    In a classic case of history repeating itself, 20th Century Fox has moved their 2007 superhero sequel Fantastic Four 2 off its 4th of July release date to June 15, two weeks earlier, presumably to get away from DreamWorks' Transformers, which laid claim to the holiday release date last year. <a href="http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=14560" target="_blank">Click here for the article on ComingSoon.net</a>.

    Thanks to <a href="http://www.billstoysandgames.com/" target="_blank">Bill's Toys and Games</a> for the news.

    Sucks that their movie comes out sooner rather than later, by a whole two weeks when filming has been done for ages at that point and all that's left is film-editting and sound synching?

    Yeah. Totally sucks. :p 

    Transformers for life!

    Talk about a lack of faith in your own movie.

    "Shit! We won't make as much money going up against another movie with a bigger named director and studio behind it! Let's change the date!"

    Marvel just would rather release it eariler so they get a spot at number one instead of going up agaist Transformers which appeals to the same people and be shafted to number too. Them being number one for at least 2 weeks makes them look better on paper then number 2.

    I'm sure the marketing department is thrilled. You know they had some Fantastic 4, July 4, blahbittyblah campaign, ala ID4 :redface2: , that they're not going to get to use again.

    That seems to make the most sense to me.

    Although I'm with PowermasterJazz when he said;

    Queseda's a dick.:D 

    And whatever gives Transformers more of an advantage, I'm all for. Even though I have my doubts about how the movie will turn out, if it sucks but does well, the better chance of a sequel that may be done right.

    That's good. Because I want to see both movies in theatres and not at the same time. I've read the FF comics for almost as long as I've been into Transformers. (Mid 80's) The first FF movie was pretty good, considering they had to make it for a mainstream audience, as opposed to just comic book people. I just know people are going to be bitching left and right about the Transformers movie..

    So yeah, I wanna see both movies.
