Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer, mutants yes and aliens no

One of the final action-films to closeout the summer of 2014 will be the rebooted ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ series, and the latest trailer puts to bed a few annoying internet rumors.
 
After a short social-media promotion where fans unlocked character posters by sharing the news of the film across the globe, the trailer above was released as another reward. It may be hard to recognize Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo with their new design, but they do have those stylish colors to help you in identifying your favorite shellback.
 
Earlier this year the internet was worried that the dramatic redesign of the Turtles was because the film was going to make them aliens instead of using the tried-and-tested Oooze mechanic. That is not the case, you still have the same Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (mostly).
 

 
In a tongue-in-cheek play the trailer features the lines, “So they’re aliens?” asked by Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick. “No,” April says. “That’s stupid.”
 
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” opens in theaters on August 8.
