No, but really--who ordered this? Did I miss the overwhelming love for the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES movie, which just came out last month? Last I heard critics were trying to set fire to it, yes? But I guess the people have spoken (and when I say the "people," I mean those who actually spent their hard earned money to give the film its $270 million worldwide gross), and Paramount Pictures are rewarding them with an IMAX 3D one-week release beginning Friday, September 12th. Um, yay?
Well, despite all the vitriol constantly hurled at Michael Bay, who produced the film, his films rarely disappoint at the box office. And I have to admit, I am a huge Bad Boys fan and I admire the fact that Bay knows his lane and sticks in it. But yeah, I'm still not checking for a re-release of TMNT (I do still plan to check out the film on DVD along with the other low-priority films on my must-watch list). However, if you were a fan of this recent iteration of TMNT, you may be interested to hear that the limited theatrical engagement will kick off with advance screenings on Thursday, September 11th at 7:00 p.m. local times nationwide. The first 300 ticketholders at each of these advance screenings will receive one of three special Legends of the Yokai Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Collector’s Artist Posters, while supplies last.
