Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shreds the Box Office

…because of Shredder (get it?).  lame pun, thanks.

In what seems like an impressive August, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opened to a much better than expected $65 million despite it's critically panned reviews (19% Tomatometer).  Michael Bay has become the master of making terribly panned movies that do very well.  We can all expect a sequel, since it's just been green lit, thanks to this ridiculous opening.

The good news is that August is off to very big start and may make up some of Summer's box office lulls.
