WATCH: New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV Spot lets us see and hear Splinter

April 14th, 2014 by Marc Comments

With the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie coming in a few months, we’ve had a trailer (here) already in which we saw the Turtles and April O’Neill but still no glimpse of Splinter or Shredder…. until now

An all new TV Spot called ‘Brothers’, revealed by MTV, shows us Splinter in a scene in which he seems to be preparing to fight Shredder and it also seems that we’re hearing him narrate the spot too… is this the voice of Tony Shalhoub as the sensei rat as we reported here?

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. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O’Neil (Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the film stars Megan Fox in the role of April O’Neil, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, Danny Woodburn as Master Splinter and William Fichtner as Shredder.

Teenage Mutant ninja Turtles will hit theaters on August 8, 2014

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
