Fans of the original “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” animated series might be tempted to buy a ticket for their latest live-action adventure since some classic villains and heroes are coming to the big screen, too.
The first full trailer for Paramount and Nickelodeon’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” unveils mutant henchman Bebop and Rocksteady in all their CGI glory. Fans who weren’t please with the last movie, which still grossed over $493 million in 2014, should at least be satisfied with the characters’ familiar appearances.
Tyler Perry‘s mad scientist character, Baxter Stockman, was teased in the 15-second trailer that hit the web on Wednesday, but now viewers get a little more information about how the four credited screenwriters (rarely a good sign) worked him into the plot.
The “TMNT” sequel appears to be full of more explosions, turtle banter and heroes in a half shell’s sweet new ride, that fans of the animated series will recognize as the tricked-out Turtle Van. The movie directed by Dave Green (“Earth to Echo”) hits theaters on June 3.
