After Universal and Warner Bros. took the lead in July with box office-record-breaking movies Oppenheimer and Barbie, Paramount is far and away earning the most engagement in August 2023 for its release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem. The animated feature with an all-star voice cast brings the classic turtles back to the big screen following the franchise’s live-action entries in 2014 and 2016. With TMNT, Gran Turismo, and The Meg 2 all hitting theaters in August 2023, Barbie and Oppenheimer face big competition as additional highly anticipated franchise films join the summer box office battle.
