'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Gets A TV Teaser: 'Brothers'

April 14th, 2014 7:08pm EDT
'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Gets A TV Teaser: 'Brothers'
"You live. You die. You fight... as brothers," says a voice we believe to be that of Master Splinter at the beginning of the new TV spot for this summer's live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. "Remember, nothing is as strong as family."

The new teaser, titled "Brothers," has been released and despite nearly all the footage being shown in last month's first teaser trailer (below) for the film, at least we get a decent look at the turtles' mentor, Splinter (Danny Woodburn, voiced by Tony Shalhoub). Although it's from behind.

Producers are now looking to cash in on the early success of the movie by pressing ahead with a sequel, which is scheduled for release in January, 2016.

No more new films will be released in 2013 - but there's no need to fret! Check out why we're hyped (and why we're worried) for these highly-anticipated 2014 films:

Dumb And Dumber To

Why We’re Hyped: The Farrelly Brothers, Jim Carey, and Jeff Daniels would only do the film if everyone was involved.

Will Arnett
Comedian Will Arnett has reportedly embarked on a new romance after quietly splitting from celebrity chef Katie Lee earlier this year.

The Despicable Me star confirmed his romance with Billy Joel's former wife in August but reportedly called it quits with her soon afterwards.

However, it seems Arnett will not be spending the festive season alone after sparking speculation of a new romance with Hollywood producer Erin David, who he accompanied to Jennifer Aniston's holiday bash earlier this month.

Amy Poehler hates social media

Amy Poehler
Amy Poehler is "terrified" of social media.
The 'Parks and Recreation' star refuses to join Twitter or Instagram because reading negative things about herself online always hurts her feelings.
The 42-year-old actress, who is set to host the Golden Globe Awards with her friend, Tina Fey, in Los Angeles for the second time on January 12, told Paper magazine: "I'm not a real social media person. I'm not on Twitter.
"I try not to read too much online because I always get my feelings hurt, even if someone's flattering you.

Comedian Will Arnett has reportedly embarked on a new romance with Billy Joel's ex-wife Katie Lee.

The Despicable Me star split from his actress wife Amy Poehler last year, and in April, he admitted he was not yet ready to start dating again as he was still coming to terms with the end of his nine-year marriage.

He told Details magazine, "I'm not officially dating. I don't really know what to do. Do you put an announcement in the trades (papers)? I'm dating! It all seems very scary to me, to be honest. So I'm kind of keeping pretty close counsel right now."

However, it appears Arnett has...

"In 2014 The World's Greatest Heroes Will Join Forces For The Biggest Movie Ever Assembled," begins the trailer for next summer's literal block-buster The LEGO Movie.

The first trailer for the film was released on Tuesday (with the slightly different international version making its debut on Wednesday), and if the new feature-length adventure is anything like the recent Batman TV specials, it's sure to please.

The story features on Emmet, an "ordinary" LEGO Minifigure who is mistaken for the legendary "MasterBuilder" and thrust into an adventure to stop an evil tyrand from destroying the...

Will Arnett stubs out cigarette habit

Will Arnett
Comedian Will Arnett has kicked his smoking habit after spending nearly 30 years puffing away on cigarettes.

The Arrested Development star, who turned 43 earlier this month (May13), reveals he made it his New Year's (13) resolution to stub out his unhealthy addiction.

However, Arnett admits it hasn't been easy and he's been relying on an anti-smoking aid, Nicorette gum, to keep him from lighting up again.

He says, "I quit smoking a few months ago... (I started) when I was 13 because it was cool, it was very cool. I smoked for the better part of 30 years and it sort of dawned on me...

Will Arnett & Jason Bateman: A Bromance Is Born

We love a good bromance.

And a new one just cropped up Thursday while Will Arnett and Jason Bateman were promoting the return of their series, Arrest Development.

The funny men were photographed holding hands while they strolled through the streets of New York.

The PDA duo also handed out some frozen bananas with nuts from Bluth’s Original Frozen Banana Stand in Times Square. And of course they flooded Twitter with crazy puns.

On Wednesday Jason tweeted, “Perfect weather for banana grabbing, lunch time in Times Square tomorrow”

And, right before their photo opp, Will wrote, “@batemanja...

