Help Unlock New TMNT Posters and a Trailer

Come support your favorite turtle and it'll unlock new content!

The answer may change from time to time, but odds are you have a favorite turtle if you're into the heroes in a half shell. Well, Paramount is now calling on fans to show their support for their top turtle! The studio wants you to take to Twitter and use the following hashtags to support your favorite mutant:

#TeamLeonardo

#TeamMichelangelo

#TeamRaphael

#TeamDonatello

Once a character receives a certain amount of votes, their new poster will be unlocked. And, once all of the posters are unlocked, we'll get a brand new trailer. So, what are you waiting for? Go give your number one turtle some love! You can also vote by going to this site.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8 and is directed by Jonathan Liebesman.

@jonny_anonymous: 1. havent seen the movie yet so cant judge. 2. i love megan fox, she never did me any harm :)

Isn't it a touch gross to be promoting what is basically just a viral marketing campaign for a movie on this site?

Do you really think that they won't release these posters and video content if they don't meet these numbers before the release date? They'll be released regardless.

Edited by k4tzm4n

@foxxfireart: Obviously, they'd release the content in due time, but where's the harm if people want to have a little fun and praise their favorite turtle?

Leonardo is half way, Mikey is second and Raph is 3rd.... BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Posted by space4rentt

Looks like clicking on the pictures on the website, then Xing out of the twitter pop-up, might still count the vote. Or at least it says that my vote has been counted.

Haha This 110%. And how can you be stealthy when there's Michael Bay explosions going on around you? "Michael Bay" and "Ninja" are two words that just don't go together- like "military" & "intelligence".

Batman is pretty huge.

@ccraft: Not like Raph- Raph looks like a bull in a China shop in this movie. I love the Turtles with all my heart- watched them in every incarnation, read every comic incarnation, have a bunch of collectibles/t-shirts- but this movie is gonna be a train wreck. I have less than zero faith in Michael Bay.

Go, Team Mikey!

I share your concerns about their size, but there's been hints of a focus on stealth in one or two of the trailers (the subway scene seems to imply the foot guys are being attacked without being aware of what's going on). I'm not the biggest fan of the new design, but I'm still going to do my best to go into this one with an open mind and see how they explain/utilize these changes.

Yeah Bats is no where near as big Raphael, but still, they've shown some agility and stealth in the previous trailers. One of the things about the TMNT is they go out in NY, fight bad guys, without being seen or caught, I'm sure that will more or less the same in the movies.

I actually think they look good that big, and I like there designs, I do wish Mikey was a bit slimmer. Splinter looks perfect, Shredder looks awesome, a bit overdone, but still awesome. But this is just my opinion.

@w0nd: He looks cool with all those gadgets lol, if all that junk doesn't serve a purpose, that would be lame.

Cool

@ccraft: I'm interested in the other ones, I voted for Raph myself, glad Leo is at least getting some love.

Posted by ccraft

@ninjablade09: I've been waiting for clearer pics of these turtles, especially Raph, to use as an avatar. It's cool Leo pic was released first.

Edited by Ninjablade09

@ccraft: Definitely, be funny if it just so happened to be released by the Turtle's ages. Leo, Raph, Donnie, then Mikey.

Posted by RoTheKid

Hmm...not really sure how I feel about this contest. Will just keep a close eye on it.

Posted by ccraft
Edited by ccraft

Mikey looks amazing, I'm pretty hyped now, fingers crossed for Raphael.

Edited by Ninjablade09

Mikey's is nice, glad that he has a different background, and it's not the same as Leo's.

@ccraft: I'm going to guess as each poster released it'll be your avatar for a little bit :P

Posted by ccraft

@ninjablade09: lol maybe... If Raph's is any good I'll probably make it my avatar (since he's my favorite of the 4), idk why but Mikey always makes the best avatars.

T-U-R-T-L-E (power)

Posted by Ninjablade09

@ccraft: lol, and it changed again! :P Yeah, the Mikey one looked fun and light hearted.

Posted by ccraft

@ninjablade09: Yeah it looks great, best picture of him so far. I really hope we get to hear the rest of the turtles voices in the new trailer.

Posted by Ninjablade09

@ccraft: Same, I'm interested in how Leo sounds, seeing he's the only one we haven't heard.

Edited by JonSmith

What delicious feedback it would be if it took two or three months or so to release everything because so few people give a s*** or want to see anything about this movie.

It won't be, but maybe it'd send a message.

Also: Why does Michaelangelo look like an overweight Samoan to me? Is it the beads? It might be the beads.

Posted by ccraft

@ninjablade09: I'm kinda of nervous because his voice actor is Johnny Knoxville. Raphael voice actor is Alan Ritchson, he sounds just like Nolan North imo, which is perfect.

Posted by Ninjablade09

@ccraft: Yeah. North was perfect as Raph in the 2007 TMNT. Which is funny because that same year Transformers 1 came out kick starting the franchise while TMNT was trying to revive it. 7 years later TMNt 2014 is kick starting a new franchise while Transformers is getting back on track starting a new trilogy.

Posted by Beast_in_the_Shadows

I'm kind of astounded at how the more they show us these turtles, the worse they look. I mean now it's clear the the front and back of their shells aren't even connected anymore and Mikey's supper skinny fingers look really weird coming off of those thick, beefy arms. Oh well, just a few months and then hopefully this movie can slip off into obscurity along with Venus and the Out of Their Shells tour.

Posted by ccraft

@ninjablade09: Good point, this tmnt movie will at least make a decent profit, enough to secure a few sequels at least.

Posted by Ninjablade09

@ccraft: I'm think a good 600-700mi;. Which is good, and while I'm not sold on this movie yet, I'm hoping for the best. Right now my driving force is Will Arnet.

Edited by ccraft

@ninjablade09: the TMNT trailers so far haven't really felt "TMNT-ish" they've barely shown the turtles, and only Mikey has spoke more than one line. The tmnt "brothers" trailer was decent because it talked about family. Hopefully this tmnt trailer will be better.

I loved the 1990 TMNT film, it was the perfect tmnt film.

So far the 2014 version looks like it has potential, Splinter vs Shredder, Splinter looks perfect, Shredder looks cool, I like all of the designs for the tmnt.

Megan Fox isn't really a big disappointment, I heard they won't be making April sexualized so that's a plus.

I agree with what was said about the '90s TMNT film- the first one- it was perfect. It captured the grittiness from the Mirage comics, the fun stuff from the cartoons, and for the time the Turtles looked excellent, and even stand up well today. The way Shredder looked & sounded was great, and Jim Henson shop did a good job on Splinter(though I prefer a more active, kick-butt Splinter like we see in the newer comics & the animated show.) And Elias Koteas as Casey Jones? Man, you can't beat that! He WAS Casey Jones and added some more humor and flair to the movie.
