- 04-14-14Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


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…)

Danny Woodburn Not Happy Being Replaced by Tony Shaloub as Splinter’s Voice

- 04-09-14Comics, Film Posted by Mark Poynter
Last week, Danny Woodburn, who is best known for his roles in Seinfeld and Watchmen, was shocked to learn that he had been replaced as the voice of ‘Master Splinter’ in the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He isn’t taking the news lying down, and has responded, “my legal team is looking into it.” While it sounds interesting, it doesn’t seem as though the actor has a leg to stand on.

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.

- 03-28-14Film Posted by Jacob Knight


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.

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…)

- 03-25-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


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…)
