The crime-fighting heroes in half-shells may not be roundhouse-kicking into theaters for another three months, but we were treated to up-close-and-personal looks at Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo and Raphael with a brand-new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” trailer on Wednesday (April 30).
The new clip is similar to the first one in story structure and tone, but after the montage of the S.W.A.T. team assembling, helicopter chases and towers falling, the ass-kicking amphibians spring into action in a New York subway station, while Megan Fox’s April O’Neil captures everything on her camera phone.
All four of our pizza-loving heroes get close-ups, skateboarding, preparing to fight and, of course, tying on masks. There’s also an adrenaline-rush of a snow-skiing scene, with our heroes zipping down the mountain at warp speed before crashing into a military Humvee.
From the looks of the trailer, this reboot will feature that signature “TMNT” humor that fanboys have grown to love.
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” flips, kicks and punches its way into theaters on August 8.
