There’s another superhero movie coming up this year that we all tend to forget: the Fantastic Four reboot.
It’s not that we don’t like the Fantastic Four or we don’t care about it… it’s just that after the horrible past experiences, the faith has been lost. It doesn’t help that the people in charge of this new version haven’t really done anything to promote it and build some expectation.
But hey, it’s happening, and the first trailer could come to us really soon.
According to Bleeding Cool, the first trailer for Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four will be attached to the UK premiere of Kingsman: The Secret Service, on January 29. Fox PR also added that “a majority but not all” of the UK screenings will be showing the trailer.
If you are looking forward to this movie, I sincerely hope that the theatre you go to will show the trailer. If you don’t care about it, I sincerely hope you enjoy Kingsman: The Secret Service.
The secrecy surrounding the movie, instead of building anticipation and excitement, has just made people forget about it and not care. Add the rumours that say it really is a mess and well, nobody can judge us for forgetting about it.
Even though we all know it has all the potential to truly be a mess, Fox and the team are doing their best to spare the rumours and act cool about it. We appreciate it, but we still think this movie is not a good idea.
“To confirm – Fantastic Four will be doing 3-4 days of additional photography with director Josh Trank and some key cast members. We are very excited about the film and can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been up to. And you will be able to do that very soon as I can confirm here that the teaser will be on Kingsman in theatres February 13,” reads a message sent by screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg before the January 29 date was confirmed.
There are stories and characters that function perfectly on the comics, but they don’t necessarily function properly on the big screen. This is exactly what I feel happens with the Fantastic Four (and Hulk. Sorry).
This new movie could prove me wrong and be the biggest surprise of the year, or could prove me right and it will be yet another movie we all want to forget it ever happened. We’ll see.
The Fantastic Four reboot will star Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell.
Fantastic Four will be released on August 7th. If you want to watch the trailer, then Fox will most likely release it online. Before then? Check out Kingsman: The Secret Service on January 29.
