Paramount Pictures have unveiled a brand new trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the upcoming live-action/CG take on the anthropomorphic fighting turtles. It’s the best look at the film we’ve been given thus far. We’re digging the fact that they’re putting in as much humour as they can, since Nolan-esque brooding stylings are being way overused. The latest trailer certainly goes straight for their target audience. Dubstep? Check. Batman reference? Check. Gratuitous Megan Fox shot? Check. The trailer also finally introduces us to Shredder, who looks pretty bad-ass without having a personality. Basically, it should solidify whatever pre-conceptions you’ve had about the film already.
Directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans).

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.
