TMNT Teaser Trailer Will Debut In April Before Captain America

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.

Minimalist Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle LEGOs Are Totally Tubular

There's something spectacular about minimalist LEGO projects. Making something that looks just enough like the inspiration requires a great deal of patience and ability to shed unnecessary parts. Sometimes a flourish is just a flourish, but other times it's what makes the character. Nick Desimone has managed to hit this exact median with his glorious TMNT builds, as can be seen above. Hit the jump to see the rest.

Michael Bay’s TMNT Script Has Leaked, Confirms Worst Fears

After it was announced that Michael Bay would be in charge of a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, and the subsequent "alien" debacle, fans of the franchise were up in arms over what they feared would be a butchering of the source. Well, if the blog TMNT, NOT TANT is to be believed about the authenticity of a script they managed to get their hands on, all those concerns have been validated: The script is particularly awful in depressingly specific ways.

The New “Ninja Turtles” Movie Shut Down by Paramount, Release Date Moved to 2014

I Guess I Can't Argue With That

Probably because of karmic reparations for angering fans, pre-production on the new live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie has been shut down by Paramount, which has also pushed the planned December 2013 release date back to May 2014. Not surprisingly, the issue is said to be with the script -- a script for a TMNT reboot that has abandoned the original story so much that it's basically another movie that is just borrowing the TMNT name because no one could think of anything better. I'll pretend to be upset about this right after I stop laughing.

What Is Possibly the First Sketch of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Is Up For Auction

It Belongs in a Museum!

As a longtime fan, it's been a mixed bag seeing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the news lately. Yes, I'd personally love to see a new TMNT movie, but actually, Michael Bay, I'd like it to be about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That aside, this is a little bit of news about the original TMNT -- no, the original TMNT. The picture above is quite possibly the very first sketch of the characters by Kevin Eastman, one of their creators, who drew it to make fellow creator Peter Laird laugh. Drawn in 1983, it is now up for auction. After the jump, more information about that auction, plus an anecdote from Eastman. Cowabunga!

People Are Predictably Really Unhappy About Michael Bay’s Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles Movie — As They Should Be

I Guess I Can't Argue With That

So, we just found out that Michael Bay's plans for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie will entail changing the turtles from mutants into aliens. Even though "mutant" was kind of the whole point of the fighting band of turtles, and making them part of an "alien race" not only kills the original idea completely, but it's just a generally stupid idea if you're plan is to make a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. The "mutant" part is part of the package. But now, people associated with TMNT are speaking up against Bay's stupid, stupid, stupid decision, expressing what we fans of the series have thought since we first heard the news. No, not T-U-R-T-L-E power. More like rage.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Co-Creator Is Auctioning Off Everything In His Studio

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman has a really awesome studio. Awesome enough that when he decided to auction off everything in it to raise money for the Hero Initiative, a charity that helps comic creators in need, people were actually interested and started bidding on his stuff. The wealth of neat things includes original art, action figures, t-shirts, over 600 DVDs and, of course, his desk and chair. When he says everything, he means everything. The catch is, you can't pick and choose.

Japan Japans Up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles [Video]

Listen, Japan. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are already mutated, there's no reason to give them stones that mutate them further, and there's definitely no reason to give said stones a secondary mutation power that mutates them a second time into even stronger mutations. There is absolutely no reason for the Turtles to be thrice-mutated.

If I may recite an excerpt from the theme song. Ahem:

We are Turtles

Shining Turtles

Our hearts combine and the miracle fusion body is


Stop it, Japan.

(via WTF Japan, Seriously!? | This is actually real)
