Here’s the anxiously awaited TMNT 2014 trailer, and boy, it’s fucking weird…
Not necessarily bad! But weird… Judging solely from the this bombastic teaser, the only crystal clear certainty I can discern is that Michael Bay’s involved and brought his menagerie of exploding cars. Again, not saying this movie looks bad, even though I’m sure the internet has a billion and one reasons this film is poised to commit sexual battery on their childhood. Take a look:
My only complaints are minor. Cliched trailer stuff mostly, but then there’s the jarring nature of the Turtle’s design. I’m sure I could get used to the new look, and I really do like that the gang’s essential sense of humor looks to be present. However, there’s still some wacky incongruity I can’t shake when hearing tubular dialog coming from the mouths of mini Hulks that look like they’re backpacking across Europe. Whatever! What say you?
I know the Ninja Turtles are very near and dear to us, especially that first movie, which we heaped praise upon in our epic, two-part expose on Live Action Movies Adapted From Cartoons. Check that out and learn of far greater cinematic atrocities committed towards your favorite shows! Or just get mad, I know that’s part of the fun. Here are my favorite reactions from the internet (SO FAR!)
