Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans, brace yourselves. The turtles are here, and the CGI-rendered faces staring back at us don't look anything like the Jim Henson turtles of our happy memories.
Meet Michelangelo — he's really into the color orange, likes jewelry and thinks Megan Fox is scared of him because he's wearing a mask. Oh, Michelangelo, you silly, shelled rapscallion, you.
Next, Michael Bay introduces us to Leonardo in classic superhero style. Cue fog, cue wind, cue Leonardo rising out of the darkness with just enough back light to make you ask yourself, "Wait, is that a… turtle?"
Raphael only gets a moment in the spotlight in this trailer, but he looks like he means business. No doubt we'll learn more about Raphael — the turtle, the myth, the legend — in the next trailer.
Last, but not least, is Donatello. Donatello is obviously the tech hound of the bunch as he's decked out in gadgets and goggles, and is wearing what appears to be Johnny 5 from Short Circuit on his back.
It seems to us that Michael Bay is headed to the land of the Uncanny Valley with his super-anthropomorphized Turtles, but only the box office will tell. What do you think? Are these turtles freaking you out, or getting you freaking excited? Tell us in the comments below.
