Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Gets A Blu-Ray/DVD Release Date

1 hour ago

The Jonathan Liebesman-directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles provided some decent competition to Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy in early August. Even though the turtles weren't able to sustain themselves against the onslaught of Rocket & Groot, they did manage to be a modest box office success with a gross of over $342M. Paramount has already announced a sequel to be released on June 3, 2016. We may have seen the Blu-ray/DVD special edition Raphael Gift Set a while back, but now we have the official release date for the aforementioned set as well as the 2-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo. The Blu-ray/DVD will be available for purchase in stores and online in the U.S. on December 16. Along with the announcement of the release date came a ton of special features, which you can see listed below. They include an extended ending, the "Shell Shocked" music video, and more!

Rumor: Rihanna Offered Bond 24 Role

1 hour ago

Barbadian superstar, Rihanna, has dominated pop charts and won multiple Grammy Awards, but is she preparing to take one more shot at acting? According to a recent article in The Sunday Mirror (via Ok!), was approached by Bond 24 producers about a role in the film. According to their anonymous source the singer was thrilled with the offer. "Rihanna is a big fan of the Bond films and has always loved the idea of appearing in one," The Daily Mirror source explained. "She didn't even need to think about it, she knows she wants to do it. She's really excited." Rihanna hasn't done much acting, but she did appear in 2012's Battleship as Petty Officer Cora 'Weps' Raikes and as herself in the 2013 comedy, This Is the End. Bond 24 will be directed by Sam Mendes ("Skyfall"), from a screenplay written by John Logan. The cast will include: Daniel Craig »

Ant-man: Hank Pym's Company Logo/Name Revealed

1 hour ago

Ever since filming for Ant-Man moved from San Francisco to Atlanta last month, the chance of getting set photos, or anything remotely interesting from the Marvel production, has been slim to none. It even seems Marvel has put an end to actress Evangeline Lilly's subtle Ant-Man posts on Instagram. However, I just stumbled across a somewhat interesting post on the photo-sharing service which features one of the movie extras dressed in his uniform. While the photo's caption reveals the uploader, whose name I'll keep anonymous, is playing a Security Guard, his cap reveals he'll be employed at none other than Pym Technologies. Check out the logo below! So, instead going with the simple Pym Particles, like in the comics, Hank Pym's (Michael Douglas) company name in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be Pym Technologies. The name-change probably comes from the inclusion of Darren Cross (Corey Stoll), who runs Cross Technological Enterprises in the comics, »

Ben Affleck On The Pressure Of Playing The Caped Crusader In Batman v Superman

1 hour ago

In a recent interview with Variety, the trade asked Ben Affleck what he considers to be the bigger challenge: making sure that an adaptation of a beloved novel like Gone Girl does the source material justice or taking on a lead role in what they describe as the "greatest comic book franchise ever". Here's what he told them. "Probably the comicbook franchise, if only because Batman has been around since the 1930s and a fixed part of American culture. But, anytime you build a character when the audience has a firm belief on how it should be, like “Fifty Shades” or “Star Wars” … It can be an asset and a challenge. Anyone who did it would face that challenge. The truth is, it all melts away once people see the movie." Based on the borderline ridiculous reaction to Affleck being cast in the role, you can understand his position here, »

Update: Wolverine Star Kevin Durand Being Eyed To Play 'Negan' In The Walking Dead?

4 hours ago

The Walking Dead comic book series have been wondering when and if Negan would appear in the TV show, and it sounds as if it will be sooner rather than later! According to Nuke The Fridge, Kevin Durand revealed that AMC have approached him to play the foul mouthed and sadistic villain in a recent conference call promoting The Strain. The actor is quoted as saying, "I’ve had a lot of people with The Walking Dead talk to me, mentioned that they see me for a character named ‘Negan,’ but I haven’t read the comic." Now, this isn't the most reliable of sites and they're quick to point out that they are the first report this news. Are they twisting his words (after all, it could be that Durand was referring to fans rather than those working on the series) or have they come across a huge scoop? »

4 hours ago

The Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie grossed $187M at the domestic box office and an additional $154M at the foreign box office. The film's success has feuled an explosion in sales of pet turtles. The CBC is reporting, sales of pet turtles has risen 20% sinceTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released in theaters this past August. Steve Mark, who worked with the province's parks department told CBC, "Kids, with their imagination, are thinking if they got four of them maybe they'll turn into the ninja turtles." Mark saw the same boost in demand during the 1990's when the first the first film adaptation was released. On the downside, this rise in demand has led to a spike in illegal smuggling of the creatures. Mark believe 9 out of 10 turtles found in pet stores were acquired illegally.

