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 Continues Summer-Long Ninja Turtles Promotion with Tribute to iconic Pizza Thrower Toy, Sampling of Cheesy Bites at Event

Comic Con attendees will have a new attraction to feast their eyes on this year.

The attraction weighs 2 tons. Stands 12 feet high. Took 7 weeks to build. And fires pizzas. From a custom cannon. Up to 30 feet! From a seat perched on top of turret.

Starting Wednesday at the Petco Park Interactive Zone, Pizza Hut will reveal a life-size, fully-functional “Pizza Thrower,” a nod to the classic TMNT toy and the latest way the pizza company is partnering with Paramount on the upcoming movie release.  The Pizza Thrower (rendering and video below, spec sheet attached) will be open to the public to try throughout the convention. The Thrower will fire faux Cheesy Bites Pizzas at Ninja Turtles enemies, and participants will receive free slices of the popular Pizza Hut pizza.

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.

TMNT Movie Trailer Previewed, Will be Online Thursday




Paramount has previewed the first teaser trailer for the upcoming TMNT movie (now officially titled "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" in the featured logos) at CinemaCon, a trade show in Las Vegas for theater owners. Among those in attendance were several representatives from various entertainment websites, who have posted descriptions of what they saw.

According to these descriptions, the trailer is voiced over by Shredder (William Fichtner), who tells April that he has worked with her father to create the Turtles. And thus, the tagline given is "Heroes Are Not Born - They're Created."

The other big reveal is the Turtles themselves. Although we've seen posters and toys and (creepy) Halloween costumes, we still haven't seen the fully CGI-rendered, moving Turtles as they will actually appear in the movie. However, we DO see them in this trailer. Unfortunately, reactions to how the Turtles do actually look haven't exactly been positive...

Meredith Woerner from ion.com writes:
The best way to describe the look of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is giant, galumping, green babies. Like the baby masks that costume shops sell on Halloween, only as turtles. Similar to these babies below — but with Voldemort's nose and very, very childlike eyes. It's very jarring, but kind of what we expected.
Although filming of the trailer was obviously not allowed, this still of Megan Fox (April O'Neil) and Will Arnett (Vernon Fenwick) from the movie was shown and allowed to be photographed.

Read all of the descriptions for more details:

For those of us not at CinemaCon, word is that the trailer will hit online sometime Thursday morning. And then you can catch it on the big screen before Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

So, how bad does this seem to you? Or are you excited?

First "Ninja Turtles" 2014 Movie Poster



This poster for the upcoming "Ninja Turtles" movie has been spotted in the wild. In the poster we can see yet more details of the individual look for each Turtle. The poster also retains the logo from a very early teaser poster spotted last year.

A version of this photo was first spotted on Instagram, with a member of the Technodrome forums finding the clearer shot seen to the left. This is part of a display at the Nuremberg Toy Fair.

First (Sort Of) Image of 2014 Movie Turtles



It's not a very good sign that less than eight months out from the release of the movie (due August 8 - still my birthday!) Paramount still hasn't released even the smallest teaser for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. However, with all the product tie-ins in development getting ready to be solicited to buyers and distributors, images and information are going to start leaking.

A few weeks ago we had a description of what the new action figures would look like, and now we have an actual image of one of the Halloween costumes. And I can confirm that this image is real, NOT fake.

Obviously, like most Halloween costumes, the quality is pretty low, but it does give us a good idea of what we can expect the full CGI Turtles to look like. Basically, a (kinda creepy) human head design with an assortment of clothing, which will be different for each Turtle.

With Toy Fair next month, we will soon be seeing plenty of pictures of the new toys, which will give us an even better idea of what to expect. Heck, maybe one of these days we'll actually get a trailer!
