New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV Spot Hints at New Origin Story

Anyone who’s a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knows their origin: they were turtles that were accidentally mutated after exposure to the “ooze.” (which is said to be the same chemical from the same accident that gave Marvel’s Daredevil his powers.) but the latest TV spot for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film reboot hints at a new origin story, one in which the turtles were not the products of an accident, but intentionally created for warfare.

New Trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

After a lot of the controversy that normally follows Michael Bay (who didn’t even direct this film, just produced it), the latest movie reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is all set to go, and has released a new trailer. This new trailer is a little bit more meaty, showing a lot of footage and a good deal longer look at Shredder (or should we say, “The” Shredder.)

New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer

The second official trailer for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film has just been released. It features a healthy dose of Megan Fox, who is going to play April O’Neil in the movie, as well as a better look at the four protagonists as they prepare to go toe to toe with Shredder himself.

Now, a large part of the new trailer covers things that were already shown in the first official trailer (including the ever creepy shot of Michelangelo removing his mask,) but there are bits and pieces of never before seen stuff in there somewhere, and of course there’s Megan Fox, if you’re one of the few (or many) people out there that’s specifically looking for the actress. You can check out the trailer below:

First Trailer for Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles Released

The trailer for Michael Bay’s reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie franchise has been released online. The length is par for the course, but it does provide viewers with their first look at the new iteration of the Turtles.

We know that you can’t really judge a movie solely on its trailer, but based on this one, we’re willing to cut Bay some slack. The new turtles don’t look that bad compared to the previous movie versions. In fact, they actually look similar. Shredder looks menacing, and while we don’t really care for Megan Fox, it’s fine because we don’t really care for April O’ Neal either.

Transformers: Age of Extinction Super Bowl Spot

If you think Michael Bay’s fourth installment in his Transformers movie franchise has gone quiet lately (the last piece of news being his real-life run-in with gangsters in Hong Kong.) However, now that we’re only a few months away from the premiere, the marketing gears have started turning again, and the latest one they managed to crank out is a Super Bowl Spot that most people in the US have already seen by now, but is still worth posting here for the benefit of people like me who weren’t keeping a close eye on the Super Bowl.

The Transformers: Age of Extinction Super Bowl spot will be a boon to Dinobots fans, because while it contains all the requisite shots of Optimus Prime (getting his butt kicked, no doubt) and the human characters, it still devotes a few seconds towards the end to showing off the Dinobots, including what looks to be Bay’s version of GrimLock:

Ninja Turtles Movie Delayed Again


It seems that Michael Bay’s planned Ninja Turtles movie reboot is riddled with problems since day one. The flood of criticism it got when it was first announced is well-documented, as fans did not receive the planned origin change well (basically, instead of being mutated by radioactive chemicals, the Turtles are now mutate reptilian spawns of aliens who have invaded our planet.) The outrage over the origin change seems to have settled down these days, probably because original co-creator Kevin Eastman has voiced his support of the changes.

Now, the Nickelodeon/Platinum Dunes feature seems to be encountering another setback as reports that Ninja Turtles will be pushed back to August 8, 2014, from its original June 6, 2014 release date. According to reps, the delay is meant to give more breathing room for the studio’s other big tentpole summer pic, Transformers 4.
