Double or nothing, Netflix has given rise to more than a few high-profile flops, perhaps most recently Arrested Development and BoJack Horseman star Will Arnett’s sobriety drama Flaked. Despite its deeply personal nature, the project earned many a critical shrug, but now eyes a Season 2 renewal with a shortened order.

I like that this video explains who the Ninja Turtles are, for the benefit of those people who have been living in a cave (or maybe a sewer) since the late 1980s and have somehow avoided one of the six previous movies, five television shows, hundreds of toys, comics, and video games about these characters. “Oh Donatello is the purple one, ohhhhhh. For the last 30 years, I thought that was Raphael! My bad.”
It’s only been a few weeks since the most recent trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, the sequel to the Michael Bay-produced TMNT picture of 2014, and though it also nicks the Beastie Boys’ “No Sleep Til Brooklyn” for the soundtrack, there are a handful of key differences that distinguish one from the other. Specifically, that this latest spot is chockablock with soundbites that, when taken out of context, could be used by audio editors to form scathing critiques of this film. As the trailer timecounter ticks on, the negative review puns basically write themselves: “We‘re turtles, whether you like it or not.” “This isn’t working!” “We keep failing.” It’s almost like they’re challenging their harshest critics to do their worst.
If nothing else, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows certainly looks wacky. The newest trailer doesn’t offer much in the way of “new,” but it is a solid reminder that Tyler Perry and Laura Linney are actually in this movie, and that is a thing we will never forget. On the more serious side of things (as if), Arrow’s Stephen Amell makes for a pretty cool Casey Jones. So there’s that.
Just yesterday we got our first look at The LEGO Batman Movie via a batch of new images featuring the mini-caped crusader voiced by Will Arnett, reprising his role from The LEGO Movie. Tomorrow brings the first trailer, and while we impatiently wait to see the shenanigans Warner Bros. has cooked up for the LEGO spinoff, the studio has unveiled an official poster featuring a familiar logo design.
Yes, we know you’re excited about Batman vs. Superman, but with that movie set for release this Friday, it’s also time to start getting excited for that other Batman movie. No, not the Batfleck solo movie, The LEGO Batman Movie. The LEGO Movie...
As if BoJack Horseman and Arrested Development weren’t enough, Will Arnett is adding a third Netflix series to his stable, this time playing … someone kind of self-centered, and broken in California. Huh. Well, take a first look at Flaked, as Arnett goes dramatic in a new series executive produced by Arrested creator Mitch Hurwitz.
Ahead of today’s TCA ’16 panel, Netflix has unveiled a slew of release dates for new original series, including Baz Luhrmann’s musical The Get Down, the Winona Ryder thriller Stranger Things, and shows from Will Arnett, Ashton Kutcher and the service’s first French-language series, starring Gerard Depardieu. These shows join established series Orange Is the New Black, Jessica Jones, Grace and Frankie and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, with Netflix also announcing returning dates for those favorites.
In case you forgot because 80 percent of the real estate in your brain has been occupied by Star Wars, there's a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel on the way. Arrow star Stephen Amell plays hockey hero Casey Jones in the upcoming film, and the actor has revealed the first footage from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows — and oh yeah, that's the title.
