Well, I suppose if they wanted to do more of the same they would just do PD3 so there's that.... but strange to announce a full reboot and keep the same people.....(who aren't popular with the franchise)

I wonder how many pages this thread will have when I get up tomorrow

Probably about 50 pages, most of them will be pictures of Andrews plants

I'm just thinking how long it will take for TrickOrTreater to return , he hasn't been here since 2016 and all he did was bash the 2 movies and Michael Bay.

Andrew Form, one of the producers, gave an interview post-OOTS. Here's one frightening quote and one promising quote -

ANDREW FORM: "We were obviously surprised at the box office results. We loved the movie. We loved making the movie. From our first Super Bowl teaser to everything we launched, we felt so good about our material, and for some reason it did not find the audience that the first movie found. And we talk about it all the time, and we tried to figure it out, but we cannot put our finger on what happened. We really canít. Itís just one of those things where we feel like we made a really great movie; we thought at the time that our release date was great, and we added all these new characters with Bebop and Rocksteady and Baxter Stockwell had a big role in the movie and Casey Jones and for some reason when it came to opening weekendÖEven before the movie came out, we were feeling great. And you wake up two days before the movie opens and you go, ďWow, I donít know if this movie is tracking as well as it should.Ē Then you hope, and then Thursday night happens and your midnights come in and youíre like, ďThatís not what Movie 1 did,Ē and then sure enough your weekend comes and itís nowhere near what anyone thought, and itís nowhere near Movie 1, and, before you know it, itís over. Weíre still so proud of the movie; it just didnít find an audience. We really donít know why."

Yikes....but, this made me feel ...a tad better:

FORM: "I think one thing we did learn is you really need to giveóyou canít just add characters to a movie and expect that to be whatís fresh. Itís a sequel. You have to give the audience something thatís really new and fresh. Maybe just adding characters from the canon, that wasnít enough"


Overall, they really don't seem to get the franchise, or what makes it special, whatsoever. Yet, as we all know, money talks. The sequel underperformed. They can't repeat the same mistakes they made last time. Whatever we get, it should be quite different.

There is someone new running Platinum Dunes that's now in charge. This is from that Hollywood Reporter article.

However, both were made before the arrival of chairman Jim Gianopulos, who has made it a priority to clean up the studio’s slate and refocus its franchises. Insiders are hoping to bring a patina of quality as they relaunch the franchise.

Possibly who knows. What I don't want is them redoing the origin again. Just do a soft reboot.

You do realize the chances of that happening are very, very, very, very, very, very, VERY low, yes?

a Soft Reboot. which they tell the origin during the opening credits.

I want something like how they did the origin of the Hulk in the opening credits of Marvel's Incredible Hulk movie.

That anyone can be so blind and confused sounds absurd.

Let me make it simple: You guys disappointed with the the first. Enough that people expected more of the same and didn't bother with the second.

You know, the "once bitten" principal. It's like expecting a second date if the first one didn't really go all that well.

You'd have to pay absolutely ZERO attention to what people were saying about the first to be that confused after the second. Making money doesn't mean people thought it was fantastic... It just means people put their hope in it. By the second, the hope was gone. (Which is a shame as it did at least improve in certain aspects, if not enough of them.) The failure of the sequel says more about the first than about itself.



P.S. Feel free however to bring Steve Jablonsky back.

Platinum Dunes is a cinematic travesty on par with Justice League and Fant4stic.

They didn't just fail; they didn't just make bad CBMs... they went beyond failing and TRIUMPHED at making the most epic shitastic fvckfest that ever assaulted a disappointed fan's eyes.

They deserve to be crucified* in the media and hung out to dry, for all to scorn and mock. They deserve to have their names memorialized, along with Zach Snyder, Joss Whedon, Avi Arad, Marc Webb, and Josh Trank, and used as classic epitomes of bad examples in comic book movie adaptations and cinema.

They turned failure into an art form; a gross, disgusting art form, and completely shot their own d!cks off when they could have instead succeeded and launched successful cinematic universes to rival (but not surpass) the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The only worse adaptations I can think of are made by Uwe Boll, and THAT guy's been running a cinematic tax scam for a couple of decades now.

I could go on, but I'll let Andrew take it from here.

* IE, metaphorically, not literally

Does Viacom have no other film company they can hand it to?

Well as with everything I'll just wait and see, I mean, it can't be worst then Rise of the TMNT now can it? Right?

Would love to have the same guys from the previous 2 playing the Turtles though, they're where really good.

As to what they can do for a 3rd movie. I think they should do the Purple Dragons as the bad guys. and have Hun being involved?

And have Bebop and Rocksteady show up.

As much as I love Mirage, I think the obvious thing to do is adapt the first year or two of the IDW book. There's a great foundation there. It's a fresh take, but true to the characters and the time hopping is a great cinematic hook.
