Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of Shadows is coming off very apologist. After the first film was knocked about by fans (I liked it enough and it got the turtles’ personalities right), the sequel wants to do everything it can to make them happy. The movie has a more cartoonish feel, the trailers and spots so far have been emphasizing fun (rather than the serious tone the first film had), and it features characters we’ve never seen on film before.
Joining henchman Bebop and Rocksteady is/are the Krang! Whether this is only a single Krang inside a suit like in the 80s cartoon or part of a huge invasion a la the comics and current Nickelodeon incarnation is yet to be seen, but it’s sure exciting for Turtle fans. Let’s just hope the movie can live up to the advertising.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows opens June 3rd.
