"Ninja Turtles 2" Set Pictures Reveal Costumes and Cast

Shortly after the announcement that Stephen Amell will be playing the role of Casey Jones in the TMNT movie sequel, Half Shell, amateur set pictures popped up online of Amell filming in his Casey Jones costume. This prompted Paramount/Nickelodeon to release an official picture of Amell.

You have to do a bit of squinting, but you can read the name "EASTMAN" on the hockey stick he's holding.

Also spotted recently was the one-and-only Judith Hoag, shooting street scenes with Megan Fox (April O'Neil) and Will Arnett (Vern Fenwick). Of course, Hoag was the original April O'Neil in the first TMNT movie from 1990. Although she declined working in the sequels to that film, she remains for many the definitive April O'Neil. While her role in the new movie isn't known, it is definitely a nice acknowledgment to the past.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" Title Possibly Revealed

Reports from this past weekend possibly provided some details on the sequel to last year's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie from Paramount, which has started filming in New York.

One scene, filmed Wednesday at Madison Square Garden, had Will Arnett's character, Vern Fenwick, at a basketball game with his apparent girlfriend, played by Victoria's Secret lingerie model Alessandra Ambrosio. (Convenient, considering the last shot of the first movie.) During filming, the two shared a bag of popcorn and, apparently, at least one kiss.

During a podcast interview with The Lowe Post, LA Clippers star J.J. Redick detailed, that he, along with fellow Clippers Austin Rivers, Matt Barnes, Spencer Hawes, and DeAndre Jordan were featured in the filming along with five Knicks players. He also let slip that the title might be "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell."

Of course, shooting titles are subject to change, so it's hard to take any meaning from this.

TMNT Movie Trailer Previewed, Will be Online Thursday

Paramount has previewed the first teaser trailer for the upcoming TMNT movie (now officially titled "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" in the featured logos) at CinemaCon, a trade show in Las Vegas for theater owners. Among those in attendance were several representatives from various entertainment websites, who have posted descriptions of what they saw.

According to these descriptions, the trailer is voiced over by Shredder (William Fichtner), who tells April that he has worked with her father to create the Turtles. And thus, the tagline given is "Heroes Are Not Born - They're Created."

The other big reveal is the Turtles themselves. Although we've seen posters and toys and (creepy) Halloween costumes, we still haven't seen the fully CGI-rendered, moving Turtles as they will actually appear in the movie. However, we DO see them in this trailer. Unfortunately, reactions to how the Turtles do actually look haven't exactly been positive...

Meredith Woerner from writes:
The best way to describe the look of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is giant, galumping, green babies. Like the baby masks that costume shops sell on Halloween, only as turtles. Similar to these babies below — but with Voldemort's nose and very, very childlike eyes. It's very jarring, but kind of what we expected.
Although filming of the trailer was obviously not allowed, this still of Megan Fox (April O'Neil) and Will Arnett (Vernon Fenwick) from the movie was shown and allowed to be photographed.

Read all of the descriptions for more details:

For those of us not at CinemaCon, word is that the trailer will hit online sometime Thursday morning. And then you can catch it on the big screen before Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

So, how bad does this seem to you? Or are you excited?

Will Arnett Playing Vernon Fenwick in "Ninja Turtles"

More pictures from the filming of "Ninja Turtles" in New York City have hit the Internet, and this time we get our first look at Will Arnett. The original announcement of Arnett's casting did not include the role he would be playing, but now we know! Arnett was spotted wearing a press badge similar to the one Megan Fox was spotted wearing over the weekend. A closeup of the badge reveals that he is playing Vernon Fenwick. Of course, Vernon Fenwick was the obnoxious Channel 6 camera man in the original TMNT cartoon.

Megan Fox was also on set with Arnett, where she had a reporter's microphone in hand while on a trampoline.

"Ninja Turtles" is scheduled to hit theaters June 14, 2014.
