The “snout or no snout” debate will probably rage on for the foreseeable future, but whatever side you should fall on, these are the Ninja Turtles we’re going to have to live with. And, from the looks of the trailer, this could be a fun film that captures the absurdity of the concept, the individuality of the characters and all the martial arts that fans have loved throughout the years. And, since the antics will most assuredly be geared for the juvenile, this could be another successful franchise for Paramount. With Michael Bay producing, here’s to hoping that the movie isn’t as punishingly long as another well-known Paramount series.
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 O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan. Based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Characters Created by PETER LAIRD and KEVIN EASTMAN with a Screenplay by JOSH APPELBAUM & ANDRÉ NEMEC and EVAN DAUGHERTY, Producer MICHAEL BAY (the blockbuster Transformers franchise) and director JONATHAN LIEBESMAN (Wrath of the Titans) bring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the popular franchise that has captivated audiences of all ages for decades, into the 21st century.
