That FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER Trailer Explodes Onto The Internets


From AICN, "As far as I'm concerned, the jury is still out on this movie...although I suspect it will be a bit better than the first film (not that this would take much). I do, however, like the nature of this trailer; I wish more movies would promote themselves by showing extended sequences rather than barraging us with an endless array of sub-woofered smash cutting. This approach is an agreeable throwback -- I appreciate this, Fox.

A lot of folks are gonna be ripping on the Silver Surfer as looking like the T-1000 from TERMINATOR 2. To me, the T-1000 always reminded me of the Silver Surfer...which kinda came first...so I'm not too sure how this situation/criticism can be addressed (unless one just says something snotty like "the Surfer came first, bitches!", and leaves it at that).

Of course, the CGI used to realize the chromed out, super powered, shiny dude in this preview doesn't appear to be a radical leap forward from what we got in T2 back in 1991 (at least, it doesn't seem to be from this trailer)...which will no doubt compound the controversy."

Yeah, that's reasonably cool, but seeing Alba, Gruffudd and that pile of pudding just immediately reminds me of how wide they missed the mark on this one.

I concur that it looks cool but the surfer looks just like the T-1000.

I bet that's the best scene in the movie.
