There's no way that's a ninja turtle, it has no shell & the limbs are too long.

Yeah, that's not a Ninja Turtle but wow, if not for this thread I would've missed this trailer and it's right up my alley.

Too skinny.

Eh, the trailer looks boring. Might pass.

Steven Spielberg

Fake, but anyway, it looks nothing like a Steven Spielberg film.

If Steven Spielberg directed TMNT, it would probably be like ET, April (and maybe also Irma) being a child (early primary-elementary school or whatever) befriendind the turtles...

I could see that if every one of his films were literally the same thing, but since they aren't, this is a ridiculous notion.

This is no fake, it's a real movie and it's a Steven Spielberg one too booth, but that things is 100% not a Ninja Turtles nor it's even meant to be one.

It's only the TMNT he's calling fake.

Yeah I went looking through that trailer for The Ninja Turtle that even the Nerdist said was in there, but I couldn't find it.

I'm curious to see them translate the book to the screen, especially given the fact that the book has the ability to name drop a wider variety of geek properties than the movie will ever be allowed to.

If one of the Turtles is in the movie, It'll probably the 90s version.

Probably. The Fred Wolf show needs more homage.

Probably for the best. If Spielberg were to even touch a TMNT in one of his turtle films, I'd proably cry myself to sleep at the unused potential of it all.

It won't let me post the same image in two threads. Anyway if your interested the photo I attached in post #14 of this thread shows a slightly different view and it looks like a little more shell is showing. Reminds me some of a 2007 movie turtle.

Got my hopes up. But Spielberg would have my 'permission' to do TMNT, so long as he'd try to stay true to the heart of it.

Eh, I doubt it. Although if they want a kid in it, I'd love for the Turtles to finally be older and maybe a child involved in the film could be April's daughter (or someone else's) instead. (Along for the ride with her four mutant uncles... Actually that sounds fun.)

Even if it was a ninja turtle, I think it would have a role as big as Michealangalo did in the Lego Movie.

Who is that supposed to be that the kid walks by on the left near the beginning? With the mask and the 2 swords across his back? Is that supposed to be Deadpool or Deathstroke or something?
