Fantastic Four (2015) -  Jamie Bell , Michael B. Jordan,, Miles Teller, Kate Mara
The trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four dropped today. There have been a bunch of rumors that the film is in trouble with executives complaining it's confusing and too much like Chronicle. There are also reports of major re-shoots. Presumably to head off the rumors, 20th Century Fox released this teaser trailer. There's not much in it to look at, so we're not doing one of our obsessive trailer breakdowns, but we'll give you the highlights. In a reversal of what we normally do, we'll be asking you questions about the trailer.

Here's the trailer


Here's the official Fantastic Four movie synopsis:
"The FANTASTIC FOUR, a 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 new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy."

As was rumored they've changed the origin from scientists exploring space and being hit by "cosmic rays". Miles Teller plays Reed Richards AKA "Mr. Fantastic", Kate Mara plays Sue Storm AKA "The Invisible Girl", Michael B. Jordan plays Johnny Storm AKA "The Human Torch" , Jamie Bell plays Ben Richards AKA "The Thing" and Toby Kebbell plays Victor Domashev AKA "Doom".

1. Six people go into the teleporter. Who are the others and what happens to them? Do they get powers too or are they dead?


 
2. Doctor Doom is now a blogger named Victor Domashev who goes by the nickname "Doom." Why is he visiting the project?


3. At the (:45) mark we see an IP address 23.21.190.125 which points to the official Marvel page for Latveria (now a google search for Latveria in maps). Why?

4. Johnny Storm's father, Dr. Franklin Storm (played by Reg E. Cathey) is Black and is a scientist on the project. There has been a lot of speculation that Johnny Storm, who's White in the comics, would be adopted. Is Sue Storm adopted or the step-daughter?


5. We get a good look at The Thing. What do you think he looks like from the front?


6. The voiceover is ominous. Could this be the voice of Doom that actor Toby Kebbell said he was working on?

Good questions. Especially the fact that six go in, but there are only four of them.

I've had a bad taste in my mouth for a while on this one. I might go see it if I have extra cash laying around, and some extra time, otherwise it will have to wait. Doom is one of my favorite baddies, so if they screw him up again there will be heck to pay!

Well, from all heroes taken to movies, the Fantastic Four are like the least interesting to me. Or maybe it is because the previous movie was so boring and disappointing to me that they fell from the dragon's grace.

Why does everyone think that Fox own the fantastic four rights? The official trailer in Germany is on the Constantin page https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dPDKYUPml64 and http://www.constantin-film.de/kino/fantastic-four/ as well as the marvel film wiki http://marvel-movies.wikia.com/wiki/Constantin_Film

As people go on about the chance of a cross over between foxs xmen and "foxs" fantastic four I sit wondering where the rumour started... I think it may have been here with the poster.

Anyway I hope they do Dr Doom properly, but also I hope people stop going on about hoping for xmen cameos and the like. It's like expecting spiderman to swing across the screen in my opinion.

This reboot looks like it should be pretty decent
