As the summer movie season starts winding down, one more superhero movie will vie for box office supremacy this weekend, as 20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four takes on last weekend's winner, Paramount's Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation.

Fantastic Four currently has a paltry 10% "Rotten" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but we'll have to wait and see if audiences still show up in droves despite this harsh critical reception.
