There’s a tiny bit of new Turtle fight action in this TV spot, but the part of this new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles footage that you’ll probably want to see is the first real look at the rat Splinter. You don’t get a great look at the guy, but there’s enough of a view to know that it couldn’t possibly be anyone else. The Turtles are still ugly, though, as as in the trailer. “New ugly,” I mean; the guys were never pretty, but at least they had an established look. Enough about that, however. Check out the spot below for the shot of Splinter.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8. IGN has this TV spot.
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.
