14 April 2014 1:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to IGN, we’ve got a new TV spot for Paramount Pictures’ upcoming live-action reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which is packed full of new footage of the brothers in action, as well as our first glimpse of Master Splinter. Take a look below…

“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.”

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ TV Spot #1 Reveals Master Splinter

13 April 2014 8:49 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot hasn’t had an easy time convincing fans to embrace its existence – but a fair number of people (new fans and old) are starting to come around. The first Tmnt teaser trailer revealed a modernized (and Americanized) take on the characters and their origin; but it also revealed character designs that weren’t the complete disaster that many predicted we could get. That was a good sign, which helped balance out fears that Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and director Jonathan Liebesman (Battle Los Angeles) were going to ruin the childhoods of ’90s kids everywhere.

The first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV spot is a lot more brief than the first teaser – but also more revealing, ironically enough. The biggest takeaway is definitely our first fleeting glimpse of the Ninja Turtles’ mutant rat sensei, ...

Get Excited: First 4 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Teaser Posters Grab A Weapon

8 April 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Never in a million years would I have thought the nostalgia for the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” was at an all-time high, especially considering the mediocre original films and cartoon series that wasn’t all that special, but this is when you realize you’re old and not the right demo. Starring Megan Fox in the lead, along with Will Arnett in support, the Jonathan Liebesman directed, Michael Bay-produced “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie will be "interesting" because it’s a Platinum Dunes project. Yep, we're talking about Bay’s cheapo re-do shingle that has yet to make a good film (and has made plenty of pretty terrible reboots like “Friday The 13th,” “Nightmare On Elm Street” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”). Can Liebesman, Dunes and Bay finally break their streak? Well, "Battle: Los Angeles," "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning" and "Wrath of the Titans" weren’t any good either, »

Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub to voice Leonardo and Splinter in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

3 April 2014 10:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With some reshoots currently underway on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ahead of its (supposed) August release, it's now been announced that Johnny Knoxville (Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa) and Tony Shalhoub (Monk) have signed on to lend their voices to Leonardo and Splinter, who were performed on set by Pete Ploszek (Parks and Recreation) and Danny Woodburn (Seinfeld) respectively.

According to Deadline, director Jonathan Leibesman (Wrath of the Titans) and Michael Bay (Transformers: Age of Extinction) were always open to changing the characters' voices, and that the actors were only guaranteed to physically perform the roles in costume.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set for release in North America on August 8th and here in the UK on October 17th and also stars Megan Fox (Transformers) as April O'Neil, Alan Ritchson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) as Raphael, Jeremy Howard (How the Grinch Stole Christmas) as Donatello, Noel Fisher (Battle Los Angeles) as Michaelangelo, »

Will Arnett talks Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

2 April 2014 11:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the first teaser trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles now online [watch it here], more information is starting to creep out about the latest reincarnation of the Heroes in a Half Shell.

Will Arentt (Arrested Development, The Lego Movie) plays cameraman Vernon Fenwick (who appeared in the late 80's cartoon) alongside Megan Fox's April O'Neil. He recently sat down with IGN and gave them a few details on his role and the film itself.

"Originally, in the series, Vern was kind of grouchy and kind of a heel," Arnett said. "We took a little bit of liberty with that attitude. He's still Vern Fenwick, who's a video guy, which really was a thing that helped us to tell the story we wanted to tell in the way we wanted to tell it. It was important that he and April work together, so instead of having him be a heel, he's a little more flippant. »

2 April 2014 1:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday a rumour started doing the rounds suggesting that the upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot was going to be delayed, owing to the fact that around a third of the movie would be reshot under the supervision of producer Michael Bay (Transformers: Age of Extinction). Well, according to the man himself, the rumour is false, with Bay taking to Twitter to shoot down the report...

In Depth Report From Cinema-Con 2014 In Las Vegas

1 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

For movie-fans, the San Diego Comic Con is where you go get your fix of the latest, exclusive clips and celebrity panels every July, but for theatre owners and professionals, Cinema-Con (formerly ShoWest) is the place to be every March, and this year our friend and writer for Zboneman.com and The Independent, Adam Mast, was out there to bring us this massive, no-holds-barred, and frankly, bloody excellent report.

