View Full Version : TMNT Movie is #1 at the Box Office!

03-25-2007, 10:27 PM
As you probably already heard, the new TMNT film topped the box office in its opening weekend! The movie drew in an estimated $25.45 million in ticket sales, thanks to fans like us who saw it this weekend! Here's hoping that it continues to do well in theaters and pave the way for a possible sequel (hopefully with Shredder?;) )

Was there ever any doubt? ^^

03-25-2007, 11:25 PM
OH YEAH! I knew it was going to happen anyway, but I can't help but feel so happy! *dances wildly* It's great to know that the turtles are still loved by many today! :D

I'm sure many of the people who went were OT fans. If they were disappointed with the new tone, what does that mean for this week's sales?

03-26-2007, 12:01 AM
Eh... most old toon fans have NO IDEA the new toon exists, so I wouldn't worry about that!

I do wonder how many people were surprised to see "Ninja Turtles" on the marquee and decided to see it out of sheer curiosity.

there are probably still fans here who hasn't seen it like me. I will be seeing it tomorrow night! Can't wait.

Congratulations, Kevin and crew! We love ya!

its amazing how many tv and radio stations are like " an amazing turn of events at the box office" or "out of nowhere". Come on people. Turtles are the movie standards by which all other movies should be measured.
Ok that's a bit much but the shell with it

As an old-school fan, I wasn't expecting to like it. I was actually expecting to be sincerely disappointed! But wow, it blew my mind. :) It had everything that I loved about the old comic & TV show.

So from an old schooler's perspective it seriously rocked, even with the changes. (thank you god for not making April a reporter, she was SO obnoxious as a reporter. :( )

I'm excited it's doing so well in the theaters! I hope that means the sequel is in order...

I was very impressed with the movie.. it made me forget there was a 3rd. this should have been the 3rd one. despite the shortness of the movie which should have kept all footage in and changes here and there, the movie was fantastic. the cgi made the turtles look so good.

As a texan i can honestly say.....YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!! !!!!!!! we might just get a sequeal guys and ghouls! yesyesyesyesyes!!! this is awsome!

03-27-2007, 11:22 PM
I must be one of the people who made this possible, because I saw it on Friday, March 23rd, when it opened! :D

03-28-2007, 08:37 AM
I saw it opening day too :).
It's AMAZING how much money it's pulling in in the box office!! I'm so pround of TMNT *wipes tear*.
I felt that the movie was building up for a major sequel though, did anyone get that? Like, the next one is gonna have Shredder or something (yay Shredder!). Anywho, I'm pretty sure we should keep our eyes open for TMNT2 or something :D!

A friend and I also made costumes... they're nowhere NEAR that one guys thread where he spend like thousands of dollars to make a mold. We're talking green spandex here... broke fans REPRESENT!

03-29-2007, 12:41 PM
I totally got the whole sequel vibe and my gal pal and I are agreed that it should so have Shredder in it!! (yay Shredder!!!!). I am so excited at the idea of my fav baddie returning to the story!!!

I just want to see the film.

03-29-2007, 04:06 PM
Are ya crazy! Go see it! Now!

And even though TMNT came out less than a week ago, I'm already craving a sequel XD!

i think it's great also. the best stuff stands the test of time, which is why you see stuff like the turtles and transformers still making noise two decades later.

Aw shell. It went down this last weekend to only 9mil grossed. Bringing it to a total of $38mil. Hopefully easter weekend will bring it back up. But I really, really doubt it will make a 100mil at this point however. So I guess chances of a sequel are slim. But DVD sales/rental may bring it back up. Everyone I've talked to said they are waiting for it to go to DVD ... so ... ya never know.

04-02-2007, 07:03 PM
I think it was quite obvious the movie hinted to a part 2, w/ shredder! I love stories that involves karai/shredder the best :)

I'm gonna see it at least a couple more times to make sure the Box Office has support 8)

I've always had a strange facination with bad guys ever since I was little. I think it started with Scar in The Lion King... I was also a huge fan of the old 80's Shredder and Krang too just because they rocked and made me laugh.

I had not noticed this till just now!


TMNT deserves it for sure!

I have not gone to the movie theatres since TMNT, curiously.

Obviously it's been a while since anyone touched this thread, but it's also been a while since I've been logged on. I thought the movie was really good! It had certain areas for improvement, but ultimately it was a good showing for the green guys return to screen, I think!
