Watch: Trailer for 'Doomed!' Doc About Roger Corman's Fantastic Four
Uncork'd Entertainment has released an official trailer for the documentary Doomed!: The Untold Story of Roger Corman's The Fantastic Four, directed by Marty Langford, which is actually getting released on VOD + DVD later this year. As the title explains, the film examines the curious case of the 1994 version of The Fantastic Four, which was made by Roger Corman and distributed by New Horizons, but it was never actually released. The film has since ended up online as a bootleg, but this doc goes back and tells the complete story of how it all fell apart. "The average moviegoer doesn’t know that, ten years before releasing Tim Story's version, Roger Corman was asked to produce a Fantastic Four movie. Unbeknownst to cast and crew, the film was never going to be released though - and for a variety of reasons." Find out why in the film.
Trailer for Marty Langford's doc Doomed: The Untold Story of Roger Corman's Fantastic Four:
Chronicling the history of Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four (1994), DOOMED! features never before seen footage from the production as well as new on-camera interviews with cast and crew including Mr. Corman, Jay Underwood, Michael Bailey Smith, Joseph Culp, Alex Hyde-White and Rebecca Staab. Roger Corman's adaptation of the comic book superheroes was actually completed and ready to be released back in 1994, but was apparently so bad the studio never wanted to put it out and cancelled the release. Corman is known for making extremely low budget, cheesy films and this was another one of them. The doc is directed by Marty Langford, making his directorial debut. It first premiered at Comic-Con last year, and will be released this year. Uncork'd Entertainment will put out Doomed!: The Untold Story of Roger Corman's The Fantastic Four on VOD starting October 11th and eventually DVD in December. Anyone want to see this?

Moral of the story: If it looks like a POS, and smells like a POS, it's probably a POS.
