The reboot, starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B Jordan and Jamie Bell, opened to USD 26.2 million from 3,995 theatres, reported Ace Showbiz.
'Fantastic Four' is considerably one of the worst debuts for a big-budget superhero movie, earning even less than 2011 flop 'The Green Hornet' (USD 33.5 million).
'Fantastic Four' has been slammed by critics and got a C-CinemaScore.
On the first position is 'Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation', which defeated 'The Fantastic Four', adding another USD 29.4 million from 3,988 theatres for a domestic total of USD 109.5 million.
'Rogue Nation' took in USD 65.5 million from 58 territories for a foreign cume of USD 156.7 million and global haul of USD 265.3 million.
Placing the third was 'The Gift', Joel Edgerton's directorial debut. The movie launched to approximately USD 12 million from 2,503 theatres.
Coming behind 'The Gift' was the raunchy comedy 'Vacation' which earned another USD 9.1 million from 3,430 domestic theatres in its second week.
Rounding out the top five was Paul Rudd's 'Ant-Man' which garnered around USD 7.8 million after four weeks in theatres.
