Watch a Preview of the First 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Trailer [Updated]

Check out the Turtles in action and the official plot synopsis is revealed, too! Now updated with the FULL trailer!

We've been waiting for months to see something official from the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Toys and designs have been leaked, but we haven't seen any actual footage. Well, that changes today, dudes and dudettes. The first official trailer will be attached to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and The Today Show debuted a preview of it this morning.

Here's the movie's synopsis:

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

So, what do you think, Viners? Are you excited and will go opening weekend? Curious and waiting to see more? Or do you have no desire whatsoever to check it out? Let us know below.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8th.

Those are some large turtles.

That was awesome right until the turtles came on.

Um, yeah, that didn't do anything for me either way. I still don't know.

Only Michael Bay can make a movie where mutant turtles cause so much destruction to a car...

My expectations are pretty low, but I do hope the movie is good.

this is the cbm order I would rank them:

1xmen

2spiderman

3guardians

4captain america

5ninja turtles

But honestly, I will probably just buy son of batman and season 2 of arrow and save my movie money.

Ugh my gut feelings and suspicions about this film were all confirmed within 36 seconds. Sucks that this was the case but it was to be expected in all honesty. Maybe the full trailer will somehow make things better but I'm doubting that.

I don't know about this movie as of yet. Can't form a strong opinion one way or the other.

I don't care for their deigns. I don't like that they are apparently 6 and 1/2 feet tall and wear tattered clothing, just seems kind of unnecessary. Thats just picking nits though.

I trust it will be good, it's hard to mess up Ninja Turtles. If you make it serious and mature, it matches up with the original interpretation, if you make it ridiculous and silly then it fits with a bunch of their other incarnations. It's really hard to make a bad movie about TMNT

*Thinks of Ninja Turtles 3*

I seem to be the only one mildly excited for this. I mean it cant be any worse than the old ones can it?

Posted by Cloakx14

i'll give this movie a shot & check this out.

Edited by GodDamnIronMan

It looks Michael Bay-ed....

Actually not bad from the trailer.

Posted by Kal'smahboi

I thought it looked great. I mean, it's extremely preliminary, but I'm interested.

looks pretty solid but i need more honestly to give a full decision if i will see it or not

Edited by TheAcidSkull

doesn't look that bad actually.

Now if only april wasn't played by Megan Fox, then my excitement would be greater.

Edited by Master_Thief

ummmmmmmmm huh

Why

What

HUH???

Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse

The full trailer was much better IMO, at least up until the mask joke.

Posted by Sawcesome

I'm still gonna go see it opening day since it's the TMNT, but...I dunno. I just feel like this is an attempt at another blockbuster, and not an actual TMNT film.

Or something like that.

yea thats my only small complaint really is fox. i will say the shredder armor looks bad ass as do the turtles

Edited by mattydeNero

I get it. I just don't know about seven-foot turtles. Michelangelo's characteristics are there for sure. But the Turtles are gigantic. My expectations--like many--are not very high for the newest film. (Plus, the "We've been waiting for you, Miss O'Neal," from the original film's teaser is burned in my memory.)

It's a different market now. Back in the late 80's/early 90's, the Turtles were a hot commodity. I don't believe the demand for a new Turtles film is there at this point in time. (Then again, I don't watch much Nickelodeon.)

A lot of websites/bloggers shot the film down when first seeing the actors in their CG suits. I was skeptical but wanted to see the finished product. The trailer leaves me with doubts, but I this film has my money already. I loved the Turtles as a 10 year old. I'll be interested to see how this new tale turns out.

Hmmm interesting.

@lifeboy: Have fun cuz I'm seeing all five.

Not so good turtles way to big LAME

Posted by thatthomclancy

I just want to know who saw those faces and said "You know what, that looks really cool and we should totally go with that!" because that person should be shunned. Shunned, I say!

Edited by iaconpoint

Saw another movie with Megan fox the other day: terrible...

Posted by Master_Thief

OK WHY ARE THEY 6 FEET TALL

how can you be a ninja when your six feet tall

Although i liked the ending with Mikey that was funny

Posted by Ostyo

Not bad, it has pontenial. Damn Megan Fox though... -_-

Yeah. She's hot but I can't take her seriously.

I was thinking the same thing!

Edited by danhimself

I don't know...maybe I'm just looking for a reason to hate this...but why are they so huge!?

Posted by Black_Claw

Megan Fox? *sighs*

Edited by SanoHibiki

Movie with Megan Fox…

I’ll pass that.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

The trailer isn't that bad except how can the turtles be ninjas when they are like mini-Hulks? Also boooo Megan Fox you suuuuuck.

Edited by ccraft

Wow... Okay it didn't blow my mind or anything, but that was cool. The short Donnie scene looked cool, Leonardo looked extremely cool until Mikey had to ruin it :P The face isn't that bad, it looks similarly shaped to the comics but with 3D/CGI. Lets just hope they keep that mask on lol.

I really don't like the idea of Shredder being a "good guy", but it seems like he's only pretending to be, which is better... Those were Shredder's foot soldiers wrecking up NYC, maybe he ordered them to cause chaos so he could trick April's father into creating super soldiers for his army.

Shredder having a hand in creating the turtles could be something that leads him to create more mutants, I really really really hope we see Slash, Bebop and Rocksteady. In later films of course...

7.5/10

@k4tzm4n: Let's hear it from the man himself. What do you think of the trailer Gregg?

I'm not excited, but I am interested. I like the look of the turtles, but damn, they're tall. The action looks good. The tone seems good. But its an action teaser so......

Edited by w0nd

It's funny all these declarations were made how they would stay true to the origins and what not, which clearly isn't the case. That's fine, but they always do this, they always say that but then change it haha. Also the whole" we aren't naming it teenage mutant ninja turtle" was thrown out the window too i guess. Stuck with the teenage bit.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

@ostyo: He was a lot bigger than Megan Fox

Also notice how they didn't even advertise the director?
