Two Hi-Res Images from TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Starring Megan Fox

by     Posted 5 days ago


Two new hi-res images from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have gone online.  In the new live-action adaptation, a city is in the iron grip of Shredder (William Fichtner) and the Foot Clan, and it’s up to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, along with the help of reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), to stop Shredder and save the day.  Both of these images were in the trailer, but they provide a nice close up on Leonardo (voiced by Johnny Knoxville).

First TV Spot for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Provides a Glimpse of Splinter

by     Posted 6 days ago


In addition to releasing a new TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction, Paramount also released a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV spot during tonight’s MTV Movie Awards (MTV and Paramount are both part of the big, happy Viacom family).  This TV spot emphasizes the importance of brotherhood and “nothing is as strong as family,” especially when your family consists of giant, mutated turtles and a rat.  Speaking of which, this TV spot also provides a brief look at the turtles’ sensei, Splinter (who will be voiced by Tony Shalhoub).

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot.  The film also stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and William Fichtner with Johnny Knoxville as the voice of Leonardo.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.

Teaser Posters for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Starring Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and William Fichtner

by     Posted 11 days ago


Paramount has released the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles posters.  The look of the turtles is somewhat controversial, but fans will need no introductions when it comes to these teasers.  When it comes to the colors and weapons, Raphael will still sport red and wield sais; Michelangelo has the orange mask and uses nunchucks; Donatello wears the purple mask and has a staff; and Leonardo is in the blue mask and prefers swords.  And this, ladies and gentlemen, is how you keep the turtles separate.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser posters.  The film stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and William Fichtner with Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub voicing Leonardo and Splinter, respectively.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Casts Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub to Voice Leonardo and Splinter, Respectively

by     Posted 16 days ago


Well this news is sure to send some fans into a tizzy.  Deadline is reporting that Johnny Knoxville will voice Leonardo in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Tony Shalhoub (Monk) will voice Splinter.  These roles were motion captured on set with Pete Ploszek as Leonardo and Danny Woodburn (Seinfeld) as Splinter, but Paramount always considered using voice actors.  Whether this means the turtles Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo will also get voice actors remains to be seen, but now it’s looking pretty likely.  Michelangelo does talk in the teaser trailer, but this may not be his final voice for the movie.

Not to be a total TMNT nerd, but if you assume that Knoxville and Shalhoub will be using their familiar voices (rambunctious and nebbishy, respectively), it certainly doesn’t fit the characters as they’ve been depicted in the past.  Leonardo is the stern leader of the group while Splinter is the old sage.  Honestly, this kind of casting makes me more intrigued about what director Jonathan Liebesman is cooking up even if it flies in the face of that Ninja Turtles fans expect.  The film opens August 8th.  If you haven’t seen it yet, hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer.

I’ve decided to use this weekend’s release of Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah as an opportunity to reflect on the director’s most soul crushing work to date: his adaptation of the Hubert Selby Jr. novel of the same name, Requiem for a Dream. While I’d list Black Swan as my favorite Aronofsky film, Requiem stands alone as a devastating look at the nature of addiction that, by its end credits, will assure you that nothing decent will ever happen to you again. The film netted the great Ellen Burstyn her sixth Academy Award nod while Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly, and Marlon Wayans provided equally powerful performances as heroin addicts whose trajectories only bend downwards. While its story and characters offer little to be optimistic about, Requiem all but cemented Aronofsky’s place among the most skilled and uncompromising filmmakers of his generation. If you haven’t already, check out the film on Amazon Instant Video where it’s available to stream. Just be sure you’re not already in an emotionally fragile state or else you’re in for a long night.

Aronofsky reflections aside, this week’s Top 5 highlights the first teaser trailer for director Jonathan Liebesman‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, interviews for and Matt’s review of Noah, the new trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sabotage interviews and Matt’s review, and Steve’s coverage of CinemaCon from Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.

First Teaser Trailer for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Starring Megan Fox and Will Arnett

by     Posted 23 days ago


Paramount Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for director Jonathan Liebesman’s (Battle: LA) reboot Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  There’s not a lot of footage here, so it’s tough to make a judgment call beyond being unsure who this movie is for.  It looks like they’re trying to make it in the vein of Transformers, but robots are easy compared to something organic.  Is this meant to appeal to the nostalgia of older viewers?  Are the turtles too creepy for kids?  I don’t know what Liebesman is going for, and overall this feels like an announcement trailer.  Most people don’t know a new Ninja Turtles movie is coming.  Now it’s a matter of evaluating the response.  What’s yours?  Sound off in the comments.

