A New Trailer For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arrives....And It's Actually Good???
There's a really good chance this whole thing ends up becoming a nonsensical cashgrab, and I wish it wasn't so spoilery, but otherwise, this is actually a great trailer. The action sequences look like they'll be coherent and not suffer from shaky-cam, the dynamic between the turtles looks fun and the CGI looks surprisingly polished. Much to my surprise, this new Ninja Turtles movie is starting to look like a real winner and I can't wait to see how it turns out.
One final question to ponder; whose voicing the other three turtles? They got relatively unknown people to do the motion-capture for Splinter and the turtles on set, and until the first trailer came out it was assumed they would be voicing the creatures as well. However, shortly after the first trailer was released, it was announced Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub would be voicing Leonardo and Splinter respectively. Naturally, I assume three more celebrities will be voicing the crime fighting reptiles, but with a month a half to go, no further news on the subject has been given. If I may suggest two, get Aziz Ansari to voice Donatello and Jason Statham to voice Raphael. They'd fit those two characters perfectly!
