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.

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."

Megan Fox is more than just a pretty face. Like her character April O'Neill in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, she realizes looks can be deceiving. "I don't feel like being beautiful is a hindrance when you are an actress. I feel like it's probably something that's helpful," she tells Australia's Herald Sun. "But in terms of being critically acclaimed, that has to come from me giving a worthy performance. That lies within myself—it's not someone else's fault." However, Fox say she "definitely" can relate to her character's fearlessness. "I feel like I am not afraid to say what needs to be said, or do what I need to do, if I believe in something," the »

Charles Ratteray ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") is a professional concept and storyboard artist, who has worked on numerous big-budget productions. He recently designed storyboards for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which he posted on his fansite. They reveal a slightly different encounter between April O'Neil (Megan Fox) and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on a rooftop in New York. As you'll surely remember, after the Foot Soldiers were defeated by the Turtles, April chases after them. She climbs up a building via a fire escape. Once she gets to the top she sees her shadowy heroes celebrating their accomplishments and she snaps a picture of them. The storyboards below, feature this scene but with some different dialogue and a harsher reaction to April's candid photo. Instead of Donnie wiping the image from April's phone, it is crushed by one of them. Check it out. »

Though the two clearly think she's taking a photo and not video -- thus the blank stares, zero talking and almost painful half-smiles -- the video is strangely completely in line with their endearingly stoic reputations.

Cut it out Megan Fox! The 28-year-old said goodbye to her famous long locks, debuting a shoulder-length trim at a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles event in Australia on Monday. And the hair transformation doesn't stop there: The signature brunette also dyed her glossy caramel locks a darker chocolate shade. And while Fox has indulged in a trim here and a color swap there, the brunette beauty has kept her long dark tresses fairly consistent throughout the years. We've seen the actress dabble in ombré and grow her hair out to below waist-length, but she's never done anything too drastic to her hair. And really, why should she? She's Megan Fox, and radiant cocoa locks are part of her trademark »

Teenagers, even non-ninjas and non-turtles, have been eating up this cinematic waste product for weeks now. In one way, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a triumph for producer Michael Bay in that it is equally as godawful as his Transformers: Age of Extinction and a hit nonetheless. Pardon my cynicism. But it's hard to stomach the Bay contempt for youth audiences that says: You kids will lap up any crap I market with a big enough budget, even this worthless, brainless, needless reboot of the Ninja Turtle franchise.

Remakes and reboots are a cinema staple now, and hey, why not? Everything’s just a derivative of a Shakespeare play anyway. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are the latest franchise to receive a cinematic reboot (yes, it was a comic before all else, and okay, we’ve struggled to find the exact Shakespeare play where four mutated turtles learn martial arts from a rat, then go on to don masks and fight crime). The new Tmnt film makes the most of all the advancements in movie making since the 1987 cartoon series and the 1990 film (we now have CGI, Michael Bay making things go Boom, Crash, Explosion, “oooh look, Megan Fox”, tenuous exposition, Huge Boom, End Credits, possible sequel?) and it’s already proving to be a rip roaring success at this summer’s box office.
