Bay’s flick renamed to “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”


Paramount pictures revealed the official movie logo at CinemaCon and it now reads “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. The “Teenage Mutant” aspect has been added to the former title “Ninja Turtles” to finally complete the name that Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman created.

The past year has been hectic for both Michael Bay and TMNT fanatics. Many TMNT fans have bad vibes for this film but this move makes a positive statement. The leaked script has been rewritten by Evan Daugherty and it seems the “Alien” concept is no more.  So tell us what you think TMNT fans, what are your thoughts on this move?

  • I Think That Was A Big Step.

  • Daniel

    is this the first time the alien concept has been abandoned? i thought it was abandoned when the movie was put on hiatus a few months ago?

    • Dan,

      It has been abandoned a long time ago but we want to refresh TMNT fans on the news.

  • Matthew

    I’m open minded for a venues. I am just glad the turtles are back which such force and with so many story lines via comic and tv it’s never ending TMNT greatness. Good Ol’ nostalgia.

    • So happy to hear you are pleased Matthew!

  • William Schneider

    For me and my son’s sake I hope it turns out well. But the people they got to play april and splinter make me think Michael Bay done ruined this movie, like he did with all the transformers. I think he already ruined it and its going to turn out horrible.

    • We hope Michael Bay delivers a great film for the millions of fans. Bay’s approach may be assertive but its tough to tell how the movie will come out.

  • Gen. Traag

    What a relief! It’s like a load of rock soldiers were just lifted off my boulder shoulders. Dimension X is sane once again.

    • We are relieved that this news was able to alleviate pain of your rock shoulders General Traag 🙂

  • Douglas Thistle

    Going in the right direction, but Megan Fox is wrong for the role of april.

    • Many people seem to think so Doug but hopefully everyone is wrong.

    i don’t trust this movie.
