'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Rejected Turtle Designs

25 August 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got off the ground, the producer met with several different visual effects houses to determine which companies will work on the film. Over the weekend, concept artist Anthony Francisco shared the concept artwork he made for Illusion Industries, as a part of the company's pitch to work on the project.

While the company wasn't hired by the producers, this artwork shared on Anthony Francisco's Facebook page is much different than the finished look of these heroes in a half-shell. Take a look at the illustrations below, along with the artist's comments.

"When Martin Astles (Head Sculptor at Illusion Industries) told me that Michael Bay wanted to do a Tmnt movie, I started doing these concepts to help Illusion get the project. We did get a chance to meet with the producers and the meeting went well but we did not get the gig. »

William Fichtner is tired of people comparing his 'Crossing Lines' and 'Prison Break' characters. The 57-year-old actor stars as Detective Carl Hickman in the crime drama and has confessed he finds it annoying that people are constantly comparing it to his role as FBI Special Agent Alex Mahone in 'Prison Break'. Despite both of the characters being in law enforcement and suffering from substance abuse problems, William insists they are very different roles. He explained: ''Just because they are both cops ... They are completely different people from completely different backgrounds. One was an FBI agent in 'Prison Break' that had his »

15 August 2014 5:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles heads into its second weekend a champion. It is already considered a box office hit, a sequel was announced last Sunday, and it's all smooth sailing from here. The fans have spoken, and they love the ensemble behind these four brothers from the sewer. As we prepare for Mikey, Raph, Donnie and Leo to dominate the next three days once again, we caught up with scene stealer Noel Fisher, who delivers some of the funniest lines in the movie.

Look deep into Michelangelo's eyes, and you will definitely see Noel Fisher hiding in there. The resemblance is actually uncanny. And the two share a similar sense of humor. As easy to talk to and free spirited as you'd imagine holding a conversation with Mikey might be like, Noel Fisher shared his experiences in contributing to this 30-year-old franchise phenomenon, which shows no signs of slowing down. »

9 Things We Need to See in 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2'

13 August 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took in an impressive $65 million at the box office this past weekend, replacing the beloved Marvel sci-fi epic Guardians of the Galaxy as the number one movie in the country. Audiences enjoyed producer Michael Bay's rebooted take on the popular franchise, though critics didn't treat it too kindly. It didn't matter what they had to say though, as Paramount proudly announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 for June 6, 2016. That's a full two years for the filmmaking team to get it right!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a pretty streamlined affair, and only gave us a taste of this comic book universe, focusing on the four main turtles Donnie, Mikey, Raph and Leo, their sensei Master Splinter, their greatest enemy Shredder, roving Channel 6 reporter April O'Neil and her cameraman Vern Fenwick. A lot of classic and iconic characters, not to mention some very cool weapons and possible cameos, »

Marvelous DA7E 59: Inhumans, Aquaman, Tmnt and ASM2 Plot Insanity

13 August 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome To Issue 59!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation to the detriment of no one. It usually has spoilers.

This Week: Inhumans and Aquaman both look to be in our future. That plus: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Amazing Spider-Man 2 reveal the degree to which they are a mess. 

Yesterday, we got some rumblings about two new properties on the super franchise scene, one for the McU in Inhumans and one for DC/WB in the really horrible Aquaman scripting process they have going.

It was weird yesterday to see Variety drudge up a report from June that was basically saying: Yes, Jason Momoa is Aquaman in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. It got picked up a lot, because when the trades pull from something that distant there’s usually a reason. »

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Alternate Design Concept Art

13 August 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arrived in theaters to become a hit warranting a sequel, many fans were upset with the character designs for these four sewer dwelling brothers. Many though that they looked too human, with a lot of complaints aimed at their noses and their mouths. The turtles didn't always look this way, and before director Jonathan Liebesman and his team hit upon the designs we see on screen today, Raph, Leo, Mikey and Donnie went through some substantial changes. Talking with Cbm, artist Kelton Cram shared a look at early character design concept art, which offers an alternate take on these iconic heroes in a half shell. He also explains that they were supposed to be different shapes and sizes, each with completely different physical attributes.

Explaining the above piece of artwork, Kelton Cram says,

"They wanted all the Turtles to be unique in shape and size. »

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2' May Visit Dimension X

11 August 2014 6:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' box office success this weekend, Paramount Pictures quickly announced yesterday that a sequel is coming in 2016. Naturally, fans have already been wondering what Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will focus on. During an interview with Screenrant, director Jonathan Liebesman was asked if he would consider bringing Dimension X into the sequel. Here's what he had to say.

"Dimension X? F*ck yes. I would love to. I mean it's not up to me. It's up to all of us to decide."

In the comic books Dimension X was the home planet of the villainous Krang, before he was banished. He set up shop on Earth after stealing the massive mobile fortress known as The Technodrome, and teamed up with Shredder. The Technodrome also serves as a portal between Earth and Dimension X, so it's possible that could be explored more in the sequel.
