Neill Blomkamp: I Messed Up 'Elysium'!

26 February 2015 3:22 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After making his directorial debut with the 2009 Best Picture nominee District 9, Neill Blomkamp certainly became a filmmaker that everyone had their eyes on. His follow-up, 2013's Elysium, was received fairly well by the nation's critics (68% on Rotten Tomatoes) and took in over $286 million worldwide, from a $115 million budget, although some considered it a failed effort. While doing the press rounds for his new film Chappie, the filmmaker spoke candidly about Elysium in an interview with Uproxx, stating that he believes he "f---ed it up."

"So, let's say you make District 9 and it does well. So, now, a normal director is like, "Sh*t, I've got this pressure because this last film did well and I hope this one lives up to it." I don't have that. It definitely doesn't bother me. The thing that bothers me is if I feel like I f---ed it up."

Crossing Lines: Season Three Renewal for TV Series

20 February 2015 6:18 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

As you may recall, NBC aired the first season of Crossing Lines a couple summers ago. It didn't perform well enough in the ratings and the network opted not to pick up the second season. Crossing Lines has been a success in the international market however and Netflix recently started streaming season two for Us audiences.

Deadline now reports that a third season of 12 episodes has been ordered with Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost, Revolution) and Goran Visnjic (ER) joining the cast. They'll join Donald Sutherland as leads, replacing William Fichtner.

The X-Files' Frank Spotnitz is joining the show as an executive producer alongside Tandem's Rola Bauer. Crossing Lines creator and executive producer Ed Bernero departed after Season two to be close to his family in California.

The series shoots in Europe and filming will be getting underway next week in Prague. »

Exclusive ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Featurettes – Out Today To Buy

16 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

After all the initial mumbles died down because Michael Bay was backing a new Turtles film, it then came out and actually received quite a lot of love and especially from the younger audience, which is the right market after all! We liked that it hit that scene perfectly and now we’re celebrating because it’s out to buy on Blu-ray and DVD now from Paramount Home Media Distribution.

In this reimagining of the legendary heroes in a half-shell, New York is under attack by the sinister Shredder, but fearless leader Leonardo, brilliant and brainy Donatello, rough and rebellious Raphael and wild and crazy Michelangelo take to the streets to defend their home with the help of intrepid reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and their brilliant sensei, Splinter. Packed with jaw-dropping action and special effects and loaded with the franchise’s signature humor, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is fun for the whole family. »

5 more great episodes of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (with cake!)

5 February 2015 3:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To celebrate Tmnt season 3 starting this weekend, Matt once again watches some favourite episodes and eats too much cake...

In an incredible display of commitment to my craft, in order to complete this article I spent an entire weekend watching cartoons and eating cake. You’re welcome, Den of Geek readers.

With the third season of the cartoon launching in the UK and the second half of the second season arriving on DVD, I decided it was time I wrote something else about one of my favourite television shows. Then, in my local supermarket, I found this.

It was the same Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cake that I had bought last year, except that this one was Michelangelo! As it had a slightly different mouth and a different colour headband, I obviously had to buy it immediately. I have no problem paying out twice for a lazy rejig if I »

221 Things Wrong with the New 'Ninja Turtles' Movie

19 January 2015 12:14 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was certainly a big hit at the box office last summer, taking in $191 million domestically and $477 million worldwide. However, it wasn't received quite so well with the nation's critics, earning just a 21% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Whether you love it or hate it, the remake did well enough for Paramount to give the go-ahead for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, which is set to hit theaters on June 6, 2016 from director Dave Green (Earth to Echo). While we wait for more details to emerge on the sequel, the folks over at Cinema Sins have broken down everything that's wrong with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from »

'Ninja Turtles 2' Shoots This April in New York City

14 January 2015 2:15 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few days after Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opened this past August, Paramount Pictures announced that the sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, will arrive in theaters on June 6, 2016. We haven't heard much about the sequel since then, but, while promoting their upcoming time travel adventure Project Almanac, producer Andrew Form confirmed that production is scheduled to begin very soon. Here's what he had to say below.

"We're in prep right now. We start shooting in New York in April."

Andrew Form, along with his producing partner Bradley Fuller, confirmed last month that popular villains Bebop and Rocksteady will be in the sequel, and that they are "trying to work in" Casey Jones as well. Andrew Form revealed that there were a number of characters they wanted to fit in the first movie, but now they have a chance to use them in the sequel.

Critics Poll: What Was the Worst Movie of 2014?

2 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As Vulture celebrates the finest films of 2014 (you can see critic David Edelstein's top 11 here), so must we celebrate the worst. Welcome to the 8th edition of our annual worst-movies roundup, as voted on by critics, where soon-to-be-forgotten misfires earn a last turn in the spotlight. This year, Vulture polled film critics on the year’s most torturous moviegoing experiences (some publications submitted collective ballots). Those responses, combined with a number of notable worst-of lists published elsewhere, were tallied to produce the final ranking of the ten worst films of 2014.10. Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesWarning: If you need a reminder that nostalgia's a bitch, then rent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In this overedited, manically paced, and generally misconceived action-comedy, four benevolent steroid-enhanced monsters with no noses attempt to rescue well-meaning-but-journalistically-challenged TV reporter April O'Neil (Megan Fox) while fighting William Fichtner and a big Japanese man in a knife-suit.
