“…heroes are not born. They’re created.”
Those profoundly-spoken words herald the return of everyone’s childhood butt-kicking faves, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, reborn in CGI glory as the stars of a new Michael Bay (Armageddon, The Transformers movies) production of the same name. Based on the original comic book series and directed by South African filmmaker Jonathan Liebesman of Battle: Los Angeles fame, the forthcoming movie stars screen siren Megan Fox as reporter April O’Neil, William Fitchner (Special Agent Mahone on Prison Break) as the nefarious Splinter and sundry actors as the legendary “heroes in a hard shell.” Just watch the trailer already.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens in cinemas worldwide on August 8, 2014.
