Paramount Pictures have released an official trailer for their live-action adaptation of classic comic/cartoon series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Check it out below.
The film is directed by Jonathan Liebman (Battle Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans) and produced by Michael Bay – which probably won’t come as a surprise as the trailer definitely has a Transformers vibe about it, and not just because of the presence of Megan Fox as April O’Neil. The cast also includes Will Arnett as April’s ‘wise-cracking cameraman’ Vern Fenwick and William Fichtner as the Turtles’ nemesis Shredder. The turtles themselves are CGI creations filmed using motion capture technology.
The movie will hit cinemas in the USA on 8 August 2014 and the UK on 17 October.
