Those leaked trailer snaps may have been removed, but we now have the first official synopsis for the upcoming Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. It doesn't give away too much plot wise, but click on to get an idea of what April and her reptilian pals will be up to in the movie.

The CinemaCon teaser trailer reaction may have been decidedly mixed (at best) but you'll be able to decide for yourselves when that very trailer officially hits the web tomorrow morning. Until then, here's a fairly vague plot synopsis.

"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 is directed by Jonathan Liebesman. It stars Megan Fox, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, William Fichtner, Will Arnett, Whoopi Goldberg and opens August 8.

Sounds pretty cool. I can't wait for the trailer tomorrow. This movie should be dumb fun. Looking forward to it.
MrCBM56 - 3/26/2014, 6:31 PM
I agree with what blackandyellow (Miss you man) said before, this will be "The Lone Ranger of 2014".

Cowabunga! Booyakasha!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/26/2014, 6:34 PM
"and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick"
I sense Bay humor. HIT THE DECK
V8ER - 3/26/2014, 6:36 PM
@MrCBM56 What happened to blackandyellow?
RockBottom - 3/26/2014, 6:39 PM
Nice cliche plot we've heard a million times. Just give us the damn trailer. I'm tired of waiting.
ComicsBornAndBred - 3/26/2014, 6:41 PM
Trailer will open judgment. Can't say anything until then really. Diabolical haha. Really cliche and kinda...corny
Webhead804 - 3/26/2014, 6:41 PM
At least they're not aliens.
FirstAvenger - 3/26/2014, 6:42 PM
Corny = Ninja Turtles
IAmNotGr00t - 3/26/2014, 6:44 PM
TURTLES ARE REPTILES, not amphibians....I learned that from Over the Hedge
ThrotTheUnclean - 3/26/2014, 6:45 PM
I hope Vanilla Ice makes a cameo.
GeneralZod1138 - 3/26/2014, 6:46 PM
How Generic....
Marxman12 - 3/26/2014, 6:48 PM
Trailer is due tomorrow, right?
RorMachine - 3/26/2014, 6:49 PM
I always thought it was amphibians that could live on both land and in water..but after're damn right!

Oh boy. A wise-cracking sidekick in a Bay style film.

My awkward-and-offensive-humor senses are tingling.
MrCBM56 - 3/26/2014, 6:52 PM
Some of you are giving Bay unnecessary hate. I doubt he had barely anything to do with this film besides special effects. He was too busy making T4.
IAmNotGr00t - 3/26/2014, 6:52 PM
I always thought they were amphibians too until they made such a point of it in Over the Hedge Ive never forgotten about it for some reason lol
TheRealRemyLebeau - 3/26/2014, 6:53 PM
Ninja Rap. ;)
IAmNotGr00t - 3/26/2014, 6:55 PM
I don't point my hate towards this movie to Bay, because he is just the producer. I point my hate to the director who doesn't have a film rated a 7 or higher on IMDB.
KnobGoblin - 3/26/2014, 6:55 PM
This is the only TMNT movie that matters to me.
TheRealRemyLebeau - 3/26/2014, 6:56 PM
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles directed by Jonathan Liebesman

but Michael Bay is an action genius.

IAmNotGr00t - 3/26/2014, 7:02 PM
Unfortunatly, this movie is gonna be rated 5.8/10 on IMDB probably because thats the rating of Liebesman's last 3 movies.
OnePunchBaldy - 3/26/2014, 7:05 PM
2014 has a hell of a summer
Daniellantern - 3/26/2014, 7:06 PM
Cowabunga! Trailer please!
BatmanFTW - 3/26/2014, 7:08 PM
I'm excited for this. It looks like it'll be a good time. And if Arnett has any say in the humor, I'm sure he'll be hilarious
Platinum - 3/26/2014, 7:08 PM
This director has made nothing but mediocre crap. Not looking forward to this at all.
TheWolverine08 - 3/26/2014, 7:12 PM
I still don't know about this movie.....
Pedrito - 3/26/2014, 7:13 PM
I think i hate the wise-cracking cameraman already.
ManCalledSting - 3/26/2014, 7:14 PM
I'm not a fan of Will Arnett.
MexicanSuperman - 3/26/2014, 7:18 PM
@SilenceIKillYou, well the Russo brothers made some crap films before doing Capitan America 2, which many people are saying is the best Marvel Studios film to date. Some directors get better or worse over time.
BatGOD - 3/26/2014, 7:18 PM
Spideyfan11 - 3/26/2014, 7:18 PM
facepalm to all who keep calling this a bay movie. He's producing not directing. eyeroll.
Jtneagle - 3/26/2014, 7:19 PM
