The first trailer for the rebooted version of ‘The Fantastic Four’ has been released. Watch it above.
This update – which is not connected to the Tim Story movies – has a brand new cast of young actors.
Miles Teller, currently starring in the critically-acclaimed ‘Whiplash’, plays Reed Richards AKA Mr. Fantastic.
Kate Mara plays Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan is Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and ‘Billy Elliot’ star Jamie Bell is Ben Grimm/The Thing.
Josh Trank – who earned rave reviews for his indie superhero flick ‘Chronicle’ – is on directing duties. Regular ‘X-Men’ writer Simon Kinberg wrote the script.
The duo have exclusively talked through the first trailer for Yahoo in the video below.
The storyline is based on the Ultimate Fantastic Four comics by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Millar, which resets the team’s origin story and makes the four main characters younger than the original versions.
‘The Fantastic Four’ will be released in the UK on 6 August 2015. Check out the new poster below.
