Hey, remember when they released a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie this past summer? Crazy, right? No hard feelings if you forgot: the second movie in the franchise hit theaters the first weekend in June and promptly tanking, making less than $100 million at the domestic box office despite a nine-figure budget. It’s the sort of showing that could stop a franchise in its tracks; and according to the film’s producers, that might be exactly what happened.

Here’s a question: Why do the Ninja Turtles wear masks? What could they possibly have to hide? Are they worried people will discover their secret identities as mutant turtles who work as, like, electricians or tech support?
Last season’s Walking Dead finale treated viewers to the surprising reveal that not only was Morgan hot on the trail of Rick Grimes, but also that he’d picked up some sweet moves with a bo-staff. Last night’s premiere saw Morgan alluding to his trainer, but the real world has a far more surprising revelation: Lennie James was trained by a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is knee-deep into production and like every film that dares shoot on public streets, it has been the victim of set photos. Lots and lots of set photos. The latest batch of images reveal some characters who should be familiar to fans, albeit in newly revised forms. Are you ready for your first clear look at the villainous trio of Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady? Of course you are. You clicked on this article for a reason. Presumably.
If you didn’t like Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, just know that it could’ve been a lot worse. An early draft of the script turned the Turtles into aliens from another dimension and Shredder was turned into Colonel Schroeder, a secret alien who can grow blades. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which gets totally tubular with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Did you know that Doctor Doom is not a real doctor? Or that Marvel gave Optimus Prime his name? Or that Captain America drew Captain America? Or that Marvel created a character to slaughter Doctor Who's Daleks? We've uncovered some of the strangest and most wonderful facts from more than fifty years of Marvel Comics history to provide you with tidbits to amuse, educate, and inform --- including weird-but-true facts about Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, the X-Men, Doctor Strange, and the big guy himself, Groot.
Laura Linney, the three-time Oscar nominated star of movies like Mystic River, Kinsey, and The Savages, has taken on her most challenging role yet: not appearing completely and totally disinterested in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Exactly who Linney is playing in the upcoming sequel is still a mystery, but we can probably assume that the role won’t ask very much of her and she’ll ultimately class up the whole joint just by showing up. Like Stanley Tucci in Transformers: Age of Extinction, we cannot deny a great actor a paycheck gig every now and again.
The comic book movie craze may have exploded in recent years, but there have been movies and TV shows based on our favorite comics for decades. For all the action we see on screen, however, we hardly...
We’re winding down Best Of 2014 Week here at ScreenCrush with today’s lists of the best TV shows and movie posters (to go along with our already completed lists of the best movies and trailers). But in this time of celebration, let’s not lose sight of what’s really important: Making jokes about terrible movies. 2014 was jammed with exceptional films, but those great movies were surrounded (and often crowded-out of multiplexes) by plenty of stinkers as well.

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.
