BOX OFFICE: Here's How Much Josh Trank's Controversial Tweet Cost FANTASTIC FOUR

It may have been Tweeted and deleted, but the Tweet from Josh Trank which saw him distance himself from the reboot has received mainstream media coverage. Now, box office analysts have figured out how much it likely cost Fantastic Four during its opening weekend...

Fantastic Four has been a fantastic flop for Fox this weekend, and while the reviews and terrible word of mouth ensured it was always going to disappoint at the box office, the hits just keep on coming for the reboot. Hours before the movie was set to open on Thursday opening, director Josh Trank Tweeted: "A year ago, I had a fantastic version of this. And it would have received great reviews. You’ll probably never see. That’s reality though." No big deal, right? Well, box office analysts tell The Wrap that Trank's comments likely cost the movie as much as $10 million! 

That's in North America alone, and had he not sent out that Tweet, it's possible that Fantastic Four would have debuted at #1 this weekend. However, the site adds that the filmmaker is unlikely to face any sort of legal ramifications for damaging the movie's takings (whether he'll get another job in Hollywood again is hard to say given how talking about behind the scenes issues like this are viewed by those in the business).  "We stood behind Josh’s vision for the film as we stand behind all of our filmmakers at Fox," Chris Aronson, Fox's distribution chief told the trade today. 

It could be a long time until we get to know the future of the Fantastic Four franchise, but you have to believe the studio isn't happy! Did Trank's Tweet put you guys off from seeing the movie?
