Director Josh Trank attempts to distance himself from the Fantastic Four bad reviews and we’ve got the details right here on Clevver Newsfeed. Who exactly is to blame for the overwhelmingly negative response to the new Fantastic Four movie? It looks like director Josh Trank is calling, “not it”. Currently sitting at a paltry 9% with critics on Rotten Tomatoes, the latest iteration of Marvel’s First Family seems to be a major misfire for Fox, but a recent tweet suggests that director Josh Trank is attempting to distance himself from the final product. In the tweet, Trank says quote, “A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would’ve received great reviews. You’ll probably never see it. That’s reality though.” Trank later deleted the tweet, but it seems to suggest that Trank didn’t feel he had the creative freedom on the film that he required which isn’t too uncommon when it comes to big budget studio films. Trank has long been rumored to have had a tumultuous relationship with the studio during production that likely lead to his exit from the 2018 Star Wars Anthology film focusing on Han Solo. That film will now be helmed by The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord. In a recent interview with EW, Fantastic Four co-writer and producer Simon Kinberg admitted to the challenging production on the film, but defended the movie and Trank saying quote, “We came in on schedule, under budget, [with] a movie that was pretty true to the original intent of the film. Whether people like it or not, it was his vision, which was more grounded, a much more real version of Fantastic Four….I think there was something about Josh’s identity that made him a good target. I’m not sure what that is.” Of course, in the end, it’s what the audience thinks and whether or not they show up and buy tickets. Despite the negative reviews, Fantastic Four is expected to win the weekend with projections of around $45 million, which would be lower than the original 2005 film and its 2007 sequel. That makes the planned 2017 sequel seem likely to be cancelled, but what do you think? Should Josh Trank take responsibility for the film or do you think the studio is ultimately to blame?
