Many doubted the Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four since plot and character details started hitting the web. Whether it’s the issue of Dr. Doom being an angry blogger, changes to the character’s powers, or trouble behind-the-scenes, it looked like the reboot was going to be a massive flop, not to mention the trailer lowered expectations. But a surprise advanced screening of the film may have proven doubters wrong, as the general audience who were lucky enough to see it had nothing but praise.
Now with just a few days left before the film’s release, 20th Century Fox is making one last push to convince you to see the reboot of Fantastic Four with an all new four-minute preview. The studio even got some help from a certain Merc with a Mouth. Check out the preview below.
While the footage is pretty much the same, the preview does provide more details about the characters in the film. However, the story behind Dr. Doom (Toby Kebbell) is still unknown. We also get a better sense of how our heroes get their powers, and the government’s plan to use them as weapons, much to the discretion of the patriarchal Storm, Dr. Franklin Storm (Reg E. Cathey).
Now the Deadpool tease is really nothing to look at either considering it is pretty much the same teaser that we have seen before, just with a few oddball things slapped together, with the addition of a joke about patting yourself on the back if you have an erection lasting longer than four hours. But we will be able to see the full red-band trailer tonight on Conan.
We covered both Fantastic Four and Deadpool extensively during Comic-Con gaining some insight about what interested the actors about the film.
Fantastic Four opens in theaters this Friday, August 7, Deadpool gets a February 12, 2016 release.
