I'm still not sold. That was my immediate reaction to this trailer, which does a good job of giving us an idea of the film's stakes, but is less successful in making the film look like a must-see. The chemistry between the four likable leads (Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell) seems to be very good and I like the idea of re-shaping the origin story around a bunch of young whiz kids. But overall, this trailer just left a very "Meh" taste in my mouth. None of the visual effects seemed astonishing, and many have compared the look and feel to The Amazing Spider-Man, which feels like an apt comparison. Fantastic Four has a lot of potential, but I will certainly be going in with a lot of doubts. The film hits theaters on August 7, 2015. Next up is the second trailer for the highly anticipated Jurassic World. Check it out below:
This isn't a perfect trailer and I would arguably say that it isn't as good as the teaser trailer, but after the clip fiasco last week, this was just what I needed to get me excited for Jurassic World. Chris Pratt and Vincent D'Onofrio seem to fit their roles perfectly and I like where the plot is going. A manhunt for one giant dinosaur set in a major theme park? Count me in. This movie looks like one heck of a ride and I'm really hoping that Colin Trevorrow has delivered something special here. I'm very excited for June 12, which is the day that Jurassic World is set to premiere.
