It was a stellar opening weekend for “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” as the film’s big opening brought in a promising $65 million so far.

As such, Paramount Pictures is planning a sequel to hit theaters on June 3rd, 2016 with Michael Bay returning as producer along with Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.

Paramount honcho Adam Goodman explained, “Launching a new take on the Turtles into the feature film world was a daunting task because as fans of them ourselves, we felt a great responsibility to ensure audiences were going to experience everything they loved about the Turtles, while also getting to see them brought to life in a way they had never been seen before.”

In addition to the $65 million in domestic sales, “Turtles” also brought in $28.7M internationally for a total take of $97.3 million!
