Ahead of its September 11 theatrical release date, Paramount Pictures has promoted the Michael Bay-directed version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by releasing this poster. It shows the turtles jumping out of a building, the upper floors of which are exploding.
Unfortunately, the posters shared by the studio on Twitter look an awful lot like they’re using the Twin Towers terrorist attack on… 9/11… as inspiration (whether it was deliberate or not).
Incidentally, the Paramount Australia Twitter shared the photo promoting its September 11, 2014 release date (13 years since the terrorist attacks in New York). The American release is August 8 and it’s released in Europe in October. The message was shared Thursday morning, and quickly deleted. Here’s a closer look.
Previously, Megan Fox used the press junket to complain that scenes depicting her character as physically strong were left on the cutting room floor.
Megan spoke to HitFix.com at ComicCon. “I was here for ‘Jennifer’s Body’ where I was a man-eating zombie, and I was here for ‘Jonah Hex’ where I was a prostitute with a heart of a gold,” she said. “And [April O’Neil] is neither of those things.”
Instead, her depiction of April is less sexualized and more “modern… a little angsty, not darker, but a little less happy-go-lucky super-sweet damsel-in-distress. Slightly grittier.”
“[April] is an ambitious journalist that’s not making it the way that she wants to be because people underestimate her,” Megan added. “I couldn’t possibly relate to that,” she joked.
“A lot of girl power ended up on the cutting room floor, unfortunately. I had a really awesome scene where I was fighting The Foot Clan, but I think they were like, ‘Why would a tiny journalist be able to kick so much ass?'” she revealed. “So that got cut. But I have a moment, Shredder and I have a moment. Maybe it’s badass, you tell me when you see it.”
