A Peek Through the Hatch: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

It was a rocky road that lead to today’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer. Michael Bay producing? Megan Fox as April O’Neil? William Fichtner as Shredder? The turtles are aliens (this last one didn’t end up happening)?  But here we are with the first trailer for the film.

It looks about as good as you’d expect with Michael Bay involved, with a tone and aesthetic very similar to the Transformers films. I'm not quite sure what accent William Fichtner is going for and Megan Fox looks predictably bland. But the look of the Turtles is okay. The whole “It’s only a mask,” bit is pretty funny.
