“So they’re aliens?”

“No -that’s stupid. They’re turtles.”

The brand new trailer for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES has been released and it looks – dare I say;  fun.  I love that little dig at the fanboy outrage from early production rumors about the Turtles origin.

I don’t think this is going to be the tent pole, record breaking blockbuster that changes the way you think about summer movies but if I was forced to make a prediction right now based only on this trailer I would have to say – it looks like a lot of fun.

The turtles are a lot bigger than they have been in past incarnations but that doesn’t really bother me – their faces seem a little – “off” but it’s not going to change whether or not I can enjoy this.

Shredder? Shredder looks like he was made up of designs they didn’t go with  for The Silver Samurai in THE WOLVERINE and that sorta sucks but whatever – it’s not Macbeth – it’s TMNT – I’ll play along.

Splinter looks and moves like he stepped off the set of THE DARK CRYSTAL and there is nothing wrong with that – so I’m in.

I really liked the unexpected techno music beats in the end – once all the dramatic, expected music finished the  setup it really changed the tone and felt as if it was saying –

“Don’t start picking this whole thing apart buddy – just try to enjoy something for a change ok?

To which I reply – “Ok, I will.”

Looks fun – check it out below and see it in theaters August 5th:


*Yes it’s true.

I managed to get through this entire post without even mentioning the fact that Megan Fox is in this movie.

See? I AM completely capable of following the instructions of the judicial system.
