Fantastic Four Trailer #2

"If you want to stop him, it's going to take everything you have." 20th Century Fox has unleashed the new full-length trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four movie, not yet part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but getting closer. They finally dropped a teaser for this in January, as we've been waiting a while to see any footage, and this is the follow-up. It still focuses on their origin and the first half of the film, but we get a glimpse at where things are headed (towards Dr. Doom) and I like what I see. Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell star as the new Four, plus that is Reg E. Cathey giving orders. I'm actually kinda into this, despite yet another origin story. When you change the world, prepare to defend it.

Here's the second trailer for Josh Trank's new take on Fantastic Four, direct from Fox's YouTube:

Click the poster above to see the first teaser trailer for Fantastic Four, and stay tuned for more updates.

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?

not sure if releasing this trailer this soon after Star Wars and Batman V Superman was a good idea. kind of like bringing a knife to a tank fight

Ryan on Apr 19, 2015


Who says who is fighting who? We get four awesome trailers in a row so what? There really isn't any rivalry between anybody, it's all fair grounds. Besides Batman v Superman is coming out next year and we had the Ant-Man, Star Wars, and now Fantastic Four trailer hit that are coming this year.

Jordan Odinson on Apr 19, 2015


Yea, I'm planning to see everything! Star Wars, BvS, Fantastic Four, and Ant-Man. They all look good.

Alex Billington on Apr 19, 2015


Absolutly!!! Awesome year for Movie-Lovers!!! 😀

Dubmaster2010 on Apr 19, 2015


Yeah....'cause it's your JOB

Not really. Gets me real excited about what an awesome summer it will be for movies.

Dirty Dick Cockburn on Apr 20, 2015


This officially gets my "I LIKE IT *SMASH*, ANOTHER!" seal of approval! I just knew this movie was going to be THE surprise hit of 2015 with all the hate it has been getting and this trailer just proved it. I guess all of the haters are silenced now. Excellent Ultimate Marvel inspired casting and the direction just looks perfect. This is the Fantastic Four film we needed years ago. Oh and yes we have a Doom that finally looks menacing. I really do hope Fox finds a way to cross the Fantastic Four into the X-Men universe. This kind of gritty and surreal take they are doing with the new F4 would blend perfectly into the X-Men universe and it would be a shame if they weren't thinking of taking that chance. They have two of Marvel's most powerful comic book teams in their hands. It just needs to happen.

It may be "THE" surprise of the summer, but it doesn't mean it's going to do the best. For just summer movies: Avengers, Jurassic World, Mad Max, and probably Ant Man are going to do better than this.

JBroti on Apr 19, 2015


Nah, cross it into the Avengers Universe with Spidey and Ray Stevenson's Punisher. Too bad they used 2 different quicksilvers for xmen and avengers otherwise I would have loved to see Wolverine in there too.

Dirty Dick Cockburn on Apr 20, 2015


this looks awful. it's not necessarily Josh Trank's fault so much as Fantastic Four is just plain dumb source material and doesn't translate well to screen

Joshua Addisson Roach on Apr 19, 2015


I thought the same thing about Thor, but I love it.

Dirty Dick Cockburn on Apr 20, 2015


I agree. But after watching the trailer for Ultron ... This looks like a BBC special rather than something epic. And I'm not one of those people who hates Josh Trank. I loved Chronicle. But it's like.. Really? Do we have to see how these heros became who they are again?

Joshua Addisson Roach on Apr 20, 2015


Yawn....please, if you have rights to Marvel heroes, give them back to the folks who know what they are doing.

Brian Sleider on Apr 19, 2015


Like you? What kind of movies do you make?

Dirty Dick Cockburn on Apr 20, 2015


Are you one of the special people who think only people who make movies can comment on their quality? Like Marvel, if you were too daft to figure that out.

Brian Sleider on Apr 20, 2015


Guy with the rock face looks ugly. How does he even live looking like that?

Nielsen700 on Apr 19, 2015


look at that poster! Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic is Nic Cage as Superman.

Guest on Apr 19, 2015


I just don't buy that kid as Richards.

grimjob on Apr 19, 2015


Look at that poster! Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic is Nic Cage as Superman.

