Trick Or Treat studios has released a pretty high-quality officially licensed ‘They Live’ Alien mask. They eye slits are pretty restrictive, but the directions say to take a sharp pair of scissors to them if you need better visibility, so it’s a non-issue.

An early leak of the Age of Ultron teaser trailer has forced Disney to release it officially, a day ahead of its intended release after tomorrow’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Gotta say, it looks pretty damn cool, what with the Hulkbuster Armor, the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (which thanks to convoluted contractual loopholes is conveniently unrelated to his Days of Future Past incarnation), and big bad Ultron, in this continuity a creation of Tony Stark, not Hank ‘Ant-Man’ Pym.
Age of Ultron drops May 15th, 2015.
These images were sent to us by TFB reader Case Jumper via Facebook. They’re of a Mandalorian (that’s Boba Fett’s race for those not in the know) armor that’s been given the ole Crye treatment. Great stuff Case! You can see more on his Facebook profile page, linked above.
First, they took his daughter…
Then, they took him and his wife….
Now, they’ve taken his wife…. permanently (like, they murdered her guys)!
And framed him for the murder!
And reused lines from the first one!
Now, he’s mad as hell, and won’t stop until his wife’s killer is brought to justice!
Liam Neeson in Tak3n!
In Theaters – January 9, 2015
Well, the Amigos enjoyed it well enough.
As for me, I wasn’t really into it. Without trying to spoil too much, April’s involvement in the turtles and Splinter’s origin is a poor attempt at linking them together, the CGI isn’t that good looking, and the Foot Clan aren’t even ninjas, just thugs with ARs and crappy masks.
Splinter learned Ninjitsu from a manual he found thrown away in the sewer, which he mastered and later taught to the turtles. He also somehow managed to obtain quality, authentic “ninja weapons” for them to use. My belief was suspended at that point (because talking turtles who also happen to be ninjas is a totally believable premise, right?).
The positives? The action scenes aren’t that bad, and I chuckled a few times at the admittedly lame jokes. It’s ok for the kids, but TMNT fans won’t find anything worth watching.
If you need a Turtle fix, go watch the 90s trilogy; even Turtles III is better.
Verdict: Wait for the home release, if at all.
It looks like they’ve slipped a Maxpedition Doppelduffel Adventure Bag into the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, as used by Will Arnett’s character. As it happens, I’m going with the Three Amigos to see it later on today, so I’ll post something on it after I get back.

In this video, Chris Pratt (Star Lord) goes over the on-set Milano, his space ship in the movie.
This piece by Chris Weston is a triptych of posters of the most memorable John Carpenter films staring Kurt Russell: Escape from New York, The Thing, and Big Trouble in Little China. Limited to a run of 120, the piece was produced under private commission for a Facebook group called “Poster Buddies and Traders”.
‘A Dame to Kill For’ is looking like a decent sequel to the first Sin City movie. Fair warning, the trailer is violent, and more importantly actually seems to spoil quite a bit.
Some shaky cam footage of a test film for a potential Deadpool movie was leaked a few days ago. It was pulled, but thankfully the powers that be decided to release the actual test film on the internet, and man is it great. Note two things:
1) This is a few years old, and was put together to try and sell a Deadpool movie to Fox. Thankfully, the buzz on this test footage has been pretty positive, so they may attempt to revitalize the project after all!
2) It’s 100% CGI, but it’s not likely that a full length theatrical release would be.
The S[ci]F[i] Network (changing their name to SyFy was and still is dumb) has decided to do a remake of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys. For those of you who haven’t seen it, 12 Monkeys was a trippy science fiction movie starting Bruce Willis as a man who is sent into the past to try and obtain a sample of a virus that virtually wiped out mankind in his time, so that a cure could be developed. Just looking at the trailer it looks like a way different beast, seemingly sharing only a name and a basic concept. We’ll have to wait until January 2015 to see how it stands up compared to the original.
I think this speaks for itself.
Guardians of the Galaxy drops August 1st, 2014.
Check out the latest trailer for Christopher Nolan’s latest movie, Interstellar. The plot’s still a bit of a mystery, but it involves wormhole travel to save the human race.
Artist Aaron Beck of Weta Workshop was given clearance to display concept art that was created for the movie Elysium.

This scene from the upcoming X-Men sequel shows the remaining mutant resistance fighting off the upgraded Sentinels of the future. This scene alone gives me higher hopes for this movie.
X-Men: Days of Future Past drops May 23rd, 2014.
The Expendables 3, introducing even more action stars into the fold, and not featuring Bruce Willis, who reportedly wanted too much damn money.
The Expendables 3 drops August 14, 2014.
If you haven’t seen ‘DREDD’ yet, it’s a damn fine movie adaption of Judge Dredd (it’s on Netflix) and I highly recommend it. Karl Urban, who played the title character, made this video to remind the fans that they’re hard at work at getting a sequel made, and there’s a petition working towards that goal.

This is one of the few deleted scenes from ‘The Raid 2: Berandal’. It took 6 days of shooting and a lot of money to produce, but ultimately was found to interfere with the pacing of the movie and was cut as a result. It’s also hyper violent, so it’s potentially NSFW.
While the point of a trailer is to make a movie appealing, I have to say that at least the turtles are looking good, and it doesn’t look like they’re space aliens as was rumored, so I’m cautiously optimistic.
‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ drops this Summer.
