Trivia

The movie originally had the odds stacked against it by being wedged between three major blockbusters - it would have competed with Jurassic World (2015), which was slated to be released in the previous weekend, Inside Out (2015), which would be released the same weekend, and Ted 2 (2015), which was going to come out in the following weekend. Fox noticed this problem and pushed the release date back by two months, making it compete with Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015) and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015). Unfortunately, the move didn't help the movie at all once the bad word-of-mouth came around, and it ended up lagging behind Rogue Nation on its opening weekend. See more »

When the 20th Century Fox logo fades away, the F in the logo stays for a second longer before it also fades away. This parallels the Fox X-Men films, where the X in the logo stays longer also. See more »

A deplorable attempt at cashing in on something that didn't have a chance in the first place.
5 August 2015 | by trublu215See all my reviews

Fantastic Four started catching my eye in the casting stage. Seemingly not giving a damn about the source material, it was refreshing to see those kind of balls especially from Marvel. While I welcome Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch, I wish I could say the same thing about the rest of the film. Fantastic Four is merely a reboot that loses its steam after the first act. Coming in at just over an hour and a half, the film is a rushed piece of reject summer movie drab. The characters are paper thin and about 10 years too young for their respective roles. The visual effects are far from stunning, especially The Thing, whose transformation into the ghastly beast is something closer to a PS2 game than an actual film with a $100 million price tag. Miles Teller proves here that his performance in Whiplash is truly a fluke. As Mr. Fantastic, he struggles to sound like he knows what he is talking about. Perhaps a little more rehearsal time and a little less focus on that cheap looking silver streak in his hair could have benefited him. Kate Mara as Susan Storm is about as idiotic as it can get. Mara is a great actress, there's no other way about it but Kate Mara as Susan Storm is terrible and borderline embarrassing. The biggest shock here in this film is where all the controversy started...Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch. Jordan's ability to be a badass likable gear head is insanely good. He's the best part of this film by far. If there is anyone that could single handedly carry this film on their back, it is him. The film overall is too dark for Fantastic Four and too shallow for Marvel which leaves it drifting somewhere between ridiculous and not necessary...and at times, both. If there's any movie to see this summer, I can assure you, Fantastic Four is NOT it.
