Oh, man. Here's early Friday box office report on MoviesWithButter.com:
Things just went from bad to ugly for Fox’s “Fantastic Four” reboot. After being panned by critics before opening today (9% on Rotten Tomatoes), the studio was hoping that it would at least open to decent numbers at the box office. Their expectations were already low, in the $40M range (the previous two opened to $56M and $58M, respectively). Now it looks like the troubled film will not even reach the already lowered prediction.
“Fantastic Four” opened on Thursday evening and picked up a “lukewarm” $2.7M.
Today, based on matinee figures, Hollywood Reporter is reporting that “Fantastic Four” will gross $12M by the end of the day, and that figure already includes the $2.7M figure from evening screenings on Thursday.
