Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

4 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

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. Director Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, »

Release Dates Revealed for Holiday Horror Comedy ‘Krampus’ and Supernatural Thriller ‘Spectral’

19 August 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Those who are naughty are going to get something a lot worse than coal in Michael Dougherty’s Krampus, while a Special Ops team engages supernatural forces in Spectral. This pagan demon and ghostly threat will officially see the big screen, as Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures have just announced the release dates for both films.

According to Box Office Mojo, Krampus will come out in theaters on November 25th, 2015, while Spectral will see the silver screen in 3D on August 12th, 2016.

We reported in May that Legendary Pictures has signed Michael Dougherty to co-write and direct Krampus, a Christmas horror comedy co-written by Todd Casey and Zach Shields: “Based on an ancient legend about a pagan demon who punishes the wicked, Krampus is similar in style to Dougherty’s cult hit Trick R’ Treat.”

This is the second Krampus-based Christmas horror movie to begin development as of late, »

5 Reasons ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is the Summer’s Best Guilty Pleasure

10 August 2014 10:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie is such a ridiculous guilty pleasure it will make even non-fans of the animated TV series cheer “Cowabunga.” Many groupies were wary about this film reboot when it was first announced, but all the bad buzz turned out to be bogus. Director Jonathan Liebesman (“Battle: Los Angeles”) and producer Michael Bay have successfully updated the Turtles to 2014. The joke-cracking crime fighters still love pizza, while also listening to Gwen Stefani and watching “Lost.” And they look better than they ever have, thanks to the motion capture technology used to bring them to life.

Film Review: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Here are five reasons why “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is one of the best surprises of the summer.

1. The Turtles are still campy. It’s not easy to reimagine a children’s property — think “Scooby Doo,” “Alvin and the Chipmunks,” “The Adventures of Rocky »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 announced; first movie opens to $93.4 million

10 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We reported on Wednesday the opening night for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could mean that its success will de-throne Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Well, the weekend numbers are in (we’ll have the full report up tomorrow) and the Michael Bay produced live-action reboot has pulled in a huge $65 million domestic, not only knocking James Gunn’s space opera from the number one spot, but also leading to Paramount announcing a sequel.

Read our ★★ review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles here.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set for release on June 3rd 2016 and will again be produced by Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes. No word yet on whether Jonathan Liebsman will return to direct. It will open the same weekend as Paramount’s own Sausage Party and a week before X-Men: Apocalypse and Disney’s Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.

Weekend Box Office: Turtles Tops Guardians

10 August 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The latest revival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opened strongly this weekend at the North American box office. The action flick displaced last weekend’s number one champ Guardians of the Galaxy, which held its ground with a solid second place showing. Warner’s Into the Storm and Disney’s The Hundred-Foot Journey also opened to okay numbers while Step Up: All In proved to have two left feet. Thanks to the arrival of Turtles and the strong second weekend of Guardians, the box office had its second weekend of increased business over totals from not only 2013 (+23%), but also 2012 (+31%).

There have, according to IMDb, been three animated television series, one live action film series that ran from 1990-1993 and an CG-animated reboot from 2007 that preceded the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Despite the endless reincarnations in multiple media formats, it appears that the heroes in a half-shell haven’t lost their appeal. »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could topple Guardians of the Galaxy after a great opening night

8 August 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may be one of the most “hated-on” movies released this year (or any year for that matter), but it looks like the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could topple Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy after a terrific opening night.

The movie played in just over 2,500 theatres and earned an impressive $4.1 million on its opening night, which is a better number than Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Disney’s Maleficent and Lucy.

Looking at previous trends, industry experts feel that this uptake could mean that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be the number one movie over the weekend, knocking Guardians of the Galaxy from its throne. While the last three Marvel movies have seen a drop of around 60%, the James Gunn directed sci-fi epic has had a lot of positive word-of-mouth and big weekday numbers, so it may only drop 40%. It could be a close battle. »

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Review: Ranking the Ridiculousness

8 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Mutant turtles living in New York City sewers and fighting crime isn't exactly what you'd call a "realistic" premise, and really, the inherent goofiness has always been part of the charm for a property that's spawned three animated series, multiple movies, and countless toy lines. But for some reason, the new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie, produced by Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Liebesman, still spends an inordinately large amount of runtime pointing out that, yes, they know how ridiculous this all must sound.

The basic plot of the new reboot, as laid out in a comic book-style prologue, sees New York in the grips of a major crime wave thanks to the Foot Clan, now a paramilitary force led by Shredder (Tohoru Masamune). And the only ones who can stop them are our teenage heroes, who've been preparing for years to assume their rightful place as the city's »

‘Final’ trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

8 August 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you thought yesterday’s Ultimate Cowabunga trailer would mark the end of Paramount Pictures’ marketing for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, then think again.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review

6 August 2014 9:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If the franchise’s lifespan at all mirrors that of its reptilian real world counterpart, then we’re probably just exiting the throes of puberty for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. 30 years since the heroes on the half shell first surfaced, the comic turned merchandising fixture has seen many iterations over the years, surviving off the endlessly reproducible chemistry and attitude of its hyperactive stars. Like many pop culture touchstones, each “Turtles” outing provides something of a bellwether for the filmmaking environment it’s born into. When it was announced that Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes would be responsible for this latest reboot, with Bay producing, many felt justified to fear the worst.

Unsurprisingly, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is not a very good movie, or even a half good one. Its dedication to nostalgia necessitates a story that plays like a big budget TV pilot, coasting by on the »

Considering Megan Fox’s harsh words for any critics of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot at a press conference this past weekend, it’s probably not the best time for Paramount Pictures to release a ‘Meet April O’Neil’ featurette for the film, but they have, and we’ve got it for you below…

Not A Set Visit: A 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Preview

4 August 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

And when I walk up in the building/everybody's hands go Up!....And they stay there!

It’s the week of release and I still don’t feel like I have a bead on the new live-action iteration of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But that's okay.

I’ve been following the development of this movie since it seemed like an immediate reality at a public showing of the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live action film in New York celebrating a Turtles anniversary. The creators were on hand and everyone was excited to hear the Turtles were going to interact with real things again after a hibernation period in the cartoon space (which gave us some worthwhile entries for the Turtle fan - TV’s Turtles Forever and cinema’s CGI Tmnt).

Then, there was the whole “these Turtles are Aliens” debacle that at first looked like producer Michael Bay misunderstanding the property then, »

Film Review: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’

3 August 2014 11:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If nothing else, Paramount’s attempt at a bigscreen “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot should make for a fascinating case study in the power of fan outrage. Following the online uproar over their proposed deviations from the original material, among them a shortened title (“Ninja Turtles”) and a bizarre alien-planet backstory, producer Michael Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman have delivered a back-to-basics origin saga that is neither a particularly good movie nor the pop-cultural travesty that some were dreading. Much slicker-looking but less endearing than its ’90s live-action predecessors, the film manifests all the usual attributes of a Bay production — chaotic action, crass side jokes, visual-effects overkill, Megan Fox — but is nowhere near “Transformers”-level off-putting. It should be a pretty easy shell to audiences worldwide.

Conceived in the ’80s as a good-natured spoof of superhero mythologies by comicbook artists Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman, those crime-fighting chelonians known as Leonardo, »
