INT’L TRAILER: Baton Rouge-Shot ‘Fantastic Four’

by Jordan McGuire on April 6, 2015

Above is an international trailer for the Baton Rouge-shot flick Fantastic Four. You can watch the initial teaser trailer here. Still no answers to the “Be ready for what is coming” dialogue but we’re getting closer.

The new international trailer shows us some of the same images we saw in the first teaser trailer. The newest installment brings the four a little closer and reveals their powers more individually.

We see Johnny “flame on,” we see Sue Storm’s blue force-field, we see The Thing’s massive rock crushing power and we see Reed Richard’s flexibility for a brief second.

The Interstellar-esque theme continues with this international trailer. The corn fields and the endless world destruction reminds me of the imagery in Christopher Nolan’s most recent sci-fi epic. After recently binge watching and finally finishing season three of House of Cards, I couldn’t help but love Freddy’s (Reg E. Cathey) methodical voice-over narration. Still no sign of Toby Kebbell playing Victor Domachev but I’m sure it won’t be long before he shows up.

Fantastic Four is directed by Chronicle helmer Josh Trank. The superhero film stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell.

The film wrapped in Baton Rouge in early August 2014 and is set to be released August 7.

The new Fantastic Four reboot will stray far away from the cartoonish films that precedes it. Chronicle director Josh Trank says that his new film will own the tone of a “dark Amblin movie.” Both Trank and writer/ producer Simon Kinberg say that they want to take the silliness out of the narrative and contextualize everything in a real world.

Trank and his team have done a good job of slowly but surely releasing small tidbits of the new film. We have learned about the cast a while ago. We saw their matching uniforms. We saw the trailer. And now, Empire has provided us with four new awesome stills.

These four stills don’t reveal too much, which is exactly what we want. The new four are young, seemingly naive, attractive and have so much to prove. Let’s see if they can succeed in a world where their powers aren’t necessarily overwhelming and completely dominant. No photos of the villain Victor Domachev yet, but I sense there are some on the horizon. Fantastic Four opens August 7, 2015.