Take it away…

Cinema-Con is a reminder of why I love movies and more importantly, it’s a reminder of what makes the movie going experience so special. Thrown by Nato (The National Association of Theater Owners), Cinema-Con is an annual convention held in Las Vegas and it was designed to show off the latest in movie theater hardware. More importantly though, Cinema-Con is a perfect place for studios (Paramount, Universal, Lionsgate, Disney, Sony, 20th Century Fox, Warner Brothers, etc.) to »

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer

29 March 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing team look at the trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles....

It's a movie that is hated by the fact is it exists and the man behind the cash that funded it. But the trailer for the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles landed online yesterday (watch it here). Was it good? Was it bad? Let's see what our writing team thought....

Anthony Stokes: Looks extremely similar to the Transformers movies, which is no doubt intentional.

Chris Cooper: I am not disgusted. Which considering how I thought I'd feel is quite an achievement! Look, with Bay and Fox involved I'm not expecting magic. But so far it looks Ok. The snow setting is interesting and I like the look of the Brothers working together. Over time I may even become accustomed to their chins and noses (which I think is why I'm not quite connecting »

Totally Tubular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Teaser Trailer!

27 March 2014 9:55 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cowabunga indeed! What’s more surprising than the sudden appearance of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles teaser? The fact that it looks pretty decent. We have done our fair share of Michael Bay-bashing on this site (he’s producing), as well slagging of director Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath Of The Titans, Battle Los Angeles) and star Megan Fox, who plays fearless reporter April O’Neil. But only because they make such utter dross. We don’t want to, we love film after all and want them to make decent movies. It’s just that we were all worried when we heard that this bunch were attached to the new Turtles film and nobody seemed to be shy about saying it.

But we must always let the work speak for itself and in this case, it has to be said, it looks alright. Sure Shredder might be a white dude now, »

First Trailer for Michael Bay Produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Released

27 March 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the upcoming live-action remake of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, mostly because of rumours at one point that they would be neither teenagers or mutants, and would instead be aliens. There was no truth to any of that, but it hasn’t stopped fans from being wary about this take on the iconic characters.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles), the movie uses motion capture to bring Raphael (Alan Ritchson), Michelangelo (Noel Fisher), Donatello (Jeremy Howard) and Leonardo (Pete Ploszek) to life, while Megan Fox will play April O’Neil and William Fichtner will star as the villainous Shredder.

Today, the first trailer for the movie has been released and it gives us a much better idea as to what we should expect from the Michael Bay produced remake. What do you guys think?

Blu-ray, 3D, DVD Release: I, Frankenstein

14 March 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Digital Release Date: May 2, 2014, Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: May 13, 2014

Price: DVD Tba, Blu-ray 3D Combo $39.99

Studio: Lionsgate

I, Frankenstein takes one of movies’ greatest misunderstood horror villains and modernizes him to the likes of Aaron Eckhart (Battle: Los Angeles).

Eckhart’s chiseled face is covered in scars to play Frankenstein, who’s named Adam in this story.

The horror film takes place 200 years after the monster was created. Celestial forces arm Adam with weapons to defeat the demons that are constantly seeking his destruction. Soon he’s dragged into the middle of a war over the fate of humanity and discovers that he has the key that could destroy humankind.

I, Frankenstein is based on The Darkstorm Studios graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, but the movie version didn’t sit well with critics. They felt the film took itself too seriously and gave it a dismal 4% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. »

California Trailing Louisiana, Canada, U.K. in Live-Action Features, Report Finds

6 March 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With live-action feature films fleeing California, the Golden State now trails Louisiana, Canada and the  U.K. in the number of live-action films, jobs and location spending, a new report shows.

“California now ranks a distant fourth place player in all three measures,” the FilmL.A. agency said. “This is clearly not the Hollywood ending that California film pioneers had in mind.”

FilmL.A., which works to improve location shooting details for producers, released the 40-page report Thursday — three weeks after legislation was introduced to expand California’s production incentives.

The report highlighted what it called California’s “significantly diminished” share of global feature film production, noting California’s share of the top 25 live-action films has slid from a “commanding” 64% in 1999 to just 8% last year.

It also pointed out that among successful big-budget films, California-produced animated films outnumber California-produced live-action films by more than 2-to-1.

“Of the 26 sampled live-action films with production budgets over $100 million, »

Hollywood Continues to Flee California at Alarming Rate

5 March 2014 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.

“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls.

In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other states such as New York, which offers $420 million a year in credits for 30% of production costs.

The trend has been mounting for high-profile films set in the Golden State to be filmed almost entirely outside California, due to lucrative tax breaks elsewhere that producers can’t turn down. One »
