Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, And Justice League… It’s Good to be a Geek
This week on the show Johnny and Brian take a look at the Justice League Box Office, look ahead to the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2D 2018 reboot, and break down the first half of the final season of Star Wars: Rebels. Oh, and the Incredibles 2 preview finally dropped!
The teaser trailer for “Incredibles 2” is here.
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is sttransition of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
Justice League Comes Up Short With $94 Million U.S. Debut Box Office
Warner Bros.-DC’s costly “Justice League” misfired with a $94 million opening weekend at the North American box office — $2 million short of the studio’s estimates on Sunday.
The final result caps a disappointing domestic debut that fell far short of expectations, which had been at $110 million before “Justice League” opened on Friday at 4,051 locations. “Justice League” wound up launching with only the eighth-largest opening of 2017 and ranks as the 56th-biggest domestic launch of all time behind 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series is wrapping up its final season and will mark the end of the Turtles’ run in 3D animation. But there are a few things certain in this world, and one is that there will pretty much always be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon on the air somewhere, so when the door to one sewer lair closes, another opens.
The new TMNT animated series scheduled to kick off in 2018 on Nickelodeon will be called Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and this one is going back to 2D animation, something that seems to be coming back into fashion with Disney’s upcoming DuckTales reboot (which looks great) and the impending return of Samurai Jack on Adult Swim.
Following a holiday break, Star Wars Rebels will be back in early 2018 for its final run of episodes leading up to the top-secret series finale.
