A while back we had our first look of Megan Fox as April O’Neil in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake. Thankfully, it showed that the ooze is what causes the Ninja Turtles – and not the earlier reports that they’re of alien origin. We also finally get a look at the turtles themselves.

My favorite part is “Nickelodeon Studios” followed by a man firing a gun; it’s jarring.

There’s some heavy drama, but there’s also some lighthearted, silly moments in the trailer. And wrecking a car with a turtle shell, with the turtle still inside of course – no, I mean the shell, not the car. The turtles’ faces look a little strange, but regardless, my interest is piqued. It looks like a fun movie.

Oh yeah – premise, right? Here you go!

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles releases in theaters August 8.
