Release Date For TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Pushed Back Yet Again
Paramount Pictures' Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot was already pushed to May 2014 date from its initial Christmas 2013 bow, and was then delayed to June. Now, the studio has moved it even further down the summer schedule next year.
Paramount Pictures originally slated its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot (which is being produced by Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Liebesman) for a Christmas 2013 release, before pushing it to May 2014 due to script issues and again to June 6th of next year. Now, the studio has slated yet another release date for the tentpole: August 8th, 2014. Apparently, the reason for the delay is that Paramount didn't want the film to be released so closely to Transformers 4, which is scheduled for a June 27th debut (Deadline suggests that the fourquel may move to June 25th, as the first three films in that franchise all opened on a Wednesday).
The 5/16 date for TMNT (which recently wrapped production) would've pit the Turtles against Godzilla, while 6/6 would've seen them clash with Tom Cruise's Edge Of Tomorrow. Its new date places it a week after Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy. The relaunch stars Megan Fox, Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Danny Woodburn, Will Arnett, William Fichtner and Whoopi Goldberg. Are you looking forward to seeing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
