Fantastic Four (2005)

Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Production Budget: $100 million
Domestic Total Gross: $154,696,080
Tagline: "Prepare for the Fantastic"

Starring Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba and Chris Evans, this trite Marvel superhero tale centers on a team of astronauts who acquire superpowers after exposure to cosmic radiation. The plot drags so much that Peter Travers called the flick "egregiously awful," adding that the 2007 follow-up, The Rise of the Silver Surfer, was "plain awful in that way that makes you give up on life." That said, 20th Century Fox is at work on a threequel, and is in talks with Allison Williams for a leading role.
