Paramount Pictures has delayed the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie to August 8th 2014, reports Deadline.
The Nickelodeon/Platinum Dunes film, directed by Michael Bay, was originally due for release in Christmas this year, but was pushed back once to May 2014, and then again to June 6th 2014. Now the movie is penned in to land on August 8th 2014.
The reason for this latest delay is to put further space between TMNT and Bay’s other movie Transformers 4.
Both films have expansive advertising and mechandising drives planned and the studio believe the space would benefit both campaigns.
