The Fantastic Four movie 2015 team

This weekend, Fantastic Four debuted to an abysmal $26.2 million at the box office. Of course Fox’s reboot on Marvel’s first family had almost everything going against it. Disappointing reviews (8% on Rotten Tomatoes as of this post), the marketing looked like it had no faith in its own film, and major conflicts behind-the-scenes were just some of issues that may have contributed to its inevitable downfall.

Of course it didn’t help that director Josh Trank tweeted, then deleted, that he had a “fantastic version” of the film, and that we’ll “probably never see it.” This led many to believe that the studio got in the way of Trank, who was coming off of Chronicle, his directorial debut. What sort of vision he had in store for Fantastic Four will probably stay a mystery, but based on many of the reviews, the final act makes the film feel disjointed, rendering the first two-thirds of it moot.

Now there is a new report that describes what sort of problems the film was having, and how Trank and the studio were at constant odds. More on this story below.

Fantastic Four Space

Many doubted the Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four since plot and character details started hitting the web. Whether it’s the issue of Dr. Doom being an angry blogger, changes to the character’s powers, or trouble behind-the-scenes, it looked like the reboot was going to be a massive flop, not to mention the trailer lowered expectations. But a surprise advanced screening of the film may have proven doubters wrong, as the general audience who were lucky enough to see it had nothing but praise.

Now with just a few days left before the film’s release, 20th Century Fox is making one last push to convince you to see the reboot of Fantastic Four with an all new four-minute preview. The studio even got some help from a certain Merc with a Mouth. Check out the preview below.

Fox is making one last marketing push to promote the odd Fantastic Four. The film has gone through a few marketing struggles, with some acting uninterested after seeing the first two trailers, while some dedicated fans expressed their outrage towards how the marketing team descriptions changed the team’s powers.

In just a few weeks, though, the film will come out, and the studio has released one final trailer (which happens to be the same trailer shown at Comic-Con) to convince us that this is the Fantastic Four that fans have been waiting for. Check out the trailer below.

Simon Kinberg Expanding X-Men and Fantastic Four Universe

In March 2014, 20th Century Fox carved out release dates for several of their upcoming movies, including a July 13, 2018 slot for an untitled feature based one of their valuable Marvel Comics properties. Since the studio thought nothing of revealing their release plans for X-Men: Apocalypse, the third and final Wolverine solo movie starring Hugh Jackman (which is rumored to be an adaptation of the “Old Man Logan” miniseries), and the sequel to August’s Fantastic Four reboot, people started to wonder if this mysterious Marvel flick was the long-gestating X-Men/Fantastic Four crossover event that was first hinted at almost two years ago.

If rumors to be believed, Fox’s attempt to create their own Avengers-style silver screen Bacchanalia of superhero excitement could be happening in 2018 after all.
