New Ninja Turtles TV Spot Shows Baby/Adolescent Mutant Ninja Turtles, They Look Pretty OK

Radical! Radical! Radical! Radical!

The new TV spot for the upcoming Ninja Turtles nightmare movie shows what the turtles looked like growing up and gives us our best look at Splinter yet. I... kind of like the way they look as adolescents better than the teenage versions? Hit the jump for some character-specific motion poster action, too.

I Watched Transformers: Age of Extinction So You Don’t Have To: The Official Mary Sue Review (With Gifs!)

Less than meets the eye.

More like Transformers: Age of Ex-STINK-tion, amirite? This review has spoilers, because A) you're probably not going to see this movie anyway, be honest, and B) there's not exactly that much plot to spoil.

New Ninja Turtles Trailer Busts out a Beefed up Shredder and Dubstep to Get the Youth Excited

Dubstep directions: apply liberally. Let kids' support roll in.

Trailer number two for Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles certainly looks like, well, number two—if you know what I mean. I'm still withholding judgment until I actually see the movie, but the out of place dubstep over the action scenes in the second half of the trailer and Turtles 2-esque Super Shredder don't instill me with confidence. There are also some new, full-body character posters after the jump.

Michael Bay Probably Should Never Give Anyone the “Sex Talk” and Here’s Why [Video]

It'll be just like Underworld but with more gratuitous car-washing scenes.

"Honey, little Michael Jr is turning thirteen this year. It seems like he's starting to notice the girls in his class a lot more these days. Don't you think he needs to hear about the... you know, the 'birds and the bees' soon?" Michael Bay's wife will one day say to him.

New Age of Extinction Trailer Introduces Midichlorian-Type Nonsense, More Dinobots

Michael Bay really hates the Tribune Tower.

So far Age of Extinction has looked surprisingly watchable, at least as far as Michael Bay Transformers movies go. This second trailer has gross kissing, more Mark Wahlberg upspeak, and Phantom Menace worthy fake science. Also, Chicago's Tribune Tower gets a second beat down.

That Time the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Were on Oprah

This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fanfilm Trailer Looks Better Than Michael Bay’s

Look sorta like a big turtle... in a trenchcoat... beating the hell outta some guy. You goin' to LaGuardia, right?

Michael Bay reboot aside, this is the Ninja Turtles movie I want to see. Filmmaker and Turtles fan Benjamin Eck's TMNT: Banished hopes to take a serious, dark look at the characters, and if this short teaser is any indication, we're on board.

New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer Shows Shredder, All of the Turtles

Still no turtle snouts, though. That's all I'm asking for.

In case you missed phase 2 of "No! Not my childhood!", here's the newest trailer for Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not a lot of new insights to pick apart here since glimpses of all the Turtles and Shredder are tantalizingly brief, but I'm sure the Internet will find a way.

The Ninja Turtles’ Creator Didn’t Think the Trailer Was So Great, Either

Oh, great. Another angry fanb—oh. Well then.

The new look for the Ninja Turtles has gotten some mixed reviews to put it politely, but fan reactions can be easy for some people to overlook. So, CBM asked Ninja Turtles co-creator Peter Laird what he though about their appearance, which was maybe what the new TMNT production should have done in the first place.

Unsurprisingly, Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles Look Better Without Real Noses

Oh good, I can feel my childhood-induced trauma waning.

After seeing these photoshopped images that removed those terrifying noses from the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters, we have to wonder: what is it about the snouts that make the turtles so much more appealing?

Here’s A Cat Video That Adequately Expresses How I Feel About The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer

When words just aren't enough to get my displeasure across, there's cat videos.

So the trailer for Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is out, and - though our own Dan Van Winkle is cautiously optimistic - I just can't get behind it. How can you take mutant turtles that seriously? And Megan Fox as April O'Neil? I feel like Michael Bay is the husky in this video, like "Love me!" and I'm the cat, having none of it.

The Ninja Turtles trailer was supposed to premiere along with Captain America: The Winter Soldier next week, but it just dropped online, and hoo boy, it's pretty much what we heard it was going to be like. We do get a better look at the Turtles in action than what was talked about before, though.

Awesome! Righteous! Bossa nova! Chevy Nova?

Paramount used CinemaCon to show off some details about their upcoming films, and the teaser for the new, Michael Bay Ninja Turtles movie was among their offerings.

We Finally Got a Full Transformers: Age of Extinction Trailer, and It Actually Looks Kind of Good

Ee ah augh oh ah. —That's my best Transformer noise.

Guys, I'm actually kind of looking forward to this movie now. The trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction either does a great job of pretending this movie is going to have a lot more focus on character and the social implications of giant robots, or this movie might be a Transformers sequel that we can all be excited about.

That's less than two months to start preparing your outraged blog posts

Producer of the TMNT reboot Galen Walker announced today that the teaser trailer will premiere in theaters April 4th before Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Sure, Walker is shamelessly taunting us with a tease for a teaser of a trailer for a movie that won't come out until August, but that doesn't mean we can't be stoked.

That Halloween Costume Wasn’t Accurate, the New Ninja Turtles Look Pretty Good

I give them a 9. A 9.95.

Last week, everyone was pretty upset about the purportedly leaked image of a Michelangelo Halloween costume based on the upcoming Michael Bay Ninja Turtles. Luckily, it seems that the Halloween costume was just a really poor take on a turtle design that is actually pretty OK, and shots of what they should actually look like surfaced today.

This Is What Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles Will Probably Look Like, Shorts and All

I take back everything I ever said about Doctor Who not being able to keep secrets.

I'm not going to lie to you: I saw this image floating around on Tumblr sometime last night with the caption "look, it's Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles," and I thought it was a joke. As it turns out, it's not, and our very first glimpse of the upcoming film has arrived in the form of a crappy Halloween costume—surely a sign of good things to come.
