The Michael Bay-produced reboot of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" franchise has been filming in New York City for a few weeks now, and turtles sightings—or sighting of actors in awkward motion capture suits—have become more and more frequent.
MTV News got word that Megan Fox, this version's April O'Neil, was filming a scene just down the street from our Times Square offices, so I headed down to 47th and Broadway to see what I could see.
Fox was on hand, along with one of her amphibian costars, Alan Ritchson who plays Raphael, plus three other well-known characters that you might not expect.

To create this sparkling version of the 1920s in "The Great Gatsby," director Baz Luhrmann dove deep into history to discover how that world could possibly speak to the audiences of today. Part of that research has been made available on an interactive web site, but there's still more to come.
We have an exclusive look at some of the yet-to-be released chapters, which includes an extensive studio of 1920s slang terms and never-before-seen photos.

Caesar and his ape followers have evolved quite a bit since the events of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes." As seen in a Twitter photo posted by director Matt Reeves, a "new dawn" is coming in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" where apes can ride horses.
The image Reeves posted shows Andy Serkis' Caesar facing having a conversation with Jason Clarke's character. Serkis and another man can be seen wearing motion capture suits, but interestingly their characters are seen on horses. That's a nice nod to the original "Planet of the Apes" movies, where horses were a main means of travel for the apes.

The curtain on Gavin Hood's "Ender's Game" adaptation has slowly started to pull back, with a handful of photos and a poster to its name. It can now add the first photo of Ben Kingsley's Mazer Rackham to the list, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
As the mysterious and weathered warrior, Kingsley went deep into his research and embodied the character. Learn what he told EW about his preparation after the jump!
In "Peeples," Craig Robinson has to do what just about every boyfriend in history has dreaded, meeting his girlfriend's parents, but the Peeples aren't any family. They're the "Chocolate Kennedys" as Robinson's character describes them.
"Peeples" tells the story of that meeting and how very, very wrong it goes. If Robinson's character wants to win the hand of his girlfriend, played by "Django Unchained" actress Kerry Washington, he'll have to impress her federal judge father, played by David Alan Grier.
We have an exclusive image from "Peeples," which you can check out after the jump!
We've known director Neil Blomkamp has been working on "Elysium," his follow-up to "District 9," for years now, but still know relatively little about the movie. It's due in theaters on August 9, and two new photos have been released that show us more than just Matt Damon running around in a funny suit — finally.
The images were published by San Paulo newspaper Illustrada and introduce fans to Wagner Moura and Alice Braga's characters for the first time. The paper also elaborates on who the characters they're playing are, which you can find out after the jump.

We're not entirely sure if you've seen "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" by now, but if you haven't, there's a death about 20 minutes into the movie that should come as a surprise to anyone who hasn't seen the trailers, TV spots, or a synopsis of the toy-inspired sequel.
If you have, then you understand the shock (?) of seeing a headlining star bite the dust early in a big movie. "G.I. Joe" isn't the only example, however, and the folks over at Next Movie have put together an infographic that collects some of the most memorable early departures.

The parade of Jaegers just keeps on coming from the folks behind Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim." Most recently, they've unveiling the giant Kaiju-fighting robots from Russia and China.
The production design has done a really good job giving each country's Jaeger a distinctive look, and while that's great and all, what we really want to see is these things whaling on some inter-dimensional monsters.
"Pacific Rim" opens in theaters on July 12. Click past the jump to see the full images.
It might seem strange, but taking a step back to think about it, a picture of a construction crew removing a giant pile of monster poop make sense for "Pacific Rim's" ongoing viral campaign.'
If you've been following Legendary's trickle of information in the last few days, you've seen a series of new photos that capture life in the world of attacking Kaiju.
So naturally there will be some excrement in this world. Everybody poops, even Kaiju.
