The superhero reboot "Fantastic Four" flopped at the box office, opening with only $26.2 million and casting doubt on whether the 20th Century Fox franchise will continue, according to estimates Sunday.

“This turned into a nightmare for Fox,” Jeff Bock, an analyst with Exhibitor Relations, tells Variety. “Everything that could go wrong went wrong and the whole thing fell apart."

Despite a promising young cast of Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan, "Fantastic Four" couldn't overcome bad reviews, including a slam from its own director, as it failed to unseat "Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation" atop the U.S. box office.

The fifth "MI" movie starring Tom Cruise collected $29.4 million in its second week to bring its total to $108.7 million.

"The Gift" finished third with $12 million, a great showing for the $5 million-budgeted film.
