The Fantastic Four and the Silver Dude

With plenty of action, superheroes, and villains who just seem to resist death, the Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is definitely one summer flick that has received mixed reactions from critics and audiences. As a sequel to the 2005 Marvel comic flick Fantastic Four, director Tim Story was again the brains behind the second movie.

The plot picks off two years after the first movie. Sue Storm (Jessica Alba) and Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd) have decided to tie the knot when a silver surfer (Doug Jones) appeared and started to cause havoc on earth. The second Fantastic Four flick mainly revolved around the quartet’s adventures as they switched powers and battled the Silver Surfer to save earth. Movie highlights included the final showdown between Doom and the combined forces of The Thing and the Human Torch.

Despite the mixed reviews the flick received from various critics, it was able to hold the number one spot during its first weekend at the U.S. Box Office. Intrestingly, the total domestic gross garnered by the movie just roughly covered the budget. The domestic gross amounted to a total of $131.9 million while $130 million was the budget. During the 2007 MTV Movie Awards, the film was nominated for the award entitled “Best Summer Movie You Haven’t Seen Yet.”

If you can’t get enough of the Silver Surfer riding on his iconic surfboard, then grab a movie shirt that depicts the movie’s silvery villain. Set against a plain black background, the Silver Surfer shines through and makes the movie shirt a nifty collector’s item. Aside from a collector’s item, this movie shirt is a perfect gift idea for someone who has an alter-ego that loves to conquer worlds. You may not possess a cosmic-powered surfboard but having this awesome movie shirt can make your wardrobe more cosmic.
