Yup, I think they nailed it. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 trailer looks totally radical!
And great casting choice with Stephen Amell as Casey Jones! I’m sure I knews that info going in but it was still a pleasant surprise to see him and maybe, just maybe this will prove to certain movie executives that he has the chops to make the move to the big screen as a superhero.
It should open well. The closest release of any merit to this crowd would be the X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27, so the competition for the weekend is pretty much non-existent. The previous TMNT movie wasn’t horrible, hell it made $65,575,105 its opening weekend making it number one at the box office. But fans seem to think it had a ton of problems, which like it or not can’t totally rest on the actors shoulders, so bringing back Megan Fox and Will Arnett for a second shot at it seems fair. It’s also nice to see a sequel and not a reboot, and a sequel that introduces the characters people have been rallying for. Though Bebop and Rocksteady definitely suffer from cgi-nitis I don’t think there’s a another way to depict them that wouldn’t look like a joke.
What do you think? Is this one you’ll see? Bringing the kids or the bros? Sound off in the comments.
