Tyler Perry's 'Ninja Turtles' Mad Scientist Was Inspired by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Wed, 06/01/2016 - 10:57

If you feel a twinge of familiarity while watching Tyler Perry ham it up as mad scientist Baxter Stockman in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, that's because he may remind you of another very real scientist, Neil deGrasse Tyson. Granted, Stockman is way off his rocker, which makes him a great villain for the Ninja Turtles and one of the reasons he's appeared in everything from the comics to the animated series. And though Neil deGrasse Tyson is not a complete lunatic...

Wed, 06/01/2016 - 06:23

We first heard about Disney's plans to develop a new take on Mary Poppins last fall. As announced at the time, Rob Marshall was set to direct and the story would take place some 20 years after the events depicted in the wildly popular 1964 family musical starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. Emily Blunt was quickly touted for the lead role in the sequel, which made sense since she and director Marshall had just worked together on the musical Into the Woods. Blunt demonstrated her...

Megan Fox doesn’t play a superhero in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, but she may soon be able to claim super-mom status in real life. The TMNT: Out of the Shadows actress, mother to three-and-a-half-year-old Noah and two-year-old Bodhi, is is expecting another child, and soon she will have three kids under the age of five.

Calling All Casey Jones Fans: Stephen Amell Is Signed for More 'Ninja Turtles' Movies

Tue, 05/31/2016 - 13:37

In our nerdy Ninja Turtle-lovin' opinion, Casey Jones is a character so important to the TMNT mythology, he should play a huge role in all of the movies. And he does just that in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (in theaters June 3), as Stephen Amell (Arrow) portrays a live-action version of the hockey mask-wearin' tough guy for the first time since 1993 (we love you Elias Koteas!), not counting this short fan film (Chris Evans voiced Jones in the 2007 animated...

Some things in life we just know to be true. The sun rises in the east, snow is cold, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles love pizza.

Are Your Kids Ready for 'Alice Through the Looking Glass'?

Tue, 05/31/2016 - 09:00

  In comparing Disney’s latest live-action film, Alice Through the Looking Glass, with its 2010 predecessor, Alice in Wonderland, the first thing that comes to mind is the scare factor. Namely, six years ago, when the first film was released, my boys (10, 12) were six years younger (math!), and found it to be very dark and fist-clenchingly scary. Would Alice Through the Looking Glass follow suit?  Imagine my surprise when I sat down to write and realized that Alice...
