Starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B.
The Fantastic Four were previously brought to life in Fantastic Four (2005) and its sequel, Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007).
Fantastic Four opens on August 7th.
The story centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and unsafe universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
The first poster is set behind the city skyline, with the face of Doctor Doom (played by Toby Kebbell) appearing in the background. Arriving on the brink of San Diego Comic-Con, the stills are an effort to drum up excitement for the film’s panel during the course of the event, which both Simon Kinberg and director Josh Trank will host in the famous Hall H. The Fantastic Four (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) will hit stores a week later and is mostly composed by Marco Beltrami and Phillip Glass.
