'Transformers: Age Of Extinction' Leads Razzies Nominations


Transformers Mark Wahlberg Kelsey Grammer Megan Fox Michael Bay Sandra Bullock

Amongst the praise and back-slapping of awards season, the film industry also shows its less serious side once a year. Just a day ahead of the big Oscars reveal, the Golden Raspberry Awards, a ceremony dedicated to showcasing the very worst of the world of the big screen, has announced its list of nominations, and to nobody’s surprise it’s Transformers: Age of Extinction that leads the field.

The fourth instalment of the hugely successful but critically panned Transformers saga, starring Mark Wahlberg and Megan Fox and directed by Michael Bay, has picked up seven nominations in total. They include worst picture, worst director, worst sequel, worst screenplay, worst screen combo (for any two of the fighting robots), worst supporting actress for Nicola Peltz and worst supporting actor for Kelsey Grammer. The former ‘Frasier’ star was also recognised for his roles in The Expendables 3, Think Like a Man Too and Legends of Oz.

Nobody was hurt in the accident, and it has been confirmed that Fox and Green - who married in 2010 on Hawaii's Maui island - were not with their young children, 2-year-old Noah Shannah and 9-month-old  Bodhi Ransom.

"I love our family-I have a little football team that's going to take care of me," the 28-year-old starlet told The Daily Mail. "I like being around boys and being the center of attention in my family because I'm the matriarch, the queen bee. My husband is the sensitive type, he's not macho.

10 Of The Worst 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Reviews


Megan Fox Michael Bay

Critics haven't exactly been kind to the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, which opened in US theatres on Friday. Scoring just 20% on Rotten Tomatoes, the Michael Bay produced reboot has suffered a critical mauling, yet it's still predicted to rake it in at the weekend box office. But before you head off to the cinema for 100 minutes of disappointment, here's 10 of the film's most damning reviews to help change your weekend plans.

Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesTeenage Mutnat Ninja Turtles is expected to do well at the box office

"Too-brief thrills only shine a harsher light on the film's laborious pacing and cringeworthy one-liners spilling from the maws of the ninja teens. Soren Anderson If ever there was a movie that should not have been made, this is that movie." -Kyle Anderson, Entertainment Weekly

Well Done Guys, Now They're Making A 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Sequel


Megan Fox Michael Bay

Despite being one of the worst reviewed big-budget movies since...well, since Transformers: Age of Extinction. Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pulled in $65 million on debut to convince the top brass at Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies to green-light an immediate sequel - set for June 3, 2016. Bay will return to produce with writers Josh Appelbaum and Andrew Nemec back on board to pen the script.

"To know moviegoers are embracing the Turtles with such enthusiasm is everything that we and all our filmmakers have been hoping for," said Paramount chairman and CEO Brad Grey in a statement on Sunday. "We are thrilled with this weekend's result, the enduring power of this franchise, and the opportunity to make another one."

After Box Office Shelling, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Is Getting A Sequel


Michael Bay Megan Fox Will Arnett

After the poorly received TMNT movie managed to claw at a box office victory this weekend ($65 million domestic, according to Box Office Mojo), Paramount are expanding their investment in a big way. The studio has just announced that they’re turning Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into a franchise – appropriate, since that’s director Michael Bay’s specialty these days.

The turtles will return in 2016, but is it a good thing?

Besides the CGI-powered dinosaurs that the movie presents as Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael, the sequel also stars Megan Fox and Will Arnett. The sequel has been assigned a projected release date of June 3, 2016.

"Guardians" May Have Saved The Galaxy, But They Can't Hold On To The Box Office


Chris Pratt Zoe Saldana Megan Fox Helen Mirren

So here’s some news: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just breezed past Guardians of the Galaxy to the top of the box office. Yes, you can go back and read that again. The new addition to the TMNT franchise has taken a Turtle-worthy beating in reviews over the past week, but that didn’t stop it from beating the critically and fan-acclaimed Guardians, after the Marvel flick has spent just one week on top.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Why though?

The new and improved (well, new anyway) Turtles raked in $65 million on its first weekend, while Guardians checked in at just $41,5. Unfortunately, this doesn’t even top the market analysts’ predictions for TMNT, which largely underestimated the potential of grown-up Ninja Turtles fans, predicting a slow start with around $45 million. According to USA Today says that 55% of moviegoers were 25 or older, a surprisingly mature demographic. Not so surprisingly, 61% of the audience was male, Paramount says. 'The film obviously had greater-than-expected appeal to nostalgic parents," says Rentrak's Paul Dergarabedian. At this point, we won’t add the obligatory “No ----, Sherlock” comment, but feel free to do it in your mind.
