Fantastic Four is bound to arrive in theaters August 7th 2015. Initially programmed to hit the big screens in early March and then postponed to November 2013, it will hopefully be a wrap by 2015. We've heard a lot about the keenly awaited reboot of the franchise. Miles Teller is particularly vocal about the production, and it is to him that we owe the expectation of a soon to be released trailer.
Or are our expectations set too high?
20th Century Fox takes a stand: no trailer for Fantastic Four until necessary
According to Simon Kinberg, the lead screenwriter, no trailer, not even the faintest footage will be made public until deemed necessary. Why rush into putting out the material? His stance surely amends the way we all consider trailers. All the more there are precedents that teach us a poorly concocted teaser does no justice to anyone. Let's remember the disappointing trailer of Green Lantern: it mostly discouraged the public instead of rising interest and curiosity.
However, we're only months away from the official release date. A footage, however below par, works, in such an advanced stage of the production, as a proof. A confirmation that cameras are rolling, actors play and that everything is in place with Fantastic Four. Apparently, 20th Century Fox prefers to play safe and increase suspense.
And a handful of certitudes
We know the lineup and he crew, the synopsis and even details about changes in some important characters. Doom, for instance, is the typical villain, but with a twist that enhances the realism of the character. According to Teller, this is a general adjustment and, to his opinion, what will turn Fantastic Four from one of the lowest selling comic book adaptations into a sellout.
Teller and his colleagues don't necessary and always parade the confident attitude of an actor aware of contributing to a hit. But anyone reads what they can or prefer in what stars celebs publicly speak or behave. However, did Miles Teller speak lightly about the trailer of Fantastic Four when interviewed by MTV? No one knows "when they’re going to show it", says Teller. And his immediate reassurance that it will "soon" happen does no good either.
