Paramount's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an enormous box office hit, taking in nearly $320 million worldwide from a $125 million budget. Before you go and see these heroes in a half-shell in theaters again, we have a new behind-the-scenes featurette that shows how the four mutant brothers were brought to life.
Ilm visual effects supervisor Pablo Helman explains that the four actors who portrayed the turtles, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek and Jeremy Howard would work together on set in motion-capture suits, with the animators creating the turtles' look based on those performances. We also learn that one of the film's most humorous moments, where Leo, Mikey, Donnie and Raph are beatboxing in an elevator, was never part of the script, and suggested by Pablo Helman after noticing the actors "goofing off" between takes. Learn more about what it took to bring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the silver screen in this new video. »
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 the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan. Starring Megan Fox, Pete Ploszek, Johnny Knoxville, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, Tony Shalhoub, William Fichtner, Will Arnett, and Whoopi Goldberg, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is out now in North America and later this year in the UK. »
From acting opposite Optimus Prime in the "Transformers" franchise to befriending heroes in half shells known as the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," Megan Fox revealed to Gold Derby at the Australia premiere that the hardest CGI behemoths to work with are the "Transformers, because they're so massive ... and there's no one there acting with you so that was definitely more difficult." Also starring in "Turtles" is Will Arnett, who said, "A lot of times making these kinds of movies you have to do it against a tennis ball, but this time we had the benefit of actually doing it with real actors wearing motion capture suits." (Watch our green carpet chats with Fox and Arnett below.) -Break- Despite horrific reviews, 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' is Oscar bound Reflecting on the movie's awards prospects, Arnett jested, "I think there’s a lot of Oscar buzz, is that tr..."' »
BoJack Horseman is a weird cartoon about a washed-up sitcom star (who's a horse), a snappy social criticism of the entertainment industry, and the kind of in-jokey cartoon designed to tickle the internet. It's also one of the most aggressive portraits of depression I think I've ever seen. Look past the anthropomorphic animal characters and the satire of toxic celebrity culture: This show is radically sad. I love it.Netflix's BoJack is about BoJack Horseman (Will Arnett), the onetime star of the '90s sitcom Horsin' Around, but now a vaguely, persistently miserable louche. He's supposed to be writing a memoir, partially at the insistence of his agent, a cat named Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris); partially at the insistence of his publisher, a penguin named Pinky Penguin (Patton Oswalt, in one of many roles on the show); and partially because, well, what else is he doing? Eventually, he hires Dianne »

Netflix has done it again.
While the Broadcast Sitcom Assembly Line has generated shows ranging from the lukewarm (A to Z) to the downright languid (Mulaney), Netflix has trotted out (heh) BoJack Horseman, the rare show whose execution lives up to its ambition.
In this fall's stale comedy landscape, BoJack is like a breath of fresh air — and it's clear that Netflix has faith in its latest project, which was renewed four days after it premiered last month. The cartoon's just-go-with-it premise follows the title character (voiced by Will Arnett), a washed-up former equine star of the '90s hit sitcom "Horsin' Around" who's trying to write his memoir. The show really finds its footing by Episode 3, which skewers ...

Guardians of the Galaxy continues to rule the box office universe.
The cosmic Marvel adventure arrived in first place at the box office for a fourth weekend with $10.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The domestic haul for Guardians, which features Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana as intergalactic do-gooders, now stands at $294.6 million after six weeks of release.
Guardians furthered cemented itself as the top grossing film of the year in North America, eclipsing the $259.8 million earned by fellow Marvel movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The sci-fi romp earned an additional $11.5 million internationally, bringing its worldwide total to $586.2 million.
Despite the continued success of Guardians, the weekend box office marked the slowest of the year with the total for all films released projected at $65 million, down 23 percent from a year ago, according to Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak.

Reviewing a new TV show usually comes out to about 50 percent analysis of what's there, 50 percent psychic projection of what the show might become past the episode(s) you've seen. With comedy, the balance tilts heavily towards the psychic end of things, because so few comedies start out strongly, and you have to make an informed guess as to what mediocre pilot will turn out to be great like "Parks and Recreation," and what will settle for being crass like "2 Broke Girls." Even having more episodes beyond the pilot isn't always a help. Back in January, for instance, Comedy Central sent out the first two "Broad City"s to critics. They were clever and seemed to have a distinctive voice, but it was a busy time of year, and I moved on to other things. Then my friends kept raving about it, I watched the rest of the season over the summer, »

Believe it or not, it's been nearly 11 years since Arrested Development first came into our lives. Personally, we still find this a little hard to wrap our heads around, not only because the first episodes of the show still feel as fresh as the newer TV comedies on air right now, but also because we still get excited thinking about the prospect of new episodes. Keep scrolling to see how Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, and the rest of the Bluth family have transformed over the years. Use the arrows over the pictures to see each star during the first season of Arrested Development compared to a more recent picture from the past year.

