In addition to releasing a new TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction, Paramount also released a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV spot during tonight’s MTV Movie Awards (MTV and Paramount are both part of the big, happy Viacom family). This TV spot emphasizes the importance of brotherhood and “nothing is as strong as family,” especially when your family consists of giant, mutated turtles and a rat. Speaking of which, this TV spot also provides a brief look at the turtles’ sensei, Splinter (who will be voiced by Tony Shalhoub).
The film also stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and William Fichtner with Johnny Knoxville as the voice of Leonardo. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.
Here’s the synopsis for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:
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.
