New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer shows us more of the shell-heads

04.30.2014

A new trailer for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES has premiered and, while structurally the same as the previous one, we now get some new quick glimpses at Mikey, Donny, Leo, Raph, Shredder, and Splinter. The new scenes are compiled together quickly but we were happy enough to grab screenshots of as much as we could to satiate your excitement or fuel your rage, depending on where you fall regarding the Michael Bay produced movie.

The new trailer gives us some more ass-kicking fight scenes and really drives how how realistic the Turtles look. I definitely got a AVATAR feel in some of these sequences and couldn't separate the CGI from reality which is a testament to how good the effects look in Jonathan Liebesman's movie. I have no major quarrel with the Shrek-like look of the Turtles as long as the movie itself is good. William Fichtner always kicks ass and Megan Fox looks...tolerable.

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.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES stars Megan Fox, Pete Ploszek, Johnny Knoxville, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, Tony Shalhoub, William Fichtner, Will Arnett, and Whoopi Goldberg. It hits theaters on August 8th, 2014.

CG and VFX guy here. Yes. Besides having to re-model and update the textures, you have to re-render every scene. Some scenes take days to render.

if whether a movie is good or not depends on something like a snout or a beak when in the grand scheme of things it doesnt change anything....you are truly lost as movie fans.

Like DeejayForte said, yes it would be extremely expensive to redo their faces. First you would have to rehire concept artist for a couple of days, that's a couple thousand bucks but nothing a big studio couldn't handle. Then you would have to have the 3D models redone, that includes redoing the mesh, the textures, the skinning, the animation, etc... That's way more expensive, a few hundred thousand bucks. Then you would would have to re-render every scene in which the Turtles appear... It can

Then you would would have to re-render every scene in which the Turtles appear... It can take up to 10 - 20 hours to render a single frame and there are 24 frames per second. And then you might have to redo some of the compositing to integrate the new models in the already shot scenes... A CG heavy movie like this costs around 1M$ per minute so I'll let you do the math ;) Reshoots would be much cheap if they had used actors in practical suits... just sayin'...

Sooo... it's the same teaser trailer but with some alternate footage towards the end. Gotcha, thanks Paramount.

Honestly I still hate their overall design. Been rewatching Dinosaurs and based on how that still looks great today, I kinda wish they had gone back to Henson and maybe done a CGI/puppet combo in the same way Jurassic Park did. But considering I havent followed TMNT since that early 90s golden age, maybe this movie isnt for me anyway

This really isn't working for me. Somewhere between the Michael Bay music and the weird turtle noses, my inner child is saying "what the fuck?"

I don't like how Donatello looks. The glasses just don't fit. I still have faith in this thing though

I have no idea why I dig this so much. Well I do - it's because it's the first TMNT movie with a serious budget and studio behind it. I have faith they didn't waste their time with this one, franchises baby!

Dude, I dig it too. Looks great, im not gonna judge a movie because the turtles have nostrils (which real turtles have) and because their mouth isnt shaped like a beak.

Noses and big lips. WHY? They look so creepy and retarded. Turtles have beaks. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have beaks. That's part of the iconic image. Whenever something becomes 'iconic' then it is the best it can ever get. Why does Hollywood ego keep trying to reinvent the icon? So that they can claim ownership of something that isn't theirs. They can't do better. You think Jonathan Liebesman could create something iconic and generational on his own?

It's almost like the studio is embarassed with the turtles design and are trying to keep them out of the trailer. I'm indifferent until I see more footage. I will say that watching CGI ninja fighting won't be all that exciting compared to the actual fights done by people in costumes in the other movies.

Bullshit...Godzilla is a threat that gets more frightening the less you show of him in the trailer. The turtles on the other hand are the main characters of the movie!! So to not show them is pretty damn stupid. And the trailer proves it...

I expect this to go over with me and others like Man of Steel. I have the box sets of all the original TMNT and Superman movies, people will cling to the past films and never get passed it. I'll love it because while I love the films and always will, that time has passed and I want something new. Looks good so far to me.

I've gotta say, the noses(beaks) aside, there are other reasons that have me more worried about this movie. It really doesnt come off to me in general that the creators are actual fans of the series. Donatello has glasses over his mask, and goggles on his head? Michaelangelo is wearing a puka shell necklace? Come on.

On top of that, the talent behind the movie doesnt inspire confidence at all. I am the first to support an out of the box casting decision, if they can do a good job. So I

On top of that, the talent behind the movie doesnt inspire confidence at all. I am the first to support an out of the box casting decision, if they can do a good job. So I wont hate on Will Fichtner as Shredder, because he is an amazing actor in almost everything he does. But Megan Fox has never really done a good job in anything that I can think of. Obviously the actors that are playing the turtles havent all done a great job if they brought in Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub last minute to do the voices. Whoopi Goldberg? Whooptie-doo..... And for all you folks who wanna give Michael Bay a pass, lets focus for a second on our actual director Jonathan Liebesman, whos film repertoire consists of Wrath of the Titans and Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. So we basically have a director with a history of shitting on franchises that we love. Best of luck to the team behind this movie, because it seems like they really need it.

I'll make judgement

after I seee this film, But I'm still sticking by my word and saying the turtles look like shit. I'm sorry. But for the looks of shredder and splinter I think they look pretty solid. But I will see this. I'm a huge turtle fan.

Between a storyline that copies the same structure as the amazing Spider-Man and the new turtle look, I've lost all faith in this reboot. I thought bay was gonna make a comeback after pain and gain. I guess not

Bay isn't directing this... He is just producing. Same with the horrible NoES and F13th remakes from Bays company. You can't blame Bay for everything. Sure he is horrible, but its not his fault alone.

How is this a new trailer when its the exact same with a few seconds more new footage. Anyways, it doesn't look as bad as everyone is making it out to be. I see hints throughout that they've kept the same vibe from the first film in the 80's, but the final quality of the film has me worried. Feel it won't be anymore over a 5 or 6 out of 10 on Joblo review. Also, why isn't Cory Feldman voicing Donatello??

I would forgive all of it...

..all of it. If it was titled "Michael Bays Ninja Turtles". Just so people don't get confused with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I watch this and all I see is MB's very original and different look. You got the MB color schemes, MB actors, MB jokes, MB explosions. There is just MB, no TMNT.
Take it frum me, Iam and alcoholic? ;D

I'm sure the film will be fun, but I'm not expecting this to be better then the original....at all. If it can duplicate the same tone, spirit, and attitude of the original film, then I would consider that a job well done.

And after this trailer, I'm convinced William Fichtner would have made an awesome Norman Osborne/Green Goblin in the new Amazing Spider Man films.

Do not wish any bad luck on the film, but everything I've seen from the film does not make me want to see it. Not a fan of the look of the turtles and film has that "commercial" Michael Bay look. To each their own.

They look more 90s than they did in the 90s. Really disturbing and unsettling. I think the Turtles should look cool but on some level, they should also look cute. Well, maybe "endearing" is a better way. These guys just look completely frightening.

WTF do you people want? An Oscar movie? People bitch about everything. Its a movie about ninja fighting turtles. Sit back , have fun & chill. It looks like fun. The originals were fun but stop acting as if they made cinema history. I enjoyed them but it's not like it's going to take universes coming together to top them!