Netflix has created such an interesting paradigm. Binge watching has become everyone’s favorite buzz phrase. Releasing an entire season of a show all at once used to seem daunting (to me anyway). Television had always been a weekly medium. You watch a variety of hours or half-hours, then process the episode over the next week while waiting for the next installment. The concept of instant gratification in entertainment is still relatively new. Like all relics I found myself incredulous to new technologies and was only capable of slowly dipping my toes into the water.
Netflix has released a lot of original shows but it seems that everything that isn’t House of Cards or Orange is the New Black receives little attention in the media. You’ll be hard pressed to find a lot of words dedicated to Lillyhammer, Hemlock Grove, »

Ever since Brian the dog was run over in Family Guy last year, there has been a hole in the schedules for a sophisticated talking cartoon animal who can stand on its hind legs for 25 minutes offloading wisecracks, ideally while drunk.
BoJack Horseman fills that cultural lacuna. The eponymous star of Netflixs new 12-part animated satire for adults is like a reverse centaur, and while having a human body rather than a horses has some drawbacks, it does mean he has the opposable thumbs to hold beer bottles and pour vodka into his blender for his morning pick-me-up. Waking up to find a horses head in ones bed was, according to Mario Puzo, one of lifes most terrifying ordeals, but BoJacks many lovers feel otherwise. True, his »

Aaron Paul had an eventful Monday. The night ended with his show “Breaking Bad” dominating at the Emmys, and Paul himself winning his third supporting actor trophy. But before that, the 35-year-old actor was running around Los Angeles on a “Breaking Bad” scavenger hunt. He created the event for fans and coordinated it via Twitter. As he explained on “Kimmel,” he was going through his house and found a bunch of memorabilia from “Breaking Bad” and thought this would be a great way to thank the fans for their support of the show and his career.

Calling all Friends fans in (or with access to) New York City: You’re about to get an exciting perk. Central Perk, that is.
Warner Bros. and Eight O’Clock Coffee are partnering to re-create the NBC sitcom’s iconic coffee shop in New York City this fall, Entertainment Weekly was first to report.
In addition to providing free coffee, the pop-up location in downtown Manhattan will allow visitors to take photos on the orange couch from the show, enjoy weekly musical performances — perhaps David Schwimmer will have another go on the keyboard? — and play trivia games. Bonus: James Michael Tyler »

Mere days after its debut, Netflix has renewed the animated comedy series "BoJack Horseman" for another twelve episodes on the streaming service.
Will Arnett stars in the show as BoJack, a failed legendary equine star from a 1990s family sitcom trying to navigate his way through self-loathing, whiskey and failed relationships. Aaron Paul voices his human sidekick and Amy Sedaris is his feline agent and former love interest. [Source: The Live Feed]

The animated character BoJack Horseman may be a washed up sitcom star on the show, but his self-titled Netflix Original series is a soaring success, it would seem. Although it has been streaming on the popular service for less than a week, the powers-that-be at Netflix have bestowed a renewal upon the animation – guaranteeing its return for a further 12 episodes.
Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and based on a character design by Lisa Hanawalt, BoJack Horseman tells the tale of a former TV star, that once starred in a fictional 1990s sitcom called Horsin’ Around. The end of that series, according to the show, resulted in the lead star spiralling on failed relationships, self-loathing and self destruction, with a cast of supporting characters around, enabling him all the way. The incredible tones of Will Arnett feature in the role of BoJack, and the rest of the cast is led by Aaron Paul, »

Despite all the suggestions that we’re in a new golden age of television, there’s still plenty of hand-wringing and pearl clutching over the phenomenon of binge watching. Some argue simply that it undermines the experience. It’s also been suggested that binge watching can kill.
That a lot of us are binging, particularly on streaming content, is clear. The health scare aspect seems to ignore that concerns over how much is too much go back to at least the 1980s. The argument that we’re somehow depriving ourselves by not seeing a series as originally intended (complete with months-long, between-seasons hiatuses) ignores the very basic human tendency to want more of what we like. Binge watching is perhaps the highest compliment that can be paid to an ongoing series.
Which brings us to Netflix’s latest original series, Bojack Horseman. It’s so elegantly conceived and wonderfully written that, »
