The trailer for Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has officially premiered, and does it deliver? Check it out below and find out!
" 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. " -source
I have to say, this does look surprisingly better than expected. However, this is Michael Bay we're talking about here. People said the same thing about the trailers from Transformers 2....and 3....and 4....
Only way to tell is to get in the theaters and hope we're in for a shell of a ride. (I'm sorry for the pun. No I'm not.)
Luckily, Bay is only in the producer's chair and not the director's chair, otherwise we can expect half the turtles to blow up by the end of the film.
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" comes out August 8th, 2014, and will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, produced by Michael Bay, and stars Megan Fox, William Fichtner, Pete Ploszek, Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Noel Fisher, Will Arnet and Whoopi Goldberg.
