Are We Seeing The End of Summer Movie-Going? TheStreet - 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows,'
Published on 6 Jun 2016
The summer box office season is just about to heat up, or maybe not. Over the weekend, 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows,' which cost Viacom's Paramount Pictures $135 million to produce had a disappointing opening weekend. The film brought in just a little more than $35 million dollars, that's roughly half of what the previous Ninja Turtles film in the franchise brought in on its opening weekend in 2014. Now, while the summer movie season normally picks up around the Fourth of July weekend, early disappointing sales could be a sign that movie-goers are tiring of sequels and remakes.
