I like it when I can do a ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ post that wouldn’t cause Megan Fox to tell me off and this latest clip from the film shows quite a bit of awesome potential. With the movie being released this Friday there isn’t much time to sneak in new preview material as I believe the trailers have all been released, but I have to say that this teaser is a nice throw back to the turtles of old!
Honestly, as action packed as the first trailer was, I think a few fans would have been more forgiving if this had been the first scene we had been given from the movie. It just screams classic Turtles in a way that many of the other trailers haven’t been able to pull off. Which, as it is a re-imaging of the foursome, probably is a good idea since this probably isn’t what we’ll be getting for the full movie. It’s still a good watch though!
In this clip titled ‘The Elevator,’ these brave turtles in a half shell have a moment’s respite from battle and in doing so, decide to keep their cool in a way that fans of the original series should love:
With how much looks like it could go wrong with the movie, this scene stands out as one that could go amazingly right.
