‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Moves to August 2014

Paramount Pictures has shifted the release date of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from June 6, 2014 to August 8, 2014. Director Jonathan Liebesman's live-action remake will now go up against Universal's Dracula and Disney's The Hundred-Foot Journey. It will also open one week after Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.

The move was made so that the studio could give it more space away from their other big-budget tentpole, Transformers 4, which is set for release on June 27, 2014, but will likely shift to June 25, 2014 since previous movies in the franchise have opened on Wednesday in the past. Since both movies will have immense marketing and merchandising campaigns, the studio thought it would be best to put some distance between the two.

Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher star as the turtles, with Megan Fox portraying reporter April O'Neil and Will Arnett playing her cameraman, Vernon Fenwick. Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes is behind both Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers 4.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released August 8th, 2014 and stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek, Johnny Knoxville, Jeremy Howard. The film is directed by Jonathan Liebesman.

    Moving to August could help it. I think if it came out in an already heavy 2014 summer then it could have been crushed.

    @skywise agreed I don't wish nothing bad on the turtles at all

    The studio really shows faith in a project when they push it back so it doesn't get destroyed by a minor movie in my opinion.

    @monkeyiron2-0 Yes but @therealGoku is generally skeptical (which isn't a bad thing, mind you). He has the right to be after all.

    I got nothing to say about this at all because like @therealGoku said it can go two ways good or bad
