A New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game Is On The Way

1 hour ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fans of the pizza-loving heroes in a half shell can rejoice: There appears to be a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game on the way. The Australian Classification Board has listed a new game titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan on their database, which received a certificate of M yesterday. This is the second sighting of the game on such a site, with Gematsu finding a posting on a Brazilian classification site earlier in the month, listing the game as being available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.

Now, you may be thinking that this isn’t that big of a deal; there have been many Tmnt games before, with the latest being released only last year as a tie-in to the 2014 film. While some of the numerous video game outings for the sewer-dwelling crime fighters have been good, the majority of them are terrible »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 trailer attached to Star Wars: The Force Awakens

23 November 2015 11:42 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We already know there’s going to be a trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse attached to Star Wars: The Force Awakens this December, with Captain America: Civil War also likely, and it seems we’ll be getting our first look at another of 2016’s big comic book movie sequels.

Speaking at the Heroes and Villains Fan Fest, Arrow star Stephen Amell has suggested that the first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will be attached to the Disney blockbuster, stating that: “If you’re a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan, then you’re going to want to go to the theater in December before a relatively big movie that’s being released for a fantastic trailer.

On Mubi / Off #1: "Terminal Island" & "Spectre"

23 November 2015 8:15 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The parameters, mutually agreed upon by my editor Danny Kasman and myself, are these: A bi-weekly (every two weeks) column, entitled "On Mubi / Off," covering two films—one currently available on the Mubi streaming platform in the United States, the other screening offsite (in theaters, on VOD, Blu-ray/DVD, etc). The movies may share some similarities in approach, execution and theme, or they may not. Mostly, my own interests and curiosity will dictate what films are covered and in what way, and I hope you'll find the prose, the pairings, and/or the analysis compelling enough to follow along.On MUBITerminal Island (Stephanie Rothman, 1973)Sight unseen, I thought Stephanie Rothman's 1973 exploitation cheapie Terminal Island would make for a good inaugural article lead-off—something Z-grade disreputable to complement the A-level sleaze (not necessarily a criticism) of the other movie covered in this column.

10 Things We Learned From Colbert-Abrams 'Star Wars' Talk

23 November 2015 6:33 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

They came via hyperdrive and warp speed, and even by New Jersey Transit, these devotees of Stars both Trek and Wars to mix with the high-rolling, arts-underwriting swells at a benefit performance for the Montclair Film Festival. But mostly, these disciples of sci-fi's top-shelf franchises made a pilgrimage to the Garden State to watch Stephen Colbert host a two-hour "celebrity nerd-off" with director J.J. Abrams, just three-and-a-half weeks before the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you listened closely on Saturday night, you could hear a million-ish »

'G.I. Joe' and 'Micronauts' Movies Get 'Transformers' Inspired Writers Rooms

20 November 2015 5:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This summer, Paramount and Hasbro put together a team of writers to come up with new ideas for the Transformers franchise, which yielded at least three new movies that are in development. Deadline reports that the studio is continuing this writers room experiment with two more franchises, G.I. Joe and the upcoming Micronauts. Akiva Goldsman, who supervised the Transformers writers room, is now set to come up with ideas and oversee both of these new writers' rooms as well.

This new development means that Akiva Goldsman won't be available to write Transformers 5, which he had originally planned to do. Now he will be supervising the writing process, with Paramount currently in negotiations with Transformers writers room participants Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down) and the writing team of Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) to write the sequel. This change was approved by Paramount, Hasbro and producers Michael Bay, »

Why the Marvel approach doesn't make sense for Universal's classic monster reboots

18 November 2015 4:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Is Universal on its way to botching its planned series of Universal Monster reboots? Based on a piece published yesterday in Variety, it's certainly starting to sound that way. According to the article, which features interviews with Universal head Donna Langley and writers Alex Kurtzman ("Transformers") and Chris Morgan ("Furious 7"), the studio has hired a stable of storyboard artists, designers and writers to bring such characters as Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, The Mummy and the Wolfman to life for contemporary audiences. The iconic monsters, each of which has a specific writer or writers attached, will inhabit a "shared universe" in a series of interconnected films set in modern day. As Kurtzman put it: “The idea is that we have a deep bench of brains to consult with about how their monster fits into our world as we go forward." Added Morgan: ““This is not a heightened world. We’re exploring »

Why Michael Bay Walked Out Of The Friday The 13th Movie He Produced

17 November 2015 9:41 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Michael Bay is known far and wide for a couple of things. One is making movies with gigantic explosions in them. Another is co-opting 1980.s nostalgia properties...and putting giant explosions in them. There.s another thing that he.s done quite a lot of in his career that he.s probably less well known for, however. All those reboots of classic horror franchises that seen over the last 10 years? He.s produced nearly every single one. From The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to A Nightmare on Elm Street, Bay has mutilated, sorry, produced all of them. He was not, however, a fan of all of them. He reportedly walked out of the 2009 remake of Friday the 13th and, interestingly, it wasn.t because it was terrible. There are a number of reasons a producer might distance themselves from a movie. Significant changes take the film in a different »

