Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) Trailer #2

Official Synopsis: 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.

So after about a month there is a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer.  Most of it should look familiar if you have watched the first trailer since the beginning and ending are pretty much identical.  However, the middle is fairly different.  We get close ups of all the turtles.  I do like how each one has a slightly different appearance, rather than just having different colored bandanas.  I’m still not completely sold on their look, but I’m willing to give it a shot.  Towards the beginning of the trailer there are some good shots of the Foot ninjas, too. As for Splinter and the Shredder, we only see their silhouettes.  I’ll admit that I’m excited to see this new adaptation of the turtles.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fights its way into theaters August 8, 2014.  Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, it stars Megan Fox, William Fichtner, Johnny Knoxville, Tony Shalhoub, Will Arnett, Alan Ritchson, Whoopi Goldberg, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, and Pete Ploszek.

  1. I agree–I’m not sure if I’m sold on the look either. Or the whole film, for that matter. Lol. I’m still extremely resentful about the casting of Megan Fox…we’ll see how it is, I guess.


    • The way I look at it is each generation has their own version of the Turtles. There were the movies and cartoon series in the late 80s/early 90s, another cartoon in the early 2000s, a cartoon currently airing on Nickelodeon and the comic book relaunched a year or two ago. This is just the most recent adaptation. The important thing is that this new movie stays true to who the Turtles are and the essence of their characters. That’s what I will be looking for when I watch it. But like you said, we’ll see.
