That looks like The Hulk crossed with my Ginsu knife collection.
 
2014-06-18 09:50:34 AM  
Yeah, I won't be watching that.  I'll keep my childhood memories intact and untainted thank you.

Turtle looks like he has downs.

Or the Mountain crossed with Edward Scissorhands

This is all kinds of "Meh........."

I'd rather watch an episode of "The adventures of peeling paint" than this movie.
 
2014-06-18 12:04:10 PM  
Ah, so his look is just as overstylized and busy as the Bayformers. Shocker.

Wait... William Fichtner is portraying Shredder? Not that I mind Fichtner getting a decent paycheck out of this... but why wouldn't Shredder's character be Japanese?
 
2014-06-18 12:05:47 PM  
At least the turtles are no longer aliens, right?

Giant humanoid turtles? Check. Distinct personalities? Check. Martial arts experts? Check. Led by a giant farking rat? Check. Against Shredder and the Foot Clan? Check.

Yeah, they've TOTALLY ruined this.
 
2014-06-18 12:14:28 PM  
Looks fine to me. A lot better than the stupid look of the turtles in this for sure.

What if I expected nothing because I don't fetishize my childhood inappropriately into middle age?
 
2014-06-18 12:20:34 PM  
Other than fact he's not Japanese (which is no bigger a problem than the Human Torch not being white) I don't really get the problem. It's a big guy wearing improbable armor and spiky bits.

How is that different to the Shredder we remember?

This. Unless it gets shiat reviews I'll probably check this out for the mindless movie it will be. It's a bunch of talking turtles, FFS

No.  I expected it to be worse than anything anyone expected.

2014-06-18 12:33:28 PM  
Well that's... boring. And stupid.

Everything about this screams design by committee. I have no expectations of any kind of emotional investment or character development.
 
2014-06-18 12:36:51 PM  
Looks fine. If you care about this movie and you're older than 10, I feel bad for you.

Instead of supporting whatever the hell this film is, I think I'll just go upgrade the original film to BluRay.
Seriously. It can't be that hard. Why this got turned into just another epic/destruction/war film is beyond me.

Come at me bro?

The new TMNT nick show looks far better than that.  That looks like an even over the top Super Shredder.

The only thing keeping me back from seeing this movie out of morbid curiosity is megan fox as april.
 
2014-06-18 12:41:32 PM  
There's no way that design is for a Michael Bay movie.  Not enough of the costume is exploding.
 
2014-06-18 12:43:26 PM  
Kneel before the Shredder (because I can't lift my arms any higher than this).

I have an odd fondness for the original movie. Had a lot of heart.
 
2014-06-18 12:51:33 PM  
Looks like The Predator's retarded cousin after playing with duct tape and dollar store knives. I can't even imagine what Krang would look like after Michael Bay gets done with it.
 
2014-06-18 12:54:11 PM  
Also, Will Fichtner is about as far from a Shredder character as I can imagine, but it seems like Michael Bay has to cram him into every one of his movies.

I'm considering taking my 6 year old son to see it.
 
2014-06-18 12:58:43 PM  
Am I the only one who remembers that half the popularity with the TMNT had nothing to do with the show, but the tie-in to toys, video games and fast food?

My point is that I think they're overestimating interest in the film from youngsters and nostalgic adults because it was always much more marketing than legitimate popular culture phenomena.

That looks like the Iron Throne as a Transformer.

Still one of the best low-budget B-movies of all time.


Serial Killer X: Other than fact he's not Japanese (which is no bigger a problem than the Human Torch not being white) I don't really get the problem.


Maybe, as long as his training is somehow explained. It's just tough to imagine white ninja masters outside of Bruce Wayne or Snake-Eyes.


Valiente: What if I expected nothing because I don't fetishize my childhood inappropriately into middle age?


Attempting to make a kids' movie enjoyable to entire families doesn't have to involve service to overaged fans. In the last year alone, I've enjoyed taking my 7-year-old to The Lego Movie and Despicable Me 2. We don't hesitate when she wants to watch good movies like those during family TV time.

She likes the current Ninja Turtles TV series and has some of the newer kids' books and graphic novels, so she is naturally interested in this film. My wanting to be entertained by it has nothing to do with how much I liked the original comics or first film as a kid. It has to do with not wanting to be somewhere else while sitting in the theater or my living room.

Ugh how about no.

Yep, plus I'm wondering if any adults excited about this movie managed to find someone who would breed with them.
 
2014-06-18 01:12:09 PM  
Maybe that's the super shredder after he gets dipped in magic ooze? That is the only explanation I can come up with.

If you are going to do a movie based on beloved source material, you may want to at least TRY not to alienate the fan base. This looks more to me like The New Monkees.

It's not surprising that this image was released ..I'm sure they are testing the waters.

looks like shredder to me.  you guys biatch too much.

I'd bet there are far more white guys who study "ninjutsu" than Japanese.

Totally - they have over a month to change his costume in every single shot.
They're clearly throwing it out there for early feedback.

It's the lips, really. Those creepy-ass lips.

Wait ... what?  That's pretty cool - who's been cast to play his sister then?

Needs moar Baysplosions blades.


I'm just wondering about the physics of that costume.

The hand-blades are roughly as long as his forearms. That's going to make things awkward whenever he has to move his arms anywhere near his own body.

His arms are roughly as thick as his torso. Coupled with the above, I'm not sure how he'd move his arms at all, between the weight and risk of dismemberment.

Did Rob Liefeld do the character sketches? Someone check the straightness of those blades...
