New "Ninja Turtles" TV Spot Gives First Look at Splinter




IGN has released an exclusive look at a new TV spot for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. While this 30-second spot shows mostly the same footage we saw in the trailer released a couple weeks ago, there are some new shots, including a very brief glimpse at Splinter.


This new spot is also narrated by Splinter, who is telling the Turtles about the importance of family. A couple weeks ago it was announced that Tony Shalhoub had been cast as the voice of Splinter. Also announced was Johnny Knoxville as the voice of Leonardo.


In this second screen grab, it appears that Splinter, who is wielding a sword, is about to face off against Shredder.

TMNT Movie Trailer Previewed, Will be Online Thursday




Paramount has previewed the first teaser trailer for the upcoming TMNT movie (now officially titled "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" in the featured logos) at CinemaCon, a trade show in Las Vegas for theater owners. Among those in attendance were several representatives from various entertainment websites, who have posted descriptions of what they saw.

According to these descriptions, the trailer is voiced over by Shredder (William Fichtner), who tells April that he has worked with her father to create the Turtles. And thus, the tagline given is "Heroes Are Not Born - They're Created."

The other big reveal is the Turtles themselves. Although we've seen posters and toys and (creepy) Halloween costumes, we still haven't seen the fully CGI-rendered, moving Turtles as they will actually appear in the movie. However, we DO see them in this trailer. Unfortunately, reactions to how the Turtles do actually look haven't exactly been positive...

Meredith Woerner from ion.com writes:
The best way to describe the look of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is giant, galumping, green babies. Like the baby masks that costume shops sell on Halloween, only as turtles. Similar to these babies below — but with Voldemort's nose and very, very childlike eyes. It's very jarring, but kind of what we expected.
Although filming of the trailer was obviously not allowed, this still of Megan Fox (April O'Neil) and Will Arnett (Vernon Fenwick) from the movie was shown and allowed to be photographed.

Read all of the descriptions for more details:

For those of us not at CinemaCon, word is that the trailer will hit online sometime Thursday morning. And then you can catch it on the big screen before Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

So, how bad does this seem to you? Or are you excited?

IDW Announces "Turtles in Time" Comic Mini-Series



With an obvious throwback to the classic video game title, IDW last week announced a new TMNT comic mini-series that will help the Turtles celebrate their 30th anniversary. 
Traveling to the farthest reaches of the space-time continuum, the Turtles encounter dinosaurs, pirates, samurai warriors - and a bleak future, should they fail on their quest!

Written by TMNT scribes Paul Allor (Utrom Empire) and Erik Burnham (Secret History of the Foot Clan), each issue features a time-travelling cover by superstar artist David Petersen (Mouse Guard) and interiors by a rotating lineup of different top artists! Issue #1 kicks off with artwork by fan-favorite Ross Campbell, who will also provide art for the issue's SUB variant cover.
The first issue of "Turtles in Time" is scheduled to hit comic shops in June.
