Paramount has released the first teaser trailer for the Michael Bay produced, Jonathan Liebesman directed reboot of popular 90’s cartoon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
As you would expect from a film involving Michael Bay this is heavy on the CGI, with the four radical reptiles fully computer rendered 7ft tall monsters. The story is a reimagining of the origin and sees the turtles face off against old foe Shredder and his gang of Foot Soldiers.
The film stars Megan Fox and William Fitchner as the main humans characters, alongside Will Arnett, Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Danny Woodburn, and Noel Fisher.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.
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.
