‘Ninja Turtles’ Concept Art Reveals What Bebop, Rocksteady and Krang Would Have Looked Like

For most of us, the pain of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' has come and gone (though the movie opens this weekend in the UK), and it's probably best to put it behind us. But, maybe somewhere throughout the development process, maybe there was a good 'Ninja Turtles' movie in there somewhere before it was homogenized within an inch of its life. Case in point: this new concept art that reveals classic TMNT villains Bebop, Rockstead and Krang almost made their way into the film.

Watch How ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Created Its Half-Shelled Heroes

TMNT Motion Capture Video

When our first look at the new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' was revealed way back when, fan reaction was, well, pretty underwhelming if not completely off-the-rocker angry that their favorite heroes in a half-shell were made to look like a mad scientist's laboratory experiment gone amuck. Nonetheless, the process in which these characters were created through motion capture is pretty stellar.

Most people didn't love the way the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looked in their recent movie, what with the lips and noses and eyes. Little did those people know that it could've been worse.

It’s OK That ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Made a Lot of Money

“You sit in New York and say, ‘That’s a piece of junk. Why do they make movies like that?’ Then you come out here, and you can begin to understand how they can make movies like that. The fact is, people pay money to see them.” I was reminded of this Brian De Palma quote from ‘The Devil’s Candy’ -- Julie Salamon’s 1991 expose on the making of the box office bomb, ‘The Bonfire of the Vanities – while reading some of the vitriol spewed toward ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ after it, kind of surprisingly, grossed $65 million this past weekend.

Will Arnett Gracefully Destroys Pinatas on ‘The Tonight Show’

Arnett

Will Arnett's latest feature film, 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,' is heavy on the kicking and punching -- it is about turtles who like karate, after all -- but that doesn't necessarily mean that the funny guy has his own martial arts chops. When the comedian hit up 'The Tonight Show' last night to chat about the film, host Jimmy Fallon couldn't help but challenge him to a kicking-based game: Karate Pinata, a combination of ancient disciplines and modern party games.

Enough With the ‘I Need Your Blood’ Movies Already

The latest entry to the “I need your blood but I’m not a vampire movies” genre is ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ a movie I would probably have simply watched and forgotten almost immediately – just like all of the other ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ movies -- if it wasn’t for it’s awfully familiar plot point: The villains (I’m being vague on who the villains are as to avoid spoilers) (Also: ha!) needs the Turtles’ blood. Of course the villain needs the Turtles’ blood because what why else would anyone have any interest in English-speaking human adult-size turtles?

The ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Reboot is Really Just a ‘Transformers’ Remake

Paramount
Paramount

If something seems strangely familiar about the new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot opening Friday, that’s not too surprising, since Jonathan Liebesman’s film is little more than a thinly veiled remake of the 'Transformers' movies. Sure, the nominal source material for this latest ninja-turtles adventure is Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird’s 1980s comic books, as well as the cartoon series and three live-action films from the early ‘90s, all of which led to a merchandising bonanza built around the characters’ good-natured valor, love of pizza, and fondness for exclamations like “gnarly!”, “radical!” and “cowabunga!” Yet a closer inspection of Liebesman’s adaptation reveals that, far more than those predecessors, the real inspiration for this wannabe-blockbuster is its producer Michael Bay’s four robot-centric extravaganzas. As proof, here’s a rundown of the many clues that 'TMNT' is nothing but 'Transformers' in a half shell.
