Fantastic Four (Teaser) and The DUFF Trailers
In an attempt to once again reignite the longest running Marvel superhero team, Fantastic Four hit theaters this summer. Chronicle director Josh Trank reintroduces us to the quartet of young scientists who gain superhuman abilities after an experiment goes wrong. Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell star as the Fantastic Four and the film's debut teaser trailer (below) is definitely worth checking out.
This February while the Oscars take center stage, an under the radar comedy may be the next big teen hit. The Perks of Being a Wallflower supporting star, Mae Whitman, headlines Ari Sandel's debut directorial effort, The DUFF. After a high school senior receives the unflattering news that she's the "designated ugly fat friend" (DUFF) in her group of friends, she attempts to reinvent herself and destroy this social stigma that's been placed upon her. I was impressed by the latest trailer for The DUFF and I'm curious to see if it can stand out in the teen genre.
