Future of TMNT Movie Franchise Questionable As Viacom’s Stock Drops

After the lukewarm response to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows earlier this summer, a lot of fans were wondering whether or not there would be another sequel. Although many of the actors in these movies are signed on for at least three films, we haven’t heard much of anything about plans for the third movie since the release of Out of the Shadows. The sequel ended up earning over $240 million worldwide and merchandise tied to the film is said to have sold very well, but the results were still somewhat underwhelming.

If this had been the only under-performing film to come out of Paramount Studios over the summer, there probably would not be any reason to worry. Unfortunately, the performance of Ghostbusters was also pretty weak, and the recent release of Ben-Hur represents perhaps the biggest flop of the year. Paramount is in trouble, and everyone knows it. Viacom owns Paramount Studios, and their stock is beginning to plummet as a result of poor viewership on their cable networks and in the theater.

Although they will probably find a way to salvage some of their networks, a lot of analysts are suggesting that Viacom may soon sell off Paramount Studios in order to avoid any trouble. One analyst said that Paramount “isn’t contributing very much at all, so it wouldn’t be missed much.” Viacom has not indicated any plans to give up on the studio as of yet, but it’s beginning to look like their hand may be forced at some point in the near future. One thing is for sure: until the fate of Paramount is decided, we probably won’t be hearing anything about future sequels in the TMNT movie franchise.

What does all this mean for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Well, Viacom currently owns both Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures. The film franchise has been handled by Paramount largely because the studio is owned by the same conglomerate. If Viacom decides to sell Paramount, they will no longer have a major studio to produce any TMNT movies. This doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t be able to produce a third film, but chances are that the production would not be entirely controlled by them.

Whatever does happen, it’s worth pointing out that Nickelodeon is a separate entity from Paramount; There are no indications that this network is struggling, so chances are that Viacom is going to continue working with Nickelodeon for quite some time. Unfortunately, without ties to a movie studio, chances are that a lot of the Nickelodeon film projects that have been announced over the past few years would be a lot more difficult to accomplish. That being said, it would appear that at least the 2k12 TMNT animated series is safe and secure.

It’s important to note that even if Viacom sells Paramount, they will probably still try to find a way to profit off of their multiple properties. In other words, we’re probably going to see another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie at some point, even if it’s not any time soon. Before you assume that the latest TMNT movie franchise is dead in the water, remember that this property is still very profitable in a lot of various ways. If Viacom still considers this a viable property, they will more than likely produce another Ninja Turtles movie at some point. Heck, they could announce plans for another movie next week for all we know.

Ultimately, we don’t know exactly what will happen with Viacom, Paramount or the TMNT property. The only thing that is certain is that Viacom is in trouble and Paramount Pictures is at the heart of the problem. It’s beginning to look like we could see a serious shake-up behind the scenes of the companies that own and produce Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles entertainment. This kind of event is likely to have an effect on the kind of content that we see, but there aren’t any indications that said content will be disappearing anytime soon.

What happens next is anyone’s guess. Here’s hoping the future will be totally radical for our heroes in a half shell!

Although if Viacom ditching Paramount means ditching Platinum Dunes too.... I'd be fine with that if it meant then someday partner with better film making companies who would actually do a decent job with TMNT... that would be nice. Tired as I am of total reboots though, at the moment I'd rather give this set a break for a while while those connections happen then let someone else cap this one off with a third that's actually really decent, before moving on to different films. (I mean call me crazy, though I would like seeing what good writers could do with this one.) Granted a new set of films doesn't have to start over from the beginning, but it's still 98% likely to happen and we'll never get beyond it.

Platinum Dunes doesn't always work with Paramount directly, since they had worked with other studios such as Lionsgate, MGM, New Line Cinema, Rogue Pictures, Universal Pictures, & Warner Bros.

He is right about one thing though, TMNT is still profitable in all areas except the films. Paramount and Viacom want a bankable franchise, so I'm hoping this leads to the dumping of Bay/Platinum Dunes, a re-design of the TMNT, and people whop care about the franchise and it's history as a whole (not just any one version) and can tell a good story take over.

IndigoErth
08-29-2016, 10:49 AM
Take 32 year old beloved franchise that is profitable in many formats.

Be the one company/group of companies who ruins the film profitability.

Take blinders off and feel like an ass.

Stop refusing to take the blinders off.




Makes me mad they changed the director, but not those damn writers. These may not be a lot of people's favorite Turtle designs, but it's not like there aren't other designs (in all formats) that aren't so great either, and some of that may be worse (heck, even some of the film concept art is), so that could be at least tolerated at some point if the writing hadn't failed them so hard. I give them a little credit for focusing on the brothers more and making it better among them and how they are portrayed (minus some of that cartoony junk with Raph), they did okay on that part, but they should have stuck with that part alone and someone else should have written the major storyline.

The only hope this movie has is Bluray sales and that probably won't be enough.

I may get blasted for this but after bitching about these movies they have become somewhat of a guilty pleasure and as much as I wanted this to be the end and actually got what I wanted, a part of me feels a tiny bit sad. Probably because of the possibility of never getting another TMNT movie again or at least any time soon, reboot or not. If I knew something amazing and true to the source material was just around the corner, I'd probably forget about the Bay movies pretty quick.:lol:

Saw Movie 2 costumes at Walmart yesterday. Even if plenty aren't fans of the designs, in terms of movie accuracy I was surprised to see that the costume masks are a lot better this time. I threw together a little comparison for the heck of it:

http://i.imgur.com/UHPxUjS.jpg

Look more like the characters and less like Disney movie monster (Raph), low budget kindergarten-audience tv show character (Donnie), and Backwoods Bubba and brother that want to kidnap you and leave your body in the woods (Mikey and Leo). Or at least that's how I saw the first masks. :twink:

Guess 2014's profits at least got better costumes for this one...

