The first trailer for Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) was released yesterday.
The trailer gives hints at the new TMNT origins. Unlike previous versions of the characters, who were the result of an accident, the trailer leads viewers to believe that the TMNT were created on on purpose. Other changes to Michael Bays TMNT include the Shredder no longer being a Japanese ninja, but rather an American businessman, and April O’Neil’s father having something to do with the creation of the Ninja Turtles.
The TMNT have also been redesigned for the new movie. Michael Bay’s TMNT are much taller and more bulky than previous versions of the characters, but they still seem to retain their goofy sense of humor.
The TMNT movie will hit theaters on August 8, 2014.
