HERE’S THE ‘TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES’ ‘BROTHERS’ TV SPOT
The newest TV spot for the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ movie has debuted, offering a brief, but revealing look at the characters in the film.
The TV spot, uploaded by IGN, may only last for 30 seconds, but we’re shown quick snippets of new characters that haven’t been seen in the first live action trailer for the Michael Bay-produced, Jonathan Liebesman-directed movie, which lasted for about a minute more.
If you’ve got keen eyes and fast reflexes, you can pause during the TV spot to catch glimpses of Master Splinter brandishing a katana and Will Arnett‘s Vernon Fenwick clutching a shocked April O’Neil, played by Megan Fox.
CAPTAIN AMERICA’S ‘THE WINTER SOLDIER’ TO-DO LIST IS DIFFERENT AROUND THE WORLD
Disney has long been known for how meticulously it localizes its movies for countries all around the world (for proof, here’s a video of Frozen‘s “Let It Go” in 25 languages).
Apparently, the company has applied that approach to its Marvel Studios output. Reddit user DavinderB has tracked down 10 different screenshots of Captain America’s list of things he needs to learn about to catch up to the 21st Century in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and depending on the country where the movie’s being shown, the list is different.
‘THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2′ TRAILER GETS HOMEMADE MOVIES MAKEOVER
So you remember Be Kind Rewind, where Jack Black and Mos Def made homemade versions of popular movies like RoboCop, a sentence that sounds like the rantings of a madman until you remember that it’s an actual movie? Well, it seems that the fine folks over at CineFix’s Homemade Movies have taken a page out of that book, only they’re doing it one better.
Using costumes, action figures and a whole lot of cardboard, Homemade Movies has done a pretty incredible shot-for-shot recreation of the trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
MAN AT ARMS RECREATES BLADE’S VAMPIRE-KILLING GLAIVE
With the exception of Wesley Snipes, David S. Goyer and Sticky Fingaz from Onyx, I’m willing to bet that I have spent more time thinking about the Blade movie franchise than any man alive. I mean, just that vertical suplex at the end of Blade II alone has taken up a considerable percentage of my thoughts over the past 12 years. And yet, it never occurred to me to request that Man At Arms, the series of videos featuring master swordsmith Tony Swatton re-creating famous pop culture weapons that was last seen building a real-life Pokémon, take a shot at Blade’s glaives.
Fortunately for everyone who enjoys seeing fictional weapons stabbing real-life soda bottles, several other people took the initiative on that one, and the result is that the world now has three brand-new razor-sharp vampire killin’ weapons
NEW ‘GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY’ CLIP SERVES UP A BIT MORE STAR-LORD
If you’ve seen the trailer for the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie, you’re likely already familiar with the prominently featured scene in which Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord tiptoes up to an ancient-looking artifact with designs on stealing it in a manner reminiscent of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Now, Marvel Studios has released a slightly longer look at that scene in what you might call a clip or what kind of seems like a slightly different trailer cut. Whatever you’d call it, the video awaits your eyes.
WONDER WOMEN: FIVE ACTORS IN SEARCH OF A SUPERHERO MOVIE
Hollywood has proved to be pretty great at superheroes. For the last few years the genre has provided some of the biggest tentpoles of the blockbuster season. Hollywood is less great at other things — like, for example, providing leading roles for women.
Hollywood is especially not great at providing lead superhero roles for women, but maybe that’s not entirely Hollywood’s fault. Superhero comics aren’t great at providing those roles either. In fact, there are plenty of actors in Hollywood who could play amazing superheroes — if only the roles existed for them. For example…