New on Video: ‘Bad Boys’ & ‘Bad Boys II’

16 November 2015 9:35 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bad Boys/Bad Boys II

Witten by Michael Barrie, Jim Mulholland, and Doug Richardson/Ron Shelton and Jerry Stahl

Directed by Michael Bay

USA, 1995/2003

Say what you will about Michael Bay—and people have said a lot about Michael Bay—the man knows how to make an action movie. Bad Boys, from 1995, his first feature film, and its sequel, from 2003, which is making its Blu-ray debut as part of a 20th anniversary collection from Sony Pictures, are just two notable examples. These films are bursting at the seams with car chases, gunfights, explosions, and more, much more. There isn’t a whole lot beneath the surface, but there doesn’t really need to be. What these two films set out to do, they do very well, and what Bay does best, he does better than anybody. That may not always (hardly ever) be critically acceptable in terms of “quality cinema, »

Looks Like Shia Labeouf Had A Horrible Time Watching Transformers 3

13 November 2015 10:55 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Shia Labeouf won me over this week. Like most of you, I.d grown tired of the once-popular actor.s public stunts, from the paper bag on his head at a world premiere to the screaming of motivational phrases at random audience members. Enough was enough. But the #AllMyMovies project, which let us watch Shia watching all of Shia.s movies, was just interesting enough to lure me back into Labeouf.s web of crazy. especially because the experiment revealed that he hates the Transformers movies as much as we do. Part of the fun of watching Shia Labeouf watch his movies was to gauge his reaction as you played along from home. Sometimes, as when he watched The Even Stevens Movie, he appeared to be having the time of his life. However, during the screenings of Michael Bay.s Transformers trilogy . of which Shia Labeouf played an integral part »

New 13 Hours Featurette Focuses On The Heroism Behind The Action

11 November 2015 10:01 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Paramount focused on the high-octane nature of Michael Bay’s high-profile thriller 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi for last week’s explosive trailers, this time around the studio is drawing attention to the harrowing stories of the real-life American who experienced the controversial event first-hand, and how their tales of bravery will be depicted in January’s thriller.

Featuring the voices of Mark ‘Oz’ Geist, Kris ‘Tanto’ Paronto and John ‘Tig’ Tiegen, today’s featurette pairs their accounts of the events that unfolded in Libya circa 2012 with never-before-seen footage from the actioner, along with a peek behind the scenes of Michael Bay’s latest feature film. Putting the politics to one side, as one voice reveals, 13 Hours is really a story about what happened for the boots on the ground, and such an approach has garnered their backing: “We decided that the story that was being told wasn’t what happened that night. »

Master of None’s Ravi Patel on Doing the Infamous Indian Accent and the Second Coming of Aziz Ansari

11 November 2015 9:17 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Ravi Patel’s first role as a call-center operator in Michael Bay’s Transformers had him working the notorious “Apu” accent. Eight years on and the actor is in the midst of his own transformation, from token Indian to charming disruptor. Patel’s splashy 2015 documentary (and soon, feature film) Meet the Patels features his actual family weighing in as he tries to find a wife the vintage, arranged way. He parlayed that naturalism into TV ubiquity of a kind typically elusive to brown men in Hollywood: as an unaccented sous chef on the ABC comedy Grandfathered, and a struggling, lovable — and very real — Indian-American actor on Aziz Ansari’s bingeable new comedy, Master of None. Vulture recently talked to Patel about working with Ansari, marriage, and his conflicted relationship with the infamous accent.Ravi Patel: From your name, I’m guessing you’re Indian. It’s true. Meet the Patels is real for me. »

New featurette for Michael Bay’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

11 November 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new featurette has arrived online for Michael Bay’s upcoming action thriller 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, which features interviews with the real life heroes portrayed in the film, along with behind the scenes footage. You can watch it below after the official synopsis…

See Also: New poster and trailer for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

13 Hours presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the Us State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale.

This is their personal account, never before told, of what happened during the thirteen hours of that now-infamous attack. »

New 13 Hours Teaser: Watch More Explosive, Robotless Clips From Michael Bay’s Fiery Benghazi Project, As You’re Introduced to the Real-Life Soldiers

11 November 2015 1:36 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In an alternate dimension with no Pam, Jim Halpert and Roy Anderson have grown epic beards and decided that nobody should mess with them. (Actually, there are a lot of beards in here. How many can you count?) That's kind of how this trailer goes — plus some cryptic teasers ("When everything went wrong, six men had the courage to do what was right"), and the wonderfully explosive montages of Michael Bay doing his thing sans robots. The film, based on Mitchell Zuckoff's Thirteen Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi, is already generating politically charged articles, as well as comparisons to American Sniper (wow, that was fast!). Timing-wise, it makes sense: The film is slated for the same release window as Sniper, and it'll come as a Benghazi reminder right as the 2016 election kicks into gear. As with the book, Bay's 13 Hours will retell the true story »
