‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer Breakdown: Take a Closer Look at the Super-Powered Reboot
While the first trailer for Fantastic Four left us a little puzzled, the recently released second trailer definitely made a bigger impression. We already knew Josh Trank’s take on the classic super-team was going to be a bit darker than the previous films, but the latest trailer reassured us that the reboot also has a sense of humor. But what else can we learn from the latest preview? Join us as we break down the new Fantastic Four trailer to see what clues it has to offer.
In our latest trailer breakdown, we’re examining Fantastic Four to reveal some hints about Fox’s reboot, which, up until recently, has remained rather secretive. Even if you’re a newbie to the franchise, our breakdown should help clarify a few things. We also slowed down some of the best parts of the trailer, like the rocky rise of the Thing, the quartet’s activated superpowers, and our first look at Toby Kebbell’s Doctor Doom.
If you missed anything in the trailer when it was released earlier this week, now’s a good time to take another look. Did you notice Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder, aka Mole Man? Or did you happen to spot Kebbell as Victor Domashev, before he transforms into Doom?
Fantastic Four also stars Miles Teller as Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm aka Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm aka Human Torch, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm aka the Thing. The film arrives in theaters on August 7.
