Despite their name, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles aren’t really teenagers anymore. This year marks the 30th anniversary of their introduction in a little indie comic originally created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. The fact that the occasion will be marked with a big-budget franchise-starter produced by Michael Bay says a lot about what a weird, wild ride it’s been for these amphibian heroes.
To retrace that journey, Paramount is releasing Turtle Power, a 98-minute direct-to-DVD documentary directed by Randall Lobb. Watch the Turtle Power trailer after the jump.

Its that time of year again. Jeff Cannata (formerly of the Totally Rad Show, now host of NLB and DLC, and a frequent co-host of the /Filmcast) has thrown down the gauntlet, and once again challenged /Film to compete with him in what has become an annual tradition: the Summer Movie Wager. Every year in the past I would make a guest appearance on the Totally Rad Show for this segment, but with that show now disbanded we have taken on the job of hosting this contest on /Film.
This year the contest includes Germain Lussier, Jeff Cannata and myself in a game is to decide what will be the highest grossing films of the Summer. It’s a free-for-all; the person with the best score wins. But it isn’t just that easy — not only do the participants need to predict what 10 films will be the highest grossing films domestically, but we need to place them in order. After the jump you can watch the full episode of the show with our predictions.

The actors who play the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Jonathan Liebesman‘s new film won’t, necessarily, lend the voices to those famous turtles. Case in point, Johnny Knoxville (Jackass) has been added to voice group leader Leonardo and Tony Shalhoub (Monk) will voice master Splinter. During filming, Pete Ploszek and Danny Woodburn played the respective roles in performance capture but, apparently, their deals never guaranteed they’d provide the voices.

The first trailer for Jonathan Liebesman‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot was received pretty well considering all the naysaying before the film was made. For years, fans raged online about rumored changes to their beloved comic book heroes-turned Saturday morning cartoon superstars. It turns out almost all of that venom was for naught as the trailer delivered a pretty solid tease of a film that seems very much in line with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles we know and love.
Except for one, small thing.
The look of the Turtles was a big point of contention. And not the samurai inspired outfits; it was the noses. The Turtles looked super creepy, like a star after plastic surgery with a flat nose and two tiny nostrils. It’s definitely a more human look, but they’re not human. They’re turtles.
Leave it to the Internet to mess with the filmmaker’s vision. One Ninja Turtles fan tweaked the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles of the new movie, and improved their faces. Read More »

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, this reboot of the comic book turned TV show turned movie series has a more modern feel than previous incarnations. We hear Shredder (William Fichtner) talk about creating heroes with reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and then, there they are. Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello and Raphael. Well, not all of them together. Not in this short tease for the August 8 release. But you get a pretty good idea. Check it out below Read More »
