    Keep in mind, the first TMNT movie had product-placement pizza (Domino's) the second movie didn't use product-placement for the pizza and seemed to have the Turtles prefer to get non-chain New York restaurant pizza.

    Yeah, played by Shia LeBeouf.

    I literally have no hope for this movie. William Fichtner is playing "The Shredder" (or some version of.) So it's either going to be Shia LeBeouff, John Turturro or some racial caricature.

    It's being directed by Jonathan Liebesman, not Michael Bay though. While it will have Bay's fingerprints all over it, I have my hopes that it will be much better than the recent Transformers movies.

    Saw the link earlier. It had pics of the turtles' sewer lair and chairs that were made from Pizza Hut boxes. There was some serious product placement.

    At this point, pizza has become an important part of the whole Turtles franchise. Maybe too important.:vulcan:

    Yeah, but have you seen any of Liebesman's movies? His filmography is even worse than Bay's.

    They've reworked the script since then. The Turtles are no longer Aliens, their origin is closer to the comics now.

    If I'm not mistaken, they're still going to be aliens they're just taking a more round-about way to get them there.

    You are mistaken than. Because Bay has come out and said that the origin is now closer to the comics. They completely took out the alien aspect to it.

    Full story here.

    Turtle all bundled up like that makes me think of the Invisible Man.

    I think Raphael in a trenchcoat from the first movie looked much better.

    He looks "too" bundled up and also way, way too large.

    So is this "bad-ass" April, or is she just carrying Raph's sais for him? Check out her boots.

    We're getting a van!

    I did like the subtle nod to the turtle van in the 90's movie with the volkswagen one.

    This one does not hide what it is. A giant toy like something from Schumacher's batman series.

    I'm not sure if I like it or not. I certainly don't hate it though.
