When the first Michael Bay-produced TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES movie hit screens back in 2014, we celebrated the release here at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine with a special #TMNTWeek. With so many people having enjoyed that week, I knew that when TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS was released, we had to do it all over again... but like any great sequel, it would have to be bigger, bolder, and at least as fun as the first time around (hopefully more). With the release of the new film this Friday, #TMNTWeek returns to the site and we're kicking things off right! My friends at Paramount Pictures have provided me with three (3) 27x40 Theatrical One-Sheet Posters for the film, and we're giving readers a shot at winning them all week! Enter below, and get ready to kick some shell!
On June 3, Paramount Pictures will release TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS, and today comes a new clip that you'd think shows the new Shellraiser Tactical Truck in all of its Foot Clan-fighting glory... but it's actually Raphael that "takes out the trash." Aside from the new clip (and those new looks are increasing in frequency), PORTLANDIA's Fred Armisen had to bow out of voicing the evil Krang due to a scheduling conflict, opening the door for Brad Garrett to step into the voice booth. Check out the new clip below, and be sure to hit my special TMNT content hub right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine for all-things Turtles. #TMNTWeek returns to the site May 30-June 3, so stay tuned...
On June 3, Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon will serve-up another dose of big-screen action from the world's favorite anthropomorphic two-legged turtles. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS finds Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael returning to theaters to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a fan-requested newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). This week, a new trailer and poster have arrived, alongside the full announcement on the new line of toys from longtime TMNT master licensee, Playmates Toys - most of which are in-stores now! Ready to Rock?
It seems that everyone and everything is on a space mission these days, and that's just fine here at Rock Father HQ since the girls are so very interested in all things intersellar. Now comes word that the TMNT crew will embark on an out-of-this-world adventure to save Earth in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Beyond the Known Universe, a two-disc, 12-episode adventure available on DVD May 24.
When is a ride not a ride? That's the question I faced when looking at TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES T-Sprints, a new type of TMNT play from the folks at Playmates Toys. Following the successful jump into the diecast aisle with last year's launch of the T-Machines line, T-Sprints is something completely new in that it's sorta like miniature soap-box racing, but with familiar Turtles in the race. Each T-Sprints figure can be revved-up (the old-school rev-and-go action) and let go to see them appear to be "sprinting" across a flat surface. Their arms and legs move, and it does look like they're running - it's cute. Then you can drop them into one of their rides (each figure has one included), and they scoot along.
When my wife and I became parents for the first time back in 2009, I had no idea that the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES would eventually be back in our home, a regular fixture of viewing and play reborn for a new generation. While I enjoyed the Turtles in their first animated series and the live-action films of the late 80s/early 90s, our girls are enamored with all-things TMNT at this point, from the Nickelodeon Cartoon, to the long-running Playmates Toys and beyond. One big surprise was the arrival of a Half-Shell Heroes special last Fall, a stand-alone hour-long event that brought the younger-skewing Half-Shell Heroes toys into animated form for an adventure in the age of the dinosaurs. Our oldest daughter, Addie, LOVED it - asking for it repeatedly on-demand, and prompting me to question if it was a backdoor pilot for another new series (fingers-crossed). Now, just in-time for Easter, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Half-Shell Heroes: BLAST TO THE PAST is coming to DVD, and THE ROCK FATHER Magazine has your chance to win the movie, along with Playmates' Leo & Triceratops action figures!
