Spoiler! Raph's missing, im sure he comes to save the day.
UrichLeeds - 5/9/2013, 1:48 PM
The new foot look decent enough and kudos to them using the Rise of Apes techniques for creating the Turtles.
Optimus83 - 5/9/2013, 1:48 PM

Brainiac13 - 5/9/2013, 1:49 PM

Hmmm well with everything bad I've said about this movie I'll give it a chance, or at least till I see a final product (like poster or trailer or something)
Inhuman - 5/9/2013, 1:50 PM
They need to make TMNT PG-13 like the Transformers trilogy, edgy and cool and made for a more adult oriented audience
mootman - 5/9/2013, 1:53 PM
So I'm confused... Is the title of this thing "NINJA TURTLES" or is it back to "TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES"?
Stumblin - 5/9/2013, 1:53 PM
I have a feeling the Turtles are going to look awesome! Honestly I loved the first movie with the live action Turtles but the problem is they weren't very ninja-esque because they were highly limited to what they were physically able to do. Still impressive but I think the CGI route is the best way to go to really capture their ninja skills.
JDeezNuts - 5/9/2013, 1:53 PM
you know what. i now officially put this in my looking forward to list of 2014, the last one on the list though. i dig the fact that the foot looks like league of shadows ninjas and i especially like that they made the shells on the back. P.S. did anyone else notice the color coordinated sleeves on their arms?

ronnie42 - 5/9/2013, 1:55 PM
lmfao this looks crazy, interested to see what this is going to look like.
inkslinger616 - 5/9/2013, 1:56 PM
Wow, I just became hopeful for this....
ALegendaryPanda - 5/9/2013, 1:56 PM
I'm actually kinda interested to see how they look in the movie.

i also dig that they don't just use old school ninja weapons. The guy on first left clearly has a pistol strapped to his hi, and the guy on the back right has an M4. i like that they won't pussyfoot with the idea of murder.
Spidey91 - 5/9/2013, 1:59 PM
man, their designs sucks! they're all black and white and grey, no green at all :P
HulkDraxGroot - 5/9/2013, 2:00 PM
can't wait to see how the turtles will end up looking!
AxlKomix - 5/9/2013, 2:00 PM
@jdwylwer404- "The Foot," as it were, aren't even a ninja clan in the script that leaked. Here's being optimistic that they've changed things in the rewrite, but the look of them doesn't make me hopeful

Also, does anyone else think the shell's look a little too large for the body frames of the actors?
BboiBlack - 5/9/2013, 2:02 PM
MICHAEL BAY IS NOT DIRECTING THIS [frick]ING MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the headlines are getting old.
JDeezNuts - 5/9/2013, 2:02 PM
@marvelspycho. I've seen some concept art. one concept they look absolutely disgusting in a sexual way. one they look terrifying. one actually looks super cool. i wish i knew how to post pictures.
AlexDeLarge87 - 5/9/2013, 2:03 PM
I want to like this film so bad.

Dont suck! Please for the love of god dont suck!
MOSESivviOC - 5/9/2013, 2:04 PM
Looking forward to this movie, because it's fuhck'n TMNT! However, militarized foot clan? Turtles held captive? Looks like something I once read in a REALLY bad script that leaked not too long ago...
JDeezNuts - 5/9/2013, 2:05 PM
@Axelkomix do you know of a place where i can get my hands on that copy?
Vaportrail - 5/9/2013, 2:15 PM
Those shells are huge.
bjvb997 - 5/9/2013, 2:16 PM
@NPaMusic, your right he's only producing. But take a look at his IMDB page under "Producer"..... Not a good track record, and being a producer he's got a lot of say when it comes to the movie.
storyteller - 5/9/2013, 2:19 PM
Oh get off your high horses. Just because they are using mocap does not mean they are any less invested in the turtles then the old movies. Rewatch those films. There are times where I think they had to edit stuff a certain way because physically those suits sucked. Also this may be the easier way to get a living breathing mutated turtle versus some moving faces.

Dont the Foot looks suspiciously like a team of black ops soliders? Wasnt that the storyline from that terrible abandoned script from a few years ago?
darkjoker1 - 5/9/2013, 2:28 PM
0_o......well already then.....good this going to be a shit movie...
GhostZero - 5/9/2013, 2:29 PM
Hopefully we'll get a good movie, the first Transformers was good after all.

Why do you guys call it "Michael Bay's TMNT" if it's not him who is directing?
JDeezNuts - 5/9/2013, 2:30 PM
@Seamuskeaneart hey do you know where i can get that script i really wanna read and see how bad it is.
kemuael - 5/9/2013, 2:30 PM
ill wait on the trailer...
BrownandYellowWolvie - 5/9/2013, 2:32 PM
@storyteller, sorry the old suits were awesome. limiting? did you see all the acrobatics they could do? splits, jumps, flips, kicks. I'm interested to see how CGI turtles come out, but i'm just sick of CGI being the easy way out. Hulk needed to be CGI, it wouldn't be practical for a behemoth character to be in a giant rubber suit. Gollem too, unless they wanted to hire a starving 3rd world actor. But it was already proven in the 80's and 90's that practical effects work great with the turtles, and i'm sure can be even better now. People are just lazy and CGI is the answer to everything, no matter if it looks fake.
