The phrase “epic fail” may not be as fashionable as it once was, but sometimes it really is the only way to express just how horribly something has gone wrong. Case in point: Can you come up with a better way to describe a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster that combines exploding building imagery and a 9/11 release date? Yeah, didn’t think so.
Gawk at the controversial Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 9/11 poster the jump.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens in theaters very soon, but Paramount still wanted to prove to Comic-Con that after years and years of controversy, they’ve made a winner. According to co-creator Kevin Eastman, the movie is “absolutely fantastic” and to prove it the producers (Andrew Form and Brad Fuller), director (Jonathan Liebsman) and stars (Megan Fox and Will Arnett) showed up to present not one, but two extended clips from the film. Each one was a big action sequence that gave a much better idea than the trailers of the look, attitude and tone of the movie, and the Turtles themselves. Below, read about the two Ninja Turtles scenes with some impressions. Read More »
During the Paramount Pictures panel at Comic Con, Tom Kenny, the voice of Spongebob Squarepants, shared the first look at the new film SpongeBob: Sponge Out of Water. I haven’t really been paying attention because I’ve never really been interested in SpongeBob, but apparently the new movie is live action Spongebob Squarepants movie. And by that I mean as live-action as a Smurfs or Alvin and the Chipmunks films (live action location and human characters with computer animated CG Spongebob and friends).
Apparently Spongebob and friends escape the pineapple under the sea and their animated sea city of Bikini Bottom and enter the human world. The movie starts in the usual animated world but the characters “transform to computer graphic superheroes to fight off a menace endangering beloved Bikini Bottom.”
The footage that was premiered in Hall H can only be described as weird. I’m not sure anyone was into it, but almost everyone was left with a look on their face which could be read only as “what the hell was that”. Wanna see what a live-action/CG animated hybrid spongebob squarepants movie looks like? Hit the jump to see the first SpongeBob: Sponge Out of Water photo.

We’ve told you about the Comic Con debut of Matthew McConaughey and Christopher Nolan, who took the stage in Hall H today to discuss their upcoming film Interstellar. While seeing Nolan field a few questions was a treat, the two also brought along a new Interstellar trailer.

Paramount brought two Comic Con newbies to Hall H today: Matthew McConaughey and Christopher Nolan, and the pair also brought along a new trailer for their upcoming film Interstellar. The film explores an Earth which has been decimated by climate change, and from which a small group adventures out into the universe, in search of answers to our problems.
The elements were all introduced in stages: the moderator, Entertainment Weekly editor Matt Bean, brought McConaughey out. The actor talked about his first conversations with Nolan, and described his own character before shying away from telling more about the movie. He introduced the director, who spoke for a few minutes and answered questions from the moderator. Finally, Nolan introduced the new trailer for the film. (Read about that here.) Below, you’ll find the meat of the conversation between the three men.

Ever since the release of the popular ’90s cartoon, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were characterized as party guys. They were a wild bunch of teenagers who loved pizza and music, who just happened to be both ninjas and turtles. In 1991, the group was forever linked to pop rap thanks to Vanilla Ice. At the climax of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, then super-popular rapper was featured with a song called “Ninja Rap.” Almost 25 years later, the song endures as a guilty pleasure and a window into a very specific moment in pop culture.
So it makes perfect sense (maybe? sort of?) that the filmmakers want their very own rap anthem for the new, rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That song is now out. It’s called “Shell Shocked” and its by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign featuring Kill The Noise & Madsonik. Does it reach the status of “Ninja Rap?” Listen to the new Ninja Turtles rap below.
