The first trailer has arrived for the new Michael Bay-produced reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In this teaser, you get to see Megan Fox as April O’Neal, William Fichtner as The Shredder, as well as some shots of the new Motion Capture CGI turtles in action. I was a big fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a kid and I have fond memories of the 1990 film adaptation, in which the Jim Henson Creature Shop created the turtles practically. While the jury’s still out on these new CGI turtles, I’ll concede that this new film looks like something that I would actually watch, despite it playing with the TMNT mythology (Shredder was involved with the Turtle’s origins) and my general dislike of Megan Fox. I suppose this TMNT reboot could’ve been worse and I guess I’ll see how it turns out, when it’s released on August 4.

Trailer: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)
Sean Patrick Kelly is a self-described über-geek, who has been an avid film lover for all his life. He graduated from York University in 2010 with an honours B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies and he likes to believe he knows what he’s talking about when he writes about film (despite occasionally going on pointless rants).
