Adhering to the ol’ you-wait-for-a-bus adage, the trailers and promotional material for this year’s blockbusters are arriving thick and fast. Not to be outdone by Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice before it, Fox has debuted a new poster for Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four to coincide with the recent, foreboding trailer.
Bringing together the titular heroes for a dark and moody shot, one which dovetails with the darker tone of Trank’s vision, the one-sheet can be viewed down below in all of its superpowered glory. For the unaware, Fox’s reboot will tell a slightly different origin story than moviegoers are used to when it comes to Marvel’s First Family. Lifting story threads from the comic book arc known as Ultimate Fantastic Four, come August, Mr. Fantastic and Co. will be venture into another dimension in the hope of finding answers to humanity’s most pressing questions. But what happens when you open a door that can’t be closed?
Doom, that’s what. Specifically, as Fantastic Four fans are well aware, Doctor Doom is the big bad glimpsed at in the recent trailer and the overarching villain within Trank’s reimagining. Co-written by Simon Kinberg, the superhero flick has already secured a sequel for release in 2017, hinting at the confidence Fox has in the final product. As such, however the audience receive the film come August, there’s still plenty of time for the Fantastic Four – rounded out by Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell – to get acclimatized with their mysterious, newfound powers.
Josh Trank will whisk moviegoers to another dimension when his modern retelling of the Fantastic Four lands in theaters on August 7. While we wait, check out the titular quartet readying themselves for battle in the poster below.
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.
