The new International trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction is out featuring an introduction by Mark Wahlberg. Don’t be confused by Wahlberg calling the movie Transformers: Lost Age, that’s the title the film will go by in Japan, where this trailer is targeted. (more…)
With just over two months to go until the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction (AKA: Trans4mers), it strikes us to think just how much we don’t know about the upcoming sequel to 2007′s Transformers. But now it looks like the production is trying to close that knowledge gap by promoting the heck out of the film, which is both a continuation of the Transformers saga from the previous three films, and a launching pad for a brand new trilogy of films with a new cast, new story line and everything. So what’s in store? Franchise filmmaker and originator of the Bay-hem aesthetic, Michael Bay, recently shared some thoughts… (more…)
The one burning question I wanted answered last week when the news broke that Johnny Knoxville and Tony Schaloub would be taking over as the voices of Leonardo and Splinter in Michael Bay‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot was, “Did the actors, Pete Plozek and Danny Woodburn, know they would only be doing the physical performance?” Now we know. (more…)
The marketing machine for the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot rolls on, with four posters hitting the web today. They’re simple and evocative; featuring the weapons that each reptilian ninja wields in the face of Shredder’s faceless onslaught. Those looking some super weird visual slash fic may want to move on, as I only used that headline as a means to lure in the bigger weirdos who read NB on a daily basis. I’m like the Chris Hansen of comic book movie news. Have a seat…and let’s talk about your bizarre need to see green martial arts experts violate each others’ orifices.
Looks like Michael Bay has pulled a “James Earl Jones” by casting Johnny Knoxville and Tony Schaloub to voice Leonardo and Splinter in the upcoming reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. What other character voices might be swapped? (more…)
Michael Bay‘s reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise marches on, amidst unfounded rumors of the release date being pushed back and fan Internet backlash over the look of the turtles from the first trailer. This week we’ve got Megan Fox and Will Arnett back on set for some re-shoots and one fan’s TMNT fix that is blowing up the Internet. (more…)
This week, one of the biggest geek stories has been the release of the first full-length look at the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. For whatever reason, thirty and forty-year-olds began weeping about the “molestation of their childhood” (Jesus guys…), while those of us who can recognize the detriments of over-indulging in nostalgia simply shrugged and went about our day. Ignoring the infallible maxim “don’t read the comments”, the screenwriter of the latest take on everybody’s favorite pizza-chomping reptilian ninjas is speaking out about Bay & Co.’s “vision” for the upcoming film.
For the past year or more, fans of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise have been on an emotional rollercoaster. The Michael Bay backed reboot of the Heroes In A Half Shell has been met with a range of emotions from cautious optimism to blind nerd rage (ok, it is mostly the latter.) With the first trailer hitting the Internet today we should finally have the final answer on what this new iteration of TMNT will be, right?
Well, Will Arnett (who plays the wise cracking camera man to Megan Fox‘s April O’Neil) stopped by the TODAY show to give us a first look at the movies trailer. Oh, and he brought them pizza because prop comedy is still a valid art form. (more…)
If there’s a more controversial movie coming out this year for the nerd set than the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you probably don’t want to know about it. And here’s something else you probably don’t want to know about, the trailer description for the new TMNT movie, AKA: “Bay-Turtles.” If you’re holding on for any hope that the stuff you’ve heard about the movie so far is a red herring, sorry, it might be worse than you think. The new trailer was screened at Cinema Con in Las Vegas, the annual convention of theater owners, and, well, no one was amused. (more…)
Entertainment Tonight has posted a teaser for Michael Bay‘s latest Transformers: Age of Extinction online. It’s hard to tell which is more annoying, the short length, or all that ET over-talk. Don’t you just love it when you can tell that the person talking has no clue what the hell they are talking about and faking the hell out of being excited about it. (more…)
