This movie has had 1 hundred-and-one problems surrounding it.
I was looking forward to this movie when I first heard about it a couple years back for one reason: we live in a post-Dark Knight Trilogy era where superhero movies aren’t stupid and cheesy like the Jessica Alba Fantastic Four movies.
I assumed that the new Fantastic Four would have that new, dark edge to it that all superhero movies do nowadays.
Then I heard rumors about the problems on set, the release date being pushed back, Josh Trank (the director) maybe borrowing too much from his prior work Chronicle (one of my favorite films, by the way). Plus we hadn’t seen any images or footage from the film yet and it’s only 6-ish months away!
And it turns out I had so much to say about Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, I wanted to recommend the film, give you guys some time to see it too if you haven’t already, and then come back here and here my deeper discussion of the rest.
