Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
After the success of the TMNT 2014 movie, the entire crew for the upcoming sequel have their hands full. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 (AKA Half Shell) has officially gone into production. Fans have a lot to be excited about: this time around will feature a new director and added characters.
The added characters will add more appeal to the successful franchise, thus for more money. Now movie goers will be entertained by new characters such as Casey Jones, along with Bebop & Rocksteady. These are only the confirmed characters for now, more is sure to come. Maybe Krang makes it to a life-action film?
The man at helm is director Dave Green (Earth to Echo) and he seems extremely ready for the gigantic project. Even Stephen Amell (Casey Jones) confirmed he was moved by director Dave Green’s passion for this film. Lots of fans complained the TMNT 2014 film lacked personal moments with the turtles. The Ninja Turtles are hilarious, so hopefully the new director can install [almost] everything the fans want.
Worldwide Total Lifetime Gross
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) – $201,965,915
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II (1991) – $120,556,813
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993) – $63,324,048

According to NATO (National Association of Theatre Owners), the price of tickets in 1990 was $4.22 and currently is 8.17. That’s about 94% (1.936) higher – therefore, the original 1990 film would have sold for 391,006,011 in today’s economy. Apparently, the new film would still have beaten its predecessor.
Hopefully the franchise continues to succeed and please fans on television and the big screen. Tell us your favorite incarnation of the Ninja Turtles.
My favorites will always be the first three films..I LOVE the Nickolodeon TMNT..its awesome.
why does this website try so hard to prop up the new stuff by crapping on the old stuff?
(like the 2012 series is the best version post)
There’s more old version than new,so it would make sense most people are coming for the old stuff,so you shouldn’t sh*t on them.
I mean,this is one of the only TMNT fan sites,you can’t just be cool with all versions?
Dude we are cool with old incarnations, but, we pay homage to the new show and films. This article did not bash the old material, it simply just highlighted the numbers.
the 400 million plus is Michael Bay spinning the information.
When you hear how much a movie makes,it’s the domestic number.
THAT’S TMNT 2014’S INTERNATIONAL NUMBER!!
What Michael Bay doesn’t want you to know is
THE NEW MOVIE MADE 191 MILLION DOMESTIC ON A 125 MILLION BUDGET!!
not even half it’s budget worth of profit in America is a modest success at best
THE FIRST ONE WAS MADE FOR 13.5 MILLION AND MADE 135 MILLION THAT’S A 1,000% PROFIT
THE NEXT ONE HAS A LOWER BUDGET THAN THE LAST,ONLY 70 MILLION
People don’t usually flock to cheaper sequels
Hard to pick a favorite but it’s certainly last years movie. That was an insult to all fans.
billy bob is mean………..
this website is awesome
the 2012 series is the best.
In my opinion
You could look at it a different way.
Many people who watched the 2014 came away bitterly disapointed. Will they be so quick to come back for a sequel?
It may go the way of another sequel starring a certain comic book wall crawler and make less. Even if Bebop & Rocksteady are enough incentive to tempt cynics back the movie will make around the same.
