Good news for Silver Surfer fans
Tuesday, June 19, 2007 - reddit
There were some concerns that Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
was going to bomb in the theaters, and nuke any chance of the pending spinoff feature that has already been written
by comic & TV veteran J. Michael Straczynski. Defying a couple of extremely negative (and probably accurate) reviews, the film pulled in $58 million over this past weekend which should at least do nothing to hurt the prospects of the spinoff going into production, and ought to help it along considerably.
The film was produced for what today is considered a moderate budget of $130 million, meaning that while it'll have to pull twice that globally to break even, it's pretty much a lock at this point for that price, with that opening.
For those who were not impressed with this sequel, remember what I said. JMS has already penned the spinoff, so Mark Frost and Don Payne won't have anything to do with it.Topics: Film, Fantastic Four 2, JMS, Box office
