Nickelodeon Movies Unveils Second "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Teaser Trailer

To celebrate Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie, Nick and Paramount have today, Tuesday 24th June 2014, released the second teaser trailer for their brand-new TMNT film, which you can watch in the online streaming video below!

Nick and Paramount's latest TMNT trailer showcases the cast of the movie, and features lots of turtle power. The trail also gives a first look at Whoopi Goldberg's character, Bernadette Thompson, and a good look at Shredder's claws (Watch out Master Splinter!).

The story this time around introduces a new generation to the turtles — and they're definitely turtles, for any fans still worried about rumors of a new, alien origin. There's even a knowing exchange in the trailer, seemingly addressing those concerns.

"So they're aliens?" asks Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick. "No," April O'Neil (Megan Fox) replies. "That's stupid."

There's also an interesting twist included in the spot. It appears that William Fichtner, who is credited at "The Shredder," might not be the guy in the suit, at least early on in an attack that leaves Master Splinter in need of avenging. Is the rat sensei in danger of dying? That would certainly shake things up in the series.

Leading up to the release of their second "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" trailer, Paramount Pictures used social media to help spread the word about their upcoming TMNT movie — with some help from one of the films stars, Megan Fox. In a YouTube video released yesterday, Fox encouraged fans to visit turtlereveal.com and to Tweet the name of their favorite Ninja Turtle character in order to unlock four exclusive posters, each featuring one of the Turtle brothers, giving them their best look yet at the reimagined versions of the Heroes in a Half Shell - Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo. You can view all four of Paramount's TMNT posters under the trailer below. Once all four posters were unlocked, the new trailer was uploaded.

In "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", 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 O'Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan."

The film, directed by Michael Bay ("Transformers"), is an reboot of the iconic franchise and will feature a origins story for the Heroes in a Half Shell, with Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher stepping into the shells of Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello, and Michelangelo respectively. "Ninja Turtles" also stars Whoopi Goldberg as Bernadette Thompson, and Danny Woodburn as Splinter.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" will be released in theatres and RealD 3D in the USA on Friday 8th August 2014 and in Digital 3D and 2D in cinemas across the UK on Friday 17th October 2014.
