Michael Bay ruining the new TMNT movie?

This is exactly how the turtles should look in 2014

One of my foot ninjas leaked the new movie scenario yesterday. He did it with my order . Here you go. http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?t=46874

Someone, actually someones at a pretty high level within the movie has leaked me some pretty juicy tidbits about the movie. They were already excused from the production and apparently just had a blowout with the bigwigs on it, so they gave me the green light to go ahead and post some spoilers:

Some ghastly tidbits:

* The Turtles are normal human teenaged non-identical quadruplet brothers age 18 (all coming from long line of foster homes in their childhood), 3 of which as janitors, and the "lead" brother in security, all at TCRI when they stumble into the "Central Mutagenic Chamber" that they know they're not supposed to go to and become accidentally exposed to it. I don't know their real names but I'm told they're equivalent to "Tom, Steven, Jim and Dave."
* The ooze instantly mutates you in this universe into the last thing you touched. The last thing the brothers touched was a tortoise they find in the lab and pass around goofily ala "Hot Potato."
* The ooze automatically makes you learn "kung fu," ala the Matrix. No mention of ninjitsu beyond dialogue of the Turtles talking conversationally about, "How cool! We're like, ninjas now, dudes!" So the Turtles are basically "Late Teenaged Mutant Kung Fu Tortoises."
* April O'Neil's father IS Splinter. Or at least, is now. "Mac" O'Neil seems to be his real name. He barely remembers April, instead the mutagen-infused martial arts side of him takes over. Strange. In any case, he's there, lurking under the TCRI building, just in time to save the newly mutated Turtles and take them under his wing. He becomes the father figure they never had. There's some pretty long training sequences where they basically refuse to conform and try to rebel against Splinter's teachings. "You must take this gift, this opportunity, and become heroes for the people of this city!!!" Lame.
* April is a news reporter that is investigating TCRI, where Baxter is further refining the ooze for Erich Sachs. Like the first movie, the Foot/Shredder doesn't like her snooping around, so they attempt to silence her but fail (and then she meets the Turtles and makes fast friends).
* There is no Hamato Yoshi beyond some quick mention of the original Shredder, Oroku Saki, having been in conflict with one's rival clan in a particular era of Feudal Japan that Erich Sachs is interested in/seems to obsess on. There is a flashback to some of this, a big sweeping montage of Japanese samurai and ninja fighting, but it might end up getting cut in the theatrical cut.
* Erich Sachs isn't a real person. He's an android and Prime Leader Krang has been inside him the whole time. There's a whole Transformers-like crash landing on Earth scene centuries ago, and there's a scene where you see him being built, and the prototype looks almost exactly like the Fred Wolf TMNT android body for Krang, red underwear and all, but more segmented. Turns out he used to "be" Oroku Saki in Feudal Japan.
* Sachs hires criminals to create crime, creates the Foot to deal with the crime after being empowered, and then when a state of martial law is instituted, uses the Foot to basically take control of the city in the guise of the Shredder.
* Karai is the military leader of the Foot.
* The Turtles go on a hunch to the Appalachian Mountains to investigate a TCRI lead by April. Vernon tags along. The Turtles do a flash mob dance to try and distract the Foot guards there. At one point, Don loses his glasses and can't fight, but ends up accidentally KOing Foot Soldiers anyway. It's very embarrassing. All 6 of them escape, for now.
* Returning to the city, the Turtles and Vernon get kidnapped by the Foot. Raphael and April have to rescue them.
* The Technodrome (piloted by Krang-Shredder) comes out in New York, destroying a bunch of buildings. Expect Armageddon/Independence Day stuff here. A gateway opens to Dimension X and Rock Soldiers start coming out, and start taking out EVERYBODY, even the Foot Soldiers (whose use to Krang-Shredder is apparently over, or at least trivialized).
* Raph at the wheel, Donatello's Turtle Van (foreshadowed earlier in the movie) runs over a bunch of Rock Soldiers and rams its way into the Technodrome.
* Big final battle. Raph and April, mostly still in the van, fight their way through Rock Soldiers and robots and other Dimension X monsters. The captive Turtles are freed just in time for the big battle... where a somewhat brainwashed Vernon (actually, it turns out Vernon was under the employ of Sachs the whole movie... there's a line about Sachs paying a whole hell of a lot better than the news station) and Baxter are mutated into Bebop and Rocksteady. Splinter joins the fight. At one point it almost looks like it's going to end like the first movie (Splinter taking him out), but it's more the Turtles' teamwork that saves the day. And April knocks down Karai for the second movie in a row. Wowzers.
* Good guys win, bad guys lose (though there's a spark of hope in the Vernon-Bebop), what's left of the Technodrome is sent back to Dimension X with Krang-Shredder and Bebop and Rocksteady and the whole crew of Rock Soldiers. April gives Raphael a big makeout-caliber kiss and everybody goes for pizza at Pizza Hut while a scared staff presides over it. Father and daughter reunion with April and Splinter, who now "remembers" it all. Think, the schwarma scene from Avengers, but silly.
* After the credits scene of an invasion force of Krang-like Utroms in Dimension X getting ready to invade Earth, Leatherhead on some kind of mass leashes (think, the Alien Queen from AVP). There is MULTIPLE Technodromes rolling forth, and some of what look like floating Technodrome orbs.

