I’m not afraid to say it, I’m quite excited for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the best movie? No. Did it need more Turtles? Hell yes. But one thing it did right was get me excited to see what comes next. I wanted to return to the theater to see the next adventure of the half-shelled brothers. And so far, the trailers have done a great job of making me want to return to the theater.
While the first was directed by Jonathan Liebesman, Earth to Echo director Dave Green stepped behind the camera for Out of the Shadows. Green looks to bring a fun and young atmosphere to the Turtles, something these characters and this franchise has been searching for for years. Remember that elevator scene from the first movie? I think that’s exactly what we want an entire TMNT movie to be all about. Can Out of the Shadows be that? We’re all hoping so.
As I said above, I’ve been pretty impressed with the trailers so far. Minus the Beebop and Rocksteady stuff, the footage looks to be quite a bit of fun. All the pieces are in place, now it’s all about executing them properly. With all the superhero madness the first half of the year, June and Out of the Shadows has creeped up on us pretty quickly. And with X-Men: Apocalypse being king the last two weeks, you may have missed some of the newer footage Out of the Shadows has released. There isn’t much, but if you’re still on the fence about the movie, the following footage may change your mind a bit. If you’ve enjoyed the footage so far and just want more, definitely scroll down below. But if you don’t need anymore because you’re already excited and because of spoilers, it might be a good idea to skip the following videos.
