Craig Ferguson Wakes Up in Bed With Drew Carey on Final ‘Late Late Show’ (Video)

17 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stephen Colbert wasn’t the only late-night TV talk show host to say goodbye on Thursday night.

Craig Ferguson, the longest-tenured host of “The Late Late Show,” bid his staff and studio audience adieu at the Thursday taping, which aired on Friday night (technically Saturday morning, if you’re a stickler). TheWrap was at the taping, but one special moment was held back from both Ferguson’s final crowd and the press — until now, of course.

20 Most Viewed Movie Trailers of 2014

18 December 2014 6:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

THR has released an official list of the most viewed trailers of 2014. And you may be surprised to see which movie came in first. While a lot of your are probably guessing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was actually Fifty Shades of Grey that took top honors. While Star Wars: The Force Awakens had the best start of the year, grabbing 58.2 million views in its first five days of release, it was Fifty Shades of Grey that won the race with its four month head start. The trailer has been viewed 93 million times on Youtube since its July 24 release. Don't feel too bad for Star Wars 7, though, as it came in second place with 81 million Youtube views since its debut over Thanksgiving weekend. In third place was Avengers: Age of Ultron with 78 million views. Here is the full top 20 list of most watched trailers followed by the trailers themselves. »

Blu-ray Review: Slices of Solid Action in Surprising ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’

16 December 2014 8:37 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago - Look past the cheesy carbs and b-boy poses, this shiny mo-cap reboot of cartoon juggernaut “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” offers slick entertainment that makes for a welcome surprise for middle school fare. Proving that executive producer Michael Bay has both grown up but it still frightfully in tune with what jazzes teens, this surprise box office hit is indeed a nice slice of a blockbuster spectacle, whether or not a viewer cares about the turtles or not.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

It’s a good year for action movies when even a “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” feature boasts sequences that could stand next to select moments from “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and even the almighty Chicago Film Critics Association Best Foreign Language film nominee, “The Raid 2.” This film from the usually-unpromising director Jonathan Liebesman has a strong quantity of sequences where the biggest traces of »

Bebop and Rocksteady confirmed for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2; Casey Jones could feature

8 December 2014 2:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We reported last week that David Green (Earth to Echo) would be replacing Jonathan Liebsman as director for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, and we can now confirm some of the previous rumours surrounding new character additions.

According to Omelete (via Collider), long-time adversaries Bebop and Rocksteady will appear in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, possibly alongside Casey Jones. A few months back we posted some concept artwork for Bebop and Rocksteady and were asked to remove them, prompting speculation that they would feature in the sequel.

“We can say that Bebop and Rocksteady are in the film, and Casey Jones is a character that we love and we’re trying to fit him in as well,” said producer Andrew Form at Ccxp.

Co-producer Brad Fuller also confirmed the return of April O’Neil, Vernon Fenwick and Shredder. No word yet on Krang.

This will be Bebop and Rocksteady’s first big-screen appearance. »

Things I Learned at Warners' Bricksburg 'Lego Movie' Awards Party

6 December 2014 7:16 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Chris Pratt is tall. But not as tall as Will Arnett. They greeted each other warmly in the back courtyard of Bricksburg, the former Funny or Die offices on Seward in the heart of old Hollywood, where Warner Bros. threw an awards cocktail party for "The Lego Movie." The two actors didn't actually interact that much playing Emmet and Batman, respectively, while making the animated movie, which has since turned into a surprise blockbuster and Oscar frontrunner--although directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord did get them together to riff in the sound booth a few times.  That's the loneliness of the animated voice artist. Pratt is looking sleek and genial as he anticipates not only a solid run in the Marvel universe--after being anxious anticipating the fate of "Guardians of the Galaxy" (which has landed on the Oscar VFX shortlist and will be up for more technical nods)--but the »

Oscar Season: Voting Deadlines Looming As 2014 Race Heats Up To Fever Pitch

5 December 2014 4:32 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Now it’s getting busy. Awards season, that is. Judging from the frantic calls trying to schedule interviews and other things as various voting deadlines loom, I would say we are in the thick of it. Golden Globe nomination ballots are due back Monday. SAG nominating ballots go out now, and both key precursor verdicts will be announced next week along with AFI’s annual 10 best list coming out on Monday morning. La Film Critics will be announcing their picks on Sunday, then its the nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, which wound up predicting every eventual 2013 Oscar winner except Makeup and Foreign Film. There are junkets galore and tons of events going on in NYC this week, and here on the West Coast the activity is no less crazy, with several contenders trying to make any impression they can on voters — particularly Oscar »

3 New Characters You'll See in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

5 December 2014 1:14 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Earlier today we learned that Earth to Echo director David Green is in talks with Paramount Pictures to direct Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. After seeing what producer Michael Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman did with the first film... ugh. 

The studio can't seem to get their '80s properties right. As you know, they also destroyed G.I. Joe, which is unfortunately getting a third film, and then there's Transformers. In a recent interview with Omelete (via Collider), Andrew Form revealed some new characters that will make and appearance in the movie. 

