So, what do you guys think? I'm still weirded out that April O' Neil is Megan Fox but... other than that the actual turtle designs look pretty great. I'm tentatively excited about this now. At least Bay came back from his initial idea to make them all aliens or whatever god awful idea he initially had. I'm hoping we'll get some more trailers showing the turtles interacting with each other and hopefully showing Splinter off if he is even a character in this version. So hey... it could have been worse...right?

It doesn't look nearly as bad as I'd anticipated. I'll probably watch it.

I... don't know. I really don't know. I'd like to believe that Bay can make a fun if somewhat campy movie with a positive message about friendship and family ties, but knowing Bay's filmography it'll probably wind up being jaded, cynical, and nihilistic.

Don't get me wrong, Bay can do those three things wonderfully (look at Pain and Gain), but those attributes absolutely do not a good Ninja Turtles movie make.

I think I'm going to skip this one. Wait until Michael Bay makes something more akin to Pain & Gain. Now THAT was a great Michael Bay movie!

Which Ninja Turtle is going to be the racist one?

THIS WAS THE NOBLE IDEA THAT YOUR FATHER AND I EMBARKED UPON; THE CREATION OF MASSIVE HUMANOID CRIME-FIGHTING TURTLES.

Also, she could be wearing like 20 more yellow jackets and I still wouldn't really get any April O'Neil vibe from Megan Fox. Apparently Mae Whitman is voicing April in a current TMNT show? I could see her being a good live-action April too. ("...Her?") Not that you'd ever see casting like that in a Michael Bay movie.

I'm not totally put off by this trailer, but I'm not hugely filled with confidence either.

Will Arnett was born to play Vernon Fenwick. He is the only reason I want to see this at all.

Jonathan Liebesman is directing this. Bay is just producing, I'm sure his influence over the movie isn't small, but people are making it sound like he's writing, directing, and starring in this thing.

I can't say I've loved everything I've seen so far, but I'll probably watch it because it's TMNT.

This... bothers me. A great deal.

Sure, I liked Transformers as a kid - who doesn't love giant robots? - but the Turtles? Man. I don't think I could take the Turtles getting the ghetto twins treatment. As a matter of fact I know I can't. He can ruin as many franchises from my childhood as he wants, but please, Mother of God, not the Turtles.

I like the Turtle designs, if this isn't terrible then maybe I'll watch it.

Explosions? Check. Creepy as fuck Turtles? Check. Megan Fox once again proving she can't act? Check.Yup, this is Teenage Michael Bay Turtles.

It doesn't look nearly as bad as I thought it would, but this is just a trailer. I'm still betting the movie will suck.

I find it grievously difficult to get excited for this considering the current TV show absolutely nails everything cool about the franchise. Sincerity and love for the characters pour out of every episode. How can this possibly match up?

Okay braced and ready, I'm going in!

The turtles are creepy looking. Megan Fox as plucky reporter April O'Neil? Not buying that bill of goods. If Bay were directing he'd turn one of the turtles into a gay Puerto Rican for "comedy.".

I don't know. It looks kinda bad. It looks like the Christopher Nolan Batman films...with human-sized ninja turtles.

I hate the turtle design, it's to much of the "dark, ominous, and brooding" crap seemingly everything needs to be these days. And maybe it is because I'm getting older but couldn't the cast some one that is a little older and less "sexy" then Megan Fox? At least they'd have a chance of finding someone who can actually act. I will hope that they can make a decent movie but I will definitely be in the "wait and see" camp.

I just don't understand how these decisions even get made. How, in a world where we have Ken Watanabe, does a casting director even look at William Fichtner.

Oh well, that TV show is really damn good.

Michael Bay + reboot + CGI = bullshit. It's a scientific fact. And yet this trailer was actually pretty damn good.

With that in mind, if they pull this off, I'm pretty sure the space-time continuum will fold in on itself.

too early to say one way or other just from that trailer, it doesn't give off the impression of being immediately dismissable, but I will wait until we see a bit more.

I've tried to keep my expectations pretty low since I found out Bay was attached to this one. After watching the trailer, my interest has raised some. Either way, I'm still going to go see this movie because I'm still a big TMNT fan.

I kind of liked that first Transformers movie when it came out, but I didn't have any particular fondness for that franchise. TMNT however was my childhood, and I don't really like what I see there. Especially the turtle designs.

All that said, I gave up having any faith whatsoever in Michael Bay after watching The Rock.

Huh? The Rock is amazing. One of the best action movies of the 90s. If you were going to lose faith in Michael Bay, the appropriate time to do it would be later on after seeing more of his films and realising that he literally only has like three tricks in his bag:

  1. Helicopters fly past a setting sun
  2. Character stands up as the camera swoops 360 around them. SHIT JUST GOT REAL moment.
  3. Racism.

I was Adamant about remaining highly cynical of this film...

but that "its just a mask" bit at the end still made me chuckle.

Shit...

There are things about this movie that I like, and things I dislike.

I will probably end up watching it. I just have to know for myself.

Alright...it doesn't look terrible. I dunno about the turtles faces, Mikey looks sorta weird. I'm not gonna totally write this off yet though. For me it's gonna come down to the Turtles interacting with each other. They don't really show any of that in the trailer so yeah.

Michelangelo is still Michelangelo and got me to chuckle at the end, and hearing Donnie(?) yell "batter up!" while tossing Leo put most doubts I had to rest. Still excited and will mos def check it out.

Ugh, the turtles look like melted shreks. This looks not too good. The only thing it has going for it is William Fichtner as the shredder, at least for me.

Agreed! The design of the Turtles is a nightmare.

I lost faith in Michael Bay's movies that came after The Rock (which I still think is a decent film) until seeing Pain & Gain. While not a near perfect film, it had undeniable charm.

I was genuinely excited to see this trailer after seeing Pain & Gain. Know it's just a trailer, but have nothing but bad feelings about this movie now. Megan Fox is not a good actress. She does not nor could ever likely carry April's persona accurately. Wish there wasn't so much emphasis on 3d modeling/animation yet used a more realistic approach like Jim Henson's Creature Shop did for the original movies. Still after all this, must admit I'm still somewhat excited to see how Shredder pans out in the film.

Given how "amazing" the humor in Michael bay movies usually is, i'm going to say this is going to be awful.

It turns out those hideous toys I saw recently are pretty accurate to what they look like in the movie. Jonathan Liebesman is a pretty poor director that is good at making huge CGI things make other huge CGI things break apart, but without any of the style Bay has. I quite liked Battle Los Angeles the first time I saw it, upon a second viewing I realised it's all noise without any substance or humour.

I Love the Turtles, they're possibly the only thing from my childhood that makes me whine irrationally. I Loved TMNT, it got the tone perfect and the new cartoon is a ton of fun. I'm willing to wait and see if it turns out ok. I won't instantly cry about the designs like some did about flames on Optimus Prime. But as reveals go, this has left a bad taste in my mouth.

I do love William Fichtner though

It almost looks entirely like a Michael Bay movie. I think that the only thing it's missing is Megan Fox in some sort of skimpy outfit (though I'm sure that's in the movie somewhere.)

Which Ninja Turtle is going to be the racist one?

I got my money on Michelangelo, he will say some embarrassing tired urban lingo that nobody uses anymore.

It doesn't look nearly as bad as I'd anticipated. I'll probably watch it.

That last bit did make me chuckle at the end. I just don't know how the explosions slow mo nature of Michael bay will work for a movie that should have high marks in its fighting choreograph.