Will Arnett Joins The Cast Of 'Ninja Turtles'

Comedian Will Arnett joined the cast of Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles, but it hasn't been revealed who he will be playing.

Arnett joins Megan Fox, who will be playing as April O'Neil, the journalist-turned friend of the turtles. Megan's casting came as a surprise, considering her relationship with Michael Bay following her departure of the Transformers series.

The Hollywood Reporter claims Arnett will not be playing turtle ally Casey Jones, so we won't see any romantic chemistry between him and Fox. That leaves characters such as sensei rat Splinter and his nemesis The Shredder, as well as ...

'Arrested Development' Cast Talks New Netflix Episodes At TCA

January 10th, 2013 1:00pm EST
Will Arnett, Portia De Rossi, Jason Bateman and Tony Hale
The Television Critics Association waited all week for the Arrested Development panel held by Netflix. In fact, they’ve been waiting six years since the Fox series was cancelled. The major rumor was the cast would reunite for a movie, but Netflix is putting on a 14 episode season of episodes. The difference is each episode will focus on one member of the Bluth family. That was the only way they could get the entire cast back.

“They have other commitments, they’re on other shows, they have other contractual obligations,” series creator Mitch Hurwitz explained. “Their lives have gone on so i...

2012 Celebrity Breakups

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes
Every year some of our favorite famous couples decide it isn't working out for them anymore and they break up. Sometimes fans are surprised by the announcement, and other times we wonder why it didn't happen sooner.

One of the most shocking splits was Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. The actress stunned fans over the summer when she announced her five-year marriage to Cruise was over, and she filed to legally end the union on June 28, citing "irreconcilable differences" for the split.

Katie will receive $400,000 a year in child support for the couple's daughter, Suri. The payments will con...

Will Arnett And Amy Poehler Separate After Nine Years Of Marriage

Blades of Glory
Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are ending their union after nine years together. We don't believe in love anymore.

Their rep confirmed the news to People on Thursday, though no more information is available on the split. The pair married in August 2003 and has two children: Archibald William Emerson "Archie" Arnett, born in October 2008, and Abel James Arnett in August 2010.

Neither Poehler nor Arnett gave any indication there were problems. The pair often poked fun at each other during interviews. "I'm clearly the dumbest character in the movie," Arnett told USA Today while promoting Blade...

Notes From Tribeca: Come And Get 'Mansome' With Jason Bateman, Will Arnett And Morgan Spurlock

April 27th, 2012 10:39am EDT
Mansome
I don’t know why documentaries always have to be so serious. Thank god for Morgan Spurlock. The man who brought us Super Size Me and Freakonomics is back with perhaps his funniest path to discovery yet. Mansome is exactly what it sounds like—an education course in male pampering and grooming.

Anchored by Arrested Development’s Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, Spurlock takes us through the different facets of prettying up in the new century. From waxing to moustaches, we get differing perspectives of male hair from today’s leading experts and celebrities such as Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis...

Michelle Williams Headlines The Red Carpet At Tribeca 'Take This Waltz' Premiere

Michelle Williams at Take This Waltz on Sunday
The 11th Annual Tribeca Film Festival came out swinging on its opening weekend with red carpets that were nothing short of fully loaded. From the much-hyped premiere of Jason Segal’s Five-Year Engagement to Freaky Deaky, Tribeca has finally found its form in bringing A-listers out and creating serious buzz around these opening screenings and with moviegoers. There was a lot of talk after Will Arnet showed up mugging his Blue Steel on the carpet for the premiere of Mansome Saturday night, fully GQ’d and headlining a murderer’s row of well-dressed, metrosexually flavoured men.

'Up All Night' Recap: 'The Proposals'

April 13th, 2012 3:27pm EDT
Up All Night
When I first saw in the previews for the "Up All Night" season finale that Kevin returns to propose to Ava, which prompts Chris to RE-propose to Reagan, I let out an audible groan. However, by the end of "The Proposals," I may have let out an audible sniffle or two. And there may have been something in my eye, causing it to leak fluid. Let's get this straight: I WAS NOT CRYING. But I will admit that, for a somewhat flawed episode, it managed to end on a truly sweet note that acted as an antidote to my elevated levels of cynicism.

