Weekend Box Office: Guardians Of The Galaxy Triumphs Over Turtles
This weekend the staying power of quality comic-book-movie-making over crappy comic-book-movie-remaking proved there is a little bit of justice in the world of the box office.

Hollywood Faces A Record-Setting Box Office Slump, Despite Guardians Of The Galaxy Boost
While August has classically been considered a weak spot on the Hollywood release date schedule, with studios regularly using the time as a sort of dumping ground for blockbusters they don't have much faith in, that hasn't been the case so far in 2014. The month got off to a hot start with the release of Marvel Studios' record-setting Guardians of the Galaxy, and a second week boost came in the form of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Original April O'Neil: A Lot Of Foreign Stuntmen Were Injured On Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film might be remembered by most with nostalgia and fondness, but in retrospect, the larger franchise wasn’t exactly an example of smooth sailing. The films varied sharply in quality, some of the characters were recast for a wide variety of reasons and there was even a lot of on-set injuries that were allegedly covered up.

Vanilla Ice Has Opinions About The New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Theme Song
Ice might have a case here. The new song does seem produced to feature as many genres as possible. "Ninja Rap" certainly has a bit of early nineties New Jack Swing, isolating that backbeat to create a tune much better suited for enthusiastic dancefloor action. He is the true hero in a half shell.

Megan Fox Tells Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Haters To F**k Off
The new reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been surrounded by controversy from the very beginning.

New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Poster Hits Too Close To 9/11 For Many
There are certain movies that seem to court controversy. They find a polarizing subject, and they release marketing materials in order to generate headlines. Stirring the pot is the basic marketing strategy. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is not one of those movies. In fact, the flick’s basic existence is likely owed to good vibes and the marketing power of nostalgia.

If Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Gets A Sequel, Expect Bebop And Rocksteady
The thing about the Ninja Turtles is that, at heart, the property is either lightweight kids' junk, or it's satirically silly parody. The hyper-violent Casey Jones falls into the latter category, a spoofy mixture of the Punisher and Jason Voorhees.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Motion Posters Have Arrived
We're about a month away from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which means the ad campaign is about to head into overdrive. Goody.

Oh, motion posters, the sonnet of the 21st century.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Finally Unleashes Shredder!
Through the early history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films, those involved creatively have always tried to make Shredder seem scary and intimidating. The way that the first two movies went about it may have worked when I was a kid, but today the look just doesn't hold up. Even “Super Shredder” doesn't threaten like he did when I was a kid. Seriously, all they did was give him a good sharpening and add more blades.
