'Fantastic Four' Director Josh Trank Says His 2015 Film Was Just 'Alright'

Trank took to Letterboxd to write his own review four years after the released film was panned

  • “By The Sea”
    After failing to captivate audiences and critics, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s “By The Sea” will live on as a vanity project versus an interesting lens on the world-famous couple.



  • “Jem and the Holograms”
    “Jem and the Holograms” looked troubling from the start when fans noticed the beloved ‘80s cartoon was given a contemporary makeover. Ultimately, this bird won the worst box office opening of the year, with a paltry $1.4 million opening weekend.


  • “Rock the Kasbah”
    Bill Murray finally proved he wasn’t bulletproof, as Barry Levinson’s “Rock the Kasbah” translated as self-indulgent and, unfortunately, seen by few.

  • “We Are Your Friends”
    Despite millennial obsession Zac Efron and voluptuous model Emily Ratajkowski, “We Are Your Friends” wound up standing alone and irrelevant.

    Warner Bros.

  • “Aloha”
    The Cameron Crowe film was seemingly doomed once exchanges about its making was included in the Sony hack. But who could’ve anticipated movie stars like Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone would ever have such a flop on their hands?


  • “Mortdecai”
    “Mortedcai” was sourced from the cult novel and cast with Johnny Depp and trusty “Iron Man” leading lady Gwyneth Paltrow. But its mustachioed shtick lured absolutely no one.


  • “Fantastic Four”
    Proving yet again that a Marvel project nurtured outside the walls of Disney does not resonate quite the same, Fox’s “Fantastic Four” didn’t just overcook — it burned the house to the ground.

  • “Jupiter Ascending”
    “Jupiter Ascending” wasn’t just overdone — it burned three stars in the process: a previously infallible Channing Tatum, a lured-from-motherhood Mila Kunis and a newly-minted Oscar winner in Eddie Redmayne.

    Warner Bros.

  • “Pixels”
    The Happy Madison Productions film was crushed by critics for its absurdity, and also bombed at the box office. It had a production budget of $88 million but only made $79 million domestically.


  • “Pan”
    Fans were upset that another Disney classic was being remade into a film that turned out to be disappointing – the only thing that saved the film was its colorful set design.

    Warner Bros.

  • “Hot Pursuit”
    With terrible reviews, many criticized the film’s lack of comedy although both stars are stellar comedic actresses. The film opened to a meager $4.2 million in May.

    Warner Bros.

  • “Entourage”
    The TV to film adaptation was highly-anticipated, but disappointed fans in the end — it holds a Rotten Tomato score of 32 percent and barely broke even at the box office.

    Warner Bros.

  • “Blackhat”
    Not even the film’s stellar cast, including Chris Hemsworth and Viola Davis could save the movie from bombing. Critics blasted the scripts and the actors, bringing its rating to 34 percent.
