Teenage Mutant Ninja Teasers
Handy TMNT posters arrive

08 April 2014  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Paramount

The first teaser trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles debuted last month to what could fairly be described as a mixed reaction. While the promo certainly made the film appear chock full of action, the main issue of concern was the facial features of Leo, Donny, Mikey and Raph, AKA Our Heroes In A Half Shell*. That’s an issue neatly side-stepped by these new teaser posters, which focus instead on the weapons gripped by each turtle.

Though it seems some liberties have been taken with the story (especially around who is responsible for the ooze that mutates the turtles in the first place), the basics are here, with Megan Fox as ace reporter April O’Neil, William Fichtner as one of the villains (possibly the least Japanese-seeming Shredder ever, but it’s Fichtner, so he’ll be interesting), and our four main heroes, with performance capture via Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher.

The voices of the turtles seems to be in flux, with Johnny Knoxville voicing Leonardo and Tony Shalhoub in as the vocals for their mutated rat mentor Splinter, who was played on set by Danny Woodburn. No word yet on who will voice Donnatello, Michelangelo and Raphael.

With Will Arnett, Whoopi Goldberg, Abby Elliott and K. Todd Freeman all aboard, Jonathan Liebsman called the shots for the film, which arrives on October 17.

*TURTLE POWER! Sorry… Knee-jerk reaction there from watching too much of the ‘90s cartoon series.

TURTLE POWER
Sweet - the more I see the more faith I have in this film, I know their faces got a lot of stick but to me the main issue I'm having the is sheer size of them and the fact they seem to have street clothing - why does a giant ninja turtle need a hoodie or body armor More
