“Ninja Turtles” delayed until 2014 at earliest


Posted by on

It seems like everyone can now stop complaining about Michael Bay and Jonathan Liebesman’s planned reboot of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Well, for a couple of years at least.

The Hollywood Reporter is citing “script issues” as the reason that Paramount Pictures has opted to delay “Ninja Turtles” for the time being. The project was in pre-production, but Paramount has fired the crew temporarily. One source is telling THR that the delay is “indefinite,” while another says that production is being pushed back 10 months and that the movie’s release date will be May 2014 instead of December 2013.

If Paramount isn’t 100 percent behind this flick, it seems like a delay is a good thing no matter what the studio’s reasoning is. A lot of people have been unsure about this planned relaunch of the franchise, especially since the live action movie was going to ditch the “teenage” and “mutant” elements of the titular turtles and have the “Ninja Turtles” be aliens instead. There’s no guarantee that that will change in the new version, but at least screenwriters Kevin Eastman and Andre Nemec will be putting out a better quality product (hopefully).

When IFC caught up with Liebesman a few months back, he said that fans shouldn’t be worried about the shift in origin story.

“I don’t want to put anything in the movie that’s not coming from the exact same sentiment that created the Turtles or created any mythology around them,” he said. “That is why anything we do is going to tie back into the mythology people love. It’s all coming from that same place.”

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
