Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Seems the studios are unloading all their cool promos for the big geek flicks of 2007. GRINDHOUSE, TRANSFORMERS and Fantastic Four 2...
The trailer sounds great, even to someone who not only didn't like Tim Story's first attempt, but who was flat-out offended by what he did the Four. No matter what I think of the pedigree for this sequel, the idea of seeing the Silver Surfer on the big screen makes me smile.
Now, USA Today got to debut the Surfer. My first impression... I'm not impressed. Why does he have eyes? One of the things I've always loved about the surfer is his lack of easily readable emotion. Especially at the beginning. His face and, presumably, voice are all we need... I want to see him move before I make any sort of final judgment on the design, but hopefully I shine to it a little more when I see it moving. Check out the image below and let me know your thoughts.
