Fantastic Four Fantastic Four wins at the box office
With all the big blockbusters that included Star Wars Revenge of the Sith, War of the Worlds, and Batman Begins, it took Fantastic Four to finally end the box office slump. So this would mean that the film with the lowest reviews saved Hollywood? You better believe it!

Fantastic Four Updates

As mentioned above, Fantastic Four is the first film to put an end to the Hollywood slump for 2005. According to the Los Angeles Times, the film's weekend-opening box office total was $58M, which was enough to push this weekends total box office numbers .4% higher than last year's. While this is great news, it is hard to imagine that the following weeks will generate similar numbers for Fantastic Four taking into account the negative press the film has received. The one thing that the film does have going for it is the fact that its target audience is younger teens, which could help further drive families into the theatre seats.

With these types of box office numbers the first question to now pop up is... What about a sequel?

According to the top dog of Marvel, Avi Arad, a Fantastic Four sequel is a sure bet. While discussing Fantastic Four with the LA Times, Avi Arad stated, 'Of course there will be a sequel. Now the constituency is much larger.' Now the next thing for Avi Arad to do is pull Tim Story [director of FF] and replace him with someone that can handle proper character development on multiple heroes [*cough* Bryan Singer].
