The time has come! Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four is finally making its way into theaters and in honor of the big debut, I got the chance to sit down with Miles Teller, Jamie Bell, Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan for a round of “Would You Rather.” They lead the film as Reed Richards, Ben Grimm, Sue Storm and Johnny Storm respectively. When Reed’s high school science fair project catches Dr. Franklin Storm’s (Reg E. Cathey) eye, he’s whisked off to the Baxter Institute to help build a device with the capability of teleporting users to another dimension. When the foursome puts the technology to use, they wind up acquiring incredible abilities that change their lives forever.
You can watch Teller, Bell, Mara and Jordan choose between motion capture and prosthetics, gaining weight or losing weight for a role, getting to do as many takes as they’d like or having to nail it in one and so much more in the video interview below. I’ve also got a one-on-one chat with Toby Kebbell coming your way soon, too. Fantastic Four hits theaters nationwide on August 7th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Fantastic Four:
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.
