As we await the oncoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" flick from Michael Bay, let us all be pacified by a hilarious parody that feeds your ambitious need for amphibious humor. From The Pet Collective, it's the "Teenage Mutant Average Turtles," heroes in a half-shell who are, you know, real turtles. Four legs, slow speed, hard shells and all, these superheroes couldn't be more sedentary. Get More »
A Michael Bay-produced live-action "Ninja Turtles" movie is coming into actualized reality, and there's nothing we can do to stop it short of a PETA representative finding out actual turtles are being molested on-set.
Given that, the film's cast is shaping up, with a new addition in the form of our favorite "Arrested Development" magician, Will Arnett, who The Hollywood Reporter says is signed for an unspecified lead role in Paramount's big budget "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." Get More »
They're mean, they're green — and according to Deadline, they're almost totally anonymous, as four relative unknowns have just been cast to play Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo and Leonardo in the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot.
But since "Ninja Turtles" is going to be an "Avatar"-style motion capture CGI extravaganza, does it even matter who plays the turtles?
Fans of "The Hobbit's" motion capture icon Andy Serkis would, of course, argue that the people behind the animation are very important. So for those folks, here's a rundown of the turtles: Alan Ritchson (left), who will be playing Gloss in the upcoming blockbuster "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," is set to portray Raphael, while "The Twilight Saga" bit player Noel Fisher will suit up as Michelangelo. "Parks and Recreation" guest star Pete Ploszek will be Leonardo and newcomer Jeremy Howard will be playing Donatello. Get More »
Despite releasing "Pain & Gain" later this year, producer Michael Bay has so far inflicted much pain and very little gain upon hapless "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" fans.
First the uproar over the turtles being aliens, then word that the script was shite, followed by interminable delays, and now The Hollywood Reporter says the new live-action/CGI hybrid film has been delayed yet again to June 6, 2014. Get More »
So, it's not weird that Hollywood wants to revive this tried-and-true "Turtles" franchise with a live-action reboot. And it's not weird that director Michael Bay wants a hot piece of… actress… to play the female lead. It is weird, however, that he would pick for that role a star with whom he had a very public, very aggressive feud just a short while ago. Yes, we're talking about new mama Megan Fox.
That's right, Fox will play the iconic April O'Neil in the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie, Ropes of Silicon reports.
Fox sizzled her way across the screen in Bay's "Transformers" and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." But then something happened—and by something we mean she compared the director to Adolph Hitler, saying he was "a nightmare to work for" and that he had "no social skills at all." Bay blasted back, accusing Fox of being "in a different world… on her BlackBerry" and replacing her with Rosie Huntington-Whitely for "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." Get More »
No, that's not a misprint: It appears that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, those heroes on a half-shell of yesteryear, are coming to a theater near you next year. According to a tweet from Production Weekly, production on the latest reboot of the pizza-loving duuuuuuudes' saga will begin sooner than you may expect: "Principle photography on 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' is scheduled to begin this April in New York."

Who knew that people still felt so strongly about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, other than Vanilla Ice?
Michael Bay tried to tell the Internerds to chill the eff out earlier this week after news broke that he was planning a reboot where our pizza-snarfing stars are aliens rather than little turtles that encountered some gnarly goo that transformed them. Now Peter Laird, who created the comic book stars along with writer/artist Kevin Eastman, has spoken up on Bay's behalf. Get More »
Fans of the hit comic book/cartoon/movie series "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" just about had a collective coronary yesterday when director Michael Bay announced that he was working on a new version of the story that would recast the four crimefighting heroes as aliens. WTF, said the planet Earth.
But don't worry, because Bay has heard your concerns and complaints — and after careful consideration of your feelings and a thorough review of the situation, he has posted a new message on his official forums asking you to please chill out. Get More »
With Saint Patrick's Day upon us, we're excited to reflect on the many contributions of the Irish people. And we totally plan on reading "How the Irish Saved Civilization," which we're guessing is about how the Irish stopped a killer comet from crashing into the Earth.
But in the meantime, we're honoring the great people of Ireland (while reaffirming our ceaseless commitment to environmentalism) by listing our nine favorite movie characters who keep it green all year long, not just when it's festively fashionable.
