There are more than few grown up men and women who are weirdly invested in keeping the integrity of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" intact in the Michael Bay produced reboot. Strong opinions flew around from all corners last year as the movie headed into production, with everything from the origin of Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michaelangelo to how they look, hotly debated. Well, like it or not, the final result is a few months away and the first trailer has landed online.

There are more than a few grown up men and women who are weirdly invested in keeping the integrity of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" intact in the Michael Bay produced reboot. Strong opinions flew around from all corners last year as the movie headed into production, with everything from the origin of Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michaelangelo to how they look, hotly debated. Well, like it or not, the final result is a few months away and the first trailer has landed online.

The rather oddball cast features Will Arnett, Whoopi Goldberg, William Fichtner and Megan Fox (as April O'Neil) among the ensemble, with Jonathan Liebesman's film utilizing motion capture for the turtles themselves played by Alan Ritchson (Raphael), Noel Fisher (Michelangelo), Jeremy Howard (Donatello), and Pete Ploszek (Leonardo). So what do we get in this first look? A tease at the backstory for the heroes (no, they won't be intergalactic aliens), a city filled with crime, and four heroes in a halfshell who are ready to clean it up, knocking over Hummers and fighting on subways.

Childhood ruined or are you actually excited for this? 'TMNT' hits on August 8th.
