I’m in Las Vegas for the yearly CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest) which is the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors. The convention is filled with talks about how to maximize profits and a show floor filled with the newest and best concessions equipment. More notably, most of the major movie studios hold presentations of their upcoming film line-ups for the next year and beyond, and some even show some of their films early to get some excitement from those booking the screens.
This morning we saw a presentation from Paramount Pictures showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Terminator Genisys, Mission Impossible Rogue Nation, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, Star Trek 3, Zoolander 2 and more. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free CinemaCon Paramount reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may have left critics cold, but that didn’t stop a lot of other people from shelling out for a ticket. Enough people did so, in fact, that Paramount dated a sequel before the first film’s opening weekend was done. And now it seems they’ve found the guy to steer that ship.
According to a new report, Earth to Echo helmer Dave Green is looking to helm Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Screenwriters Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec, who penned the last movie, will write and executive produce. More about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 director after the jump. 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 »
