SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Red Alert -


Any film that dares to smug­gle hard sci- fi con­cepts and full- on body hor­ror into a block­buster is al­right in my book. It may lack the pri­mary colours of the comics but this looks great.


Con­sid­er­ing the snark of the orig­i­nal comics this trailer is very much a hu­mour- free zone. Would have liked to have seen a bit more of their pow­ers too. Not feel­ing it from this, but it’s only a teaser.


Af­ter the fun of

Guardians, I was hop­ing the re­boot of

Fan­tas­tic Four would go that route but it cer­tainly doesn’t look likely. Noth­ing in the vi­su­als gave me any pal­pi­ta­tions.


I’d been rolling my eyes at the thought of an­other but this looks good. I’m hop­ing they ditch the “Fan­t4s­tic” ti­tle graphic though – am I the only one who wants to pro­nounce that “fant- four- stic”?


Fan­tas­tic Four was my favourite comic book as a kid – I loved the colour, the flip, Man­hat­tan­ite wit, the mind- melt­ing imag­i­na­tion. This trailer sells me none of that. It’s the FF but not my FF.
