What is wrong with Paramount’s poster for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles screening in Australia?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Yes. That’s right.

The turtles are falling out of an exploding skyscraper in New York.

And the film will be in cinemas on September 11.

Cue social media backlash.

And subsequent grovelling apology.

“We are deeply sorry to have used that artwork for the marketing materials promoting the September 11 opening in Australia,” said Paramount Australia in a statement. “Combining that image and date was a mistake. We intended no offense and have taken immediate action to discontinue its use.”

Epic fail, dudes!
