A Winning Week for PAW Patrol: Program Director Takes Home Prize at Canadian Screen Awards; Named Licensee Team of the Year from UK's Licensing.Biz

TORONTO, March 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - Spin Master Entertainment's PAW Patrol received two new accolades last week: a Canadian Screen Award from The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television, as well as top honours at UK-based from Licensing.Biz's People Awards.

Spin Master Entertainment's PAW Patrol was nominated in two categories and Ryder and the pups are proud to congratulate director Jamie Whitney, who took home the Canadian Screen Award for Best Direction in an Animated Program or Series. PAW Patrol, which airs in more than 160 countries and territories globally, is a partnership between Spin Master, Nickelodeon and TVOKids, animated in Toronto by Guru Studios.

Licensing.Biz held its People Awards in London, UK, where Spin Master's PAW Patrol team took home the top prize, Licensee Team of the Year. The publication noted Spin Master's "range of engaging and innovative PAW Patrol consumer products has helped to propel the brand forward resulting in it finishing 2015 as the number one new toy property within the UK market."

Since its launch in 2013, PAW Patrol has become one of the leading global preschool properties. Ronnen Harary, Co-CEO, Spin Master Ltd. and PAW Patrol Executive Producer, attributes the show's success to its positivity, "The pups truly have heart and their stories of teamwork, adventure and problem-solving are relevant and relatable for children and their parents.

Viacom18 Preps Launch Of New Streaming Video Service Voot In India

India's competitive online video landscape will see the launch of a new player, Voot, by the end of March 2016, reports The Hollywood Reporter!

The streaming video service will be run by Viacom18, the joint venture between Viacom and India's Network18, which operates such TV networks as Nickelodeon India, Nick HD+, MTV India, VH1, Comedy Central and flagship Hindi entertainment outlet Colors, among others.

Promising a mix of domestic and international content, Voot is an advertising-supported service, which will be offered free to consumers at launch.

It will take on a host of competitors, such as the recently launched Netflix India, Fox's Star India-backed hotstar, Hooq, backed by Warner Bros., Sony Pictures and Singapore Telecom, as well Indian film major Eros International's ErosNow, among others.

Viacom18 CEO Sudhanshu Vats told THR that Voot would also launch "a subscriber based service in due course." Further details as to monthly pricing and whether the subscription service would come ad-free or with limited ads, will be announced later.

Star India's hotstar is an ad-supported free service, while Netflix launched its India service in January 2016 starting with a basic package of about $7.35 (500 rupees) per month. The ad-free ErosNow offers a limited-content free service, while monthly subscriptions start at 70 cents (49 rupees) with a premium HD service at $1.45 (99 rupees). Hooq's ad-free service is offered at a monthly price of about $2.90 (199 rupees).

Vats said Voot will draw on Viacom18's 10,000-plus hours of content in addition to a slate of original programming. Also included in the mix is what Vats describes as "content around content," such as specially curated extra footage from the network's long-running local remakes of reality shows, which include Big Brother and Fear Factor, among others. Movie content will be made up of over 250 local titles, including some from the company's banner Viacom18 Motion Pictures whose catalog includes hits such as Queen and sports biopic Mary Kom.

While details of international content will be revealed at the time of launch, the service will also include kids programming from Nickelodeon India. In addition, the service has also acquired digital rights for shows that otherwise air on rival networks, such as Discovery Kids, Turner International's Pogo and Cartoon Network and Disney India's Hungama channel. Foreign content includes Mr Bean Animated, Mr Bean Live, Pokemon, Transformers and Kate and Min Min. Local shows include popular properties such as Chotta Bheem, Mighty Raju, Kid Krrish and Tales of Shiva.

In terms of original content, Voot will include shows such as Badman, a comedy starring veteran Bollywood actor Gulshan Grover known for his long career playing famous onscreen villains, who gets to relaunch himself as a hero. Another comedy series, Soadies, revolves around a Delhi-based family obsessed with MTV India's popular reality show Roadies, which is known for the often rude behaviour of its contestants and judges.

Platinum Games And Activision Announce "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan" Release Date

Platinum Games and Activision have announced the Turtley Awesome that they will release the studios brand-new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action video game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan digitally and physically on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PS3 on Tuesday 24th May 2016!

The release date was unveiled at the end of a new trailer featuring boss battle gameplay, including Bebop, Rocksteady, Krang, Armaggon, Karai, and Shredder, and a brief tease of Super Shredder!:

The new trailer is fairly similar to the first, building on a few of the key moments we saw between the Turtles and their iconic enemies, including Shredder, Bebop and Rocksteady. A few story cinematics give you a flavour of the voice work, before giving way to some fantastic glimpses of the game's boss battles. There are plenty of moves that have the Turtles teaming up and combining their ninja skills, which appear to be both crucial to success and plain old fun to perform during online co-op.

Mutants in Manhattan is a third-person action game featuring New York's crime-fighting Heroes in a Half Shell. Players will protect The Big Apple from aliens, mutants and the Foot Clan in a single-player campaign or partner with up to three friends in four-player online co-op. But be prepared – defeating Bebop, Rocksteady, Shredder and other iconic bosses won't be easy!

PlatinumGames' flair for stylish visuals and fluid combat are on full display in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. Fast-paced, team-based brawling will challenge gamers of all skill levels. Each Turtle has a distinctive combat play style and can be customised with a unique set of Ninjutsu moves, combat items and special bonuses.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan also features gorgeous, cel-shaded art design, with an original story from prolific author of IDW Publishing's acclaimed ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, Tom Waltz.

Rated T for Teen, Mutants in Manhattan will be released just before Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures' brand-new TMNT movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, opening in theaters across the USA and cinemas across the UK on Friday 3rd June 2016.

First look At Shredder In "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows"

The villainous Shredder is set to return in Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures' Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, the Michael Bay-produced sequel to 2014's hit film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

The martial arts master who is the sworn enemy of the iconic heroes in a half-shell - Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello - was last seen in the first film seemingly defeated for good.

Originally portrayed by actor Tohoru Masamune, Brian Tee is taking over the role and has given fans their first look at Shredder's new costume on social media.

"Ladies and gentlemen... I give you... The... #SHREDDER," Tee wrote on Twitter Sunday showcasing the same image that was revealed during Nickelodeon's 2016 Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday 12th March 2016.

The photo features Brian Tee wearing a much more traditional version of Shredder's armor and helmet. While some might note that his armor actually features fewer defensive blades than many previous versions (other live-action Shredders have had blades on their shoulders, forearm gauntlets and occasionally knuckles, shinguards and elbow-pads) it also looks as though Tee's Shredder is posing in lightweight plate-armor meant to be worn under heavier pieces; something that would befit the heavily Japanese/Samurai-inspired design of the helmet.

Shredder will be joined by fan-favorite villains Bebop and Rocksteady, portrayed by Gary Anthony Williams and WWE Superstar Sheamus, respectively, along with the towering Krang, who was recently revealed for Out of the Shadows in a new trailer for the film back in February.

Other newcomers for the sequel include Arrow star Stephen Amell as the hockey stick wielding vigilante Casey Jones, Brittany Ishibashi as Karai, Tyler Perry as scientist Baxter Stockman and Laura Linney as reporter Rebecca Vincent. Megan Fox as April O' Neil and her bumbling cameraman Vernon played by Will Arnett will also return.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 opens in theaters June 3, 2016!

Check out the special preview of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows which Nickelodeon aired during Kids' Choice Awards 2016 below!:
