Big TMNT Controversy!
One of the biggest summer movie releases has already made a big ol’ blunder. Can you spot the problem?
If you can’t, take a closer look at this poster–which is for the Australian release of the film–and look at the release date.
Perhaps having anyone–mutated turtles included–flying out of an exploding skyscraper with “September 11″ beneath it isn’t the best PR move.
Paramount has since apologized:
We are deeply sorry to have used that artwork for the marketing materials promoting the September 11 opening in Australia,” Paramount Australia said in a statement. “Combining that image and date was a mistake. We intended no offense and have taken immediate action to discontinue its use.
So, what do you think? Insanely stupid by Paramount or no big deal?
