Fantastic Four's new trailer paints a grim origins picture

The latest trailer for Fantastic Four gives us plenty of details about the upcoming film. We get to see the origin story of the group, get close-ups of the various characters and their powers, and see the threat that they must stop.

The movie gives the Fantastic Four’s origin story an inter-dimensional twist. Of course, the trip isn’t as smooth as they would have liked. And just four survive. Thankfully, it’s the four important ones. We’re given a better look at The Human Torch (Michael B. Jordan) in "flame on" mode, Mr. Fantastic (Miles Teller) stretching his limbs, The Thing (Jamie Bell) strutting his stuff, and The Invisible Woman’s (Kate Mara) unique capabilities.The question is, can they save the world from a threat that they may have unleashed? We will soon find out. And, as the group is warned, it will take everything they have.Fantastic Four will be released on August 6th.
