Fox has released the first teaser for Fantastic 4 and I must say, its shaping up to possibly be… Fantastic (pun very much intended). P.s there’s an easter egg in there somewhere that could lead to the heroes doom.

The film is Directed by Josh Trank, who gave us the well crafted Chronicle, and stars Miles Teller (Reed Richards), Michael B Jordan (Johnny Storm), Kate Mara (Sue Storm) and Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm).

Though it comes out in August, this is the first we have seen of the reboot; As every part of information has been a well guarded secret. So much so that many questioned how much faith the studio had in the film and news of it being a “terrible film” started spreading.  This teaser does a good job of addressing these issues and I think they have done a great job.

Based off the Marvel comics, it seems that the film focuses on the science and tech of the F4; Which contrary to what most think, is the correct approach. The Fantastic 4 have always been best when they are portrayed as scientists and explorers, not superheroes. Director Josh Trank, said movies by director David Cronenberg were a huge inspiration for the films tone and its unique look; Which, in an age were superhero/scifi films can feel and look similar, is very much welcomed.

Fantastic 4 hits theaters August 7th.
