I’ve actually enjoyed a handful of Fantastic Four promos, but four new character videos just popped up on the film’s official Twitter account and they’re all pretty dull. There’s no footage in them, just digital imagery exploring the “microscopic anatomy” of the characters paired with voiceover from Reg E. Cathey‘s Franklin Storm. Yes, the pieces do reveal important information about Reed Richards (Miles Teller), Sue Storm (Kate Mara), Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell), but the presentation makes it all feel a bit hokey and forced.
Check out the new Fantastic Four character videos for yourself below. The film hits theaters on August 7th and also stars Toby Kebbell.

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.