“We can say that Bebop and Rocksteady are in the film, and Casey Jones is a character that we love and we’re trying to fit him in as well”

I love these characters, especially Casey Jones, who I think deserves his own movie. It's cool that these characters will be included in the story, but after seeing »

'Ninja Turtles 2' Will Introduce Bebop and Rocksteady

5 December 2014 10:38 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one day after it was revealed that Earth to Echo filmmaker Dave Green is replacing Jonathan Liebesman on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, we have confirmation that classic Tmnt villains Bebop and Rocksteady will be included in the sequel. Of course, we don't know much more than that, since the script is being written by Josh Appelbaum and Andr&#233 Nemec as we speak. But producers Bradley Fuller and Andrew Form confirmed the news during the Comic Con Experience in Brazil. Here's what they had to say below, revealing that they're trying to fit in Casey Jones as well.

"We can say that Bebop and Rocksteady are in the film, and Casey Jones is a character that we love and we're trying to fit him in as well."

Both Bebop and Rocksteady were not featured in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 May Gain David Green

5 December 2014 6:51 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alright, who was it who plunked down their hard-earned cash to watch the painfully dull CGI-fest that was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back in August? Come on, fess up. I’ll wait… It was you?!? Gah, I thought so. Someone must have seen it, because somehow the franchise reboot grossed $477 million worldwide, leading Paramount to eagerly greenlight (*shudder*) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Now, we’re hearing that another key piece of the puzzle is about to fall in place for the fast-tracked sequel, with Earth to Echo director David Green reportedly in early talks to direct.

It’s a little surprising that Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles), the director of the first installment, wasn’t asked back, especially given how excited he appeared to be about the prospect of turning Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into a bona fide franchise. However, it seems evident that Paramount wanted to go in »

Tmnt 2 Eyes a New Director; Bebop & Rocksteady Likely to Appear

5 December 2014 6:05 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot may not have been a big success with the critics, but kids and fans turned up at the theaters. We know that a sequel is already scheduled, and now Paramount is looking to Earth to Echo's director to bring the sequel to life with fan-favorite characters Bebop and Rocksteady.  Come inside for the latest report!

While I generally enjoyed Ninja Turtles for what it was (and I think they nailed the characters perfectly), it was far from a great film.  Mostly, the story felt like it was all over the place and lacked focus.  With that in mind I'm crossing my fingers that the sequel can do a better job, and maybe a change of directors will be exactly what's needed.  The Wrap is reporting that Paramount is looking at David Green, who did this Summer's Earth to Echo, to helm the second Tmnt film. »

Why Are There No Women Late-Night Talk Show Hosts?

5 December 2014 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

See if you can figure out what these 10 performers have in common: Judd Apatow, Will Arnett, Wayne Brady, Drew Carey, Jim Gaffigan, Billy Gardell, Sean Hayes, Thomas Lennon, John Mayer, and Kunal Nayyar.

Well, for one thing, they were all recently announced as guest hosts on CBS' "The Late Late Show" for the three-month interval between the end of Craig Ferguson's tenure (on Dec. 19) and the beginning of James Corden's.

And, for another thing, they're all guys.

There have been a lot of complaints, especially in the last year, that late-night TV is a sausage fest, but it's become especially apparent once again in the last few days. Really, CBS couldn't find one funny woman to sit at the "Late Late Show" desk, even for just a week?

Well, okay, actually, they found five of them. That would be the panel from CBS daytime chat show "The Talk" -- Julie Chen, »

David Green To Helm "Ninja Turtles" Sequel

4 December 2014 9:04 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

David Green ("Earth to Echo") is in talks to direct the sequel to this year's live-action meets CG-animated "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" film reboot at Paramount Pictures. Green would take over from Jonathan Liebesman who helmed the first film, which has grossed $478 million worldwide.

Paramount is moving fast on the sequel and wanted to take a new approach as well. As a result, Liebesman is out due to his commitments to the ten-part event series "Shannara" clashing with the accelerated production timeline of the 'Turtles' follow-up to get it into cinemas by 2016.

Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are returning as producers, while Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are penning the script. Megan Fox and Will Arnett are expected to reprise their roles from the first film.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 finds its director

4 December 2014 5:07 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite all the claims and promises Jonathan Liebesman made about a sequel for this summer’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it seems as though he won’t be back for another outing.

Instead, Variety are reporting that David Green (Earth to Echo) will take over the director’s chair for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles earned around $477 million worldwide and Paramount announced a sequel for the movie on its weekend opening, despite not having the cast confirmed to return, a director, or a script in place.

No details on plot for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 have been announced, but Megan Fox, who played April O’Neil in the original, hinted that there were Easter Eggs in the movie to suggest that Bebop and Rockstead would feature. In fact, concept art was leaked online a few months back that suggested both Bebop and Rocksteady would be in the sequel, »

'Ninja Turtles 2' Gets 'Earth to Echo' Director

4 December 2014 4:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 has found its director in David Green, best known for this past summer's Earth to Echo. While Jonathan Liebesman was expected to return, Paramount decided to try a new approach, and held a director search these past couple of months. While there is hope that this sequel may be better the the lackluster reboot, it should be noted that Michael Bay is still on board as a producer.

Even though it has a strong fan base and has been around for decades, the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles still proved to be a surprise hit at the box office, as some feared this take on the franchise was destined to bomb. It earned an estimated $464 million worldwide. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will still be produced by Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are writing the script. No »
