Paramount has been going hard on the promotional trail right now to generate some buzz for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. But despite pumping out several cast interviews and new images, along with the recent TV spots being shown during the 2014 NBA Finals, no one’s really speaking about the Michael Bay project.
Seeing how they’ve alienated the hardcore fans of the series, the studio decided to release a new series of faux-graffiti posters featuring the foursome and Shredder, which they hope will tug at our nostalgic heartstrings. While cleverly designed, it does little to strike our interest back in the film. They’re still worth checking out though, especially Shredder’s. Peep his new blades.
“The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.”
