Awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Vehicle Images; Is This 'Casey Jones'' New Ride?

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

Critics didn't love it and the response from longtime fans was more than a little mixed, but Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a box office hit last year. It didn't take long for a sequel to be officially announced, and that's set to be released on June 3rd, 2016, with the original cast returning alongside new additions Stephen Amell (as Casey Jones) and Tyler Perry (as Baxter Stockman).  Franchise producer Michael Bay as today revealed the first official images from the sequel, and along with a new look at the "Tartaruga Brothers" truck we first saw at the end of the last movie, a new vehicle - the Polaris Slingshot - has been unveiled. I'm far from a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles expert, but is this the kind of car that the new Casey Jones could get behind the wheel of? It's not exactly hard to imagine Arrow star Stephen Amell in it anyway, »

Second Opinion – Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2015.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Thomas Kretschmann, Cobie Smulders, Claudia Kim, Andy Serkis, Don Cheadle, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell and Linda Cardellini.

Synopsis:

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.

I looked back at my review of The Avengers from 2012 and the opening paragraph struck me as one which I’d never consider writing now;

“Firstly, I love films based on comic book characters and I enjoy many summer blockbusters, so I cannot complain that I wasn’t part of The Avengers’ target audience. Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Batman, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, X-2, X-Men: First Class, »

And the chaos ensues. #JustCause3pic.twitter.com/YGiAnPNTVw

Just Cause (@justcause) April 24, 2015

As a franchise renown for erring on the side of ridiculous, everything we’ve seen from Just Cause 3 thus far indicates that the threequel is very much going to toe a familiar line – kicking physics and common sense to the kerb in the process. Following the adventures of series stalwart Rico Rodriguez, this latest installment will jettison the action to the Mediterranean, »

Rainbow Six: Siege – 10 Things It’ll Do Better Than Call Of Duty

23 April 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ubisoft

Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy titles have always prided themselves on realism and authenticity – two elements distinctly lacking from the majority of first and third-person shooter titles today.

At the franchise’s peak, Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six and Splinter Cell dominated gaming’s tactical military market, catering to the more hardcore of players in the process. Gameplay was never a simple paint the numbers experience, with caution and tactical thinking being rewarded far over anything resembling a simple run n’ gun approach.

The last generation saw two Rainbow Six releases, namely Vegas 1 and 2, and they nailed the feeling of being part of the world’s most elite forces perfectly – forcing gamers to utilise tried and tested Cqc and hostage rescue skills in an area once more frequently Michael Bay than Kathryn Bigelow in nature.

Not only that, but Rainbow’s much renowned ‘Terrorist Hunt’ mode provided one of the finest co-op experiences to date, »

22 April 2015 4:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the last two movies both breaking a billion at the box office, it came as no surprise last month when it was reported that Paramount Pictures and Hasbro are looking to expand the Transformers franchise, with Michael Bay, Akiva Goldsman, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Steven Spielberg heading up a “writer’s room” to generate ideas for future instalments.

Well, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner has now confirmed those plans during the toy manufacturer’s Q1 2015 Earnings Conference Call, as well as revealing that the next movie is slated to arrive in 2017.

“Our plan with the studio and filmakers you may have heard some writers being hired and we have in fact brought in Akiva Goldsman to lead a group of writers to really create a strategic plan around Transformers. We think there are any number of stories to be told from the brand that has been around for 30 years with amazing canon and mythology. »

Zoolander steals the spotlight from The Terminator at Paramount's CinemaCon panel

22 April 2015 1:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - Without massive tentpoles on the horizon this year, Paramount Pictures pulled off the impossible and actually created some buzz Tuesday morning on the first full day of CinemaCon.  It all began with the Arnold Schwarzenegger kicking things off with a sneak of "Terminator: Genisys." "We all know the first three 'Terminators.'  The one's I were involved with, the only ones that count made over $1 billion worldwide," Schwarzenegger says to the delight of the audience. "Script was fantastic when I read it. Great actors. Great producers. Paramount, thank you all for being such passionate people…I can talk about this movie for hours, but you want to see a little action." Twelve minutes of the still "work in progress" were then shown and, essentially, it was just extended views of shots or scenes in the latest trailer.  The human's future assault on the machines is much grander »

21 April 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We learned, at the end of March, Paramount was bringing on Akiva Goldsman (Jonah Hex, Batman & Robin) to help Transformers franchise director Michael Bay, exec producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura organize a "writer's room" to create a Transformers universe, a la Marvel's Avengers universe, so as to open up opportunities for more Transformers-releated sequels and possible spin-offs. Now Hasbro has reiterated the point as the company's CEO Brian Goldner told investors during an earnings call (via TFW2005): "Our plan with the studio and filmmakers, you may have heard some writers being hired and we have in fact brought in Akiva Goldsman to lead a group of writers to really create a strategic plan around Transformers.
