Even though the reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 2014 was a success at the box office with over $493 million worldwide, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows did not perform nearly as well, making less than half that with only $245 million worldwide. Producer Andrew Form recently sat down for a chat to talk about the disappointing box office reception and what might have went wrong, not to mention predicting that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3 probably isn’t in the cards.

This past summer brought us Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, for everyone who didn’t learn their lesson from the awful first movie in the rebooted comic book franchise that is now in the hands of producer Michael Bay and whatever director is looking for a paycheck. And now Honest Trailers is taking it to task.

This summer is getting a big dose of turtle power with the forthcoming sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Embracing the more cartoonish elements of the comic book favorite characters who were launched into massive popularity in the 1990s, this sequel is bringing a lot of characters from TMNT mythology to the big screen that we’ve never seen before. In addition to the return of Shredder, there’s Rocksteady, Bebop, Baxter Stockman and even Krang (voiced by Fred Armisen) and his Technodrome.
Some new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 TV spots have just arrived online this week, and one quick one offers a new glimpse at Krang outside of his cybernetic suit that was shown off in the Super Bowl spot earlier this year. The rest of them have a bunch of footage from the previous trailers with some snippets of unseen action featuring our heroes in a half-shell. Read More »
Right now WonderCon is underway over in Los Angeles, and some little details from the panels at the pop culture convention are making their way online. Our first update out of the gate concerns Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows with a new addition to the cast.
In addition to the first big screen appearance of henchman mutants Rocksteady (Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly) and Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams), the sequel would also be bringing the inter-dimensional villain Krang into the fray.

Even though the horror flick Ouija, inspired by the spirit board that has been said to allow users to speak to people in the afterlife, wasn’t a massive hit at the box office last year, it still pulled in $100 million worldwide on a budget of just $5 million. That made it profitable enough for Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions, Platinum Dunes and Hasbro to move forward with a sequel, which was announced back in January.
The first movie was absolutely terrible, and the paltry 7% on Rotten Tomatoes reinforces that. However, now there’s a chance that the sequel could be better with with Oculus helmer Mike Flanagan directing Ouija 2. Plus, one of his stars from the aforementioned superior psychological horror flick is coming with him. Read More »
