‘TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES’ Trailer Arrives
Here is our first look at the new reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Being a kid born and raised in the ’80s, TMNT holds a dear place in my heart, but I’m wondering if this movie is destined for box office glory or box office bomb. Directed by Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Michael Bay, the trailer definitely sets the stage for an action packed film, and we come to learn that Shredder (played by William Fichtner) and April O’Neil’s father were responsible for the creation of the Ninja Turtles (a new twist to the origin story).
After watching the trailer, though, I’ve come to the same conclusion as several others, which is that while the movie itself looks promising the turtles still sound like the ones from the cartoon. If you are going to try and create an action film with Ninja Turtles and have a realistic feel to it you should make sure the characters’ voices fit that world. It’ll be interesting to see how they sound in the next trailer, but for right now, I’m on the fence.
And in case you’re wondering, I’m a Donatello fan…
