Despite all of the shade thrown at the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles before it ever opened, the film went on to be a surprisingly enjoyable box office smash with nearly $500M. One of the early fears was that Bay would muck around with the Turtles' history far too much (remember "Turtle-gate"?), but in actuality the film stuck to the story that fans know and love. And now with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows coming up, the nostalgia factor has been kicked up another notch.
A new trailer for the film showcases the first appearances of some old favorites: Stephen Amell as Casey Jones,WWE superstar Sheamus as Rocksteady, Gary Anthony Williams as Bebop, Fred Armisen voicing Krang, and Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman. And of course, there's Megan Fox as the hottest April O'Neil ever captured on screen. It also looks like some of the familiar TMNT conflicts are back as tension brews between team leader Leonardo and the hot-headed Raphael.
Directed by Dave Green and starring Will Arnett, Tony Shalhoub, William Fichtner, Brian Tee, and Laura Linney, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows opens June 3rd.
