There are a lot of complaints and disappointment that seem to grow from Hollywood reboots of classic film and TV franchises. When there was news there was going to be another go at our pizza chewing, Cowabunga spouting, friends from the sewers questions were raised. When it was revealed that Megan Fox was lined up to play April, a collective groan was expelled from the entire Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan base. All this being said, and despite what the fan boys say, the first film was arguably a success. It was funny, action packed and had everything that we would expect from a contemporary take on the Ninja Turtles. The film enjoyed so much success that number two in the live action franchise, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, was given the green light and has now had its final full trailer released.

The second trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie is out and it couldn’t ignore Batman’s past anymore than all the other Batman movies in the past have. In other words, prepare to watch LEGO Batman agonize over his parents death once again. Just like he did in 1966,1989, 1992, 1995, 1997, 2005, 2008, 2012, and 2016. Will Arnett is going to be the Batman to end all Batmen… except for Adam West, no one trumps Adam West. (more…)
Who knew Batman could beat box like that? We all knew he could box, and loved to beat up criminals, but would he dare to put the two together so musically? Will Arnett is back as everyone’s favorite caped crusader in LEGO block form to promote The LEGO Batman Movie. Arnett is joined by a fantastic voice cast that includes Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred, Michael Cera as Robin, Zach Galifianakis as The Joker, and Mariah Carey as Mayor Marion Grange. It looks to be a whole lot of fun and perhaps just the touch of levity we’ll all need after all the seriousness of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. (more…)
Whatever happened to Michael Cera? He used to appear in two or three movies a year, but aside from the fourth season of Arrested Development and a memorable appearance in This is the End, he seems to have all but disappeared from the landscape. Appropriately enough, Cera’s next big role will only require his voice and not his actual person, and it will require him to team-up again with his Arrested Development uncle Will Arnett. What weird sort of project brings these two Canadian actors together again? Why it’s the LEGO Movie spin-off The LEGO Batman Movie, and Cera will play the Boy Wonder to Arnett’s Caped Crusader.

Warm up your best Batman Na-na-na-na-na-na voice because that Lego Batman spinoff movie isn’t just going to feature The Lego Movie Batman voiced by Will Arnett that everyone went head over heals for. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the two in charge of the Batman Lego spinoff have big plans for our favorite brick caped crusader. How big? (more…)
While he may only “work in black and sometimes very, very dark grey,” the powers that be over at Warner Bros. want to capitalize on the Lego Batman’s incredible popularity in the LEGO Movie. Everyone loved that crazy guy, and not in the gritty, dark as all get out Batman we’ve known in comics and the big screen. It was more like Adam West and Christian Bale had a love child that sounded a hell of a lot like Will Arnett. Wanna know more details? (more…)
As we posted earlier today, there was one more TMNT character poster to reveal before the second TMNT trailer would be released. Looks like the Tweets needed to unlock both were quickly reached. Click through to check out both. (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…)
