TMNT Movie is #1 at the Box Office!

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
Spoiler:
(hopefully with Shredder? )

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!

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?

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.

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.

WOOHOO!
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
