Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' release date gets moved again!
Yeah, this is will be the fourth release date for the Jonathan Liebsman directed and Michael Bay produced turtle remake, which is now set for August 8th, 2014.
So what's up with the move, Paramount? Well according to Deadline, we can all apparently blame Transformers. The most recent TMNT release date was for June 6th, 2014 but with the new Transformers 4 movie slatted for June 27th, Paramount wanted to have a little more space between both projects. And that probably has to do with the fact that there will be a large toy and merchandising component for both films, and the studio doesn't want you all to have to break the bank all at once to get your movie memorabilia.
But it is interesting to note that the June 6th release date would have put the turtles up against Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow, which could have been some competition at the box office, and while the August 8th spot is seemingly a little quieter of a weekend, it actually now puts the release one week after Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Which seems like a strange move.
Production recently wrapped on set of Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which stars Megan Fox and Will Arnet and production on his Transformers 4 recently begun which will star Mark Wahlberg.
So, do you think this new release date will bode well for the turtles? Can they follow Guardians of the Galaxy? And is anyone a little peeved that the release date has been moved yet again?
