Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Linked To Rise In Pet Turtle Sales & Smuggling

3 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie grossed $187M at the domestic box office and an additional $154M at the foreign box office. The film's success has feuled an explosion in sales of pet turtles. The CBC is reporting, sales of pet turtles has risen 20% sinceTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released in theaters this past August. Steve Mark, who worked with the province's parks department told CBC, "Kids, with their imagination, are thinking if they got four of them maybe they'll turn into the ninja turtles." Mark saw the same boost in demand during the 1990's when the first the first film adaptation was released. On the downside, this rise in demand has led to a spike in illegal smuggling of the creatures. Mark believe 9 out of 10 turtles found in pet stores were acquired illegally. How lucrative can it be for smugglers? Mark said, "One example of a »

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Concept Art Shows Dinobot Battles, New Look At Galvatron

4 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As Transformers: Age Of Extinction brings its huge 2014 run to a close with its Home Video release, it's time to start looking a little closer at what went into the film's production. It's this sort of thirst for behind the scenes content that fuels studios in their selection of what materials to include on the physical release of a blockbuster film such as this, and from what we've heard about Transformers: Age Of Extinction, the latest in Michael Bay's Transformers series is no slouch. Collider has gotten a look at some exclusive concept art that is part of the Transformers: Age Of Extinction special features, showcasing everything from the film's climatic Dinobot battle to Galvatron himself! What's most interesting about these concepts is how different some of them are from what was actually in the film itself. For instance, take a look at the design of the Knight Ship »

Early Plot Details Surface For Legendary’s Dead Rising Movie

8 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Like it or not, video game adaptations are seemingly back in vogue for Hollywood. Over the next few years, we can expect filmic translations of major pixelated properties such as Splinter Cell, Assassin’s Creed and, in all likelihood, about five more Resident Evil films. But one of the new kids on the block so to speak is Legendary’s Dead Rising movie, which just yesterday unveiled its full cast.

Including the likes of Meghan Ory, Dennis Haybert and Dallas star Jesse Metcalfe, the feature-length film is set to shuffle its reanimated corpse in front of the cameras today, with filming set to begin in Vancouver. Dead Rising is also the first Legendary project to be produced exclusively for a digital platform. And Zack Lipovsky, the director behind the lens, recently sat down with /Film to discuss the early ideas that are currently being sketched up on the proverbial drawing board. »

'Transformers: Age of Extinction', 'Chef' & '24: Live Another Day' on DVD & Blu-ray Today

9 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Chef One of the best films of 2014 so far and a movie that, while I wish you had seen it in theaters (that is if you didn't), will play perfectly at home. I really hope all of you get a chance to check out Jon Favreau's Chef, not because it's Amazing, but because it's just a good, sweet, funny film. Here's my review if you're interested.

Transformers: Age of Extinction Now if you haven't seen Transformers: Age of Extinction, woe be to those of you that watch it for the first time at home. This is a film meant to be seen on a giant screen as it pummels you into submission. At home I just don't see the point. Here's my theatrical review and then an article I wrote examining Michael Bay and the movie if you're interested.

10 Films That Should Have Ended Ten Minutes Earlier

10 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Pixar

We’re all used to movies that feel too long. The summer blockbuster season is dominated by them; ninety minute B-Movies inflated to extents that would make Gone With The Wind look snappy.

Knowing when to end is very important for a film. The final moments will shape how people regard a movie – a cracking last couple of minutes can make up for no small number of earlier faults – yet so many movies appear to put their ending below catering on their list of priorities.

It can go both ways. Some films you kinda wish had a bit more explanation. They may be utterly abysmal experiences that drag out to obscene lengths, but every one of Michael Bay’s Transformers movies ends so abruptly it comes as a genuine shock. It’s not a case of being left wanting, but a general lack of narrative cohesion.

11 Movies Which Got Geography Completely Wrong

14 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public. – H.L. Mencken

Every film has mistakes in it. There’s a section for each film called “Goofs” on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb.com) web site, which lists the flaws for all to see. Sometimes the mistakes are technical, sometimes they involve continuity, and sometimes they involve dialogue. But there’s one set of mistakes that in retrospect, seem totally baffling: geographical.

