There’s less than a week before 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four hits screens, so it’s somewhat surprising that the first clip from the picture has been released now. Cautious marketing or a sign of uncertainty? Then again, maybe we’re overly thinking this.
The first clip sees Miles Teller’s Reed Richards quickly introduce Jamie Bell’s Ben Grimm to Michael B. Jordan’s Johnny Storm and Toby Kebbell’s Victor Von Doom, and then they’re off on inter-dimensional travel.
The buzz hasn’t been overwhelmingly positive for Fantastic Four, but we’ve got our fingers firmly crossed for something fun here. Hopefully.
Fantastic Four, also starring Kate Mara, Reg E. Cathey, and Tim Blake Nelson, hits Australia on August 6 and the U.S. on August 7.
