The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles look stupid. We've already gotten glimpses of the remade turtles in Michael Bay's TMNT reboot — in Australian cinemas on September 11 — but today's new trailer takes "dumb-looking turtles" to the next level.
I mean, come on.
This whole gritty, doofy, straight-out-of-Avatar look is not working for the iconic cartoon turtles. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has never exactly been cool — Leonardo and crew were always dorky and cheesy in a loveable sort of way — but they have never had ridiculous zombie nostrils and gaping mouths like this before. It sure looks dumb. They're meant to be goofy cartoon characters, not outtakes from Predator. No wonder even TMNT's creator doesn't like them.

That Megan Fox acting. Yeesh.
