Well in a pretty interesting move, Paramount has pushed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles release date back two months. After already being pushed back from a Christmas 2013 release, it was moved to June 6, 2014. But now Paramount has pushed it back to August 8, 2014. Why you ask? Apparently this change had to do with Transformers 4 opening three weeks after it. But now this has it opening one week after Guardians of the Galaxy.
If Guardians looks half as good as the teaser clip that was shown at Comic-Con then leaked online this week, then the Turtles are going to have their fair share of competition. They could potentially get buried by it.
If I was Paramount, I would have left it where it was, or pushed it up a week, giving it a month before Transformers 4. Then again, that would put it closer to X-Men: Days Of Future Past which opens on May 23, 2014. This is going to be interesting for sure. What do you think? Which film do you think will be the winner? (Source: Deadline)
