TMNT: Mutant Mayhem goes digital after only a month in theaters

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is available to rent and buy digitally after a short — yet successful — theatrical-only run. The Nickelodeon feature debuted in theaters and, after only a month, finds itself available online.

As reported by Collider, the film is saw very little downtime. In fact, it’s actually available right now on platforms like Amazon Prime, YouTube, Google Play, and more for $24.99 or $19.99 to buy or rent, respectively. Considering the flick is hot out of theaters with glowing reviews, we’d say that isn’t a bad price.

The Jeff Rowe film saw great success with a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. Meanwhile, we praised the film’s “wealth of energy” and nods to old references, awarding it an A, in our own review.

With its modest $70 million budget and star-studded cast, Mutant Mayhem was poised for success, not to be offset by the ongoing Barbie and Oppenheimer craze going on at the time. However, not to rain on the Turtles’ pizza party, but it does have bad insinuations that the film is already heading digital so soon after its theatrical release. It’s possible that the film didn’t stack up to the expected profit when taking advertising costs into account.

It still seems that Paramount is all-in on this new Mutant Mayhem craze, though, considering before the film’s debut, a sequel was already announced alongside a two-season tie-in series on Paramount+.
