Raise some shell in the final trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

TMNT

Listen, 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie wasn’t exactly good. But there’s a certain grace in knowing that your film is kind of stupid and then just taking that ball and running with it to an illogical conclusion. Man, I actually adore that first film. The Turtles looked like they’d be mutated with a Jacob Zuma brand of mutagen, the Shredder had a badass streak and a suit of armour that could cut Iron Man to ribbons and Will Arnett had just right amount of screen presence for the obligatory comic relief sections.

Hell, even if the rampant lobbying of angry fans made a bizarre story even more nonsensical by forcing William Fichtner’s character to no longer be the infamous TMNT villain, the story somehow still worked on a stupid level. Like I said, not a good movie, but a terrific bad movie. There’s a certain charm in all of that.

And here we come full circle, to the first sequel. Which looks even more ludicrous than the first flick, thanks to the inclusion of Bebop and Rocksteady. And the Krang. And the mother-lovin’ Technodrome from Dimension X. Yes, I am loving every second of this so far. NO! SLEEP! UNTIL BROOKLYN!

Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael return to cinemas this summer to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After supervillain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world.

As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.

I’m sort of excited to see what the new Shredder looks like in his proper armour in this sequel. Now, we’ve also got Steve Amell’s effortless charm being funneled into the ice hockey-obsessed vigilante Casey Jones and even more brotherly love between the four half-shell heroes. Guys…I think we might have a good bad good Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie on our hands.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows strikes back on June 3.

  1. Why do these dudes look like the steroid-infused knuckle-heads from WWE?

    They’re not the Turtles any more. They’re just Dave Batista and Dwayne Johnson clones.

      Also pants? Did Michael Bay want to show turtle tools but Nickelodeon countered?

            I went outside? It was school mornings I watched TV. But I’m no longer a kid (sadly), and now I choose to not poison my mind with that drivel.

            Instead I’m on the internet, the window to all stupid. Meh, there’s also games here, so I’ll deal.

            But I was talking about the TMNT animted series, from back then. Anyway. It was cool.
            The internet has just replaced tv anyway. I bought a tv the other day. Got a free DSTV decoder and then asked the guy what I’m supposed to do with it. I don’t even have cables in my house to connect my tv to anything but power and my pc. Which also feels kind of idiotic that I still have to pay for a tv license.

            I pay for mine because my mom uses it. I think my TV was last used in December when my mom and sister came down to visit. They watched a DVD. I don’t have an aerial.

            The internet is only drivel because of people like Ryanza. There is a lot that’s worth a person’s time on the internet.

    The first movie sucked, it was everything I expected from a Michael Bay production. This movie wont be any different, it will be pointless, plotless and it will have tons & tons of things blowing up. Also, Steve Amell looks like Arrow just with a hockey mask,at least grow his hair out.

    For months I heard people complain about the first TMNT.

    I saw it. I had fun, and I felt like they nailed the Turtles’ personalities, even if some of the finer details were unnecessarily changed.

    I ended up seeing it three times. Guessing that’ll happen again.
