Despite horrendous reviews going into the weekend, the Michael Bay-produced reintroduction of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Paramount), starring Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, scored big at the box office this weekend, taking in an estimated $65 million from 3,845 North American theaters. That's the fourth-biggest August opening behind last week's Guardians of the Galaxy record-setter, previous record holder The Bourne Ultimatum and 2001's Rush Hour 2. The Turtles added another $28.7 million from its overseas openings for a global opening total of $93.7 million.

With a reported budget of $125 million, it probably won't be much of a surprise that Paramount has already announced a sequel to the movie, which will once again be produced by Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller with a screenplay written by Josh Appelbaum & AndrĂ© Nemec. There's no word whether director Jonathan Liebesman will return, but they already have a release date of June 3, 2016 picked out for the sequel. This means that it will open the same weekend as Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party and one week after both X-Men: Apocalypse from Fox and Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass from Disney.

Marvel Studios' latest blockbuster, the James Gunn-directed outer space adventure Guardians of the Galaxy, starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and more, tried but failed to hold the top spot against the Turtles, dropping to second place with $41.5 million, down 56%. It has grossed $176 million domestically since opening last weekend, which means it will be pulling ahead of the domestic grosses of the original Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger in the next few days. More importantly, it has grossed $313 million globally in its first ten days. It added another $40.1 million overseas this weekend where it opened in Australia, New Zealand, India and other territories with $30 million of the "Guardians'" global take so far accredited to its worldwide IMAX release.

Hoping to interest some of the teen and older viewers not interested in mutant turtles or space-faring raccoons, New Line released the giant tornado disaster flick Into the Storm, starring Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh and more. While it was never expected to be a huge breakout summer hit, it still was able to take in about $18 million in 3,434 theaters, averaging $5,242 per site.

Opening in the fewest theaters of the new releases, the Helen Mirren-starring The Hundred-Foot Journey (DreamWorks), a France-based food-lover's dramedy based on the novel by Richard Morais, opened adequately with $11.1 million in 2,023 theaters. With an "A" CinemaScore, it has a good chance of building on that with its older targeted audience.

Luc Besson's sci-fi action thriller Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson, dropped to fifth place with $9.3 million (down 49%). With a three-week take of $97.3 million, it should become the 20th movie of the year to cross the $100 million sometime in the coming week.

The fourth installment of the dance franchise Step Up All In (Summit) continued to show the series' diminishing returns with the weakest opening yet, $6.6 million in 2,072 theaters. That's half the amount made opening weekend by the previous installment, Step Up Revolution two years ago and this should finally put the nail in the coffin of the once popular series.

Dwayne Johnson and Brett Ratner's Hercules (Paramount/MGM) captured seventh place with $5.7 million, which brings its three-week gross to $63.5 million. With a reported budget of $100 million, it's fully relying on its international release to recoup its budget and turn a profit.

Despite receiving an "A" CinemaScore last week, the James Brown biopic Get On Up, starring Chadwick Boseman, Nelsan Ellis, Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis, fell hard in its second weekend, dropping 63% to eighth place with $5 million over the weekend and $23 million total.

20th Century Fox's sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes took ninth place with $4.4 million as it edges closer to becoming the sixth movie of the summer to cross $200 million with $197.8 million grossed so far.

Walt Disney Pictures' animated sequel Planes: Fire & Rescue wrapped up the Top 10 with $2.4 million and $52.9 million in four weeks. That's behind the $70.8 million grossed by the original movie over the same period of time.


Heres something extra for the delay. Sorry for the wait !

Aaron McGruder's Black Jesus, Episode 1






Aaron McGruder, creator of the well-known series The Boondocks, is back with his new comedy called Black Jesus. This controversial series finds Jesus on a mission to help mankind while living in present day Compton, California. Black Jesus is on a daily quest to spread kindness and love throughout the downtrodden neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of followers.
Adult Swim recently announced this live-action comedy series will air for a half-hour starting Thursday, August 7th at 11:00 in the evening (ET/PT). Black Jesus in not animated as was his last series, instead is a live-action scripted series. The series stars some familiar faces in the comedic industry such as John Witherspoon, Charlie Murphy and Corey Holcomb. The role of Black Jesus stars newcomer Gerald “Slink” Johnson along with Antwon Tanner, Kali Hawk, Angela Gibbs, Andrew Bachelor, and Valenzia Algarin. McGruder is the writer and executive producer through his company 5 Mutts Productions.
McGruder is an American cartoonist and writer best known for his cartoon strip called The Boondocks. This Universal Press Syndicate comic strip follows the lives of two young African-American brothers from Chicago’s inner city. These brothers are now living with their grandfather in the upper echelon suburb named Woodcrest. The strip explores issues involving American politics and African-American culture through the exceptionally intelligent Huey and his gangster wannabe younger brother Riley.
McGruder’s followers were upset to learn the creator of The Boondocks would not be involved in the series’ fourth and last season. Many of his fans will be happy to learn that his new series Black Jesus will follow his style as a magnet for criticism.
The creator’s work has been an absolute lightening rod for criticism since it debuted in 1999. Some of the series most notable targets have been Whitney Houston, Black Entertainment Television (BET), Al Sharpton, Condoleezza Rice, Bill Cosby, Dr. Martin Luther King and black political commentator Larry Elder. McGruder received a host of criticism for the strip he released immediately following the attacks of 9/11. He went on to explain his views in a keynote address at the 2002 H2K2 conference where he bluntly stated,
Outside of the world of whackos and conspiracy theorists and all of that, very few people in the mainstream have been willing to say what I’m about to say, which is, I really and truthfully believe that George W. Bush is somehow involved, either directly or indirectly, in the attacks on New York City on September 11.
When speaking of The Boondocks McGruder stated that it was important to offend, but just as important to do it for the right reasons. Even though he was not a part of the final season, the creator said he personally navigated the series for three seasons through the minefields of controversy. He went on to say,
Although it was not perfect, it was always done with a keen sense of duty, history, culture and love. Anything less would have been unacceptable.
A disagreement with BET has fueled much of the creator’s material for his animated series and comic strip. A couple of The Boondocks episodes have depicted BET as an evil media empire which seeks to destroy black people. McGruder and BET have had an adverse relationship for years, but this mastermind of a creator has found much success on the Adult Swim network. In a statement McGruder said,
It’s a rare thing to have a network home. Even more rare is a home that wants to see you grow and expand as a creator. Adult Swim is headed to new horizons and I’m happy to be along for the ride.
To the delight of his many fans, Aaron McGruder is back with a new comedy series named Black Jesus. This live-action series follows Jesus living in present day Compton while on a mission to spread kindness and love throughout the “hood” with the help of his downtrodden followers.
