We’re back in the bathroom of the cinematic calendar – the month of January – and this year we’re hitting the bargain bins to dig up some turds from the comic book movie genre. Grab some TP and “goggles up!” because this show is not pretty – this is Canuary!After his low budget superpower flick Chronicle impressed audiences – and, more importantly, the brass at 20th Century Fox – director Josh Trank became the latest patsy – er, steward – to lead the Fantastic Four film franchise. Contractually obligated to keep making movies to hang on to the film rights, Fox needed to put out another installment in the franchise with a 2-1 record of actually being released in theaters. Trank recruited a young, talented cast to build his house on and immediately trashed said house (and a certain rental property) and set everything on fire – and not in the cool Human Torch way. Sidelined during reshoots and locked out of the editing bay, Trank doubled down and threw the studio under the bus in a tweet blaming Fox for ruining the movie, and also lost his gig directing a planned Star Wars movie in the process. Of course, FANT4STIC, as the advertising styled it, bombed at box office and reviewers quickly named it the worst comic book movie in recent memory.
