Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer Teaser Trailer

I am not a fan of the first Fantastic Four; I’d say the original Corman movie has more heart, though Jessica Alba is a lot more scrumptious. However, I do kind of like this teaser because it’s not your typical “insert tagline/hans zimmer score.” Instead, they’ve opted to show a mostly intact scene from Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer. That’s the good news. The bad news… I still don’t really care for it. I’ll comment in the Read More.

1. I think I just don’t like Johnny Storm. I remember hating this actor in Cellular, that piece of shit, and thinking he was just a prick, and not a lovable prick, in Fantastic Four.

2. I love the cameo of Brian Posehn AKA the weird fucking dude from Mr. Show as the priest marrying the unlikely couple.

3. I don’t get the Silver Surfer. So yeah, they give him a new power (the ability to warp through shit), but what’s his deal? He comes to Earth and just wants to fly around getting noticed, grinding on buildings in one case, warping through them the next… only to grab Johnny and extinguish his flames in the atmosphere (which is neat). ? I don’t know enough about the comics, it makes me want to learn more, but it just doesn’t make a lot of logical sense… a problem I had with the first Fantastic Four.

4. Johnny Storm as human fireball. I’m going to assume that Johnny is a self-contained fire, because otherwise, wouldn’t people and cars and shit explode into flame as he streaks past? Oh yeah, that’s right, it only happens selectively… like if he’s cruising past a tree it lights up, but a little old lady in a cotton shirt, she’s fine. Yeah, that’s right. I’m nitpicking, I know, but this is the franchise I love to hate.

5. Ben Grimm still doesn’t look good to me.

The end.
