Fantastic Four Drops 69% In Second Weekend At Box Office

With reviews ranging from so-so to down right horrible, Fox's newest attempt at launching the Fantastic Four is looking to be anything but.

Premiering last weekend, it failed to capture the top spot of the weekend and only managed to get around $25.6M. This past weekend, Fantastic Four only garnered just an additional $8M, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which is a 69% drop. Fantastic Four also dropped two spots in the ranking, taking fourth place right below the recently premiered The Man From U. N. C. L. E. .

With an estimated budget of $200M, which includes marketing and distribution costs, Fox is definitely looking to take a hit on this one. The worldwide gross is a little more promising as it cracked $100 million over the weekend. Fantastic Four has made $41.9 million at the domestic box office and $60.1 million at the international box office to date.


Despite this news, Fox is still scheduling a sequel for 2017.
