First official trailer for Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
by Nick Valdez

This is it, folks. This is what a good chunk of the internet has been waiting for the past two/three years to see. From Michael Bay producing the film, to the "they're now aliens" rumor, to the extremely bad leaked script, to the weird casting, to the funky looking design leaks, we've all wanted to see how Bay's production of Ninja Turtles would look in motion. 

I'm not as big of a fan of the Turtles as some of the other editors here on Flixist are, so I can't really say much to how well they're represented in this teaser. But from here it all looks okay. Since the only thing I have to go on from director Johnathan Liebesmen is the lackluster Battle: Los Angeles, I hope TMNT has more to offer than its looks. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles exerts its turtle power August 8th. Here's the synopsis: 

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 and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

Did Bay's Ninja Turtles get spoiled by LEGO playsets?

Seems like LEGO knows whats up when it comes to the new Ninja Turtles movie. An inside source at Toy Fair 2014 snapped a photo and emailed us a description about the LEGO sets for Michael Bay's new movie, that are possibly m...

Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles sure look rebooted alright photo
Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles sure look rebooted alright
by Michael Jordan

Thanks to a few leaks springing up around the Internet, we've got a good (but completely unofficial) look at what Michael Bay's upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot might look like. While none of this is confirmed, the leaked images look awfully close to that Halloween costume leaked a few days back. 

The accompanying poster looks more finalized than anything else, too. I've compiled the images and poster for you along with some thoughts regarding these designs all in a nice video for your convenience. What do you think of the designs? Are you ready for Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles hitting sometime this year?

Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles might look super ugly

I'm not the hugest fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but I understand the very thought of Michael Bay going through a franchise I enjoy and possibly mucking up the whole thing for everybody. And even if I'll stick by M...

Snaps of Megan Fox as April O'Neil released

Sigh. Michael Bay's ruin-everything-crusade is now landing into the TMNT universe with a thudding smash of expected disappointment. These sentences can barely contain my apathy. Here's some shots of Megan Fox looking vaguely ...

Ninja Turtles casts its Splinter

The new Ninja Turtles movie, aptly called Ninja Turtles, has had plenty of casting news, but the only name to really be a head turner is Meagan Fox as April O'Neil (and a mystery appearance by Will Arnett). Keeping in line wi...

Will Arnett has been cast in the potentially ill-fated Ninja Turtles, directed by Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Michael Bay. At this time Arnett's role is currently a secret, but the major characters yet to be cast ...

Voice cast for Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles film announced photo
Voice cast for Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles film announced
by Geoff Henao

Following the news of Megan Fox's casting as April O'Neil in Michael Bay's upcoming Ninja Turtles film adaptation, IGN has reported on the cast voicing our favorite green heroes. Announced last week was Alan Ritchson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) as Raphael. Joining him are Pete Ploszek (Parks and Recreation), Jeremy Howard (Breaking Bad), and Noel Fisher (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2) as Leonardo, Donatello, and Micaelangelo, respectively. Yeah, but what? All of these actors, with the exception of Ritchson's upcoming role in Catching Fire, aren't really well known. Could this be a sign that the Bay-produced, Jonathan Liebesman-directed film really be focusing more on April O'Neil and Casey Jones, as hinted by the script link?

On another note, our sister site, Destructoid, released images of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows video game detailing a new look for the Heroes in a Half-Shell. The game, which doesn't appear to be tied to any specific property (despite the success of the currently-running Nickelodeon series), features odd designs for the turtles, gravitating towards more realistic depictions. Could this game, scheduled for an undetermined summer release date, be our first glimpse of Bay's Turtles?

Only time will tell...
