Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows – $75 million
If there’s one movie that proves why reboots aren’t a good thing, it’s TMNT: Out of the Shadows. We understand why Paramount would want to reboot this classic series. Everything about TMNT sells, from its toys to games to merchandise. However, they probably forgot to focus on the main thing, the movie, which didn’t sell.
The first TMNT reboot in 2014 did okay, and they had pretty high expectations for the sequel. However, it didn’t exactly live up to the hype that the original generated, and Paramount ended up incurring a $75 million loss. There was going to be a sequel to Out of the Shadows, but like what happens with every other failed original, the studio slammed on the brakes.
