Paramount Apologizes For ‘TMNT’ 9/11 Poster
The new ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ film will be released in Australia on September 11th. Many around the world will always remember that day for the terrorist attacks on the United States.
Unfortunately some at Paramount Pictures forgot when they released a poster of the foursome falling from an exploding New York skyscraper above the September 11th release date.
The poster sparked fan backlash on twitter:

Paramount has now released a statement to apologize. “We are deeply sorry to have used that artwork for the marketing materials promoting the September 11 opening in Australia. Combining that image and date was a mistake. We intended no offence and have taken immediate action to discontinue its use,” The statement read.
The film is set to be released in the US on August 8th.
