‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Reboot Gets a New Release Date

New Line

There’s an art to choosing a film’s release date, particularly when you’re dealing with big summer tentpoles that could spawn a franchise and need the perfect placement. What date would be perfect for the upcoming remake/reboot of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘? We’re not sure, but it looks like Paramount decided to make a change and have pushed the film back a few months.

Originally set to open on June 6, 2014, Jonathan Liebesman’s take on the popular crimefighting reptiles has been moved back to August 8, 2014. The news comes via Deadline, who suggest that the studio wants to put some distance between it and ‘Transformers 4,’ which is set to arrive on June 27. After all, both films share an audience (and Michael Bay) and why risk letting one even remotely get in the way of the other? Not to mention the fact that ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ may play better in the final weeks of the summer movie season, after all of the massively anticipated sequels and superhero movies have already opened.

That means we’re now a little less than a year away from the film, which stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Whoopi Goldberg (?!), William Fichtner and a bunch of CGI anthropomorphized turtles armed with ninja weaponry.
