Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Though the trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that has played before some showings of How to Train Your Dragon 2 still hasn't shown up online, the full theatrical trailer has arrived, likely playing before Transformers: Age of Extinction this coming weekend. There's some cool new action shots, and honestly, the design of the turtles doesn't really bug me at all. This seems to have capture the spirit of the original characters, and delivers the kind of action we'd expect from a Michael Bay production. Plus, Megan Fox and Will Arnett make an amusing little reference to the rumor that the turtles would be aliens. The trailer also seems to indicate that William Fichtner may just be working for Shredder in the film. Watch below!

Here's the new trailer for Jonathan Liebesman's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from Turtle Reveal:

And here's four new character posters featuring our mutant heroes as well:

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.

  • Yep. That's a lot of dubstep.

      Kinda funny using a Skrillex mix with Mortal Kombat clips. So far this seems pretty campy, but that may be exactly what it needs.
      • It's actually the song he did for Mortal Kombat 9... it's Reptile's theme. Which is kind of fitting... reptile...
  • Worse than I expected
  • Rick Bman
    How are Donatello's glasses staying on in that poster without ears?
    • Rock n Rollllll
      lol. That my friend is a ninja secret.
  • Eric Higgins-Freese
    That was truly horrible. Shredder's blades reminded me of the satire in "This is Spinal Tap" - 'see it goes to 11! That is one better than 10!' Except that was a joke and I think this isn't meant that way.
    • jay
      Im confused, you would prefer a subtler, more restrained TMNT realization? The name "teenage mutant ninja turtles" has always kinda screamed "11" to me, im not sure what your opinion on the turtles are, but its never been a franchise that avoids going over the top.
  • toonfed
    Is just me or Michael Angelo acts like Jonah Hill?
  • toonfed
    Is Donatello a GhostBuster? I mean, Ray Stanz
    • Dan Hibiki
      see, nerds wear glasses and he's like a mega nerd and to show that they got him wearing twenty pairs of glasses.
      • ColtNoir
        nerds = glasses WITH tape on them...of course! because nerds are also broke and can't afford new ones. and in case that wasn't enough, what else signifies a nerd? GADGETS! strap them everywhere possible!
  • toonfed
    I can see because of the train scene (the guy who enter trough the window), that they run out of budget to buy some physic laws
  • Robert Christopher Hayes
    Looks pretty bad so far, although it's amusing that they threw in a reference to them NOT being aliens.
  • Neuromancer
    Did somebody say... turtle? "Dead turtle. Do not eat."
  • The sound like Middle-aged Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • Steven
    Still not convinced, but the Batman voice joke was pretty cool.
  • TheOct8pus
    Dubstep does not a good trailer make.
  • David Diaz
    I guess I'll be the first to say I loved it, music excluded. Looks like a whole lot of fun.
  • jay
    Whats with all the hate? Yes, its a michael bay movie with megan fox and thats usually not a sign of the next Godfather, but in my humble opinion, these look just as entertaining as their 80s and 90s precursors, just without the rosy nostalgia goggles everyone is so affectionately doning. Its a movie about ninja turtles, guys, so yes, its going to be very stupid. The jokes will make you cringe. keep in mind that this is also essentially a childrens movie. I might see it if i have some extra cash some weekend, or might wait to rent it, but im pretty confident I will be entertained either way. just enjoy it.
    • Brian Sleider
      Because to the internet dwellers every movie needs to be "The Departed" in terms of story telling and acting. It is NOT OK just to have a fun popcorn movie.
      • ColtNoir
        "popcorn movie" means mindless. if that's what you enjoy then that's all well and good, but the Turtles have a rich background and plenty of meaningful stories to tell and doesn't need to be a "popcorn movie" but that's pretty much all Bay and co. seem to have the ability to produce. some people care more about this franchise than you or other people but that doesn't make them wrong in doing so. and to the guy above you, it has nothing to do with being a "hater"..if someone effectively crapped on something you truly loved you'd be feeling the exact same way, but since you care less it's "something so little" to you. I say piss off with that attitude.
        • Brian Sleider
          I was in 3rd grade when the turtles came into popularity. They were kids movies with jokes about pizza and plots that involved time travel, get over it. Lets not forget the Vanilla Ice music video in the middle of number 2. The movie is LITTERALLY called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, try to not take it so seriously.
