Sneak Peek At the New Ninja Turtles Movie
It’s time for Michael Bay’s take on another iconic series from our childhoods. This is an alleged sneak peek at the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie poster. After seeing this glimpse into the Ninja Turtles new look I must say I don’t like it, but then I remember, this movie isn’t meant for me! This movie is meant for my son and his generation!
Ninja Turtles as we knew them where introduced in the late 80s and they where just what kids in the late 80s/ early 90s wanted to see! Children’s entertainment was much sillier and simple back then. Now today TMNT has already been very successful with it’s reinvented Cartoon series since Nickelodeon acquired the franchise. The turtles don’t look anything like the originals but you know what? My son loves them! As a matter of fact, he prefers them to the original series. If you try to show kids today most of the older shows and cartoons from out youth they loose interest very quickly. Why is this? Well, It seems to me one of the biggest issues is in the animation and colors themselves. Kids seem to be more drawn to the brighter colors, CG effects, and clean lines of modern shows of today. (Bright colors are like crack for their eyes!) They also like more action, more explosions, and my son takes his superhero movies very seriously! So I completely understand why shows reinvent their look over the years. What as adults we may have liked in our youth just isn’t what kids like today. Maybe we should keep this in mind more as 25+ year old shows are brought back to life. They are not for us. They are for us to take our kids to!
UPDATE: There where a series of photo leaks from ComicBookMovie.com
but they have since deleted them. The preview however was enough to put our minds at ease, and realize those Ninja Turtle halloween costume photos
that where going around are just terrible and very cheap knockoffs to the new movie versions (thank goodness!) Though the character themselves are not done these are allegedly the finalized designs!
