Paramount Pictures releases new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem clip and exclusive poster at San Diego Comic-Con.
While many studios elected to sit out San Diego Comic-Con this year, Paramount Pictures was one of the few to put on a presentation. A 20-minute clip from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem was screened, with a very small part of it released online.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem clip finds the young turtles sneaking back home from the outside world, only to be caught by Splinter. You can check out the clip above, as well as a Comic-Con exclusive poster below.
“After years of being sheltered from the human world, the Turtle brothers set out to win the hearts of New Yorkers and be accepted as normal teenagers through heroic acts,” reads the official synopsis for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem. “Their new friend April O’Neil helps them take on a mysterious crime syndicate, but they soon get in over their heads when an army of mutants is unleashed upon them.“
I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from this latest incarnation of the Turtles, but I love everything I’ve seen so far. The animation is stylish, the Turtles actually act like teenagers, and hey, it just looks like a lot of fun. The early reactions to the film have been fairly positive, but they typically are.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem features the voices of Nicolas Cantu as Leonardo, Brady Noon as Raphael, Micah Abbey as Donatello, and Shamon Brown Jr. as Michelangelo. The film also stars Jackie Chan as Master Splinter, Ayo Edebiri as April O’Neil, Seth Rogen as Bebop, John Cena as Rocksteady, Hannibal Buress as Genghis Frog, Rose Byrne as Leatherhead, Ice Cube as Superfly, Post Malone as Ray Fillett, Paul Rudd as Mondo Gecko, Maya Rudolph as Cynthia Utrom, Natasia Demetrious as Wingnut, and Giancarlo Esposito as Baxter Stockman.
Jeff Rowe directed the movie and also co-wrote the script alongside Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Dan Hernandez, and Benji Samit. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman was on hand for the Paramount panel, and he added that the rights to the original 1987 animated series were recently acquired by Nickelodeon and Paramount.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem will hit theaters on August 2nd.
