20th Century Fox has released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot. The footage opens up with footage of nature that looks like it could have come out a Discovery Channel documentary before giving us our first glimpses of the titular quartet: Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Sue Storm (Kate Mara), Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) and Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan).
The teaser follows this foursome through an elaborate experiment, one that involves what look like heavy duty containment suits, all the way to their discovery of their powers. While we get glimpses of the Human Torch flaming on and a hint of Reed's stretching ability, we only get a silhouette shot of the Thing's rocky form and Doctor Doom (Toby Kebbell) is nowhere to be seen.
In addition to the trailer, Fox also released the first "Fantastic Four" poster. The minimalist image matches the trailer's tone and offers up a similarly dramatic take on the classic "4" logo. You can check out the trailer and poster below. "Fantastic Four" opens on August 7.
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.
