Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer - Trailer #2

From: By Bevans on Thursday, May 03, 2007

The first Fantastic Four movie certainly wasn't perfect, but it was overall a pretty cool flick. Actually, it was far more interesting seeing the main characters playing with their powers, trying to go about their normal lives, and bickering with each other than it was when they finally got down to fighting Dr. Doom.

And speaking of villains, this one features a doozy: The Silver Surfer. Well, that's not technically accurate, but I won't go further into that, lest I spoil it for the uninitiated.

Honestly, I was a little surprised that SS was going to be part of the FF movie rather than starring in his own movie first, but I guess it's kinda hard to tell the SS's story without featuring the FF. Rest assured, there will doubtlessly be spinoffs.

And what can I say about the Surfer? They did a really good job of making him look cool. A big shiny man flying through space could look really stupid, but fortunately they pulled it off. I guess they're using a special material to achieve that shiny look without CG for many parts of the movie. Remember how cheesy you thought the CG for Colossus looked in X-Men 3? Well, not all of that was CG either, and that's apparently the same stuff they're using here.

But what's going to be the true test for me will be how they handle Galactus. But if they can make the Silver Surfer, the Human Torch, and The Thing look cool, then they can probably get Galactus right too.
