Watch the first trailer for Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


The first trailer for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film surfaced online, with Megan Fox – playing inexperienced reporter April O’Neil – looking as beautiful as ever.

The film is scheduled for a August 8 release, with Jonathan Liebesman directing the rebooted series after the 2007 film, TMNT, received mixed reviews but still grossed over $95 million worldwide. Liebesman is best known for his work on Wrath of the Titans and Battle: Los Angeles, and will work with the world renowned Michael Bay.

Bay’s expertise is in the world of CGI and high-budget action films, and he is the brains behind such works as the Transformers series and Armageddon. You know what to expect with Bay, and fans of the Transformers franchise will likely be fans of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, which also stars Megan Fox. With Whoopi Goldberg, Will Arnett and William Fichtner also confirmed for the film, it is not without its familiar faces.
