Paramount Pictures just unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot, giving us a look at some new footage from the movie. Check out the trailer below.
Plot: 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.
The new movie is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans) and is set to hit theaters on August 8th.
Homato Yoshi fled Japan to get away from Oroku Saki after the murder of their master sensei by Oroku. He then became a hermit living in the sewers playing with rats then becoming mutated into a humanoid Rat after cleaning off 4 baby turtles he found crawling around covered in the TCRI mutagen.
Long after this point, Oroku Saki was called in to lead the crime syndicate known as The Foot in New York after his Uprising in Japan. The mutagen that was extracted from a Utroms tentacle mutated whatever it came in contact with into whatever that thing came in contact with the most.. Homato Yoshi + Rats in the sewer = Splinter, Turtles + Humans from the pet store = TMNT...
I stole all this from a dude from IMDB.. He knows too much.
"T.C.R.I, Techno - Cosmic Research Institute, is a scientific corporation/organization with a large, mysterious and imposing facility in Brooklyn, New York. Though little is known of the ongoings inside the building, their organization's acronym was printed upon the canister of mutagen which transformed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Splinter. "The facility is, in actuality, the secret terrestrial base of a race of aliens called Utroms who had crashed on the planet Earth sometime in the 1960s.
Having damaged their communication systems and lost a third of their crew in the crash, the Utroms used robotic humanoid exoskeletons and false skins to infiltrate the human population of New York City, gradually amassing enough capital to purchase a facility which they turned into their base of operations. Utilizing the slowly advancing technology of Earth, they re-established communication with the Utrom home world, but were then told to remain in an observational capacity.
The Utroms then spent the next decade transporting salvaged material from the spaceship crash site to the T.C.R.I. building the Technodrome while further developing their alien technology, including a Translocation Matrix which would eventually serve as a surreptitious portal between Earth and their home world. However, in 1970, a traffic incident caused a canister of chemical mutagen to fall off the truck and disappear into the sewers, never to be recovered.
Fifteen-and-a-half years later in 1985, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles infiltrated the facility looking for answers about their origins and missing sensei and were discovered. In the resultant struggle between the Utroms and TMNT, the Transmat and the communications system were damaged, sending the turtles across the universe and causing a bright flash of light that was seen throughout the city. New York's authorities tried to investigate the disturbance, but upon discovering that there was no way inside, besieged the facility for three days.
During that time, the Utroms retrieved the turtles, but the second flash that accompanied their return signaled the NYPD and the National Guard to begin their attack. Sending robots to hold them off, the Utroms all evacuated via the Transmat back to their home world and transported the turtles and Splinter to safety before triggering a self-destruct initiative which caused the building to collapse."
This is the 80s comic book origin, this is what they're using.
yep, overbudgeted and oversized turtles...can't really take this film seriously...the makers of the original film knew this and kept things logical...although it does make me laugh, and not for good reasons, how does the shredder and his foot clan able to destroy buildings like their f*cking decepticons...that's right i said 'f*cking decepticons'...you know that's what an autobot would say if transformers were rated R...of course, pg13 we get 'punk ass decepticon'...in my professional opinion, this remake is another one simply that can be put on the 'unnecessary' list
