Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has released it’s first trailer.
Although most people has an idea as to what the turtles would look like thanks to action figures and leaked concept art, it’s great to finally see them action.
The official synopsis reads;
“The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.”
There looks to be a few tweaks to the origin story but nothing that looks will prove a deal breaker and with the release date sometime away there’s still time to polish some of the CGI.
Produced by Michael Bay, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has a release date for August 8th 2014. The film will star Megan Fox as April O’Neil, William Fichtner as Shredder, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Will Arnett as Venon Fenwick, and Whoopi Goldberg as Bernadette Thompson.
