By now many of you have probably seen the new trailer for Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, if you haven’t you can check out the atrocity here. The new film, which is due to hit theaters later this year, is the re-imagined story of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ beginnings.
While historically the turtles have had a similar look and feel over the years, the Bay production has made some adjustments to their look. Most noticeably, the addition of noses and clearly defined lips. During one scene in the trailer Michelangelo removes his mask when he encounters Megan Fox’s April O’Neil as a means of trying to reduce her fear. What he unveils however is the most comical looking turtle I have ever seen throughout the years of Ninja Turtle incarnations. In fact, their appearance with defined nose and lips actually reminds me a little bit of another famous green face that has graced film screens over recent years.
What are your thoughts on the appearance of the new turtles?
