Next year's live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is expected to mix up the mythology of the pizza-loving heroes in a half shell.
But the overhaul doesn't stop with the ninja quartet. William Fichtner is teasing big changes for his character, the villainous Shredder.
Just how tough is the villainous Colonel Miles Quaritch?
So tough that (spoiler alert) taking several Na'vi arrows the size of second-graders to his burly chest won't keep him from returning for all three of James Cameron's sequels to Avatar.
James Cameron is putting together Avatars 2, 3, and 4 to start hitting theaters in 2016, but fans of the biggest movie of all time (not adjusted) will soon have a whole different way to visit Pandora.
For the last several years, plans have been afoot for a massive Avatar theme park at Disney World Resort's Animal Kingdom park in Florida. Some concept art and early imagery from the eventual Pandora park have made their way online, giving a taste of the exotic alien locales coming to Florida.
It's not often that an on-the-nose allegory for the struggle of Native Americans against the impossible tide of imperial expansion spawns a slot machine tie-in.
But that's what's happening with Avatar Video Slots and Treasures of Pandora.
Now that Jake Sulley and the Na'vi are living large on Pandora, who could possibly be fearsome enough to face them in Avatar 2, which kicks off a set of three sequels to the biggest movie of all time (not adjusted for inflation)?
If a new rumor is to be believed, James Cameron is reuniting with his most hulking lead actor for Avatar 2, which could very well feature Arnold Schwarzenegger as the villain.
Anyone wondering just when Avatar 2 bring Pandora and its blue cat-people back to 3D screens nationwide got an answer today.
Not only that, but it turns out that the planned Avatar trilogy is now an Avatar quadrilogy, with James Cameron and Fox hiring a quartet of writers to help the director out with the screenplays for three more Avatar movies to be produced concurrently starting early next year.
In next year's live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the titular turtles will be created with cutting edge motion-capture, but it turns out that Raphael will still use low-tech disguise techniques.
Unofficial images from the New York production this weekend reveal that the rebooted Raph will still take to the streets in a trench coat and fedora.
Having crossed the Golden Gate Bridge to liberty two years ago, Caesar the kick-started of the ape-apocalypse has led his simian army south this weekend.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set to continue the durable Planet of the Apes franchise in theaters on July 18, 2014.
So while 20th Century Fox's packed Hall H presentation focused mostly on Marvel's merry mutants, the ape-centric sequel to a prequel was also the subject of a panel stoking the flames of anticipation for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes with a first look at unfinished footage. Not only that, but the filmmakers discussed the next step in Caesar's journey during a press conference prior to the big Hall H show.
Even if he's only showing up to deliver a handful of lines, William Fichtner makes any movie better just by his unique presence. He's that good.
We've known for a while that the new live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie would make use of Fichtner's talents, but it seems that the reboot could stand to benefit from his participation even more than we thought, because Fichtner's not playing some T.G.R.I. guy or pizza delivery boy.
Instead, Fichtner has revealed that he's playing Shredder, the Turtles' longtime nemesis.
April O'Neil has her hands on Raphael's sais in a fresh crop of unofficial pictures from the set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as the first live-action Turtles movie in two decades continues to shoot on the streets of New York.
That means more of Megan Fox in character as the intrepid reporter and friend to the Turtles, as well as Alan Ritchson in character as Raphael, the most hot-blooded and tempestuous of the titular quartet. While Fox appears here more or less as she will when this reboot hits theaters on June 6, 2014, Ritchson is wearing a motion-capture outfit.
