Cinema Blend has reported on a story that is sure to warm every TMNT fan's heart. Paramount helped out a sick TMNT fan who couldn't see the new movie in theaters by bringing the film to him, similar to the creator of Rocket Raccoon with Guardians of The Galaxy.

Whether you like the movie or not, this is really nice of Paramount.

This is nice, I am expecting someone to come in here and applaud what they did but complain about how it's bad cause he saw a tmnt movie that they thought was bad.

...And comments like that are in no way baiting them. Nope. Not at all. :roll:

Yeah, that is nice of them to do. I hate to wear my cynical hat though, but sometimes companies and famous individuals do these things for the publicity I feel. I'm not saying that is the case here but just generally speaking.

I hope the sick fan enjoyed the film regardless. Even if these things are sometimes done in a cynical fashion, the end result is an ill person benefiting, and that is ultimately what counts.

Total publicity stunt, but still a nice thing to do for the fan. I hope he enjoyed it.

Agreed - I question Paramount's altruism, but it meant a lot to the sick fan and I'm glad that a giant corporation did something nice for the little guy (regardless of how self-serving it may seem).

Yeha, ultimately the end result is what matters, regardless of the motive.

It's nice that they did that, even thought it was just for publicity. I find it weird how they gave it to him on an i Pad. Was a DVD beyond Shenron's power?

Way easier to protect a movie from being leaked if it's on a private device that they own.

Also probably easier since the movie is most likely a digital file. Just pop it over onto the iPad. Easy.

Even if this is just a publicity stunt, as some seem to suggest, the end result is the same: this guy got to see a movie he otherwise wouldn't have been able to see so soon, and I'm sure he's elated to have had the opportunity.

I wasn't thinking about that until you just mentioned it. You need to lighten up around here. :roll:

I agree with all y'all, whether or not it was a publicity stunt or not it was still nice of 'em to do that for that kid.
