Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows Review: Finally, A Good Tmnt Movie!

7 June 2016 3:44 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

It's never been easy being a Turtle fan. After an awful first, but surprisingly financially successful, outing in 2014's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Paramount and Nickelodeon went back to the drawing board, finding a new director in Dave Green (Earth to Echo), and bringing on some new cast members, and for the first time since the 1990 film, fans have been given what boils down to the best Tmnt movie to date, in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.

The story picks up a few years after the 2014 movie. The turtles: Leo, Raph, Donnie, and Mikey are still protecting New York -- but doing so in secret. Everything they do, up to and including taking in a Knicks game, is done from the shadows. When a brilliant physicist named Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) begins making waves with his company T.C.R.I., April O'Neal (Megan Fox) investigates and »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows opens to $69 million

6 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s Turtle Power once again as the Heroes in a Half-Shell have topped the Us box office, but it’s not pizzas all round.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows [read our reviews here, here and here] opened against romance flick Me Before You and comedy Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping to earn an estimated $35 million, knocking X-Men: Apocalypse from the top spot. The bad news however is that this is a 46% drop-off from 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which opened to $65.5 million. Worse still, the sequel’s budget had been increased by $10 million, so this is not the news Paramount would have hoped for. In terms of domestic totals, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is looking to make $90-$100 million, a huge drop off from its predecessor.

Worldwide, the movie opened in 40 markets and earned around $34 million with the UK delivering the highest revenue. That brings the Turtles total to $69 million. »

Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael return to cinemas this summer to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After supervillain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.

Original April O'Neil Judith Hoag Cut From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows

3 June 2016 4:30 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Set photos during Teenage Mutant Ninja's Turtles: Out of the Shadows' on location shoot in NYC revealed that Megan Fox's April O'Neil would  share screen time with the original April O'Neil from the 1990 live-action film, Judith Hoag.  Details on Hoag's role were never revealed but cryptic tweets  last May pretty much confirmed Hoag's cameo and encounter with the Turtles.  Perhaps her character will show up in deleted scenes or an extended cut?   Teenage Mutant Ninja's Turtles: Out of the Shadows is expected to narrowly edge out X-Men: Apocalypse for the #1 spot at the domestic box office this weekend but is currently tracking to gross only half of the 2014 film's $65 million weekend haul. Starring Megan Fox, Stephen Amell, Johnny Knoxville, Tony Shalhoub, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Brian Tee, Will Arnett, Gary Anthony Williams, and WWE Superstar Sheamus, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows hits Us theaters today. »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows – Review

2 June 2016 8:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The “heroes in a half-shell” have repeatedly been reintroduced for almost three decades. Even for fans, it’s hard to keep track of all the different comic series, movies, cartoons, live-action shows, and action figure lines. Michael Bay and his team clearly noticed the success of the Nickelodeon cartoon that began in 2012 (and continues to be amazing) and seemed to think that they could carry over that popularity into a new live-action film series. And so the turtles were born again for the big-screen two years ago. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) introduced us to the next incarnation of our favorite crime-fighting turtle team, even if we didn’t exactly spend as much time with the brothers as we do with the bodacious brunette April O’Neil (that’s at least how Michelangelo would describe her). Never did we really just get a scene with the brothers outside of April’s »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows Gets A Cool New IMAX Poster

IMAX has released a new poster for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows, and it features the heroes in a half shell alongside human allies Casey Jones and April O’Neil.

Despite receiving a mixed response in 2014, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles grossed just shy of $500 million worldwide, so the fact that we’re getting this sequel is hardly a surprise. However, adding so many fan-favourite characters and hopefully an acknowledgement of what didn’t work in the first instalment will with any luck go some way in ensuring that the follow-up fares a little better.

Based on the reviews for this one so far, it is a success in that respect, thought still not necessarily what you might call a “good” movie. Of course, like the Transformers franchise for example, this isn’t the kind »

Film Review: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’

2 June 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The heroes in a half shell return for more halfhearted fun in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.” Every bit as noisy, brain-numbing and lowbrow as its predecessor, the Michael Bay production never strays from basic blockbuster formula. It’s fast food entertainment destined for a short run atop the box office charts and an even shorter lifespan in the pop culture zeitgeist.

