Not me; I was on the right side of history on this one.
In a recent interview with Presige Hong Kong, Megan Fox made comments about the way women are undervalued in film. Her comments were on point and I couldn't help but think about how her career has been. Megan Fox is an actress in Hollywood with a very mixed public reception and a filmography limited despite her being fan-cast in multiple projects for years.Read More
The actress also spoke about her future on New Girl and "[mending] fences" with Michael Bay.
In terms of the roles Fox wants? Turns out it's more of the same--she wants to do action movies, because they're not only the preferred parts she enjoys but also the types of movies she says she enjoys watching at home.Read More
What's frustrating is the fact that this is still being tolerated--not just from directors like Bay but others who haven't been called out for their behavior yet.Read More
In an interview with GameSpot, Fox said that although playing the famous Tomb Raider had always been her number-one choice in terms of dream parts based on video game characters, she has a backup plan now that Alicia Vikander has been cast as Lara Croft.Read More
"It doesn't look good." You said it.
Do I think this movie looks good? Not at all. Do I want to see Casey Jones, Bebop, and Rocksteady all in one movie? Yes. Yes, I do.Read More
Yes, a mini-fridge.Read More
I'll start by saying I wanted to love this movie. I was on board. I do not fear the word "reboot" as so many others do, but Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just missed the mark entirely. One thing it does have going for it though: Megan Fox is kind of a badass as April O'Neil.Read More
The Mary Sue Exclusive: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Director and Producers Talk About the Power of April O’Neil
Important Fact: April is a bad ass in this movie.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes out this weekend. We'll have a full review up tomorrow morning, but in the meantime, we also had the chance to sit down with director Jonathan Liebesman and producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller to talk about the film and April O'Neil specifically. She's a major part of the new movie, and she's kind of a BAMF in it.Read More
This makes me want to throw some pizzas.
As cool as the original April O'Neil was in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, she tended to get kidnapped and rescued... kind of a lot. But people involved in the Michael Bay movie keep saying that their version of the plucky journalist is way cooler and more badass—just not as much of an action star as she could have been in the first cut, apparently.Read More
BUT WHERE IS THE YELLOW JUMP SUIT?
Some feelings may have been had in The Mary Sue offices over this first clip from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But please, do share yours in the comments.Read More
Here’s A Cat Video That Adequately Expresses How I Feel About The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer
When words just aren't enough to get my displeasure across, there's cat videos.
So the trailer for Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is out, and - though our own Dan Van Winkle is cautiously optimistic - I just can't get behind it. How can you take mutant turtles that seriously? And Megan Fox as April O'Neil? I feel like Michael Bay is the husky in this video, like "Love me!" and I'm the cat, having none of it.Read More
That's less than two months to start preparing your outraged blog posts
Producer of the TMNT reboot Galen Walker announced today that the teaser trailer will premiere in theaters April 4th before Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Sure, Walker is shamelessly taunting us with a tease for a teaser of a trailer for a movie that won't come out until August, but that doesn't mean we can't be stoked.Read More
"But why would you want a lady on your team when you already have a German Shepherd?"
Call of Duty: Ghosts hits shelves Tuesday, and they've released a new live-action commercial to promote all the awesome new features in the game. Like the dog! And Megan Fox! Oh, did we mention that the dog gets way more attention in this video than the lady? Way to meet expectations, COD.Read More
Today in things that make us scream incoherently
and let it be known
Not a Misprint
so long and thanks for all the fish
The premise of this commercial: Megan Fox is pitched a movie with "unicorns, zebras, you in your underwear!" and decides she'd rather pursue her lifelong love of science. Marine biology, in particular. She then joins a team of male scientists and figures out a way to talk to dolphins. I couldn't remember what brand of computer this was advertising like 30 seconds after I watched it, but really, does it matter?
