Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Vehicles Revealed by Michael Bay

26 April 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I have yet to see last year's live action take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not out of any resentment for the material (I loved the B&W comics as a kid and there are actually quite a few Platinum Dunes movies that I really enjoy - Friday the 13th chief among them) aside from the fact that it just didn't seem like my thing. But enough of you did, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is on the way next year. The other day producer Michael Bay revealed images of some of the vehicles from the film on his website. I'm not sure if the Turtle's party wagon was in the first installment or not, but I'm willing to bet that Polaris' three wheeled motorcycle was not. Check out the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 vehicle images below. The film hits on June 3rd, 2016. It stars Megan Fox, Tyler Perry, »

Megan Fox returns as April O’Neill, as does William Fichtner (Eric Sacks) and Will Arnett (Vernon Fenwick), while Stephen Amell (Arrow) joins the cast as Casey Jones and Alessandra Ambrosio (Casino Royale) will play Vernon’s girlfriend.

Tyler Perry Joins Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

23 April 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The heroes in a half-shell will be back on the big screen next summer and today brings word of another live-action actor slated to join them. Tyler Perry, most recently spotted in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, has been added to the cast of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 as scientist Baxter Stockman.

23 April 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

When he’s not busy writing and directing his own films or ruling his multi-media empire, Tyler Perry likes to pop up unexpectedly in genre films.

Gone Girl's Tyler Perry Joins Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 As 'Baxter Stockman'

23 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Joining classic villains Bebop and Rocksteady in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel will be another fan-favourite character from Tmnt canon, Baxter Stockman; and according to Variety he'll be played by none other than Tyler Perry. There have been several different incarnations of this sycophantic scientist over the years, but he's usually depicted as one of Shredder's lackeys and the man who creates the lethal Mouser robots. Oh, and there's also a good chance he'll become a mutant fly. Perry, who was last seen as Ben Affleck's attorney in Gone Girl, joins Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and Stephen Amell in the sequel which Michael Bay is producing along with his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec are penning the script. Production is set to start next month. »

Tyler Perry Joins 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2'

23 April 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Tyler Perry is adding yet another eclectic role to his idiosyncratic acting career, joining the cast of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2."

Perry, creator of the wacky "Madea" series and recent co-star in "Gone Girl," is set to play Baxter Stockman, who, as The Hollywood Reporter explains, is one of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"'s "major villains" and "a scientist who first creates the Mousers, a line of rat-destroying machines. Later he becomes a cyborg." He takes over the role from actor K. Todd Freeman, who made a brief appearance as Stockman in the 2014 flick.

Perry joins fellow new addition Stephen Amell, who's playing classic "Turtles" character Casey Jones in the follow-up. Will Arnett and Megan Fox are reprising their roles from the reboot.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" is due out on June 3, 2016.

'Bebop' & 'Rocksteady' Confirmed For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Sequel

22 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It seems the mutated warthog (Bebop) and rhino (Rocksteady) Tmnt villains will indeed be causing problems for the Heroes in a Half Shell in the upcoming sequel to the recent live-action reboot. This won't be too surprising to fans of the franchise, as the characters were originally supposed to show up in the first film but were cut because of perceived overcrowding. Bebop and Rocksteady weren't actually original comic creations, and made their debut in the '80s cartoon -- but they've gone on to become two of the most popular Turtles baddies out there; and were recently responsible for an incredibly shocking moment in the current comic series. No word on which actors will bring life to these beasts, but they'll join Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, and newcomer Stephen Amell as Casey Jones. Teenage Mutant Turtles 2 (working title "Half-Shell") is set to hit »

'Ninjago', 'Lego Batman' & 'Lego Movie 2' Shift Release Dates

20 April 2015 2:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Building a strong slate of animated tentpoles that extends well into 2018, Warner Bros. Pictures today confirmed the release dates of three much-anticipated Lego features. The announcement was made by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

The next Lego film to open will be the as-yet-untitled Lego Batman feature, which is coming to theaters earlier than planned, with the global launch starting domestically on February 10, 2017. Seven months later comes Ninjago, which had been slated for release in fall 2016; however the film is still under construction so it is being moved to September 22, 2017 domestically, with international dates to follow. The Lego Movie Sequel, the follow-up to the smash hit The Lego Movie, is opening one week earlier than originally slated, now being released domestically on May 18, 2018, beginning its worldwide release.

In making the announcement, Dan Fellman made the following statement.

The Lego Movie Sequel and Batman and Ninjago Spinoffs Build New Release Dates

20 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has announced The Lego Movie Sequel release dates along with the dates for Lego Batman (unofficial title) and Ninjago. According to THR, Lego Batman is first up and will be released on February 10, 2017, which comes close to the February 7, 2014 release date for The Lego Movie, and that worked out pretty well for everyone. When we last reported on Lego Batman, producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller said the plot revolved around the question “Can Batman be happy?” and star Will Arnett teased the action will be incredible. The movie will also acknowledge every era of Batman filmmaking. Next up, Ninjago has been pushed back from September 23, 2016 to September 22, 2017. There are currently no details on the plot, but Lord and Miller will also be producing and say it will tie into a larger Avengers-style universe. Finally, The Lego Movie Sequel has been pushed back to May 18, 2018, which is a painfully long wait. »