I decided to buy this thing on demand, it couldn't possibly be as bad the second time.

maybe i'm just too critical and modern movies really are master peices that everyone keeps on telling me they are.

nope. it's worse the second time

I lost track of the amount of product placement in the first ten minutes.
Ipads, Iphones, Crush Soda vendors, deliberate nike point out, Knicks, there where probably others.

The bad acting and akward pause shots of meghan fox are beyond laughable.

The rendering of the turtles this time around looks even worse because of all the super extra crap they have on....

Krang sounds like brad garret.

Splinter still lookshorrid and still sounds like monk.


This movie is the DEFINITION of lazy cash in cash grab and it's like it was put together by a table of executives who only knew the turtle basics. 'Poochie ok with you guys?' 'yeah, poochie is fine..'..

ugh.. I have to rewatch it in spurts because I can't stand more than 20 minutes at a time.

We won't even get into the bad line readings by the 'police cheif' and 'casey jones' who can't believe their career has led them to a bad michael bay film.

Little clips animated by hand by Little Zoo Studio for promo stuff. I only remember actually seeing the ones with all four of the Turtles used, don't think I ever saw the individual ones.

i still think they should have just made an hour and a half long feature movie from the Nick show.

sure the show is far from perfect (Apritello, Raphalisa, Casey-so-Metal, etc...) but it would have been far better than what they gave us.

Powder
10-05-2016, 05:45 PM
Yeah, I agree. I'm surprised they didn't, honestly. They do it for most of their other properties, usually successfully. Even a live-action adaption would've been great. It's a good formula, that series, they should've stuck with it.

10-05-2016, 06:18 PM

at least the Nick cartoon does the two-parter episodes which are usually pretty awesome!

Yeah, unfortunately I think the window has closed on that. Ratings aren't what they used to be, there's no word on a sixth season when we would otherwise know by now about a continuation, Playmates' output is lessening a bit, etc. I'd love to see a burst in popularity justify a big screen story, but I'm not counting on it. :(

true! they usually make the new season announcement by the time of NYCC (which is this weekend)

hopefully they wrap everything up satisfactory?

i just hope the season 5 finale ends on a nicely tied up note like season 1 did.

if season 4 ends that way i'm not as concerned about, since we have confirmation already for 5.

Stephen Amell would like to do the 3rd movie, but hasn't heard anything about it yet.

Would you return for another movie?

Happily. If we’re lucky enough to make a third one and they’re nice enough to ask me back, I will come.

No TMNT 3 according to one of the producers;

Had to laugh at his "we have no idea what went wrong" line! Really?!

I love it, I really do.

Especially the part when he says "Baxter Stockwell".

What went wrong was all the mistakes with the first one, which soured people on seeing the second. Get some talented people on the next one, who care about the series in all of it's incarnations, and make a film everyone can enjoy. No alien turtle talk, no horrible designs, no poorly constructed plot. Put some time and care into making a good film, and get Kevin Eastman and Tom waltz to do the script.

Apparently, Jones wasn't supposed to be in this film originally, bay insisted on him being there, and he kind of got shoehorned in.

Good, let's hold our thumbs for something better next time they try to make a TMNT. Hopefully, that one won't include Bebop and Rocksteady, at least not extremely annoying versions of them that take up way more screen time than they should. Or at very least, keep things simple and well paced.

It's not that hard to tell that's the case, most of his scenes are entirely pointless.

Oh well, I rather have reboot anyway. I just hope it happens before I kick the bucket.

If he wasn't in it, April and The Falcon would have beat them up, in addition to Karai.

they no longer have to care about the fans.

it's pretty obvious older franchises don't.

we no longer matter quite frankly.

Has Tom ever done screenplays before?

Well, at least they're flat-out admitting it.
Bring on the inevitable re-reboot!

I don't know, but he has to be better than bay's crew. Heck, just let waltz and Eastman write the story, and have a pro adapt it into a screenplay.

Personally, I'd to see a baxter vs rat king film with the tmnt caught in the middle, or adapt the noi-da-tar arc with chien Kahn and Ninjara from Archie.everybody has to admit those would be better than the two bay film's.

The 1987 TV series should not be blamed for the box-office performance of this film. If that does keep happening, then I hope they don't stop inviting the actors from the series to cons and expos because they love going to them. They are also some of the sweetest people imaginable. However, I doubt that will happen.

As I've stated before, people are just tired of Michael Bays films, directed or produced, in general. Transformers: Age of Extinction did not perform as well as its predecessors in North America. Not as many movie-goers are interested in seeing films that get bad reviews no matter what they are based upon. Nowadays, people want popcorn flicks to be well-written and directed. I guess the only exception this year would be Suicide Squad while Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice barely turned a profit.

it'll probably be a good long while before someone decides to invest any money into making another Ninja Turtle film.

the sad fact is they probably won't even learn from their mistakes?

maybe instead of Casey being a cop next time they'll make him into an astronaut or a cowboy?

This I agree on, the 1987 characters were not this movies problem. Those characters can be used seriously, the IDW versions proved that.

I highly doubt that since FW is still a big part of the general audience's knowledge about TMNT.

Plus PD:OotS is a terrible, disgraceful and pathetic attempt to do a FW movie. FWs worst episodes are masterpieces compared to that cinematic turd.
