Music video director Dave Green takes over for Jonathan Liebesman this time around and the results look like they will certainly please fans of last year's remake.
Having only seen the first two original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, I can't say much about last year's Michael Bay-produced remake other than that it definitely looked like a Michael Bay movies. All the key elements were there: Walls of CGI explosions up the whazoo, a scantily clad Megan Fox, a third thing...
Eviscerated by critics it though it may have been, Bay's TMNT was definitely the kind of popcorn flick that audiences seeking a 90-minute escape could appreciate, and more importantly, it made a literal boatload of money (nearly $500 million worldwide on a $125 million budget). As such, plans for a sequel were quickly greenlit, and the trailer for said sequel, titled Out of the Shadows, made its way online earlier today.
As to the plot, well...all I was able to glean was that Casey Jones shows up at some point, as does Tyler Perry as Neil DeGrasse Tyson (or something) and updated versions of Tokka and Rahzar named Bebop and Rocksteady. The trailer does, however, make sure to feature Megan Fox's April O'Neil in what I assume is a schoolgirl disguise and you've stopped reading this haven't you?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows hits theaters on June 3, 2016 in 3D and IMAX 3D.
