First Netflix decides to appeal every ’90s kid’s fantasy by adding Pokemon to its lineup, and now the nostalgia continues with the introduction of a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

Everyone’s favorite side-scrolling adventure for the original Super Nintendo is being brought to life on the big screen, but probably not in the way you were thinking. 

Reactions to the Trailer

After the official trailer to the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie appeared on YouTube, many people who saw it thought it was a joke. While the beginning scenes were enticing and flashy, once the producer’s name flashed “Michael Bay,” across the screen, mouths began to drop open. 

Michael Bay, known exclusively for blowing up everything he can get his hands on, would not be the first producer in mind for this movie in almost anyone’s head. However, it seems that the skepticism surrounding the trailer’s release yesterday, March 27th, 2014, is waning. 

Although many questions and concerns still remain, it’s obvious from the overwhelming support the video is receiving on YouTube (over 7 million views, and over 38,000 thumbs up) that the advocates severely outweigh the naysayers. 

After watching the trailer, viewers can see that the essence of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle that we know and love is captured to every degree. With Megan Fox cast as April O’Neil, the anticipation continues to build until the movie’s release on August 8th.