          • ColtNoir
            speaking of third grade, your reading and comprehension skills are poor, because I clearly stated that you and others like you wouldn't understand because you clearly don't love the franchise as others do - which is why you write it off as not a big deal. and clearly you've not read the original comics - which were out well before the movies, they are different and far more violent than the movies that you think are the original stories. try to learn about the subject at hand before dismissing someone because they like something more than you. and why should it bother you if someone takes something "so seriously"- it should bother you none.
          • Brian Sleider
            Yeh take a Ritalin, you care too much about a kids movie about anthropomorphic turtles. Of all things to take over serious TMNT is not one of them. This movie will be FUN, I like movies that are fun. Most people do, you neckbeards can foam at the mouth all you want, I will enjoy the movie.
          • ColtNoir
            thanks for revealing yourself as a douchebag - shocker, I know. I truly hope you enjoy it.
        • jay
          I'm going to have to disagree with you here. TMNT is a franchise geared towards children and young teens aiming to sell comic books, action figures, videos, and apparel. While im sure people throughout the history of the franchise have written arcs that are more meaningful, sentimental, or relevant, I think its wrong to assert that the turtles deserve a more developed script. They deserve a script that involves them skateboarding and eating a lot of pizza and saying 'dude' a lot. Im not saying anything bad about this, however. I love the turtles, in all their simplicity and mindlessness,.
          • ColtNoir
            that's how the movies, and subsequently the majority of everything after that, was geared more towards. read the very original comics - there very first of anything to do with this IP. it's not for kids. even the first movie wasn't a full on kids fest. and why would it be "wrong" to have a developed script, that makes no sense whatsoever, no one should be in the movie business to write mindless scripts
    • Rock n Rollllll
      Haters gonna hate man. Best just to sit back and laugh at how they let something so little as ninja turtles turn them into negative nancys.
  • Stacey McDonald
    Every trailer is an up or a down. I'm so confused as to whether to like this or not! If this Shredder is based on the Utrom Shredder from the 2002 cartoon, then kudos.
  • Lagoya
    They look like Nigerians
  • Brian Sleider
    Turtle in a snowy mountain=dead turtle. These poster BLOW!
    • Rock n Rollllll
      Calm your tits! Shes still a hot girl. Dont be so angry all the time.
      • Brian Sleider
        I think her face is ugly as shit and I am not angry about it.
        • jay
          shhh baby have some cheese
  • ali3000
    The first trailer didn't do it for me, but this one sure as hell does. Looks like a fun movie for everyone.
  • Blake
    I'm going to see this movie, regardless of who produced or directed it or whether Megan Fox is in it. I grew up on TMNT and hope that it's at least a half way decent and enjoyable film. Only negative thing I have to say is in regards to this trailer... it showed WAY too much. Not that it revealed the entire plot but it did show a little too much in the way that it showed some of the turtles get kidnapped, Splinter get buried under rocks, and Raphael aiming to save his brothers. Trailers nowadays give away too much, like TASM2.
    • Brian Sleider
      Preach that shit, some trailers these make it pointless to see the movie.
  • Quynh Truong
    the dubstep is so annoying
    • Reznik
    Oh boy...Will Arnett will the draw for me. I guess the action bits will be worth the price of admission.
  • jonnyb61
  • Can't believe I'm going to write this: that looks entertaining. Might have to see that.
  • W.
    Ya know what? This look pretty.... awesome! Also its seems that William Fichtner isn't Shredder and its actually some mechanical thing? I'm I getting that right?
  • DavideCoppola
    lol can I just say this looks fucking awesome? I like the Transformers vibe and the Skrillex track. This is going to be a fun time at the movies!
  • Have Hope
  • Nash
    Another Silver Samurai? Hmmm... And another antenna falling from a New York skyscraper (like in The Amazing Spiderman 2). Hmmm...
  • theslayer5150
    Clearly a movie designed for kids (the Nickelodeon Films at the begining gave it away, shocking) but with a few one liners in there for adults to (hopefully) enjoy as well. I'm sure I will end up taking the kids if they insist on seeing it.
    • Brian Sleider
      OF course it will have the "Nickelodeon Film" tag on it, they own the rights.....And of course it is designed for kids TNMT is a kids show....
  • Tuomas Lassila
    Leos voice is perfect 😀
  • steve
    This trailer was ruined once the dubstep started playing