When Chris and Reagan recount their engagement story to ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Baby Fever'

Up All Night
Just as I was starting to think that Will Arnett might never again be objectified for my viewing pleasure, the "Up All Night" writers came to the rescue! This week, we got to see Chris in the tub, in a towel and in his undies. And even though it was only a C-grade episode as a whole, I'm grading this one on a curve since it featured Arnett 1) in various states of undress and 2) uttering a classic Gob-ism.

The problem with this episode was that each of the three main characters had a separate storyline, and while there were times when they meshed to make some good moments (Chris and Reaga...

Up All Night
Although “Up All Night” took a bit of a wrong turn with last week’s “New Boss,” it quickly got back on track with this Thursday's "Couple Friends," which finds the Brinkleys on the hunt for that titular twosome they can actually tolerate.

It's established in the cold open (in which Reagan and Chris futilely try to pump themselves up to go dubstepping with some hipster pals) that the Brinkleys are in desperate need of another age-appropriate couple to hang out with. Obviously, Gene and Terry are not an option. But it's while at that very boring duo's house for a neighborhood crime watch ...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'New Boss'

Up All Night
After a string of really well-written episodes (including last week’s “First Birthday,” which must have been so good that I forgot to recap it), “Up All Night” hit a snag with last night’s “New Boss.” While there were some funny moments – mostly thanks to Will Arnett’s awkward attempts at machismo – the story was all over the place and never managed to really go anywhere.

The first red flag signaling that this is a poorly scripted episode is the announcement that Kevin (Jason Lee) moved to Idaho for a new job – an important tidbit that was revealed so matter-of-factly that I started to w...

Up All Night
People, “Up All Night” has definitely found a groove. When it first joined NBC’s Thursday night lineup, I was a little cranky about it because it came at the expense of “Community.” And although I still miss “Community” something fierce, I’ve stopped expecting “Up All Night” to fill that show’s ridiculously big clown shoes, and just focus on its solid writing, cute-as-hell baby and charismatic cast. And then of course there’s Will Arnett. I’ve gone back and forth on this issue, but I think I’ve finally made a decision: he’s sexier than Joel McHale. There, I’ve said it. It’s official. Is h...

I’m starting to notice something about “Up All Night.” None of the plots are terribly clever, yet it manages to be inoffensive at worst and laugh-out-loud funny at best. How does that work? Is it great writing, or is it the actors who bring that writing to life? After seeing last night’s episode, I’m still not completely sure. Even though the writers came up with one of this series’ most clichéd plots, there were a lot of really well-written moments and hilarious quotes. And Will Arnett, Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph and Jason Lee did a fantastic job of bringing the funny, making this ...

“Up All Night” continued its trend of casting great guest stars (Molly Shannon, Megan Mullally and, coming soon, The Fonz!) this week by bringing Dean Winters in to play Chris’s competitive brother, Casey. Since Will Arnett is especially delightful in “Look at me, baby, I’m a real man” mode, giving Chris a brother who can play that role just as well, while feeding Chris’s insecurities was a great move by the show’s writers.

In addition to sibling rivalry, “Preschool Auction” focused on Reagan’s obsession with getting Amy accepted to Little Nudge Academy, the best adorably named, petting ...

2012 Golden Globes fashion
The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...

“Up All Night” debuted in its Thursday night post-“Office” slot and proved what we kind of all already knew: it’s more than a worthy replacement for the abysmal “Whitney,” but not nearly good enough to make up for the loss of “Community.” That doesn’t mean I’ve stopped liking the show. I’ll happily eat the hamburger, but I’m still gonna be pissed that the filet mignon in unicorn sauce was taken off the menu. Aaaaanyway…this is the last time I’ll whip out the “Community” comparisons. It’s not really fair. Well, unless it’s being compared to “Parks and Recreation,” which is just as brilliant....

This week, “Up All Night” rolled out its first Christmas episode. In the context of the series, and compared to sitcom Christmas episodes in general, it was a success.

When Chris and Reagan stroll Amy by Gene and Terry’s pimped-out “Winter Wonderland” yard display, the adorable toddler lights up like Rudolph’s nose. (The reindeer, not Maya.) Upon seeing this, Reagan decides to deck her own halls to make Amy happy, despite her aversion to overblown holiday decorations. Of course, this brings Reagan’s OCD-ness (which was in full effect last week) raging to the surface. Reagan’s mom, Angie ...
