New FANTASTIC FOUR Trailer Opens New Dimensions

Ok - this trailer opens the door wider for me for these characters and the story. Dimensional travel definitely pulls me in if they can realistically pull off the concepts well enough. Of note is that Weta Digital, OTOY and Moving Picture Company are doing the VFX. Weta Digital EXCELS at creature effects. One would assume that they each traveled to different dimensions to attain their radically different abilities so therefore we are probably in line to see at least 4 different environments - maybe a fifth as it appears Doctor Doom is arriving from one them as well - a plane of hell perhaps?

Director Josh Trank (CHRONICLE) tells my buddy Steve at Collider:
“We’re definitely imagining the story in 3D as we’re making it, and it has powers that are well-suited to telling the story in 3D—not just Reed, but you have somebody that is on fire, and that’s something that can be immersive and scary. The reason to use 3D in this Fantastic Four, I think, is to make the experience feel as immersive as possible, where you feel like you’re with the characters looking at themselves and looking at each other with these bizarre powers and feeling like they’re really interacting with you.”

Having this sort of basis for the movie solves a lot of issues I have had with past attempts, but again Fox needs to deliver.

Here's the storyline for the movie:
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.

FANTASTIC FOUR opens in theaters on August 7.
