The most recent trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows just debuted before the weekend began, and it finally showed more of the Dimension X villain Krang really sticking it to the heroes in a half-shell. Now some new clips from the sequel have arrived online, showing us even more of the new supporting heroes and villains.
The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 clips give us the introduction of Arrow star Stephen Amell as the new Casey Jones as well as the mutation of Gary Anthony Williams and Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly as Bebop and Rocksteady. And if you’re in the mood for seeing more of the turtles in action, we get to see some more of the airplane jump sequence. Watch below. Read More »
Last weekend, a new TV spot for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows revealed the full form of Krang, the fleshy, brain-like alien from Dimension X who bosses Shredder around and builds his own bionic suit to take on the heroes in a half-shell. Now the final trailer has just been released, and we get an ever better look at Krang knocking the turtles around.

Between Shredder and Baxter Stockman and Bebop and Rocksteady, you’d think our heroes in a half shell would have more than enough to contend with already. But apparently the filmmakers behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows didn’t think so, because they’re also throwing Krang into the mix. Earlier reports indicated that Saturday Night Live alum Fred Armisen would voice the squishy pink alien, but now Armisen’s out and Brad Garrett will be stepping up instead. Read More »
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 »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows brings back all the heroes in a half shell from the last film, but it also introduces a brand-new hero into this world: Casey Jones, played by Stephen Amell. And although the hockey-stick wielding vigilante has been a part of the Turtles mythology since the ’80s, Amell gets to build the character from the ground up, and bring some new twists to him in the process.
“We are meeting the character at a very early part of his evolution,” Amell told me during a post-set visit interview. “When we meet Casey Jones in the movie, he’s not a vigilante, he’s a corrections officer.” Amell knows his character looks more “clean cut” than past iterations, and that’s by design. “Basically, you’re looking at a Casey Jones that tried to do it the good way and tried to live on the straight and narrow, and it just didn’t work out for him,” he teased. “And so he gets that glint in his eye, maybe a few shadings of what might become as a character.”
While we’ve got a few more weeks to wait until we really get to meet the new Casey Jones, Paramount has revealed a nice little taste of Amell’s performance — including his rough and athletic fighting style — in a brand-new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 clip. Watch the video, and then read our full interview with Amell, below. Read More »
We’re back in Las Vegas at CinemaCon, the annual gathering of movie theater exhibitors. As you probably know by now, theater owners from around the nation gather to, among other things, watch presentations from all of the major movie studios previewing their film slates for the upcoming year and beyond. The opening night presentation was Paramount Pictures, which came to Vegas to promote Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Ben-Hur, the first teaser trailer for the Ring franchise film Rings, the first footage from Tom Cruise’s sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Robert Zemeckis’ spy thriller Allied, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, and a very early look at Baywatch starring The Rock and Zac Efron.
But the two biggest surprises involved Prisoners/Sicario/Blade Runner 2 filmmaker Denis Villeneuve adaptation of Story Of Your Life and the shocking lack of any Star Trek Beyond preview despite having Simon Pegg and JJ Abrams in town and on stage for an award celebration. The new Villeneuve film seems like a smart science fiction film, think Contact meets Close Encounters of a Third Kind. Hit the jump to watch a video blog reaction talking about all the clips shown at the presentation.

Much to many fans’ disappointment, 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles wasn’t really about the Turtles. Megan Fox‘s April O’Neil was the true protagonist of the movie, while the Turtles themselves languished in the shadows (all the better to save money on all that expensive CG rendering). But the cast and crew have promised that the sequel, this summer’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, will finally bring the heroes in a half shell into the spotlight. And the latest trailer certainly seems to make good on that promise: it’s all about the Turtles, diving headfirst into action and making dumb jokes with each other and angsting about their mutation.
Plus, if your favorite Turtles characters were always the villains and supporting players, there are plenty of them, too. This movie has Shredder and Baxter Stockman and Bebop and Rocksteady and Krang, and even a bit of Casey Jones for good measure. And yes, April and Vernon Fenwick are back too. Watch the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows trailer, featuring plenty of new footage, below. 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. We got our first look at the little pink creature and his exo-suit in the Super Bowl spot for the movie, which was a cool little surprise. Now we have word on who will be providing his voice in the movie, and it’s a former Saturday Night Live cast member. Find out who will provide the Krang voice in the sequel, and check out an extended TV spot and a couple new posters after the jump. Read More »

The Super Bowl is the ultimate expression of the American id: a game where people hit each other really hard, advertisements for cheese flavored chips, extravagant halftime shows put on with colorful panache, and, of course, trailers for the biggest, loudest movies coming within the next year.
I kid because I love. The Super Bowl is ridiculous and the ads are ridiculous and the culture surrounding it is ridiculous, but it’s a good time. Plus, even when the game stinks (and last night’s game really stunk), you get to watch a whole bunch of movie trailers that have to be good because movie studios spent an exorbitant amount of money to buy this ad space. And if there’s one thing more American than the Super Bowl, it’s devoting a few thousand words to breaking down all of the noteworthy spots that premiered during last night’s game.
