A new commercial for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiered last night's MTV movie awards and the clip gives you a glimpse at Master Splinter and Shredder.
The upcoming Paramount picture looks pretty amazing. But, many say they are disappointed as to how creepy the turtle's look. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
co-creator Peter Laird admitted that he was disappointed.
The changes to the basic design of the Turtles seemed to me to fall into the “fixing what is not broken” category. It’s altogether possible that, in the context of this new movie, these designs will work well and not seem so odd, but I still point to what Jim Henson’s “Creature Shop” team did with their rendering of the Turtles in rubber and paint as the best translation (in live action, anyway) of the Turtles as Kevin Eastman and I created them. [...> One thing that comes to mind if how cool it would be if someone did CGI versions of those same Henson designs, with all the incredible flexibility and seamless action potential available with today’s CGI.
But at least they now have rocket skateboards. So that's a plus!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
