Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles began life as a comic in 1984, they were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird and their adventures were published by Mirage Studios. The story revolves around four turtles who studied Ninjitsu from their rat master and father figure, Splinter. The turtles fight against many villains including their arch rival, The Shredder.
The comics contain a lot of strong violent content, unlike the children’s cartoon show that aired during the 80s.
The turtles have had their fair share of big screen releases in the past. So far there have been three live action movies and a CGI movie!
It has been announced that the turtles will return to the screen in 2013 with a new live action movie. Directed by Michael Bay (Armageddon, Independence Day, Transformers), the story is a reboot and not a continuation of the previous movies.
Will the pizza eating reptiles high kick their way on screens for a new generation? Or will it be a TMNT movie too far? We’ll find out when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is released on 25th December 2013.
The Lorax was written by Dr. Seuss in 1971. The story revolves around a young boy who lives in a polluted and grim world. The boy encounters a strange character called the Once-ler who is intent on chopping down the beautiful Truffula Trees. A small orange creature called The Lorax is intent on stopping the Once-ler and protecting his habitat.
The story is a fun and characteristically quirky fable from Dr Seuss. It might be a kids book, but the environmental message is relevant to grown-ups too.
The CGI film adaptation was released On March 2, 2012 and was loosely based upon the book. The release coincided with the 108th birthday of Seuss, who died at 87 in 1991. The cast includes Danny DeVito (Twins) as the Lorax, Zac Efron (High School Musical) as Ted and Ed Helms (Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay) as the Once-ler.
