Just a couple of days ago, the first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arrived. Surprisingly the first TV spot has already arrived too. It has a tiny amount of new footage, but is mostly made up of the stuff shown in the first trailer.
The initial reaction from fans has been a mixed one. Some say that the Turtles personality has been captured nicely. Others say the Turtles look like Shrek. Like I have said before, this is better than I was expecting, but still not that great.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is directed by Jonathan Liebesman and stars Megan Fox, Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn and William Fichtner, it is due to arrive in theaters on August 8. (Via CBMTrailers)
