Watch: Heroes In A Half Shell Are Back In First Trailer For 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Megan Fox

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.

    I think this looks bad a$$ I don't know why all u guys are hateing on it if n e of u ever read the old comics its darker and gritty. I think they look pretty good coulda done a lil bit better on there faces. My only real complaint is the back story being defrent and shredder not being Oroku Saki cause it changes the whole story but I'm looking forward to this movie being a huge tmnt fan for the last 25 years

    well, i'm not surprise that this look like mutated turtles that marinated years on a thick transformers sauce.

    OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD this looks like such shit. Looks like Michael Bay actually directed it too.

    Question. Why do the ninja turtles, which I have a prospective right to judge their appearance being a die hard fan when I was a kid, look like green orcs from lord of the rings. Get it together people. I think you guys forget the "fun" part of their look. Was the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie cheesy with costume and graphics. Heck yeah, but it was fun and irreplaceable.

    Oh, almost forgot. Ninja bad. LMAO.

    Meh. Not amazing. Not awful but just a bunch of flashy, mediocre cgi with shots of open mouth Fox. Throw in some bland, blockbuster typical narration on top and you got a tepid TEASER trailer.

    At a distance the turtles don't look half bad, not my taste but tolerable. But close up, well, Mike Myers should sue! Mikey looked like Shrek with a giant backpack! What the hell was with the NOSE on his face?

    I thought this was suppose to be live action like the orginal movie, but the turtles look CGI. I was excited about the movie until I saw the trailer.

    Lovely screwing up the story why the Hell did Bay get to do this movie -smh-

  • Corey | March 27, 2014 12:13 PMReply

    Also I'm glad Michael Bay seemed to ditch the idea of alien turtles but why did Mikey look so fat?

    I agree that the turtles looked like crap, I also dont buy Megan Fox as April ONiel, she is not supposed to be smoking hot, and shredder is supposed to be Japanese, although I do like the actor playing Shredder. I will see it but I'll probably be disapointed

    "Well, in the spirit of ruining everything you love, here are the Ninja Turtles you loved so much, thoroughly ruined." Thanks, Hollywood.

    i love the ninja turtles, but that looked absolutely awful.

  • Just_LJ | March 27, 2014 11:48 AMReply

    I thought this would be a more life like turtle and not so much a who framed rodger rabbit. Well this sucks...

    What a snotty opening line to this article. How about you go f*ck yourself, Kevin? Hipster dickhead.

  • K-Rock | March 27, 2014 11:50 AM

    I agree. "weirdly invested"... What a douche.

    You don't have to. There was already a movie in 1990 that wasn't a steaming pile like this one is going to be.
