The forthcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot has been a point of contention of many diehard fans of the franchise, so the film’s debut trailer may either ease or increase their worries.
Directed by Jonathon Liebesman and produced by the ever-explosive Michael Bay, the movie, which is due out this spring, stars Megan Fox as the infamous April O’Neil, Whoopi Goldberg as Bernadette Thompson and Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick.
Fox’s casting came as a bit of a surprise, as she and Bay had a very public falling out following the second Transformers film in 2010.
However, the two must have settled their differences, because last winter Bay took to his official website to write, “TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!”
The trailer also allows fans to catch a glimpse of the new (and improved?) CGI versions of Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo and Raphael.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters on May 16 via Paramount Pictures.
