As you well know from regular reading of this blog, I like the TMNT franchise, well parts of it, always have since the days of the old palladium RPG (which is how I got into it in the first place) So other turtles fans will be pleased to hear that the new movie is almost upon us.
Again, we’re faced with yet another Hollywood reboot, this time from Michael Bay of the recent Transformers movies (Yeah the terrible ones, gimme the cartoon anyday and that was crap!) so it could be good or bad depending on how you look at it.
Plus side, it’s got Megan Fox in it, and I’d watch most things with her in them, not for artistic merit or the story, just because she is fine! Another plus, it’s the turtles, so I’ll watch it anyway!
As you can see from the teaser trailer, they aren’t giving too much away, but apparently they are still finishing post production stuff, FX and all that, so it might well differ from the snippets in the clip.
The franchise has long had a history of reinventing itself, so the reboot is nothing new (Have you seen the new animated series?) so expect the details to change, but the core ideas stay more or less the same I imagine.