American script writers, directors and producers are banking on the fact that most Americans are illiterate when it comes to geography. They aren’t likely to know or even care that a car can’t be driven over a thousand miles in a scene change. They’re at the theater for entertainment, not a geography lesson. Besides, if they need to go somewhere, their Gps will tell them how to do it.

But when that film goes overseas, »

Robots and Bay-hem loom large in 'Transformers: Age Of Extinction' concept art

29 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of my favorite parts of any filmmaking process, especially on big giant science-fiction or fantasy films, is the design process when illustrators work to figure out the visual signature of a film. As Paramount gears up to release "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow, they sent over a fistful of the artwork that was created to help pin down the look of the movie. Sure, it's a sequel, but there were so many things that had to be redesigned and so many new characters that had to be introduced that they had as much work to do here as they would have on any original film. You'll see a lot of environmental stuff in these images as they worked to find the look of the Knight Ship and some of the inhabitants of that ship, and you'll see studies on several of the new Transformers.

Box Office Weekend: The Equalizer Is Top Draw

29 September 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Critical reaction may be mixed, but The Equalizer won over audiences handily as box office revenues continue to improve (even over the similar weekend from last year), the Denzel Washington-led thriller bringing in an estimated $35 million. With a budget of $55 million, the film is off to a good start; The Maze Runner, on the other hand, cleared a few hurdles to garner itself a mostly successful second weekend with an estimated $17.5 million, just enough to edge out close contender The Boxtrolls, which brought in an estimated $17.3 million. The Boxtrolls may be in for a rough haul despite getting positive reviews, as its budget remains unreported.

From fourth place down, no film broke $10 million in weekend revenue. Of them, the closest was This Is Where I Leave You, the dramatic comedy taking an estimated $7 million and walking into a profit, while Dolphin Tale 2 came close to breaking even with »

Optimus Prime Wants Bay For "Transformers 5"

24 September 2014 5:21 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The legendary Peter Cullen recently spoke with Cinema Blend about his time on the "Transformers" film franchise and was asked about comments from director Michael Bay in recent months about the filmmaker's intention to leave the franchise.

Cullen, who voices Optimus Prime in the four films, says he would certainly miss Bay should the helmer decide to leave:

"I have a great deal of respect for him. He generates a great deal of excitement and energy. He's really a hands-on director.

My son is a stunt man and worked in Chicago doing a lot of the driving sequences...he said he's a very, very diligent, hands-on guy. He creates a great deal of energy and puts everybody on their toes. I would certainly miss him. I think he's brilliant, his mind is unbelievable.

Michael if you're [reading] this, I certainly hope you are coming back."

Optimus Prime Actor Wants Michael Bay to Direct 'Transformers 5'

24 September 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, Paramount Pictures revealed that Transformers 5 is currently set for a 2016 release, even though no screenwriter or director have been confirmed yet. Transformers filmmaker Michael Bay, whose last offering Transformers: Age of Extinction is the only 2014 movie to crack $1 billion worldwide so far, revealed in August that he doesn't want to direct the next sequel, even though producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is still trying to keep him at the helm.

While we wait for Paramount to release any more concrete information about Transformers 5, Peter Cullen, who voices Optimus Prime, revealed that he wants Michael Bay to come back for the sequel.

"Michael if you're [reading] this, I certainly hope you are coming back."

Of course, this scenario isn't new to fans who have been following the franchise since its inception. Michael Bay stated several times that Transformers: Dark of the Moon would be his last Transformers movie, »

Optimus Prime Wants Michael Bay to Direct ‘Transformers 5′

24 September 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Easily one of the most contentious movie franchises currently in Hollywood, despite successful runs as the box office, the Transformers films have divided moviegoers in an on-going, and especially contentious, debate. Many dismiss the mega-blockbuster series as hollow action with little substance (and an affront to childhood memories) while others view the movies as the epitome of popcorn entertainment – excitedly waiting for each new installment (to see how director Michael Bay intends to go bigger and louder).

Nevertheless, many viewers, even those who have enjoyed Bay’s four Tf movies, have begun to question if a director change-up in Transformers 5 might ultimately provide slight improvements to the series going forward. Bay himself had previously stated that ...
