According to The Hollywood Reporter, the latest superhero movie may have been just fantastic enough to snap Hollywood's longest modern losing streak at the boxoffice.

The comic-book adaptation Fantastic Four raked in an estimated $56 million during its first three days, apparently helping to end a swoon in which domestic movie revenues had been down 19 weekends in a row compared to last year's.

The top 12 films took in $141 million, up 2.25% from the same weekend in 2004, according to industry estimates Sunday. Numbers often drop slightly when studios release final figures Monday, but this past weekend still should come in ahead of last year's.
