The latest reboot Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles debuted its first trailer a few weeks ago, now – we get a look at the three fingered, one weapon teaser posters!
If Transformers wasn’t enough, Michael Bay is bringing another childhood classic back in the big screen for some full-on action.
The 1987 TMNT cartoon which spanned 10 years is one of the most successful cartoons of all time. It was originally created to promote an action figure line from playmates toys and promote it the show definitely did and then some. This cartoon series was in a word, magical. To any kid that grew up in the late 80s and early 90s this show was probably a must watch every Saturday morning!
It wasn’t just fans that grumbled over the facial features of Leo, Donny, Mikey and Raph. Comic creator Peter Laird helped give them their iconic looks isn’t too sure about the “human-like” mouths and noses that they’ll be sporting in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.
Peter Laird recently gave an interview to Comic Book Movie about the Michael Bay-produced reboot, where he was critical in a relatively gentle way..
“…the changes to the basic design of the Turtles seemed to me to fall into the “fixing what is not broken” category. It’s altogether possible that, in the context of this new movie, these designs will work well and not seem so odd, but I still point to what Jim Henson’s “Creature Shop” team did with their rendering of the Turtles in rubber and paint as the best translation (in live action, anyway) of the Turtles as Kevin Eastman and I created them.”
Well, all that’s neatly side-stepped by these new teaser posters, which focus instead on the weapons gripped by each turtle.
The 2014 TMNT movie stars and Megan Fox, Alan Ritchson, William Fichtner, Whoopi Goldberg and Johnny Knoxville hits cinemas in August.
