It’s Turtle Time! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles First Trailer Released

The trailer for Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie has arrived, showing your favorite pizza-eating superheroes as they attempt to save New York City with the help of Megan Fox and plenty of CGI

At long last, the trailer for Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie has arrived. Because it’s a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, there are mutant turtles that are teenagers and ninjas, and because it’s a Michael Bay movie, there are lots of explosions, abundant CGI and Megan Fox.

There’s not a whole lot else to glean from the trailer (it’s just one minute and 30 seconds, rather than the traditional two minutes and 30 seconds) other than that Times Square will be mostly destroyed and that William Fichtner will be heavily involved. Also, the titular characters — who are glimpsed only briefly — seem somewhat larger and more intimidating than they did in previous live-action versions of TMNT.

The film is currently slated for an August 8 U.S. release.
