NEW YORK (AP) — The flopping "Fantastic Four" put a major dent in the seemingly unbreakable armor of the superhero summer movie, amassing a mere $25.7 million in its weekend debut at the box office.

The surprisingly poor performance of the 20th Century Fox release put "Fantastic Four" behind "Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation," which earned $28.5 million in its second week, according to final box-office figures Monday. The fifth installment of the Tom Cruise franchise has made $107.8 million in North America since opening.
