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. (more…)
Whether or not you are one of the people complaining about the changes that have been made to your beloved franchise in the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, one thing that we likely can all agree on is that Megan Fox is NOT the most sought after actress in the biz and the choice to make her the new April O’Neil was not Bay’s greatest moment. After having to sit through her “acting” in the first two Transformers movies, i.e. sweating, running, and looking pretty, most audiences have pretty much given up hope on the actress giving them much to chew on. However, at a recent press conference the actress had a mouthful for fans who are already criticizing the iconic turtle reboot, almost sight unseen: (more…)
A yellow jacket, that is. And the lack of April O’Neil in yellow wasn’t the biggest complaint we heard yesterday when we saw the first images of Megan Fox filming for The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That honor goes to the fact it’s Megan Fox AS April O’Neil, followed by her not being a red head/them choosing not to make her a red head.
What will we find to complain about today? Somehow, I feel confidant just the fact it’s Megan Fox will get most of the ire, but maybe some of you are disappointed they’re going with a jacket over the whole yellow jumpsuit.
Personally, my feelings about Fox being cast as O’Neil aside, the jacket’s a good choice. It’s exactly the kind of nod to her most iconic outfit fans appreciate without having to see a movie where the starring actress is wearing, basically, a hazmat suit.
The film’s logo has also been revealed via a snapshot of one of the one set chairs, and it confirms the title will indeed be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Emphasis on the turtles.
What do you think of the logo? Kind of a generic, reptilian look, isn’t it?
No, no yellow jumpsuit, but here’s hoping we’ll see her don April O’Neil’s iconic outfit at some point in the film. From these pictures, courtesy of Screen Crush, there’s not really a whole lot we can learn. It’s Megan Fox, so check one for pretty girl, and she’s dressed for an exercise segment she’s filming for Channel 6 news.
Any thoughts? Other than how much you like Fox in her tight fitting exercise outfit?
Michael Bay and Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to open June 6, 2014.
Nerd Art Dump: Mary Jane and Gwen Fight for Spider-Man, The Kid Version of ‘FireFly’, Famous Characters as Cartoons & MOAR!
Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art. On with the dump!
Can there be just one single moment when these two are alone where they don’t fight over Spider-Man, even a plush version of the wall crawler? Guess not, but at least they know all sleep over fights must be done in your pajamas. *Special Note: If you know who drew this please tell us, we’ll credit them. [Hybrid Waste]
Hit the jump for Super Emo Friends, the Deadpool/Bobba Fett team up and MOAR.
The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s crazy things like Sue Storm showing off her fantastic two, Buffy the Vampire Slayer being staked in the butt, and other weird shit. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis, and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm art lovin’.

If you were, or still are a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles then you’ll know of their mask wearing, hockey stick carry friend Casey Jones. A Foot kicking (literally and figuratively) , bad-ass, vigilante hero. Casey’s awesome, but he’s always fell to the wayside in favor of shell power. Just once, wouldn’t it be nice for Arnold “Casey” Jones to have his own movie?
Well pray no more, because a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle spin-off short-film dedicated to our goon master has arrived. Starring Hilarion Banks, this 35 minute movie delves into origin of one of the turtles most trusted allies .
Created by Polaris Banks, the film kicks all kinds of ass. Kudos to the way that it’s presented and shot, right down to just how cocky Casey is onscreen. It’s a real treat for any TMNT fan.
