After months of little to no information on the upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four, the seal was broken yesterday when director Josh Trank divulged the first concrete information about the film in an exclusive interview with Collider. Today, the first footage of the film was released, hushing any doubters of the film that still might have the previous Fantastic Four films stuck in their brains.
Naturally, the teaser trailer doesn’t show much, but it does establish the tone of the film, which Trank has gone on to describe as “hard sci-fi,” which alludes to taking the comic’s origin story and making it more grounded and realistic. Fans of the Ultimate Fantastic Four series may notice some similarities with this teaser, such as the think tank environment in which Reed Richards (Miles Teller) and Sue Storm (Kate Mara) are a part of.
With the proverbial cat out of the bag, expect tons more information in the months leading to Fantastic Four‘s theatrical release on August 7th.
