Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, starring Megan Fox. It’s the best look we’ve had of the film so far, and it’s actually not bad. For the first time, the film has really grabbed my attention and looks to be like the fun loving cartoons I grew up on, but with a mix of the darkness from the original comics. It’s still got a long way to go to win some over, but this is a step in the right direction.
While the film is directed by Jonathan Liebesman is the film’s director, I can’t help but notice it looks distinctly like a Michael Bay film. He’s the film’s producer, but he certainly seems to have had his hand in the film all the way around, and it shows. But outside of the look, the zany attitude, crazy action, and fun loving characters seem to be here in full, so lets hope the final product is reminiscent of that, and this trailer is real indication of the film’s quality. This could end up being one of the most pleasant surprises of the the summer, if it’s done correctly.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles also stars Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, William Fichtner, Will Arnett, and Whoopi Goldberg. The film will open on August 8, 2014.
