The bodies and faces of the title c...

    Get Excited: First 4 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Teaser Posters Grab A Weapon

    Never in a million years would I have thought the nostalgia for the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” was at an all-time high, especially considering the mediocre original films and cartoon series that wasn’t all that special, but this is when you realize you’re old and not the right demo.

    'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Put On Hold To Fix Script & Budget, Release Date Pushed Back To May 16, 2014

    It looks like Paramount has finally learned their lesson the very, very hard way. After scuttling three movies slated for a 2012 release into 2013 -- "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters," "World War Z" and "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" -- it seems studio executives have decid...

    I remember feeling a certain amount of wrath over the ham-handed 3-D effects in 2010’s 'Clash of the Titans', but the film itself wasn’t bad: uneven, to be sure, but strengthened by adhering to the story template of the 1981 movie of the same name, written by Beverley Cross.

    Michael Bay On 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle' Alien Controversy: "Fans Need To Take A Breath, And Chill"

    Hell hath no fury like a fanbase scorned. From Bryan Singer's "X-Men" abandoning their traditional yellow spandex to Jennifer Lawrence being too blonde and pale to play Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games," internet fandom is not one to lay down silently when a filmmaker ti...
