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?

  2. Still cautiously optimistic. April was more connected to the Turtles "ooze" origin in the IDW comics and those are awesome.

  3. The trailer will be online Thursday meaning tomorrow, March 27th? Or the day before it's in theaters? Trying to temper my excitement.
