'Fantastic Four' Featurettes Explore The Cast

Josh Trank's new Fantastic Four film opens in August, but even though it is an "end of summer" movie from Fox, the studio is slowly pushing new promos out now as the season begins. A set of Fantastic Four featureless offers brief interviews with Trank and writer/producer Simon Kinberg, and they talk about each of the cast members hired to play the four major roles. "Because we wanted to be grounded and dramatic," says Kinberg," we went for the best dramatic actors." Check out all four short videos below.

There's no new footage here, but in one of the videos you will see a zoomed-in and slowed-down version of the Johnny and Sue Storm shot from the international trailer (pictured above), where they're both displaying their powers. The upshot there is that it's easier to see Kate Mara at the center of the FX bubble that surrounds her at the time.

In Kate Mara's featurette, you'll also notice that Trank says she and Jordan "have a very brotherly-sisterly dynamic with each other," which seems like a good way to dance around the slightly different family relationships in this version of the film.

Fantastic Four opens on August 7. Featurettes via Fox.

FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
