TMNT Reaches #1 with $65M Weekend; Sequel Announced for 2016



It was a weekend full of Turtle Power as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dominated the box office, dropping Guardians of the Galaxy to the #2 spot.

With a strong $4.6 million on Thursday night, Turtles ended the weekend with $65 million, beating early estimates of $40-$45 million.

To no one's surprise, Paramount announced early Sunday morning that the August hit would officially get a sequel, currently scheduled for a June 3, 2016, release. While no director or cast members are yet confirmed, Michael Bay will once again be on board as a Producer, and Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec will also be back as writers.

San Diego Comic-Con 2014 Paramount Presents "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"



I am home from Comic-Con and slowly getting back into the real world. I will be making detailed updates of events over the upcoming days and weeks.

First up is my video from the Paramount panel on Thursday, July 24. Convention rules don't allow the recording of the clips that were previewed, so this is everything except for those.


The clips we saw, I believe, were the same clips previewed to a handful of media last a couple weeks ago. They were April meeting the Turtles for the first time, and the snow chase from the Sachs estate.

Be sure to follow Twitter or Facebook tonight! I will be seeing a preview of the movie and will post some of my initial reactions, with a more detailed report to come in a day or two.

Pizza Hut Reunites with Ninja Turtles for Blockbuster Movie Partnership




The TMNT have a long history with Pizza Hut pizza, and this summer, with the release of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, these two forces are reuniting. The cornerstone of the partnership is the return of the popular Cheesy Bites Pizza, including a "hidden menu" of four special TMNT-style topping combinations.



The partnership goes digital with special online promotions that will be supported through Pizza Hut's social media accounts.
To kick off the promotion, Pizza Hut will host a #TBTMNT (Throwback Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) promotion on its Twitter and Instagram channels where fans are encouraged to post their old turtle swag or turtle costumes for chances to win gift cards and other prizes. More information can be found on the Pizza Hut Twitter channel. 
Leading up to the premiere of the Ninja Turtles movie, fans can learn the “turtle way” to cut a pizza “Katana Style” via a “Katana Cut” training video. Fans will then be able to order a pizza cut this way – in four Ninja Turtle-size slices instead of eight – to draw a closer experience to the film. 
In addition, the box topper for Cheesy Bites pizzas will feature an augmented reality experience for customers at home. Fans will have a chance to unlock extended footage from the movie and additional content through an interactive AR experience. 
All digital assets will also be housed on a new Tumblr page hosted by Pizza Hut. The page will provide an arena for fans of pizza and the Ninja Turtles to showcase memories and stories related to the Turtles and Pizza Hut for other enthusiasts around the world to enjoy.

Lifesize Pizza Thrower


Pizza Hut will reprise a legendary toy figure and fan favorite by unveiling a life-size version of the “Pizza Thrower,” which will make appearances at live events. Fans will be able to take charge of the iconic vehicle and fire Cheesy Bites Pizza props at targets, including movie bad guys like Shredder and the Foot Clan, and also enjoy a sampling of real Cheesy Bites Pizza.

"Ninja Turtles" Movie Tie-In Game Announced for Nintendo 3DS




Activision has announced a tie-in game for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. While the movie has a release date of August 8, the game just has a general release date of "August."

Nintendo Life reports:
[The game] will take the form of a third-person action game that will let players switch between the four turtles at any time. Each turtle possesses his own set of stats and skills, with Raphael, as a given example, centering on strength and Michelangelo focusing more on speed. Classic foes will show up as fodder to face off against, including the Foot Clan and Baxter Stockman's scientific abominations.

Interestingly, one of the released screenshots features Slash, obviously influenced by the character's appearance in the Nickelodeon cartoon. It seems likely that despite an obvious attempt to emulate the appearance of the movie, the game might not actually have much in common with it.

Social Media Campaign Reveals 4 New TMNT Posters, Trailer



Yesterday, Paramount launched a social media campaign encouraging people to tweet which Turtle "team" they are on through the website TurtleReveal.com. Once a Turtle reached an unspecified threshold of votes, a new character poster for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie would be revealed. Once all four posters were revealed, a new "exclusive" trailer was promised. By the end of the day, the Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael posters had been revealed. Donatello was then revealed this morning.


And, as promised, the reveal of all four posters was followed up with the release of a new trailer.

Packaged 2014 Ninja Turtles Movie Figures Revealed



After getting various levels of reveals over the last few months, we finally have some clear pictures of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie figures in their retail packages. Interestingly, these figures still have the "Ninja Turtles" title, while the movie has been officially changed to "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."

Check out these and close-ups of other figures at ActionFigureFury.com.

TMNT 2014 Movie Action Figures Revealed!




Here they are, finally, with no funny business or bad angles - the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie action figures. The nine figures of wave one consist of the four Turtles, Splinter, Shredder, April O'Neil, a Foot Soldier, and Undercover Raph. Of particular note is Splinter, as this is the first good look we've had of his character design.

Unfortunately, this compilation doesn't provide a very accurate look at the scale of the figures, although they look to all be about the same size. If this is the case, it won't be very true to the movie, which, as we've seen in the trailers, features a very large size difference between the Turtles and April. Although we haven't seen a clear shot of Splinter in the trailers, he is expected to be quite small, given that he is played by actor Danny Woodburn.

"New" TMNT Movie Trailer Shows All Four Turtles




A "new" trailer for the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie, release yesterday, unfortunately is basically the same as the one released about a month ago but with some new shots spliced into the end.


The new shots do give a better look at each of the Turtles, plus the quick glimpse of Splinter we saw a couple weeks ago. Not that this is much improvement over the original version of the trailer, this is probably the version that should have been released initially.