Corey Stoll Thinks Ant-man Could Beat The Hulk; Says 'Yellowjacket' Is Not Really A Villain

6 hours ago

In a Clevver Movies video interview that was overlooked during the San Diego Comic-Con madness, actor Corey Stoll had revealed why he's excited to be playing Darren Cross, aka Yellowjacket, in Marvel's Ant-Man movie. Within that explanation, the actor also insists Ant-Man could defeat the likes of the Incredible Hulk. When asked which of Yellowjacket's powers is he most looking forward to playing with, Corey Stoll answered "shrinking" without any hesitation. "It's so weird...if somebody were to [ask] 'What [super]power would you want?' you wouldn't say, 'I'd like to be able to shrink down to the size of an ant.' That seems like being the opposite of a superhero, but when you actually think about all the things you could do if you were that small,  and you retained your fullsize strength, you would be sort of unbeatable. Like, I think the Ant-Man could beat the Hulk. He »

Miles Teller Talks The Fantastic Four 'Differences' And Potential Superhero Saturation

7 hours ago

When Vulture caught up with Miles Teller at a Whiplash screening last night, the actor promised that Fox's Fantastic Four reboot, in which he plays Mr. Fantastic, will be “different in every way” compared to the original series. He continued, “All those actors were a lot older, their characters were in different places. The tone of this film is completely different: We don’t have Michael Chiklis in a big Styrofoam thing, and I think that [a more grounded approach] is what people are into — X-Men: First Class is doing that. You’re dealing with these characters but you’re making them real people in how they exist day-to-day. People wanted it to be taken more seriously than the kind of Dick Tracy, kitschy, overly comic-book world.” When asked if he's worried about superhero movie saturation when Marvel's First Family returns in 2015, Teller said, “At the end of the day, it depends on the »

New Look At Amy Adams As Batman v Superman's 'Lois Lane' May Reveal Huge Spoiler

7 hours ago

As Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently being shot in Detroit, we're going to go ahead and guess that it probably isn't doubling for Smallville, but Man of Steel star Amy Adams definitely looks a little bit country when she was spotted between takes on set recently! It appears as if these photos may have been taken at the same place that rundown manor is, a location which many believe to be Wayne Manor after a trailer for Alfred Pennyworth was spotted there.  But wait a second! If you take a look at one of the images below, you can see that Lois is wearing what appears to be an engagement ring. The site says that these photos were taken beween scenes, and I'm not overly familiar with Adams' personal life, so...is she engaged to Clark Kent?! Could Lois be undercover? The Daily Planet journalist is certainly »

Gotham Ratings Slip Slightly During Second Week But Batman Prequel Still Going Strong

9 hours ago

With shows like Castle, The Big Bang Theory and WWE Raw all vying for the attention of television viewers last night, Gotham continues to do well suffering a drop of only 13% (though some sites say it is was low as 11% or 12%). This is considered "standard second-week slippage" according to Entertainment Weekly, and though the Network would liked to have seen a great retention of viewers, this is by no means a bad result. Those DVR figures for the series premiere last week showed what a difference thy can make too. Total viewership was 7.3 million viewers, 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, and it's worth noting that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. suffered a second episode drop of a whopping 34% last year, so Gotham is doing just fine!

Gotham Season 1, Episode 2 "Selina Kyle" - The Breakdown

9 hours ago

This second episode took more than half of its time to finally begin focusing on Selina Kyle. It also didn't really focus on anything other than her experience hiding from the Dollmakers henchmen. There wasn't any real background on her, save but a small amount that was thrown into the episode. The gist of it about a mother who is "out there somewhere," The episode fixated early on (mostly) toward Fish Mooney, followed by more bickering between Gordon and Bullock. We got more background for Pengion than we did for anyone else with a visit to his mother but the overall focus of the episode did not come into play until near the end.  This episode also introduced an old villain, The Dollmaker, only through a few henchmen and then beat us over the head with an Easter Egg attached to the plot, which was originally subtle (seemingly)--as an »

10 hours ago

Actor and frequent Joss Whedon collaborator Fran Kranz (Cabin In The Woods, Much Ado About Nothing) recently tweeted (and then deleted) and interesting list of names.  Luckily, the guys over at OhNoTheyDidnt were able to screencap the tweet.  Needless to say, it's Very intriuging. Robbie Baldwin became known as Speedball after his body was bombarded with interdimentional energy during a freak accident.  Gifted with an exterior shell of kinetic energy, Speedball eventually becomes a member of the New Warriors, a team of young heroes including Night Thrasher, Namorita, Nova, Marvel Boy and Firestar.  The team would later be involved in a reality show gone wrong which results in the destruction of a small neighborhood and leads into Marvel's Civil War.  In a fit of guilt for surviving the incident, Baldwin ditches the Speedball moniker and takes up the name Penance as a member of Norman Osborne's Thunderbolts In other speculatory news, »