Astroboy3000 on Apr 19, 2015


hahaa!!! Nic Cage as superman... those pictures always crack me up!!

Dirty Dick Cockburn on Apr 20, 2015


why? it is an origins film - he should be younger.

dan on Apr 20, 2015


It's nice to see something that actually exceeded my expectations...they're going for a different 'family dynamic' within the group, which was my problem with the first two (although I enjoyed them) but this looks good. DD is really badass, so is Ben. If this is any indication, it could be a sleeper!

kitano0 on Apr 19, 2015


The original really illustrated that some people are meant to play certain parts. Chris Evans is a perfect Captain America but was a terrible Johnny Storm. When it comes to comic book movies for me, the characters are what really sell them. The casting is what really ruined the first 2 (yes and they weren't the best movies anyway). These guys are talented young actors who look and feel the part in these trailers but I hope they can pull it off for the entire movie. Fox have done a great job rebooting/continuing the X-Men franchise. I hope they can do the same for these movies.

TK on Apr 19, 2015


I thought Chris did a great Johnny Storm.

Paul K. on Apr 20, 2015



Dirty Dick Cockburn on Apr 20, 2015


None of the characters really worked. Jessica Alba as a genetics researcher, Evans as the hot headed astronaut with terrible one liners whose character is pretty much replicated in green lantern which bombed, Gruffudd as the physicist and McMahon as the evil Dr. Doom. Sounds like someone cast this crew from a GQ magazine. Maybe I'm being too hard on Evans because he was only doing the best with what he was given but I think Jordan will be alright as Johnny Storm as well.

TK on Apr 20, 2015


I agree with you that the other characters did not work, but I thought Evans did a great job with what he was given. He was natural and his character did bring some needed comic relief.

Paul K. on Apr 21, 2015


This is looking better and better every time! And that poster... so friggin' awesome!

Tuomas Lassila on Apr 19, 2015


Oh! Sweet Kate Mara

toonfed on Apr 19, 2015


Ogh, the old joke about the nerd and the awkward fistbump. For the rest of the trailer... doesn't look that bad.

toonfed on Apr 19, 2015


Damn... FF4 trailer today and BatVSup, Star Wars VII, and Ant Man trailer this past week as well as new Jurassic World trailer tomorrow (along with an onslaught of Avengers tv spots/movie clips)...these past two weeks have got to be one of the best times ever to catch solid movie trailers at one time.

JBroti on Apr 19, 2015


It's not FF4. The 2nd "F" IS for 4!!

Bill Lange on May 13, 2015


I'm excited for this.

Rock n Rollllll on Apr 20, 2015


Bad Ass!! I have to admit that I have not been very excited about casting lately but I was wrong about Heath Ledger too.

Dirty Dick Cockburn on Apr 20, 2015


I was having a hard time with the casting of the movie (except for RR) but this trailer is so good - I'm real excited for the story.

dan on Apr 20, 2015


I love the fact that they casted Michael B Jordan as the human torch. That kid is ridiculously good in his craft. I give him an oscar by the time he's dead. A few maybe.

ragethorn on Apr 20, 2015


Good trailer. Nice feel to this film. I don't think it's going to blow anyone away, but it can't be worse than "Rise of the Silver Surfer"

TheOct8pus on Apr 20, 2015


So they basically learn how to perform multidimensional travel, but after they get powers decide to instead use up their time saving humans. Yah... no.

backwardsprogress on Apr 20, 2015


Good news is, I guess, there's no more Jessica Alba ... One can not, at least, complain about that ...

shiboleth on Apr 20, 2015


how has having less Jessica Alba ever made anything better?

Astroboy3000 on Apr 20, 2015


well, she is eye candy, and that's all good about her (and definitely, not enough for me). But in any other sense, she's quite repulsive to me... Can't act, has mostly bad and unworthy movies ... She's a career woman, not an actress. That's ugliest thing about her ... Of course, you don't have to be on the same line with me ...

shiboleth on Apr 21, 2015


from the studios that brought u days of future past,, just in case u saw the trailer and and wondered wtf is this crap

dan persaud on Jun 17, 2015

dan persaud on Jun 17, 2015
