In this year’s annual CINEMACON, a yearly convention for theater owners, convention goers were able to view the first glimpse of Michael Bay’s trailer for the new TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.  The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year but there has been little and even close to no information released about this movie until now.

Entertainment website, BADASS DIGEST was among the attendees of CinemaCon and here’s what they have to say about the trailer:

“At first the trailer hides the turtles – there’s voice over from William Fichtner’s Shredder explaining the city has gone to shit. We see criminals with automatic weapons and buildings exploding and maybe – just maybe! – it seems like this could be a Hobo With A Shotgun version of a city in decline. It turns out that this version of Shredder hates that crime and violence, and so he started a program to create heroes. That’s juxtaposed with TCRI ooze canisters and experiments. You know, the ooze that created the turtles. The ooze that Shredder made… with April’s dad. Yes, the VO is Shredder telling April he and her dad made the turtles. There’s flash footage of the Turtles fighting guys in the subway and April films on her phone. Then the turtles are revealed… and they’re kind of bad? Meredith Woerner of io9 was sitting next to me and said they looked like babies with penis heads, and she’s right. They’re not turtle-y enough and they’re not anthropomorphized enough. They’re a terrible middle ground. They do crack wise, though. We see the turtles sliding down a mountain and one yells “Batter up!” and is thrown into a Hummer, shell first, crushing the door of the vehicle.”

Now that the trailer had been released in CinemaCon, we might only need to wait a few days or weeks before we get glimpse of this teaser online. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is scheduled to be released on August 8, 2014 and stars Megan Fox,Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, William Fichtner, Will Arnett and Whoopi Goldberg and to be directed by Jonathan Liebesman.
