Turtles Slice Guardians at the Box Office

turtlesDespite horrible reviews and lots of “controversy” leading up to its release, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles debuted with $65 million. That’s the fourth biggest August debut in history. That amount put it in first place for the weekend, beating out last week’s champ Guardians of the Galaxy. Guardians dropped 56% and brought in somewhere between $41.5 million. That brings the film to a two-week domestic total of $175.9 million.

TMNT has earned a 19% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but the horrible reviews clearly didn’t deter people from coming out for it. The audience gave the film a “B” CinemaScore. Paramount also announced a sequel is set for June 3, 2016. The film’s audience was 61% male, and 55% over the age of 25. Hispanics made up 36% of the audience.

In other “comic movie news,” Brett Ratner’s Hercules, based on the Radical Comics series, slipped to seventh place in its third weekend. The film has earned $63.4 million in the U.S.

Fox’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes fell to the ninth spot and earned $4.4 million. Its total is now up to $197.8 million.

Kraft Goes Old School With Vanilla Ice’s TMNT Ninja Rap

This is from back in February, but I completely missed it. Kraft has a marketing campaign tied into the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. Instead of focusing on the upcoming big budget film, they’ve instead mined some TMNT history with an appearance of Vanilla Ice who provided is the Ninja Rap in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze.

What’s great to me? The fact the mother depicted in the film is about the right age to have been aware of the movie, Vanilla Ice, and the rap.

This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fails Marketing 101

When you’ve got a big budget movie coming out aimed at kids, reminding folks of 9/11 probably isn’t the best marketing movie. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8 here in the US, but it opens September 11 in Australia. To promote the movie, Paramount Pictures’ Australia branch released a poster. Unfortunately that poster features an exploding building, people (in this case turtles) falling out of it, and September 11 clear as day.

tmnt sept 11 posterThe image appeared on the official Twitter account of Paramount Pictures Australia. It has since been deleted. Back to the drawing board I think.

SDCC 2014: Diamond Select Toys Partners with Nickelodeon to Create New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Products

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are more popular today than ever before. The newest animated series on Nickelodeon is beloved by new and longtime fans alike, creating a diverse audience hungry for new stories, media and merchandise. With that audience in mind, Nickelodeon has partnered with Diamond Select Toys to create a similarly diverse array of toys and collectibles for fans of the hit franchise, with the first products debuting at San Diego Comic-Con.

“The depth of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise allows us to continue to create new products that will resonate with both new and loyal fans,” said Manuel Torres, Senior Vice President, Global Toys and Publishing, Nickelodeon Consumer Products.  “Partnering with Diamond Select Toys to create a variety of products is a perfect example of the momentum of the Heroes in a Half Shell.”

Comic-Con International in San Diego, which runs from July 24-28, will see the first physical Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products from Diamond Select, two translucent Minimates mini-figures of Leonardo and Michelangelo.  These products will be handed out for free (while supplies last) daily during the convention at the Diamond Select Toys booth (#2607) and Nickelodeon booth (#4113), respectively.

Products from several different categories will begin to hit stores in September, including:

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimates Series 1: The cast of the animated series has been transformed into a series of 2 -inch block figures as part of the wide-ranging Minimates brand. Each figure in the line features interchangeable parts as well as their trademark weapons. Characters include the four Turtles, April O’Neil, Shredder, Foot Soldiers, Foot-Bot, Kraang and Exo-Armor Kraang and are available in blind bags and two-packs. Sold at comic shops, specialty stores, Kmart, Sears and Toys “R” Us.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vinyl Bust Banks: The four turtles will be re-created from the waist-up as full-color vinyl money banks. Striking action poses with their trademark weapons, each 7 inch bust is based on 3D data from the animated series, and will feature collectible-quality sculpting and paint, as well as a coin slot and access door. Sold at comic shops, specialty stores and Toys “R”Us.
  • Michelangelo Metal Bottle Opener: A classic image of Michelangelo enjoying a slice of pizza, taken from promotional artwork for the 1987 cartoon series, has been turned into a 3D metal bottle opener, with magnets on the back so it can be hung on any metal surface.
