I want to lie. I want to say I’m angry about director Jonathan Liebesman’s new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. But I’m not. Even as a childhood fan of the somewhat violent Black & White comics I don’t feel violated. I’m an adult now, and this is a movie about giant turtles. And, that being said, it actually doesn’t even look that bad for a kids movie. And a “kids movie” is certainly what these posters are selling. Because one of them is a dramatic rendering of turtles plummeting away from an explosion.
In the new live-action iteration, a city is in the iron grip of Shredder (William Fichtner) and the Foot Clan, and it’s up to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, along with the help of reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), to stop Shredder and save the day. Hit the jump to check out international versions of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles posters. The film also features the voices of Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub and opens in theaters on August 8th.
