Today is the day, the day we FINALLY see the trailer for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot! It’s on a more serious tone than I had expected, reminiscent of the Eastman and Laird comics. I’m super excited at how this has turned out, and can’t wait to see this Heroes in a Half Shell kick some tip this summer!
Here’s the synopsis:
[box_light]The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.[/box_light]
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is due out August 6th, 2014. The movie is directed by Jonathan Liebesman and will also star: Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, Jeremy Howard, Megan Fox, Noel Fisher, and Will Arnett.
To be fair, I only liked about 11 issues of the comics, 1 movie (the CGI one from a few years back), none of the cartoons, and everything from the Palladium RPG, which everyone should play once.
