When the first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows hit the web, a new surge of hope for the franchise swept the nation. Even some of the most dedicated members of the Micahel-Bay-ruined-my-childhood bandwagon had to admit that the trailer looked pretty promising. While the first film had some white guy in a suit overshadowing the iconic Shredder, this sequel is delivering much more recognizable characters. So far we’ve gotten a peak at Bebop, Rocksteady, Baxter Stockman and Casey Jones. However, there was a lot of initial speculation of whether or not one of the Turtles’ biggest enemies would be included. Would we finally see the live-action debut of Krang? Thankfully, the answer ended up being a resounding “yes,” and we finally got out first look at our favorite talking brain in tonight’s Super Bowl Spot. (more…)

Despite much backlash from the first Michael Bay Turtle Romp, the second movie is hoping to gain a better reputation by serving up a heaping helping of fan service with news that fan favorites Casey Jones and Baxter Stockman will be playing a huge role, but the biggest news has been the inclusion of Bebop and Rocksteady, two punk rockers that get mutated into a rhino and a warthog. But fans have been worried about how the two will look in their mutated forms with some less than stellar CGI being used in the first movie, but now, Casey Jones himself, Steven Amell has leaked a sneak peak over on his facebook page.

UPDATE! The full trailer for the sequel to the 2014 film was released Wednesday night, earlier than expected. (more…)

For most people that remember the first wave of Turtle Power in the late 80s/early 90s, their way into the show was the animated series based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was an eclectic little show that featured ninjas, mutants, robots, aliens, and got a nation of kids permanently addicted to pizza. For those now grown-up kids, the latest live-action Turtles movie may not have done much to encourage fond memories of the franchise they loved so much, but maybe what it lacked were some old familiar faces, at least on the dark side of things. In the age old sequel axiom that more is better, especially when we’re talking about villains, it looks like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is getting another bad guy to the mix. (more…)

TMNT 2

Last year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot divided audiences like no other movie could.  On one side, you had true blue Turtle fans screaming about their childhood being ruined when it was announced that Megan Fox was the new April O’Neil in the Michael Bay produced flick, while on the other, true blue Turtle fans who had the forethought to go into the movie without many expectations, who just wanted a fun TMNT movie, wound up pushing the box office total to over $485mil worldwide.  With a haul like that, it was no surprise that Paramount announced a sequel days after the release of the film.  Production of the sequel is well underway and it looks like a cameo in the flick will please both sides of that Great Divide.  Judith Hoag, the original live action April O’Neil, will be appearing in the new Ninja Turtles film.

It has been announced that Jonathan Liebsman – although sounding enthused about the prospect of future entries in the series in the past – will not be returning to direct the second installment of the recently rebooted franchise Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now, Variety has reported that Earth to Echo helmer David Green will now taking over the franchise to direct 2016s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Green is know to most for his family-friendly, found-footage hit film Earth to Echo (…best described as a mix between E.T. and The Goonies), which was filmed on a mere budget of $13 million going on to gross an impressive $45 million worldwide for Relativity Media (that’s a nice return right there!).

After all of the negative reviews and general smack talking, moviegoers proved Megan Fox right this past weekend by making Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the #1 movie in America.  Some people loved it, some people hated it, others loved to hate it, but no matter how it adds up, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 (The Secret Of Megan Fox’s Career?) is on the way.  The June 3, 2016, release is sure to draw more ire from the online community that seems determined to chip away at producer Michael Bay’s career bit by bit, but for those with an open mind, the question that remains is where the sequel could go without rehashing material we have already seen throughout 5 motion pictures and several television series’.  Looks like we may have an answer.
