The Fantastic Four were a staple of comic books for decades before finally having a feature film released based on them, a film that came out on this day in history.

After a 1994 attempt to adapt Fantastic Four to the big screen went unreleased, a new movie based on the long-running comic was released on this day in history.

The comic had been running since 1961, and the film, like the comic, features the exploits of four people who gain extraordinary powers after being exposed to cosmic rays. The film offers a different interpretation of the series main villain, Dr. Doom.

Directed by Tim Story, the film received mixed reviews from critics, but made over $330 million on a $100 million budget, leading to a sequel two years later.
