This new TV Spot for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES gives you a glimmer of Splinter

1 min read


On the surface, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has all the right characters. You’ve got the Turtles themselves, William Fichtner’s Shredder and a badly cast April O’Neil. What’s missing? A certain sensei, who trains the half-shell heroes to be ninjas. I’m talking about Splinter of course. And it looks like he’ll also be kicking ass in the new movie.

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 O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

Samurai sword, gi and a totally cute little beard? Check, check and check! Splinter has always been a constant in the Turtles franchise, and the latest version offers a peak at another great design that is far more rat than man. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is out later this year, directed by Jonathan Liebesman.