Trailer Teaser for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Starring Megan Fox and Will Arnett

Paramount has released a trailer teaser for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  The first trailer will arrive online later today, but this teaser shows William Fichtner (who plays Shredder) explaining to April O’Neill (Megan Fox) that “heroes aren’t born; they’re created”, which is true.  There are no crime-fighting babies (Dear Hollywood: Make movie about crime-fighting babies), so naturally the next best things are turtles.  The teaser does provide a good close-up of Michelangelo, and it makes me have more respect for the animatronic versions from the 1990 movies.  I’m not exactly sure creating a “realistic”-looking, giant, talking turtle is the best idea.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser, click here for Steve’s reaction to the footage from CinemaCon, be sure to see what screenwriter André Nemec had to say about the film, and come back later today for the full trailer.  The film also stars Will Arnett, Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Danny Woodburn, and Noel FisherTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.

Steve is currently at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, which is basically Comic-Con for theater owners.  The convention is an opportunity for studios to preview this year’s big movie offerings for theater owners, and it also acts as a showcase for many products that will appear in theaters across the world throughout 2014 and beyond.  While attending the convention, Steve was able to grab images of some minifigure soda cup tops for Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which will presumably be available in theaters ahead of the August releases of both films.  For fans itching to see more of the characters from Guardians and TMNT, these minifigs offer a new look at the Marvel superheroes and the Turtles.

Hit the jump to take a look at the images, and click here to check out custom 3D glasses for some of this year’s big tentpole films.  Guardians of the Galaxy opens in theaters August 1st, while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens on August 8th.

While we mostly cover CinemaCon for the footage from the movie studios, there is plenty more going on at the convention than just preview footage.  Near the main theater where the studios present their upcoming movies to theater owners, tons of other industry folks are showing off their latest offerings for theater concession stands.  While walking around that area of the convention, I found what’s sure to be popular with kids in the very near future: custom 3D glasses for Transformers: Age of ExtinctionTeenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesMinions and Spongebob Squarepants 2.

As you can see in the pictures after the jump, each pair of glasses is definitely influenced by the movie and I’m sure kids are going to love them.  And maybe even a few adults, too.  Let me know what you think about the glasses in the comments and which ones you’d buy.  For more CinemaCon coverage, click here to check out minifigs for TMNT and Guardians of the Galaxy.

With CinemaCon in full swing in Las Vegas, over the past 24 hours I’ve managed to see the first footage from a lot of upcoming movies from Paramount Pictures and Universal Studios.  Yesterday, Paramount unveiled the first teaser trailers for Hercules and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and a lot of footage from Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction.  Today, Universal showed attendees footage from Luc Besson’s Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken (which looks like it’s going to be an awards contender), Fifty Shades of Grey, Fast & Furious 7, Minions, Dumb and Dumber To, a CGI-only trailer with voice over for Jurassic World, and a lot more.  Like previous years, Universal’s presentation really impressed me with the wide variety of great looking movies.  Hit the jump for more.

Shortly before introducing the world premiere of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles teaser trailer at CinemaCon yesterday in Las Vegas, I managed to speak with Will Arnett on the red carpet for a few minutes.  In the film, Arnett plays Vernon Fenwick, who works alongside Megan Fox (April O’Neil).  During the brief interview, Arnett talked about how he got involved in the film, what it was like working for director Jonathan Liebesman, the first image released from the movie, and if there is any chance Batman could be the lead in The LEGO Movie sequel (he did the voice).  Hit the jump to watch.

While Steve’s at CinemaCon in Vegas, checking out all the latest movie posters and such, he came across this first-look image from Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  It doesn’t feature any of the title characters, but we do get a close-up of Megan Fox’s reporter character, April O’Neil, and her cameraman, Vernon Fenwick (Will Arnett).  It’s likely a screengrab from the film’s first trailer, which Paramount is debuting during their presentation at the Con, and should be hitting the web anytime now.

Alan RitchsonPete PloszekJeremy Howard, and Noel Fisher are assuming the physical roles of the mo-capped heroes and the cast also includes William Fichtner as Shredder, and Danny Woodburn (Seinfeld) as Splinter.  Produced by Michael BayTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.  Hit the jump to check out the image.
