“Ninja Turtles” still delayed, but plot synopsis released


Posted by on

Michael Bay and Jonathan Liebsman’s planned reboot of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” might not be coming out any time soon (or ever), but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep finding out more about what might have been. Despite the plan to ditch “teenage” and “mutant” out of the title, the film actually could have ended up being pretty close to the classic Turtles stories we know and love.

Comic Book Movie recently snagged a synopsis of the original Kevin Eastman and Andre Nemec-penned script for “Ninja Turtles,” which is currently undergoing major rewrites. This plot summary might not be indicative of the final product that we see several years down the road, but it at least gives us a good idea of what Bay, Liebesman and Paramount had in mind with this film.

“After their planet’s destruction, four turtle-like alien warriors and their master come to Earth, where they join forces with reporter April O’Neil to prevent the extradimensional conqueror Krang from enslaving the human race,” the synopsis reads.

The alien element still sounds weird, but the rest of the summary sounds pretty close to what we’ve seen in previous “TMNT” storylines. And those aren’t the only things that might be similar. Back in June, Latino Review’s El Mayimbe got his hands on a copy of the script and tweeted the names of some familiar characters and locations that he saw pop up in it.

“Skimming through Turtles, I see KRANG and THE TECHNODROME,” he tweeted. “Skimming through, I also see BEBOP and ROCKSTEADY and see something called DIMENSION X.”

Those names should be familiar to fans of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” storylines. Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady are all recognizable villains from the series, while Technodrome is Shredder and Krang’s lair and their home is Dimension X. Then again, it could be that Liebesman and Bay have totally revamped those plots as well, so they might not have resembled the older versions anyways.

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.
