Ving Rhames had only a cameo in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, but he’s back for real in the fifth film in the series. Christopher McQuarrie is directing this new episode, which once again stars Tom Cruise and also finds Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg returning to the Impossible Mission Force. Given the manner of the announcement of Rhames being back with the IMF, we can probably expect him to have more to do in this fifth film. Read More »
The big-screen revival of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has done well enough to warrant a sequel. And so TMNT 2 (or whatever the title will be) is already greenlit for a 2016 release. The first film didn’t feature many fan-favorite elements from various previous Turtle incarnations, and it changed some of the stuff that was included. So what can we expect in the sequel? Director Jonathan Liebesman and producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form have been talking, and they suggest there’s a chance that the TMNT sequel characters could include some or all of the following: Krang, Casey Jones, and Bebop and Rocksteady.
Read quotes on all that below, and see some concept art for Turtle designs that didn’t make the cut for this first film. Read More »

Michael Bay is fairly regularly a punchline among film fans but that never matters. Movie after movie, bad review after bad review, Bay turns in massive entertainment that the world gobbles up with delight. This summer alone, he took Transformers: Age of Extinction to over $1 billion in global box office and produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which enjoyed a #1 opening weekend. A sequel has already been greenlit. Both films were thrashed by critics, but audiences showed up en masse. Love him or hate him, Michael Bay has the touch.
It’s a touch producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura told us he hopes would continue in the upcoming Transformers 5. However, in a new interview, Bay puts that in doubt. The director himself said he plans to pass the Transformers franchise to a new director so he can concentrate on new things. What he didn’t say was when that would happen. So will Michael Bay direct Transformers 5? Read more below. Read More »
Buzz be dammed, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ruled the box office this weekend. The reboot earned an estimated $65 million and Paramount quickly jumped into action. Sunday morning, the studio greenlit the sequel and already set a release date: June 3, 2016.

We’ve had a long time to wonder what a Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film would look like. Now that the film is in theaters we can see the results: pumped-up, violent, a bit over-sexualized, and simple but not exactly faithful to either the early comics stories, or the animation that made the turtles insanely popular.
Directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans), the film stars Megan Fox and Will Arnett as humans who end up in the company of four giant mutated humanoid turtles. The cast also features Pete Ploszek as Leonardo (voiced by Johnny Knoxville), Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, and Jeremy Howard as Donatello.
We’ve reviewed the film in print and podcast. Now that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is out, we want to know what you think. Spoilers are encouraged in the open comment thread below. Read More »

In my recent review of Jonathan Liebesman‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I said the following:
There’s one fantastic scene of the four Turtles. Together in an elevator, they start beat-boxing. It’s dumb, but also funny and charming. That’s what this movie is missing.
And I’d like to think Paramount listened to me, because that scene is now online. It’s the perfect juxtaposition of what’s right, and what’s wrong with the film. Watch the best scene in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie below. Read More »
