Ever since the film reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was announced fans have been torn in opinion of the film, however, most fans will admit that they will reserve judgement until they see the films first trailer.
We learned recently that the first trailer will be premiering alongside Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and online around that time as well, but now it seems a recent forum may have gotten a first description of that trailer:
>Music starts up around here. It’s only drums, but it’s badass. It starts out slow, but gets much faster.
>We see a shot of Mikey and Donatello walking in the sewers, Don with his bowstaff resting on his shoulder.
>We hear the voice again “They cannot hide from us.”
>A group of foot clan soldiers walk through the sewers with their rifles trained forward.
>”I will exterminate them…every last one” (This sounded fucking scary, the voice is awesome. It sounded pretty cliche, but the voice just totally makes it believable.)
>Finally, we see him: The Shredder. He steps out of shadows and looks forward. He throws his arm downward and two blades pop out of his wrist armor.
>We get our montage here. From what I can remember, we get to see Raphael chasing what I’m pretty sure is Karai on a rooftop, Will Arnett’s character grinning at April inside her office, the turtle van, Baxter Stockman (pre mutation), Leo dueling foot soldiers in the middle of some high tech room, a motorcycle landing on top of a semi truck in the middle of a snowy forest during a chase, and the turtles captured from the set video that was released back in august. There’s more, I just can’t remember.
>During the montage it says “HEROES” “IN” “A” “HALFSHELL” in between shots.
>Finally, we get our title card. “TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES” and “SUMMER”
Overall, I loved it. My description doesn’t do it justice at all, it was a really, really great trailer. I was surprised there was no one liner from Mikey at the end or something. I didn’t really like the whole “Heroes in a halfshell” being put in there, it seemed…dated? Not sure.
Overall rating? solid 8/10
Hopefully if that description is true fans will be pleased with the reboot, because that trailer sounds really awesome.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently set for an Aug 8th 2014 release date.
