikes all of the time. Just drive by or stop at the Black Sheep Lodge on S. Lamar Blvd. in Austin and see the variety of "hipster" rides.

    Promote superhero action movie: release four boring images of people standing around, frowning, like some ultra-brooding Breakfast Club with superpowers. I'm ready to be proven wrong, but for now I'm definitely on the side of the skeptics.
  • TheOct8pus
    Dark Amblin movie? Seriously? That doesn't sound that intriguing when referring to the Fantastic 4
  • qweqwu
    Sounds great, a dark, realistic, down to earth is exactly what we need, enough with the marvel kiddy jokes.
  • Gshift
    LOL @ these photos. Miles Teller is like, "I must save everyone because I look heroic right now." And Michael B. is like, "What the hell you lookin' at, nyucka? Yea, I'm Johnny Storm now. Big whoop. Wanna fight about it?" And Kate be like, "Does this make me look fat?" And Jamie Bell seems to be having some trouble with that bike... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • NathanDewey
    I'm interested mainly for Josh Trank and Miles Teller. I don't like how they keep comparing it to other director's work like Spielberg, Nolan and Cronenberg. I feel like they need to push that it's the guy who directed Chronicle more. I'm liking Mr. Fantastic's suit. Looks loose and heavily braced with those rings and straps around his arms, I'm guessing so his expansion can be contained and directed properly. I'm thinking this will be the first superhero related movie I've seen since Wolverine Origins.
  • Brian Sleider
    lol at the guy in the suit in the first pic.
    • Akirakorn
      FYI kids: It's Tim Blake Nelson, and by the looks of it this will be his 2nd marvel character. Poor guy.
      • Brian Sleider
        I thought that was him, from Hulk with Norton right? To bad that movie failed. I wasn't making fun of the guy himself, only the funny face he is making.
    I think they should have just called it something else. Every one is held up by the fact they are calling it FANTASTIC FOUR and using the character names, but it looks like this will be anything but a Fantastic 4 movie...still though, I am getting excited!
