'Tis the season for reboots and revivals, and Marvel's Fantastic Four is yet another franchise to get on the bandwagon.

Run a little differently from the versions that starred Ioan Gruffudd and Jessica Alba, the new film sees the awesome foursome teleported to an alternate universe, where their physical forms and abilities are drastically altered. With their lives no longer the same as before, they must learn to use their new gifts for good. That also means they get to save Earth from a friend turned foe (no guesses who that is).

Miles Teller stars as Dr. Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), with Kate Mara as Susan Storm (Invisible Woman), Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm (Human Torch) and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm (The Thing).

"I don't think we could possibly find four better actors to portray these characters in this version of the story" said director Josh Trank in an interview with Yahoo! Movies. "We wanted the movie to be grounded and dramatic and we went for the four most dramatic actors."

Fantastic Four opens in our local theatres on 6 August this year.
