Fantastic Four is letting international audiences see quite a bit more than stateside fans, releasing a U.K. banner that fully revealed Jamie Bell's Thing. We then got a new international trailer that showed both Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) and Sue Storm (Kate Mara) taking flight, using their powers as The Human Torch and Invisible Woman. Today, the domestic side of the Fox promotional push has released 4 new featurettes. Sadly, we don't get to see any new footage. These are instead extended sequences from the first Fantastic Four reboot teaser trailer that was released with commentary from director Josh Trank and producer Simon Kinberg.
The filmmaking duo offer new insight into the story and characters of the 2015 summer superhero release Fantastic Four. Each featurette specifically targets one of the four main actors in the movie, which include Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell. We learn how and why they were cast, and how this new origin story was largely inspired by the Ultimate Fantastic Four comics from Marvel.
Fantastic Four offers a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team. The story 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. Marvel's First Family will includes Miles Teller as Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), Kate Mara as Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman), Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm (The Thing).
Not included in these four featurettes are Toby Kebbell as Doctor Doom, Reg E. Cathey as as Dr. Franklin Storm and Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder, aka The Mole Man. Fantastic Four features a screenplay by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and is set to hit the big screen August 7.
