‘Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’ Final Trailer – Hey, At Least it Looks Like a Ninja Turtles Movie

As a child of the 90s who grew up in the thick of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ utter dominance of pop culture back in the day, the first live action TMNT movie from producer Michael Bay was a pretty painful experience for me. If it wasn’t the horrendous character designs, plot that stole elements from about a dozen other recent blockbusters, the fact that the Turtles seemed like supporting characters in their own movie put it firmly in Transformers territory, a firm kick to the groin for a franchise I genuinely treasure. So when news came out that a sequel was on the way, I sighed to myself and girded my loins.

And yet…….the trailers started to come out, with looks at the movie versions of Bebop, Rocksteady, Krang and the new Shredder and something odd happened. They all, more or less, looked like what they were supposed to look like. Weird, right? Bebop and Rocksteady look recognizeably like Bebop and Rocksteady. Same with Shredder, same with Krang. And then the seed was planted: What if, somehow, this movie isn’t terrible? Is it some kind of Stockholm Syndrome? Did the previous movie set the bar so low that something as basic as the characters looking like they’re supposed to can be seen as evidence of an improvement? Who knows? But like a lot of people, the trailers for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows has me cautiously optimistic. Extremely cautiously, mind. But still, there’s a little nugget of hope in there that this may actually been the Ninja Turtles movie we wanted the first time around. Am I crazy? Maybe….but sometimes crazy works.

Check out the new Final Trailer below and let me know if you think that tiny bit of hope is misplaced.
