Teenage Mutant Ninja Update! New Deets On TMNT Reboot!

Filed under: Film FlickersComic Books

new details on teenage mutant ninja turtles reboot

After quite a while without any updates, we're excited to hear that the Turtles are still coming back…but we are NOT feeling this director choice!

We've just learned that Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman is in negotiations to direct Paramount's upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot…and we're not so sure he's the right guy for the job.

It's nothing personal at all, but the guy's directing track record includes Darkness Falls and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. Unless they're looking to delve into VERY dark territory with this Turtles movie, he just doesn't seem to fit the bill.

Here are the other details that have been revealed on the TMNT reboot thus far:

The Martian Chronicles Of Narnia Is Coming!

Filed under: Film Flickers

the martian chronicles film in the works

After Battle: Los Angeles, maybe it's not such a bad idea for Hollywood to take us to another planet…

Sources are saying that Paramount has picked up the rights to Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles, which is a classic short story collection from the 1940s about humans attempting to start colonies on Mars.

The film is being is produced by Predators/I, Robot producer John Davis, and the stories will deal with the following:

- Humans attempting to settle Mars and Martians attempting to fight against them

- Human colonization of Mars, followed by a nuclear war that causes most humans to leave the planet and go back to Earth

- Humans becoming the "new Martians"

Previously, The Martian Chronicles was adapted as a mini-series in 1980 by NBC/The BBC.

Paramount hasn't found a writer for the film yet, so hopefully they'll find someone who can do justice to the original short story collection AND the mini-series.

Maybe they should just have James Cameron write this. The subject matter is pret-ty similar to Avatar…or perhaps we should say that Avatar's subject matter is similar to this…

Are U excited for this new adaptation of The Martian Chronicles? Who would U like to see sign on to write and/or direct???

Battle: Los Angeles Wins The Box Office Battle

battle-los-angeles-number-one-movie.jpg

Moviegoers were desperate for some sci-fi action this weekend.

Battle: Los Angeles topped the box office with $36 million, which is a strong opening for the Warner Bros. film.

Last week's #1 movie Rango moved down to the number two spot and made an additional $23.1 million, earning a total of $68.7 million for two weekends.

Amanda Seyfried's Red Riding Hood didn't do well, coming in number three with $14.1 million - well behind the film's expectations.

Guess Twi-Hards didn't come out to support Twilight director Catherine Hardwick.

Whomp whomp!

The Adjustment Bureau moved down to fourth place with $11.5 million, making the cumulative total to $38.5 million.

The biggest disappointment of the weekend was Disney's Mars Need Moms, which rounded out the top five. The movie only grossed $6.8 million in its opening weekend, however it cost $150 million to produce.

Ouch! That's a huge loss!

We haven't seen a Disney animated film do THIS bad. Yikes.

So…what did U see this weekend??

Two-Face MIGHT Return In The Dark Knight Rises

Filed under: Film Flickers

aaron eckhart may return as two face in the dark knight rises

Despite previous reports indicating otherwise, it looks like Gotham's most psychotic favorite D.A might return!

At the moment, Aaron Eckhart is keeping pret-ty busy, what with battling for Los Angeles and all, but after that…we MAY see him again as Harvey Dent/Two-Face in The Dark Knight Rises.

When asked whether or not his character would return in the next Batman film, Aaron had the following to say:

"I could not possibly say."

Ha! Sounds like a good sign to us!

….Oh, and good luck against those aliens in Battle: Los Angeles, Aaron! Team Humans, all the way!

Harvey Dent Heartbroken! No Two-Face In The Dark Knight Rises!

no harvey dent in new batman movie

Noooo!!!! We were really looking forward to seeing Aaron Eckhart in this role again.

Looks like Harvey Dent/Two-Face definitely won't be returning in The Dark Knight Rises…and this comes from director Christopher Nolan himself.

Here's what Aaron Eckhart had to say about his disappointing conversation with Nolan:

"Chris and I had a meeting, on the beach, just the two of us. I said, 'Chris, a lot of people are asking me if I'm in the next 'Batman.' And Chris said, 'Yes?' I said, 'Am I?' He looked at me and he said, 'No.' "

More from Eckhart:

"We found ourselves alone on the beach together on a stormy day and he delivered the news to me. And I was heartbroken. I was heartbroken. But Chris has his reasons and my life must go on."

And more:

"Honestly, it was Heath's movie to go on. We had a great movie. I'm so honored to be a part of that movie. I know Chris has got something in store that is going to blow everybody away."

We're glad to hear you're taking it so well, Aaron! We'll def miss you in The Dark Knight Rises, but at least we've got your intense performances in Rabbit Hole and Battle: Los Angeles to look forward to!

Will U miss Harvey Dent in The Dark Knight Rises?
