I’m always a sucker for stories about production fiascos and movies that almost happened, and Roger Corman‘s The Fantastic Four is a bit of both. Corman made the low-budget flick in 1992 because German producer Bernd Eichinger wanted to retain the rights, and although filming was completed, the picture was never officially released. Naturally, this has led to all sorts of speculation and conspiracy theories as to why it was buried, and Marty Langford‘s documentary DOOMED! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s “The Fantastic Four” promises to go behind-the-scenes and provide some answers to what really happened with this unreleased oddity. The trailer looks promising, especially if you’ve never seen Corman’s lost superhero picture and want to know more about it.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer.
Here’s the brief synopsis via Facebook:
Doomed: The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s “The Fantastic Four” is a feature length documentary tracking the history of the troubled 1994 Concord-New Horizon’s/Constantin Films’ “production, “The Fantastic Four”.
