UPDATED: Further UK delay for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
It looks like the UK release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been put back even further...
UPDATE: Whilst the US release has been put back to August 15th, we're now hearing that the UK release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been put back even further. Whilst the US release remains in August, we're now hearing that UK release will be Friday October 17th 2014 - two months after America gets the film.
Here's the original story we ran...
Production has wrapped on the much talked about new take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, with Michael Bay producing and Jonathan Liebesman directing. The film was originally going to be released in December 2013, but some time ago the decision had been made to shift it back to June 2014.
However, Paramount has now jiggled its schedule again, and it's moved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back a couple more months. The US release date has now shunted from June 6th 2014 to August 8th 2014.
That actually brings it more in line with the UK release. The film has long since been on the UK schedules for August 15th.
The reason for the change? It's apparently to move it away from Michael Bay's other big 2014 release, Transformers 4. The new release date is a less competitive, although it'll leave Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opening a week after Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy.
We'll have more on the film as we hear it.
