Welcome to Multiplex Time Machine.

This weekly limited-run series is based on the idea that 2007 was a surprisingly great year in modern movie history. It saw bad movies, good movies, and GREAT movies, but more than anything, it saw NOTABLE movies. Every episode of this show will look at a release from that same week 15 years ago, in 2007.

2005's Fantastic Four was such a hit that its creators wasted no time getting a second movie into theaters, leading to 2007's Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, originally released on June 15. And in Episode 24, we'll essentially be using it as a way to talk about the state of superhero movies before the birth of the MCU.

Rise of the Silver Surfer was directed by Tim Story, from a screenplay by Don Payne and Mark Frost, based on a story by Frost and John Turman, and starred Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis, Julian McMahon, Doug Jones, and Laurence Fishburne.

Multiplex Time Machine is hosted by Jeremy Latour and Ian Averill.
