The Ninjabot

It’s probably got 5% new footage in it, but this new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer does feature a couple of new glimpses at the title characters and their nemesis, The Shredder (William Fichtner).  Additionally, Paramount has released a new image that shows off a new look at the film’s very human and super boring by comparison characters, Vernon Fenwick (Will Arnett) and April O’Neil (Megan Fox).  I’d still like to see a bit more in the way of footage and storyline before I make a final decision one way or the other on this film, but it’s looking surprisingly entertaining so far.

The film stars Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Noel Fisher, and Danny Woodburn, with Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub voicing Leonardo and Splinter respectively, and opens August 8th.  

Here’s the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer, followed by the new image of Arnett and Fox:


Official synopsis:
