"People want heroes, Miss O'Neil. But heroes aren't born. They're created." Well, the first teaser trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is here, and it's a doozy. The main thing that people are going to complain about is this insane new origin story for the heroes in a half-shell. From the sounds of the trailer, Shredder (William Fichtner) wasn't a fan of the crime in New York City, so he teamed with April O'Neil's (Megan Fox) father to do some work at TCRI and create the crime fighters who would save the city. Yeah, it's wild. The action looks fun, the turtles are definitely cracking wise, and though their heads definitely look like penises, I'm generally pleased with the design and special effects bringing them to life. Watch below!
Here's the first teaser for Jonathan Liebesman's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) via YouTube:
The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder (William Fichtner) 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 (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Clash of the Titans) and written by Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol). Paramount Pictures releases the film everywhere on August 8th.
