Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Hercules, Edge of Tomorrow
So you’re wondering how Megan Fox is back in the Michael Bay fold, right? No, she’s not in “Transformers” once again, but she is the star of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," the Platinum Dunes (Bay’s company)-produced picture. In the past, she called him Hitler, he had nasty words for her and there was a lot of back and forth (which lead to her being kicked out of the the series for “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon”).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Megan Fox
There are more than few grown up men and women who are weirdly invested in keeping the integrity of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" intact in the Michael Bay produced reboot. Strong opinions flew around from all corners last year as the movie headed into production, with everything from the origin of Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michaelangelo to how they look, hotly debated. Well, like it or not, the final result is a few months away and the first trailer has landed online.

It’s tough finding funding for a non-tentpole these days and it’s only getting harder, so what’s a director to do? How about shooting a commercial on the fly to keep the juices flowing and the lights on?

After adjusting herself well to supporting comedy roles in “Friends with Kids” and “This is 40,” we were optimistic for more than a career detour for Megan Fox, but alas, Michael Bay has denied that wish. The director has lured her back with his delayed “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot and likely the character of April O'Neil, but now one involved party -- the comic's creator Peter Laird -- remains pretty confused about the entire decision.

Well, that was fast. Aside from "Jonah Hex," and "Passion Play," where intentions were good, Megan Fox hasn't been in a truly terrible movie since, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" (let's not speak of "Jennifer's Body" shall we?) The actress fell out with director Michael Bay in 2008 in the aftermath of the critical hazing the film received and seemed to be taking a promising detour from blockbuster shlock with interesting roles in smaller comedies like "Friends With Kids," and Judd Apatow's "ThIs Is 40." But is that excursion over already?

While its 135-minute running time may have made it too long for some viewers, once again Judd Apatow reminds us just how much longer “This Is 40” could’ve been. He’s already graced us with four other deleted scenes, which range from topics like the Kardashians to Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong’s death metal side project. Here, we get to see a bit more from Megan Fox, Jason Segel and Chris O’Dowd’s characters from the movie.

Review: Judd Apatow's 'This Is 40' Is Sprawling And Undisciplined, But Emotionally Honest Too

Hearing that writer/director Judd Apatow, arguably the most influential and highly regarded comedic talent in the past decade, was making a "sort-of sequel" to his smash "Knocked Up," it's easy to assume that his creative well has run dry. Why return to that world, only to focus on a pair of side characters (played by Paul Rudd and Apatow's wife, Leslie Mann), especially when Apatow seems particularly fascinated by the interpersonal relationships between modern day fuck-ups, which provide a nearly endless canvas to paint on. But that "sort-of sequel" is anything but an eager cash-grab or a creatively bankrupt ploy; Apatow is genuinely invested in these characters and scenarios. One of the main problems is that it's an unfocused movie without a narrative rudder; a collection of funny observations about marriage and family without much connective tissue or momentum in an ultimately small stakes story. Apatow indulges in his freeform tendencies to a particularly destructive degree with "This is 40," resulting in a movie whose ambitions are only equaled by its shortcomings.

After the comprehensive onslaught of attributed projects for which his name lies above the title, it then remains a rare and welcome sight to see Judd Apatow return for his fourth directorial effort, “This is 40.” Last seen in 2009 with “Funny People,” Apatow has now expanded his cinematic universe with his latest film to focus on Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann), two supporting characters from “Knocked Up” who return saddled with a host of unexplored issues.

The messiness of family and all its glory is front and center in Judd Apatow's upcoming dramedy, "This Is 40." The "sort-of sequel" to 2007's "Knocked Up," this more grown-up comedy expands on the family in the film played by Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and the kids Maude and Iris Apatow. ''People really responded to Pete and Debbie, and I thought it would be fun to see where they are now,'' Apatow told EW recently. ''I come from television, so I want there to be 80 episodes of everything.''

Turning forty (or even passing through your mid-thirties) means seeing your once youthful body morph into a lumpy, misshapen thing that is no longer as tolerant of the excess of years past. And so, for Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann), when Desi (Megan Fox) walks into their lives, it's easy to see why they both pay attention.
