I’ll admit it, I’ve done my fair share of bitching about the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles flick coming out this weekend. Maybe as much as I end up enjoying his crap, I still know it’s crap. But I still eat it up so I’m a bit of a hypocrite, shoot me okay? Anyways during a panel held in Los Angeles, the group was asked how they felt about the fans’ reaction. Megan Fox was reported to jump in quick as lightning with this response:
“Let me tell you something about those people. How much money did Transformers 4 make? Exactly. Those people can complain — they all go to the theater. They’re gonna love it — and if they don’t love it, they can fuck off, and that’s the end of that.”
Harsh words indeed but she does have a point. I mean we do go in droves to anything Bay does and Transformers 4 made more money than the more critically received X-Men: Days of Future Past. The question is should she call out a large group of fans and in doing so, will that affect the box office take this coming weekend for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Personally I think people are going to go watch it out of sheer curiosity. I know I’m going to. I think TMNT will do well money wise and will get greenlit for a sequel, I’m that confident. Even with people bitching that April O’Neil is being played by Megan Fox.
