I think I just threw up a bit in my mouth when I read this
"When you see this movie, kids are going to believe, one day, that these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie. These turtles are from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable."
I believe the adage goes, "If it ain't broke..."
We all get creative leeway. But if all your going to do is make a movie about alien heroes and slap a TMNT and its tropes layering over it like a bad sugar coating I see FAIL coming to a cinema near you soon.
