These “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” seem to have more on their minds than pizza and video games.
The first trailer for the new “TMNT” update has finally been unveiled, and it’s pretty r it is definitely the darkest interpretation we’ve seen in some time – possibly ever.
Much of the trailer is seen through the eyes of Megan Fox’s April O’Neil, who comically faints at the sight of the Turtles upon their first meeting.
William Fichtner, who becomes the TMNT’s nemesis, Shredder, has a past with April himself, which becomes clear during his narration in the preview.
“But heroes are not born, they’re created. That’s what your father and I were trying to do,” he threateningly tells her.
Of course, because the film comes from producer Michael Bay, it’s not without an explosion or two, including a skiing mishap involving the title characters.
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” opens in theaters on August 8. Does it meet your expectations? Weigh in below!
