That entire trailer looks like bay-influenced excess. Ugh, this movie is going to be kind of painful. And the Turtles' voices came across as.... "Obviously dubbed?"

I mean they *obviously* are, but it's like the voices weren't played with enough to sound like part of the scene and more like "on top of it" as if they're doing a DVD commentary or something.
I'm not able to watch the video yet, but I'm curious: is Johnny Knoxville's voice in this trailer? And if so, how does he sound as Leonardo?
it is. surprising as it sounds a lot like Will Arnett but then he is playing a human character so that just confused me even more

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

I'm really conflicted about this now. On one hand, yes it does look silly (and I'm still not sold on the Turtles' noses). But on the other hand it looks fun and seems to have a bit of the spark that makes the Turtles so fun.

Dammit...I'm probably going to see this in theaters.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

If nothing else, it actually does sound like they have the Turtles' personalities down. Donatello trying to be cool, but being a dork, Raphael making the sarcastic comment about Donny's "Batman voice," Leonardo being the serious one, and the Michelangelo being goofy.

It was pretty goddamn bad.

Is it supposed to be campy fun? Dramatic? Grimdark? We don't know, let's just do them all!

Looks like a ninja turtle film to me. I'm in.

Yeah, I don't think it looks too bad, if my nephew or niece are asking to see it I wouldn't mind taking them. As one who was too old when they came out it looks better than those original TMNT movies to me.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

Yeah, it's my childhood this movie is raping, so I should be in the group that cares, but I really don't. It looks like a modern Hollywood film and a modern Bay film that's slightly on the lighter/campier side than Transformers (which is appropriate for a Ninja Turtles film). Although, given the original comicbook, it could probably go way darker than this if they wanted to (I'm glad they aren't). Shredder as a character is over-designed, so making him more over-designed doesn't really bother me either. Upping the explosions and the stakes of the story seems likely for any modern Hollywood film.

Don't get me wrong, I have absolutely no intention of seeing this movie. I just don't see any reason to be outraged. They're preserving the concept for the most part so I don't have to worry about young kids thinking they're aliens or anything. Once you do that, the rest is whatever.

Yeah, that was worse than I was expecting and my expectations were pretty low to begin with.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

Are you guys clicking on that link? It said "Video removed by user" hours ago. No matter, I found the trailer and watched it. Can't tell if Shredder is an Autobot or a Decepticon.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

I saw the trailer earlier this morning, and it looks like goofy, stupid fun. Almost a so bad it's good kind of thing.

I just enjoy seeing Megan Fox half-assing her way through a movie.
