Fantastic Four flops during it’s first week of release


Twenty Century Fox’s, “Fantastic Four” opened with a disappointing $26.2 million over the weekend, far below the expectations of low-40 million.

The film opened up with signs of failure, soon allowing “Mission: Impossible Rogue of Nation” to remain the  #1 movie with $29.4 million in it’s second week.

Both original movies of  “Fantastic Four” in 2005 ($56.1 M) and “Fantastic Four: The Silver Surfer” in 2007 ($58.1 M) opened with more money than the modern film in 2015.

Director Josh Trank, posted a tweet, (soon deleted) sharing his frustration and disappointment, a day before the film was released. According to the  The Wall Street Journal, filmmaker Trank shared, “A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would’ve received great reviews. You’ll probably never see it. That’s reality though.”

Rated in Rotten Tomatoes, the movie’s approval was only 9%.

In other news, Warner Brother’s action movie “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and Universal drama film, “Straight Outta Compton” will both be in theaters this weekend (August 14).
