We’re over half way through the year now and the end of the summer is upon us, but rather than feeling down while those nights draw in, and the days become shorter, we thought we’d recap our favourite five funny movies of the year to cheer you up. So, get your chin up and take a look at our top five of 2014 so far.
5. The Muppets Most Wanted
It may not have done as well as its predecessor, but James Bobin’s hilarious Muppet movie sequel Muppets Most Wanted gave us a chuckle or ten when it was released in cinemas back in March. Now available on DVD and Blu-Ray, as well as digital download, the Ricky Gervais, Miss Piggy and Kermit starrer is definitely one to see if you’re a fan of our furry friends.

Good news, Netflix’s very funny looking original animated show BoJack Horseman featuring the voices of Will Arnett, Aaron Paul and Alison Brie will appear on Netflix on Friday 22nd August just in time to binge watch over the bank holiday weekend.
From what I have seen so far it looks promising but then so did Hemlock Grove. Expect a full report next week. In related news, Netflix have announced a whole slate of stand-up comedy exclusive to its service after the success of the recent Aziz Ansari special. So the likes of Chelsea Handler, Jim Jefferies, Bill Cosby, Bill Burr and Chelsea Peretti will be adding stand up shows to streaming between now and December. I have only heard of a couple of these acts but there again one of the best things to do with an hour to spare is browse Netflix for its plentiful supply of stand-up »

Netflix has amassed a fine comic cast for this new animated series (right): not only does it star Will Arnett as a washed-up sitcom horse, but there are also turns from Communitys Alison Brie, Strangers With Candys Amy Sedaris and, in his first post-Breaking Bad TV role, Aaron Paul. It feels similar in tone to the adult animated comedies of the 90s, most notably the similarly anthropomorphic Duckman. Catch the series in full from Friday.

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. »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is already a big hit at the domestic box office, but this action-packed reboot still has yet to open in several international territories. With the U.K. and Ireland release coming up in October, Paramount Pictures has released four new featurettes, each focused on one of the brothers, Leonardo (Pete Ploszek), Donatello (Jeremy Howard), Raphael (Alan Ritchson) and Michelangelo (Noel Fisher).
Watch as the Turtles' co-stars Megan Fox and Will Arnett explain why each of these brothers are so unique, along with director Jonathan Liebesman and Ninja Turtles comic book creator Kevin Eastman before heading to the theaters again this weekend.

Will Arnett's media footprint is about to expand considerably.

The company, which will develop and produce content across all platforms, has already inked a first-look deal at CBS TV Studios, the studio home to Arnett's CBS comedy The Millers. For Electric's first project, the company is in final negotiations to option Johanna Stein's How Not to Calm a Child on a Plane and Other Lessons in Parenting

Just days after Paramount announced that it was going ahead with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 following the surprisingly big box office returns of the first film, the studio has already slotted the sequel for a prime summer release date. Moviegoers can look forward to reuniting with Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael on June 3rd, 2016.

On the other side of the lens, it’s expected that Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek, Johnny Knoxville, Jeremy Howard, Tony Shalhoub and Danny Woodburn will all be returning for the sequel.

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, »
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.
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. »
There are a lot of problems with Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but it’s just entertaining enough and that’s in large part due to the title characters who, for some reason, aren’t the stars of the film. Rather than run with what made the original movies so special and put the focus on the brotherhood and dynamics of their relationship, we get a movie about April O’Neil’s aspiration to become a hard news reporter. Thanks to the fact that Megan Fox and Will Arnett are two of the most famous names in the film, the four guys responsible for the heart of it, the Turtles, aren’t even getting a fraction of the amount of recognition they deserve, so this edition of Unsung Hero goes to Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard and Pete Ploszek. Hit the jump for more. Who They Are: »

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. »
Joining the premium-tv ranks requires a certain commitment to doing what others aren’t. Hence, Netflix gets virtually no points for “BoJack Horseman,” a raunchy animated series that not-so-boldly goes where seemingly everyone — Fox, Comedy Central, Adult Swim — has gone before. Will Arnett and Aaron Paul lend their voices to the enterprise (as well as helping pad the roster of exec producers), but it’s such a stale premise that even when the series musters the occasional smirk, it feels deserving of a trip to the glue factory. Does “BoJack’s” Hollywood satire merit saddling up to watch? To quote the protagonist, “Neigh.”
Part of the series’ problem right out the starting gate is that Arnett’s boorish, self-absorbed former sitcom star feels like little more than an equine version of a character he’s played a dozen times, most effectively in “Arrested Development.” BoJack headlined a “Full House”-like »

Conan O'Brien admitted on Tuesday's show that he didn't know Robin Williams personally. He only knew the late actor and comedian professionally, and as a frequent guest on O'Brien's myriad late-night talk shows. But it was through that relationship that he decided Robin Williams was “the best talk show guest in the world.” See video: Conan O'Brien Salutes Robin Williams News of Williams’ death by apparent suicide broke during the taping of O'Brien's show on Monday. He and guest Will Arnett said a few words at the time, but by Tuesday night's show, he and his team had crafted something more. »
