Stephen Amell discusses Casey Jones role in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

15 July 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you’re a big fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and are looking forward to seeing Casey Jones make a faithful transition from the panel to the screen in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, then you may be a little concerned by the latest comments from actor Stephen Amell (Arrow), who has warned that his upcoming interpretation “is not the Casey Jones that a lot of comic fans have come to know and love.”

“It’s certainly not your father’s or your younger self’s Casey Jones, but that’s,” Amell tells IGN. “He is not the Casey Jones that a lot of comic fans have come to know and love. He is a guy with a job that lives in New York and loves hockey. When things go awry, and when he goes through the normal methods of what someone would do when »

'Independence Day 2' Viral Teasers and Cast Photo

7 July 2015 5:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Americans across the country were celebrating the 4th of July holiday, Independence Day: Resurgence star Jeff Goldblum and director Roland Emmerich sent out two cryptic videos from their official Facebook pages, with the sequel's Twitter page sending out even more Independence Day-themed videos. Each of these viral videos includes quotes from the original 1996 classic Independence Day, with some sort of static interference that could be from the aliens who are about to return from their home planet, several years after their initial invasion. Unfortunately, we don't get any actual footage from the sequel. Since production just started last month, it's unclear when we'll get our first official look at Independence Day: Resurgence.

The new title Independence Day: Resurgence was unveiled during a live stream Q&A directly from the set of this sequel, where fans also got their first look at the movie poster and a vehicle known as the Moon Tug. »

Independence Day 2 Poster Ups The Stakes

9 June 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like the aliens have their sights set a little higher than the White House this time – the first poster for Independence Day 2 finds that dreaded world-destroying ship about to blast its way to Earth’s core.

A few days back, we got an official synopsis for the blockbuster sequel, which will again be directed by Roland Emmerich, that promises destruction on a planetary scale, and the marketing department evidently saw that and decided to mess around with its poster. Here’s that synopsis again:

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction. »

Independence Day 2 Synopsis Revealed

8 June 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Independence Day 2 has been busily filling out its cast over the past few weeks, recruiting a mixture of fresh faces and old faithfuls to power the second entry in what is planned as a blockbuster franchise. Now, a information sheet for Fox’s upcoming schedule has shed some light on the plot of the follow-up.

Though the information sheet synopsis isn’t quite an official one, it does give an idea of what fans can expect from the sequel:

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet.

Bumblebee cameo spotted in set video from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

8 June 2015 5:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There had been talk from Paramount executives about their franchise movies not being in a shared universe when saying plans for movies like a Transformers and G.I. Joe crossover would probably never happen. However, it does seem as though Transformers exist in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle universe, as evident by a set video taken by this chap.

In the video, someone in a Bumblebee outfit during a Halloween parade high fives Noel Fisher, who plays Michelangelo in the movie. So, the Transformers certainly exist in their universe, even if it’s just the Michael Bay produced films.

Check it out below:

A Prison Break Limited Series Is In Development At Fox

3 June 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The commissioning of television projects is always a gamble. A pitch that sounded like a guaranteed win can all too easily become the first casualty of pilot season, if the magic formula of talent – both onscreen and off – is not achieved. In these uncertain economic times, when regular broadcast channels are competing more and more with original content produced by streaming platforms, such as Netflix and Amazon, an aversion to such risk could well explain the current trend of revisiting past glories. As The X Files gears up for a limited season, and a 24 spin-off is rumoured, TVLine has exclusively revealed that the popular Fox series Prison Break is also officially in development for a limited series.

Prison Break began airing in January 2006, and quickly found a fan-base with its increasingly claustrophobic tale of conspiracy, political intrigue and family drama. Starring Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield and Dominic Purcell as his brother, »
