WATCH: TMNT Out of the Shadows Trailer

Dear Readers,

Honestly, we’re not quite sure what to think after seeing the new TMNT Out of the Shadows trailer. It all screams Michael Bay to us, with over-the-top explosions, an overly sexualized April O’Neil, and turtles that look more like green-colored Scwarzeneggers than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that we grew up with.

The first full TMNT: Out of the Shadows trailer also gives us our first look at Bebop and Rocksteady, as well as Stephen Amell’s Casey Jones in action. If you’re looking for us to aimlessly praise what we see in the trailer because that’s what a “good media outlet” does, look elsewhere, because we’re leaning more towards being slightly disappointed with this first look at the upcoming TMNT movie. Don’t get us wrong though; we get that this is a new version of Ninja Turtles built for an entirely different audience. But the franchise has taken a turn down a road that just isn’t to our liking.

But if you want to see it, check it out above. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is scheduled for release on June 3, 2016.

Love always,

A Disappointed
