Yeah, I saw that trailer earlier today. This was pretty much me the whole way through:

You are making a movie about MUTANT TURTLES WHO ARE ALSO NINJAS.

 

Grim, serious melodrama does not work for this.

I thought the tone was... off. I mean, I remember the old comics being bloody and curse happy but it was always bright and silly. This is just taking itself too seriously.

They didn't even say "Dude" in the whole trailer... I am wholly unimpressed.

Am I the only one bugged by 1. Megan Fox and 2. Non-ginger-April?

The only thing I can say at this point is just: "Why?" Why Megan Fox as April? Why the serious tone? Why are the turtles barely in their own trailer? Why are they so tall? Why do they have to look "realistic?"

Why. Why. WHY.

I'm more bugged by the implication that, based on the trailer, the Shredder is supposedly April's father. I know we're talking about TMNT here, but there are so many ways that this screws things up.

I don't mind their looks honestly its alot better than I was expecting. The whole white guy being shredder is unexpected, but owell. If he does it right then it will be a decent experience. If not idk. I do hope Bay throws in the usual explosions and action elements.

No buddy no. Watch it again. The guy talking to her is Shredder. Why would he call her Miss Oneal if its his daughter. He also states that he was working with her father to create heros. This story arc is definitely new to me either way. Also, Karai is the supposed adopted daughter of Shredder. Which is also in this film.


Next Batch of consoles..... Or well the rumors.

PS5 - 8 Cores Zen 2 - RAM - 16+ GB -  GPU - 9.2 Tflops somehow equal to 14.x Tflops on GCN? FEB 2020 reveal?

XB4 - 8 Cores Zen 2 - RAM - 16+ GB - GPU - 8 Tflops? Equal to some other number like 13 on GCN? JUNE 2020

Switch 2/ Switch Go? - Even more Portable Switch. Rumor of a better SoC that is cooler and faster maybe more powerful. Extra Mario Mushrooms.

Yeah, I think April's father is supposed to be working with the Shredder--I don't think April is supposed to be the Shredder's daughter. At least, I hope not.

 

They are working Karai into this too? Sheesh.

So does that mean Splinter is her father?

Haters gonna potate.

 

I dunno, this looks pretty good actually, I was surprised. Bear in mind, that Michael Bay isn't directing, he's producing, BUT that doesn't mean he doesn't have a say in stuff either so, it's not un-wise to be cautious. I don't like that Megan Fox is April O'Neil, but whatever, I'll live. The turtles however, look badass and look absolutely massive. I mean, have you seen Donnie and did you see when one of them WRECKS a freaking humvee!? OH MAN!

 

Yeah, yeah, grimdark or not, I don't care. Did we forget that TMNT originally wasn't intended for kids? Or that freaking Leonardo and Donnie killed Shredder? Among other things?

 

EDIT: Also, this is why we have Bill Fitchner as Shredder.

Okay. So.

Going by what they present in the trailer. The best solution that New York could come up with for its crime problem... Was mutant ninja turtles. When your idea is so bad, that, even without suspension of disbelief, it makes Detroit's solution of a cyborg cop look good, you have officially hit rock bottom. This trailer has made ROBOCOP look like feasible and cost-effective answer to a real-world problem in comparison.

Now I have nothing against Robocop, I love me some Robocop, but it's not what I would call a movie you can really take seriously. You have to suspend your disbelief with it, and I understand that. But the friggin' GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE couldn't suspend enough disbelief for this premise.

Blame the '80s. :P  Whatever it originally was, they've been transformed into an icon of children's TV shows over the past 30 years or so.

As someone who owns a few of the original TMNT comics, you're preaching to the choir here. But even in those comics, when things were grimdark, the turtles didn't look giant monsters. They looked like...well...
 
original-TMNT-comic.jpg
 
That. :P
 
And honestly, I never liked the 80s show all that much. My version of TMNT came from the 2003 show, which despite being a Saturday morning cartoon, followed the comics quite closely. And even in the comics, it's not likes things never took a turn for the silly. I mean, the original comics have the turtles blast off into space and meet a group of aliens call the Triceratons. Which are exactly what you think they are. 
 
The 2003 show didn't shy away from darkness either. There was an episode in Season 3 called Same as it Never Was where Donatello is transported to the future where the turtles and Shredder are at war. At the end of the episode, everyone dies to save Donny's life.
 
Everyone. Killed one by one.
 
And, uh, this happened in Season 4:

And this happened to guy on the new Nickelodeon show.

You know, for kids. ;)
 
I think what I'm trying to say is that it's not the grimdark stuff that really bothers me. It's the tone. TMNT is a goofy concept. Keep an air of silliness to it. Don't make the turtles look like monsters. Have fun with it. Don't make the story focus on Megan Fox. Focus on the reason we came here. In Transformers, we see way too many people and not enough giant robots. This trailer leads me to believe that we will see too much Megan Fox and not enough turtles.
 
And everything Ter SpaceGuy said too.
 
I do hope I'm pleasantly surprised by this movie. But that first trailer did not leave a good first impression. In my opinion.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that the original comics were meant to be a satire of comics at the time. It just kinda took off from there.

Maybe there were experimenting on enhancing humans with the green goo and it leaked out and so on.

After viewing the trailer (I'll admit, I kinda didn't want to), I gotta say, I think it actually looks pretty okay.  I think it might be a fun and silly movie, they're just being serious for the trailer is what it looks like to me.

 

I do hope we get to see some Foot ninjas, though. :P

But guys? Don't you know? CGI is expensive, especially when we put lots of ridiculous detail into it! We can't make a whole movie out of that! And, as you all know, human actors are cheaper and MUCH more interesting than giant, transforming robots or mutant ninja turtles. Who'd want to see a WHOLE movie about those things when you can be forced to ogle a woman who can barely act?

 

That'd just be silly.
