Silver Surfer Rises at the Box Office

leave a comment »

So Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer managed to survive all the bad buzz and raked in an estimated $57.4 million during its opening weekend.

Honestly, I’m glad it did this well, because it’s been blasted lately for all the creative differences it has from the comics (Galactus…primarily), and all-in-all seemed to be written off before even giving it a chance.

I saw the film last night, and it was actually the most entertaining of the summer for me so far….That said, it wasn’t mind-blowing or the best movie I’ve ever seen.  I did have issues with some of the omissions and lack of development, but I left the theatre having been entertained.  It really doesn’t seem as short as an hour and a half movie would usually seem, which was good, because that worried me.

It’s probably going to suffer some major drops in a couple weeks when Transformers and Harry Potter come into theatres, but until that time comes, I suggest at least seeing this one once, and maybe even a repeat.

I’m starting to think Evan Almighty might be the huge movie-bomb this summer.  Literally no one is talking about the movie.  I may see it for Steve Carell, but I think movie execs should be concerned seeing as the budget was rumored along the lines of $250 million.
