‘Fantastic Four’ TV Spot Introduces You to Four Extraordinary Subjects
“Shall I alert the fire department?” The latest TV spot for Fantastic Four has arrived, and it’s brought along a sense of humor, finally. So far, the trailers we’ve seen for Josh Trank’s reboot have been a bit gloomy and severe, with only tiny hints of a lighter tone in the chemistry between the four leading stars. To be fair, Ben Grimm still looks a bit, well, grim.
You’d probably be grumpy too if your buddies got to retain their human qualities while you were transformed into a big pile of rocks. Anyway, the new TV spot for Fantastic Four is brief and serves to give each character and their powers the spotlight: Miles Teller’s Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara’s Sue Storm aka the Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan’s Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch, and Jamie Bell’s Ben Grimm aka the Thing.
‘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 daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
Fantastic Four also stars Tim Blake Nelson, Toby Kebbell and Reg E. Cathey, and hits theaters on August 7.
