Both critics and movie goers have mixed feelings for the TMNT reboot, but financially it’s a hit. Proof of this is its earnings of $65 million at the weekend box-office.
The Paramount film group president, Adam Goodman, admitted that “launching a new take on the ‘Turtles‘ into the feature film world was a daunting task.” Because of the overwhelming financial result and some fans actually liking the film, everyone behind the movie feel very positive for a sequel.
“The result exceeded our high expectations and the response to the film is beyond great, making it all the more fun to get started on the continuation of their story,” Goodman added through Deadline Hollywood.
Producer Michael Bay and the writers will return for the sequel. It is however unclear for director, Jonathan Liebesman , if he is as well.
