Howdy ladies and gents I return once again to relay upon you some new film news! Now it has been a little while since the last the last bit of news surrounding the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, however it seems like there may be hope for some new visual material in the near-future. The following information comes from ComicBookMovie:
“Producer Galen Walker just confirmed via his Facebook page that we’d be getting our first look at the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in action fairly soon when the trailer debuts with Captain America: The Winter Soldier in April.
“Ok-Cool Beans folks! the new “Ninja Turtles” Teaser will make it’s debut in front of the New Captain America Movie – April 4th. We are ready and prepared for lift off! Been a long haul.”
It’s not very often we’d get a first trailer for a movie just four months before it’s released, but hopefully we’ll at least get a few stills etc in the meantime. There’s actually still no official synopsis for the reboot either! But here’s the cast details.
TMNT is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans), and produced by Michael Bay. The script was written by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec, based on characters created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. The cast includes: Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Danny Woodburn as Splinter, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Will Arnett as Vernon and William Fichtner as Shredder. It will hit theaters August 8, 2014.”
So after all this time we’re actually gonna get some visual footage on the new TMNT film? Nice. Sign me up. TMNT is the last of the big summer films that has yet to be seen properly with no official posters, photos or trailers. Even Guardians of the Galaxy has recently gone on overdrive to get itself out there to the public and it is out just a little earlier than this film. I will be curious to see what kind of look the film will go for, whether it will be comedic, dark or a blending of the two like in the 90’s films or if it’ll take more inspiration from the comics. Either way this film needs to be seen and I can’t wait for a teaser trailer because those set photos have been very questionable in content.
