A quick look at Fantastic Four 2015 reboot
The 2015 Fantastic Four reboot stars Miles Teller in the lead role along with Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara, among others, in pivotal supporting roles. The film is a reboot of the iconic 2005 film of the same name. It tells the thrilling story of a group of teenagers who build a teleporter and gain mysterious superpowers that they use to help people. The official synopsis of the film on Disney+ reads:
''A young genius builds a portal to another dimension with help from friends and colleagues but an accident leaves one stranded and the others altered with unusual powers. Four years later, the stranded victor returns as a megalomaniacal conqueror and the others must put aside their differences to stop him as the Fantastic Four.''
Unlike the original Fantastic Four film, the 2015 reboot was a commercial failure and was also panned by most critics.
