Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for their upcoming sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. There is no official synopsis for the movie at this point, but it’s clear that the sequel is further building on this mythos of the Turtles, with them finally embracing who they are and, wait for it… Stepping out of the shadows (see what I did there?). It will also see the Turtles taking on some of their most iconic villains, including Bebop, Rocksteady, and Krang.
The action sequel is directed by Earth to Echo helmer Dave Green, which points towards the sequel being aimed towards younger audiences. With that in mind, this new trailer is surprisingly a good time. There’s some snazzy new action, good jokes, and a ton of fun. While the original may not have lived up to its potential, they’ve taken a different approach to the sequel and they may very well have caught their stride with this franchise. I’ll still be going in with somewhat low-expectations, but I did so with the original as well and had a decent time. Hopefully the sequel can match that, or even step up its game.
