Fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise who enjoyed the previous film that featured these heroes on the halfshell will be excited to know that the sequel to that release will open up today. Check out the poster, premise and cast along with some thoughts that I have below.
The Turtles come into conflict with T.C.R.I. scientist Dr. Baxter Stockman and the return of their enemy, The Shredder, who has hired Stockman to create mutants of his own in the form of Bebop and Rocksteady to even the score, during which the Turtles discover a Retro-Mutagen in hopes they can become humans following an extraterrestrial invasion above New York City led by the Dimension X inhabitant known as Krang. Upon Krang’s Invasion, the Turtles are joined in the fight with their Master Splinter, their human friends April O’Neil, Vern Fenwick and the vigilante Casey Jones. (thanks Wiki).
Did you see the reboot to the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” film franchise back in 2014 with the film that was very simply titled “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”? I didn’t and quite honestly when diehard geek friends panned it to me I never followed up on it. I’ve been meaning to check it out but honestly must admit that I lost track and got busy with other agenda items. Despite my shortcomings here, the film is getting a sequel and the trailer was recently posted and is being shared with you all below. Check it out.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: This trailer looks like the film is going to be a lot of fun and they have upgraded the character content and even given us “The Bus” which is their armored James Bond kind of battle vehicle. The sequel also features Casey Jones who is a character I really liked from the original comic series when he appeared so many years ago. Perhaps the story for this one will appease those naysayers that warded me off of the first film but only time will tell. Speaking frankly I will not be seeing this one in the theaters unless I manage to see the first one AND end up liking it. I collected “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” for many years back in the day when the books were coming out care of Mirage Studios and I enjoyed the titles difference in a world of Dark Knights and Contests of Champions. Let me know what you think of this trailer in the comments below.
