The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turyles made a CGI-powered comeback, rising to the top of the weekend boxoffice with $25.45 million. 300 was second, continuing its fantastic pace with $20.5 million.
By the way, did you know that TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES started off as a parody of Frank Miller’s RONIN? It’s TRUE! He’s everywhere!
TMNT’s success prompted studio head Harvey Weinstein to wax philosophical.
“It’s sequel time, dudes,” said Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of the Weinstein Co., which is distributing “TMNT” overseas. “We knew from the inception of this project that that the `TMNT’ characters would continue to resonate with audiences across the world.”
Meanwhile, The New Yorker proclaims that 300 “is perhaps the nuttiest film ever to become an enormous box-office hit.”
Further meanwhile, AlJazeera, the pan-Arabic news service, proclaims 300 is part of a Jewish conspiracy:
The West claims that the Muslim world continuously fails to show tolerance for different cultures and different religions. Who needs to show tolerance? The Muslim world, which has so far showed nothing but true respect to the Western culture, or the West who persistently attempts to distort the image of the Islamic and the Arabic culture through various means?
Jewish media control determines the foreign policy of the United States, and the U.S. govt on the other hand controls what the media presents to Americans and the entire world.
Wait until AlJazeera gets wind of TMNT’s reptilian conspiracy.
