I watched the new Fantastic Four movie over the weekend. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent me the Blu-ray for review on my movie blog. The new FF film is a reboot of the 2005 Fantastic Four movie. Personally, I liked the original series better. I think it’s because the first film featured Chris Evans and Jessica Alba (in my dreams, she’s my girlfriend). Even though I thought the first FF movie was better, I think the reboot is still worth watching if you’re a fan of the superhero genre. Fantastic Four is available now on Digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on December 15th — just in time for the holidays. Continue reading to learn five things about the movie.
Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation did it again for the second straight week. Mission Impossible came in first at the box office by grossing $28.5 million over the weekend. Fantastic Four opened to a disappointing second place with $25.7 million. The Gift opened in third place with a surprising $11.9 million over the weekend.

According to multiple sources, the Fantastic Four will be rebooted and will feature Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as the Sue Storm/Invisible Girl, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/Human Torch, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing. The new Fantastic Four movie is expected to be released next summer. I actually liked the previous Fantastic Four films and was disappointed Fox didn’t make a third one.
