Edge Of Tomorrow: a case of mishandled marketing?

22 October 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sci-fi action thriller Edge Of Tomorrow sagged at the box office, despite glowing reviews. Was its marketing to blame, Ryan wonders...

Looking back over Edge Of Tomorrow’s brief history, and it seems clear that it was a production with something of an identity crisis. Adapted from a Japanese story called All You Need Is Kill, the movie went by that name right up until the summer of 2013, when Warner Bros abruptly changed the title to Edge Of Tomorrow.

Then, when Edge Of Tomorrow got its home release a couple of weeks ago, it seemed to have been given another name change. On its DVD and Blu-ray box, the tagline Live. Die. Repeat, is far more prominent than Edge Of Tomorrow’s title - the movie’s even listed in some online marketplaces as Live Die Repeat: Edge Of Tomorrow.

It’s the latest curious development in the life of »

Sponsored Video: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hit The Big Screen

13 October 2014 2:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

With five TV series, four movies and countless comics, odds are that anyone under the age of thirty has grown up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now it’s time to revisit the gang with a new take courtesy of director Jonathan Liebesman (Battle Los Angeles) and producer Michael Bay (Transformers), with previews from October 11th and opening across the UK on October 17th.

The new film sees all the things you loved from the earlier versions of the heroes – Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael of course return under the mentorship of Splinter to take on the Foot Clan and its leader Shredder – but in a new reimagining. Probing into their origins, the film looks set to be the start of an epic new chapter for the Turtles, but never loses sight of what makes the series work in the first place – the humour. Expect laughs galore as well as thrilling action. »

Film Review: ‘Monsters: Dark Continent’

12 October 2014 7:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The slippery, multi-tentacled creatures seen in Gareth Edwards’ “Monsters” have adapted to Earth’s harshest environments, migrating from their Central American infected zone to other parts of the planet in “Monsters: Dark Continent.” Not so much a sequel as another stultifying character drama set in a world overrun by aliens, this 10-years-later spinoff switches directors and genres, as first-timer Tom Green (building on experience from British TV’s “Misfits” and “Blackout”) helms a taxingly over-earnest war movie set in an unspecified Middle Eastern country, where American soldiers deal with insurgents while the menacing MTRs (as they’re now called) lumber about in the background.

Though the human characters from “Monsters” are long gone and only a modified version of the creatures remain, Green’s film should benefit from brand recognition worldwide, sparking international sales and audience curiosity for a film that otherwise wouldn’t much interest moviegoers.

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.

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 »

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

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.

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 »
