The TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES are here to save the world! And on August 8, they'll be appearing in theaters and RealD 3D!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remind me of my very own childhood, and I love the fact that I can still follow along with them along with my kids! Also, I'm an Italian teacher, and I always appreciated the fact that the turtles are named after four Renaissance artists. Plus, I share a love of a good Italian pizza with the TMNT team!
Rated PG-13, the movie takes place in New York City, where Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The Turtles must step out of their sewer and work with fearless reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan. Based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Characters Created by PETER LAIRD and KEVIN EASTMAN with a Screenplay by JOSH APPELBAUM & ANDRÉ NEMEC and EVAN DAUGHERTY, Producer MICHAEL BAY (the blockbuster Transformers franchise) and director JONATHAN LIEBESMAN (Wrath of the Titans) bring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into the 21st century.
