Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer


Last night, the FAA was forced to ground

all aircraft, leaving thousands stranded...

...when electronic failures

and mysterious power outages...

...crippled the western United States.

But the big story today...

... the much-anticipated wedding

of fantastic couple...

...Reed Richards and Susan Storm

will take place this Saturday.

Unbelievable. Bizarre anomalies...

...are occurring all over the world,

defying every law of physics...

...and all the media care about

is what china pattern we picked.

What did you pick? The blue ones

with them little flowers? I like them.

Excuse me, would you mind?

- It's happening again, isn't it?

- Yeah, sure.

No. We're not postponing

anything, not this time.

This will be the wedding you dreamed of.

I won't let anything get in the way.

Not even the mysterious transformation

of matter at the subatomic level.

That's the most romantic thing

you've ever said to me.

Which is really pathetic,

when you think about it.

Dr. Richards, I'm very sorry,

but we're overbooked.

- We do have seats available in coach.

- Okay, here we go.

- Smile!

- Awesome!

Look, Mom!

- Let me get one more.

- That should be fine.

That's my seat.


Excuse me.

What if we get an endorsement

from an airline? Get us a private jet?

I think we have enough

endorsement deals.

That's funny. Seriously, Reed, it could

help subsidize your little inventions.

- No, thanks.

- Excuse me.

- Consider it. Talk to you later.

- Where are you going?

I don't fly coach.

I hope it rains.

The snowfall came with no warning...

...and covered the pyramids

in 2 inches of snow.

In Japan, some suggest

the solidification of the bay...

...was due to underwater

volcanic activity...

...though no such activity

has been reported in the area.

Scientists have ruled out

global warming... the cause of the climatic events

being reported around the globe.

With scientists unable

to explain the events...

...some are wondering

if the hand of God is at work.

In other news, Reed Richards

and Susan Storm 's wedding...

...has Manhattan all abuzz.

The guest list includes

many of New York 's power elite.

Hey, honey.

The city's charging us for three

squad cars they say we destroyed...

...during that armored-car robbery.

I only remember two cars getting thrown.


All right. I'm putting it away.

You were saying?

I have a fitting in half an hour.

The musicians after that.

I haven't picked out the place settings

or the flowers. There's too much to do.

Don't worry about it. Between

the two of us, we'll get it all done.

And what were you doing

when I walked in?

- lnputting my to-do list.

- Really?

- Scout's honor.

- Hey, guys.

New uniforms showed up.

What do you think?

I think there's no way

we're wearing that.

What do you have against capitalism?

What's this?

- Just a little hobby of mine.

- Yeah?

Would it make a good toy,

or is it something science-y?

A little of both.

I'm both impressed

and disgusted at that.

Yeah. Sue says I'm addicted to it.

I wonder why she'd say that.

Hey, Johnny.

Keep it quiet, but I've cross-referenced

and analyzed the global disturbances.

They're caused by cosmic radiation, not

unlike the kind which gave us our powers.

Wow, that's really boring.

Listen, I have a very important

wedding issue we need to talk about.

Yeah, of course.

Your bachelor party.

No. Seriously, Johnny.

John. Focus-testing showed Johnny

skewed a little young.

Seriously, Johnny, no bachelor party.

It's just not my kind of thing.

Then do it for Ben. It means a lot

to the big guy. You'll break his heart.

He does have some

sort of rocklike heart.

I have too much to do

before the wedding.

I think Sue might have

a problem with it.

You know what Sue

would have a problem with?

If somebody told her

you were investigating... disturbances

and cosmic radiation...

...instead of focusing on the wedding,

like you promised.

- A bachelor party could be fun.

- Yes!

But no exotic dancers.

- This is it?

- I don't know anybody here.

I would have invited your friends,

but you don't have any.


Johnny, we had a deal.

They're not exotic dancers.

They're just hot.

You're Mr. Fantastic, aren't you?

That's so awesome.

Wow, you're really cute.

I'll need a pitcher with

the biggest handle you've got.

No problem.

Good evening,

and welcome to the Baxter....

Could I help you?

No, you can't use that elev--

Ms. Storm will be with your shortly.


Thanks, Roberta.

May I help you?

- We're here to see Dr. Richards.

- He's not here. Can I help you?

Yes. You can take me

to see Dr. Richards.



When the universe began, it was

no bigger than a marble. Then, bang!

It exploded.

And in a trillionth of a second... expanded exponentially into

what became the universe we know.

Wow, you're really smart.

Thanks, Candy.

That means a lot to me.

I love this song. Wanna dance?

- No, I don't.

- Yes, you do.

- Honestly.

- Come on, you'll be great.

I don't want to embarrass you guys.

Just loosen up. Have some fun.

That's it.


That's it.

- Guy really knows how to loosen up.

- You're not kidding.

There he is.



For him.

Shall we?

I think it might be clobbering time.

Sue. What are you...?

General Hager.

Let's talk somewhere private.

Unless you need to do Jell-O shots

off someone's stomach.

I was explaining to the girls

about how the big bang led to....

This was Johnny's idea.

I just went along.

How does Reed know the general?

A few years back, the guy was pushing

a new missile-defense system.

Reed testified that the

technology wouldn't work.

I'm here on direct orders from

the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Personally, I don't like sharing

sensitive information with a civilian.

Especially one who enjoys

the public spotlight so much.

Always a pleasure

to see you too, general.

What can I do for you?

As you may know, there've

been unusual occurrences.

Officially, we've downplayed their

significance, but we're concerned...

...these anomalies might pose a

credible threat to our national security.

These were taken by one of our

spy satellites three days ago.

- What is it?

- We hoped Dr. Richards could tell us.

I'm afraid I've never

seen anything like it. Ben?

I would say that it was a meteor,

but the trail's all wrong.

It's giving off its own energy.

Take a look at this.

These have been appearing in

remote areas throughout the world.

Field personnel estimate its diameter

to be 200 meters.

To find out what this is about, we need

a way to locate and intercept that object.

A sensor could be tied into

the Baxter Building's satellite grid.

We can pinpoint the location

of the object.

- Good. You'll build the sensor for us--

- I'm afraid I can't.


I'm getting married this Saturday.

I just don't have the time.

Richards, your country

needs your help.

Call Professor Jeff Wagner.

He's head of the
