'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Teaser Posters Show Off the Weapons
While the teaser trailer for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles wasn't entirely disappointing, the casting of Johnny Knoxvile as Leonardo has left some of us utterly perplexed. But there's no stopping the franchise reboot from producer Michael Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman as the film gets closer to hitting theaters later this summer. Now we have four new teaser posters, each showcasing the signature weapons of our four heroes in a half-shell. We didn't see a lot of the turtles in the aforementioned teaser trailer, so we're not surprised that they are fully shown in these posters, but we would still like to see more.
Here's the four new teaser posters for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the TMNT Tumblr:
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.

Well I never thought I would say this, but the posters look better than the trailer.

Part of me was wondering if Mike would have the nunchucks or that weird grappling hook thing.

The texture on the hands is off putting.

True. I always found something grotesque about the turtles..

These are pretty horrible. For a live action with CGI film, these posters should look way more "real" but they look like over-textured HD video game shots with a splash of 1980s Color gel photo lighting. As a TMNT fan, and a graphic designer, all I can do is wonder; who thought these would sell this movie!?

Well at least Bay opted against the bazooka, the rocket launcher, the flame thrower, and the bayonet. Hmmmm Can we have two versions???

Leonardo's sword looks out of proportion.

Well at least Bay can count and didn't give the Turtles five fingers. These posters are probably the only cool thing about this movie. For those of you who are looking forward to this and grew up with the comic books and original TV series, hold your head down in shame and stop trying to hype these up like they are going to be good. Nothing will beat the original movies not even these super beefed up CGI wantabee Turtles.

Looks like you've already made up your mind, before even seeing it.

Indeed I have. I think Fan Boys said it best, "Bay is all style and no substance." If you've seen one Bay film you seen them all. I predict a lot of explosions, stupid comedy and a movie that will be so over the top. How can I stand behind a film that has Knoxville voicing my favorite Turtle. This movie could have been great but it died on the table once Bay got his hands on it.

The original live-action movie was great, but the other two were so bad that YOU ought to hold your head in shame for even saying what you just said. Even the last CG film had it's moments, and it was not at all a good movie. The two before it were trash and nothing but. This Bay film - with its whitewashed Shredder and Splinter - has all the makings to be a horrible, HORRIBLE movie... but it still stands a chance to be better than 2 and 3.

I'm surprised to see they all have their original weapons. Bay always twists things up to satisfy his urge to be creatively different.
