Re: New live action "Turtles"?
I'm surprised how many people are saying that this looks like silly fun. It's so dark and gritty. I can't equate dark and gritty with silly and fun. It needs a lighter tone and brighter colours if that's the approach it's going for.
I think you need to reassess your definition of what is 'dark and gritty', because there's very little about what we've seen that conveys grittiness or darkness in terms of the film's tone.
A visual palette that is shadowy and subdued does not equal grittiness and darkness by any means.
