Since I don't speak Russian, there is not much I can tell you about the origin of the character posters for Fantastic Four: The Rise of The Silver Surfer that have just popped up on a Russian site and are now making their way around to our time zone. ???????????.ru has the posters of the Four alongside some pictures of the Silver Surfer. They kind of struck me as "glamor shots" -- well, as glamorous as you can make a character called The Thing. So, unless you are a dedicated collector of all things Fantastic, I doubt they'll thrill you all that much. It's not like I am the first to notice the Four's lackluster marketing tactics -- Erik had some news on the sequel a few weeks ago about how Fox wasn't exactly rolling out the red carpet for the film.

The first poster to make its way to the web (The Silver Surfer in all his glory with the word RISE) was definitely better than the head shots they have currently settled on. We have had a look at one trailer already and as the release date of June 15th gets closer, I would presume that we will get to see at least one more trailer for the film, and I hope some more exciting poster art. [Ed. -- On a semi-related note, Cinematical will have more interesting Jessica Alba-related stuff to bring you, probably by the end of next week, so keep an eye out for that.]
