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 »

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 »

With the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in theaters August 8, Paramount is pulling out all the stops to get fans excited for the film at Comic-Con. Plus, we have the opportunity to exclusively tell you about one of the coolest events which ends with free Ninja Turtles pizza presented by Pizza Hut.
On Thursday July 24, fans at Comic-Con can send a tweet with the hashtag #PizzaHutTMNT and be selected to get a free slice of pizza in a collectible box designed by frequent Gallery 1988 artist Scott Derby. They can also jump up and ride a 16 foot long tank called the “Pizza Thrower.”

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.

The next few days are going to be filled with more “Cool Stuff” posts than usual because of the awesome items hitting the floor at San Diego Comic-Con. You’ve probably already seen this Jurassic World poster, Marvel’s cool hoodies and more, but we’ve yet to hear much from Mondo. That’s going to change. At the convention they’re finally revealing something that has been teased for a few months. The company is getting into toys.
Starting later this year, Mondo will begin releasing officially licensed toys based on popular properties. They’re kicking it off with an official license for The Iron Giant (a property that has been something that has been illusive to collectors for years) as well as some new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stuff as well as Alfred Hitchcock. Read more and see images of the Mondo Iron Giant toys below. Read More »

Briefly: Yes, that’s a real thing. Announced yesterday, IDW Publishing is doing a comic book crossover in October called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters. It’s a four issue run with the following description: “When a new invention goes haywire, the Turtles are sent to a whole new type of New York City. One with a whole lot more ghosts… and Ghostbusters! The two teams will have to learn to get along quickly, because a new foe from the Turtles past has followed them and aims to conquer NYC!” It’s written by Erik Burnham and Tom Waltz with art by Dan Schoening.
