In a massive marketting campaign, Paramount Pictures has released new posters for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, revealing one at a time based on twitter voting, followed by what can only be described as the trailer we were meant to see from the beginning.
Unlike the original trailer, this actually makes the film not only seem watchable, but actually something to look forward too. We get a good look at the turtles faces, who (aside from Michelangelo) actually don't look that bad, we get a glimpse at Master Splinter, we see Shredder in full force, and most importantly, we see a movie that doesn't look a Transformers movie with turtles-it genuinely looks like an entertaining Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles story.
What makes this trailer all the better is the jab at the whole "alien origin" subplot that Bay had mentioned in the early development of the film with massive fan backlash. Also, Whoopi Goldberg? What?
Check out the amazing posters of each turtle!
