Go behind the scenes with this in-depth look at the filming of Ninja Turtles

07.18.2014

As far as the internet is concerned, the Jonathan Liebesman-helmed TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES has been met with wave after wave of criticism. From the director to the producer (TRANSFORMERS' Michael Bay) to the look of the turtles to Megan Fox (I can't stop looking at her thumbs, personally). That aside, an in-depth look at the film (clocking in at over 15 minutes) features a lot of behind the scenes action, as well as an extended look at the snowy chase scene only glimpsed in the trailer.

Take a look:

Does that do anything to sway your opinion? Despite growing up on the original TMNT cartoon, I don't have any great love for the franchise and I'm definitely curious to check this one out. I don't have any expectations, mind you, but I think it has the potential to be fun if the filmmakers are fully aware of the kind of film they're making.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES will be hitting cinemas on August 8, 2014.

Oh man, I remember those old behind the scenes ones for the original Turtles movies... so cool seeing them do all that animatronic stuff.

Good times.

Rest in pease, Jim Henson. Thanks for the memories.

ignoring how the turtles look, the last trailer convinced me that it has some good old fashioned TMNT-ness in it. i'd definitely rather watch this over Transformers 4.

There was a recent video posted here in which the artists at Amalgamated Dynamics spoke about creating elaborate animatronic elements for films like the Thing prequel and Percy Jackson, only to have them completely replaced by CGI. Maybe it's just me, but the animatronic versions all looked better. Of course the Jim Henson turtles look silly but they looked great for 1990. In 2038, gosh darn these Liebesman turtles will look even worse than they do now. Imagine something like Hellboy, Abe

I reckon that will stand the test of time better.

We already have a great "Jim Henson's Creature Shop" version of TMNT, SchaefDizzle. It isn't going anywhere. I don't hate the fact that this movie is coming out, or love the fact its coming out. The truth is, movies now a days are going to be made with an over abundance of CGI. That's unfortunately the way it is, because most Hollywood CEO's don't understand cinema as an art. People are gonna see this movie, and more movies are gonna be made just like it, that piss everyone off. I'm gonna

But if it doesn't, the original TMNT is still available for me.

Still CGI? Then still "no."

Also, William Fichtner is "Eric Sacks?" Hmmmm...Eric Sacks, Oroko Saki...

was your expectation that they were going to actually mutate turtles to act in the movie?

Well yeah, clearly. Obviously there's no way to assume I was talking about practical effects. Designing something physical and using clever camera work and good script writing is absolutely out of the question. The fact that these jackasses aren't mutating actual pets into monsters and teaching them to act and remember dialogue is abhorrent. Someday the system will catch up with the needs of the true fan and endanger animals for our entertainment....