Although the franchise has remained active in animation and video games through the years, the heroic quartet named after famed Renaissance painters — Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo — went dormant in live action films for two decades, until 2014’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” resurrected the phenomenon. At the time, some longtime fans took issue with reinventing the turtles as motion capture-animated heroes, especially in the context of a sleek, soulless, steel-crushing action extravaganza à la Bay’s “Transformers” productions. But worldwide audiences didn’t seem to mind one bit, »

Review: A new director brings some welcome energy and charm to 'Turtles' sequel

1 June 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Dave Green’s first film, Earth To Echo, had some mighty familiar DNA. You could tell that he was a fan of ‘80s Amblin’ films and that he’d absorbed the lessons of the film on a nearly molecular level like many of the film nerd kids who grew up on those movies. More than anything, he got the relationships between the kids right in that film, and it appears he carried that skill set over to a franchise that I have very little personal fondness for, resulting in what may well be the most consistently fun live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie ever made. It’s easy to dismiss someone’s fondness for something as pure nostalgia, but it’s also reductive and, in many cases, not why someone loves something. I may not personally be a Turtles fan, but I know enough of them (and have fathered a »

Exclusive: Director Dave Green & Producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form Talk 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows'

1 June 2016 9:42 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

While more than a fair number of filmgoers were skeptical of the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, it managed to make a believer out of most of them. The film embraced the goofy and fun tone of the cartoon series fans grew up with.

This time around, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows, the filmmakers seem to have much more of the fans' good faith, which is obviously a greater starting point for any flick.

Returning to produce the sequel are Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, and stepping into the franchise at the helm is Earth To Echo director Dave Green in his second feature film.

Lrm had a chance to sit down with these three and talk about the tone of Turtles 2, the challenges, and the memorable villains they brought into the movie.

Lrm: What I enjoyed about the film is that it's for a broader audience. »

Early Reviews For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows Reveal A “Bright And Brainless” Sequel

31 May 2016 8:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the eve of its theatrical bow, early reviews for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows have begun pouring online, painting Paramount’s CG-laden actioner as a “bright and brainless” sequel.

Depending on your own expectations going into Tmnt 2, that general critical consensus will either be a disappointing surprise or exactly what you’ve come to expect from the studio’s brash franchise.

Here’s a selection of those reviews (via Cbm) which, if the 2014 original is anything to go by, won’t have much bearing on the movie’s performance at the box office this coming weekend.

Movie Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016)

31 May 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, 2016.

Directed by Dave Green.

Starring Megan Fox, Stephen Amell, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, Noel FisherTyler Perry, Brian Tee, Gary Anthony Williams, Stephen FarrellyBrad GarrettAlessandra Ambrosio and Laura Linney.

Synopsis:

The Turtles return to save the city from a dangerous threat.

Teenage Mutant Teenage Turtles: Out of the Shadows – or should that be The Secret of the Ooze: Reloaded? The sequel to 2013’s surprisingly huge Turtles reboot has more in common with the 1990’s sequel than its own predecessor, given that many plot points and strands are re-engineered for this second go around with our favourite heroes in a half-shell Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo. And as with the first Michael Bay-produced film, it’s an extravaganza of colour, frenetic action and endless slow-motion shots. So more of the same really, but bizarrely it’s actually better. »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows: Stephen Amell Talks Casey Jones Origins Story

Ready to pounce Out of the Shadows and into theaters this coming Friday, June 3, Paramount’s marketing parade for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is gradually beginning to pull into the station – but not before Stephen Amell can tease the introduction of a Casey Joins origins story.

Talking to Screen Rant ahead of the sequel’s imminent arrival, Amell covered all bases relating to his hockey-masked vigilante and Tmnt 2 in general – from hairstyles to blockbuster action sequences, it’s all there – and here the Arrow stalwart offers more insight into how the follow-up will introduce his character.

I think what we got to do with this Casey Jones is we got to give him a little bit of an origin story. He’s a corrections officer. That explains a lot of why he looks »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows movie review: shell schlock

30 May 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Leaden and witless, though it obviously believes there is humor in its loud, chaotic juvenility. It would be an insult to cartoons to call this cartoonish. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Apparently the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, when they debuted way back in the 1980s, were intended as a parody of superhero comics. I picked up this tidbit from the Tmnt wikipedia page. I did not absorb it through some sort of cinematic osmosis while watching the new Tmnt movie, Out of the Shadows. That would have been impossible. Whatever the truth of the long-ago comic-book Turtles, there is absolutely nothing that marks them as satirical here. (This may also be true of the 2014 movie that rebooted this franchise, but I have so far managed to avoid that one. If only that had »

BeBop and Rocksteady Hijack New Ninja Turtles 2 Trailer

One of the Los Angeles Clippers takes a mean tumble on the court while playing against the New York Knicks in the latest trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. And it's all due to the brothers eating pizza up in the rafters. But that's not the highlight of this latest sneak peek at the upcoming sequel. In theaters next weekend, the real scene stealers of Tmnt 2 prove to be BeBop and Rocksteady.

After some shenanigans had by the Turtles, this mutant warthog and rhino show up to literally hijack the trailer. And it proves that these two mean business. The pair start out as NYC street thugs but are transformed forever by the diabolical Baxter Stockman.
