Miles Teller, Michael B Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell star in director Josh Trank’s reboot of Marvel Comics’ superhero adventure. After creating a revolutionary prototype teleportation device during their childhood, Reed Richards (Teller) and his friend Ben Grimm (Bell) are later invited to join a research institute for budding prodigies. There, under the aegis of Professor Franklin Storm (Reg E Cathey), they join his grown children Johnny (Jordan) and Sue (Mara) to work on realising Victor von Doom’s (Toby Kebell) Quantum Gate, which is designed to open a path to an alternative dimension. The work succeeds. However, when they find out that other people have been chosen for the mission into the unknown, Reed, Johnny, Ben and Victor jump the gun and make an unauthorised journey to ‘Planet Zero’. But when their adventure goes wrong, Victor ends up lost in the other dimension, the survivors (and Sue) gain unwanted superhuman powers, and the ensuing disaster threatens the very existence of the human race.
