If you took what Paper Towns took in previews out of the equation then the film would of only debut in 6th place and Inside Out would of been this weeks new number one.

Their were a few other new entries in this weeks chart, they included the big screen version of the BBC Three comedy program Bad Education which went in at number eight, comedy reboot of the National lampoon franchise with Vacation going in at number seven and horror sequel Sinister 2 which went straight in at number three.

Review: Fantastic Four

Fantastic Four 2015Directed by: Josh Trank.

Starring: Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B Jordan, Jamie Bell, Toby Kebbell, Reg E Cathey & Tim Blake Nelson.

Rating:Running Time: 100 mins.

The Fantastic Four, one of Marvel’s better known comic series, has had a rocky history when it comes to cinematic adaptations. The movie rights were purchased from Marvel in the 80s, and a movie was made to retain the rights which was never intended to be released to the public. Then 20th Century Fox bought the rights and made the first Fantastic Four movie to be released in 2005, closely followed by sequel Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer two years later, both of which were directed by Tim Story and were successful box-office performers, but were panned by critics and fans alike. Now, Fox has rebooted the franchise under the direction of Chronicle director Josh Trank. Read the rest of this entry

Trailer – Deadpool

Plot – A former Special Forces operative turned mercenary is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers and adopts the alter ego Deadpool.

Impression – Marvel finally attempting something a little bit different instead of the cookie cutter films that we have been getting over the last few years.

This is probably one of the only Marvel films i’m actually looking forward to seeing, the only other movie that has peeked my interest from the studio is Doctor Strange.

We will find out in 2016 if Deadpool turns out to be as entertaining as the trailer or as annoying as the character might get.
