New FANTASTIC FOUR Trailer and Poster Reveal Powers and Doom

The Fantastic Four reboot hits theaters in less than four months and Fox finally got around to revealing some significant footage from the movie on Sunday. Not sure if a new trailer for Fantastic Four was supposed to debut today, but once it leaked, Fox moved quickly to release an official version along with a new poster.

(See a trend here? Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer leaks. Marvel Studios releases it. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer leaks. Warner Bros. release it. Fantastic Four trailer leaks. Fox releases it. All trailers leak.)

Interestingly enough, this trailer leaked just as the Star Wars Celebration session focused on Fantastic Four director Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards' Star Wars Anthology movies was beginning. Thank was curiously absent from that session, citing the "worst flu of my life." There have been rumors for months now that Trank's time directing Fantastic Four went poorly and had put his Star Wars gig in jeopardy.

Anyways, the new Fantastic Four movie opens on Aug. 7 and stars Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Toby KebbellReg E. Cathey and Tim Blake Nelson.

Trank's reboot has gone in the opposite direction of the previous two Fantastic Four movies, going super dark instead of comical. I like this trailer, but I'm still having the same concern about the movie: It looks good, but it doesn't look like the Fantastic Four. It seems like Fox just wanted the name of the property (and to keep the franchise from reverting back to Marvel Studios) but wasn't interested in sticking to the source material.