As you see in this new movie i will be an alien brain just like i was in the 2003 tv series(in the current series on Nickelodeon i am human). I will be named Krang and i will be inside a big yellow robot with sunglasses and red underwear just like the original Krang from the 1987 series. But i wll also have another robot that will be more similar to the shredder apperance. My old henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady will appear too(and they are coming to Nick series in season 3). As you can see I WILL BE AWESOME IN THIS MOVIE!!!
Oroku Saki was Shredder in like, 2 books of the comic? He was then played by some spirit or something, a chick, and even Rapheal. The 80s cartoon is where the stuck with Saki. In the 2003 series, he was a Krang looking alien creature. Point is, each adaptation will do its own thing. As long as it works for the sake of story, why hate on it?

And in the current Nick series i am human again just like i was in 87 cartoon but now i am bald and my face is burned!!! Also my eye is red. The current series in season 2 episode 14 so far and episode 15 will air on april 27. You can watch all the episodes of my new series here

This is exactly how the turtles should look in 2014


This is exactly how the Turtles should look.
See Michaelangelo (#1) and Leonardo (#1), in the attached pictures, and compare it to that shit that was in the trailer.

Not humanoids or alien looking, but like Turtles.
They have snouts (as the turtles should have), and not gigantic nostrils and Angelina Jolie lips.

Alright, that does look a lot better. I was mostly talking about Leo's gear though. That bamboo looking armor is sick
I think we all know why Megan Fox is in this movie.

Because it's a mildly serious movie that doesn't require any real acting talent?

Kidding aside, I don't really care for her, either, but I don't think it'll make a big difference and I think this looks like a fun movie. The old-school flicks were cool when I was a kid, but I like the new look and the more serious tone of this. Y'all need to stop being so analytical and just enjoy it for what it is. We've seen a lot variations of the Turtles throughout the years, and this is just one more. No need to snub your nose because it isn't the same thing we got 20-something years ago. If that were the case, why even make a new movie? :rolleyes:

I'd love to see Baxter Stockman and Krang in this, but I don't see it happening.

UPDATE: Johnny Knoxville to play Leo's voice and Tony Shalhoub (from the TV series "Monk") will play Splinter.

I think they look just fine. When they mutated they didn't just become giant turtles. They became somewhat humanoid. I think my problem with this is that I'd just prefer them to be animated. I remember hating how they looked at first but then I realized that I just don't want a "realistic" version of them. I'm fine with 2d animated turtles.

Has anybody seen the new trailer that just came out? Interestingly enough, they use Skrillex's "Reptile" theme in it from the MK9 album.
I noticed that, too, and stopped watching the trailer as soon as the song started. Felt way out of place.
I just got back from watching it.
It went way beyond my expectations.

The CGI was cheesey at times, especially in brighter environments, but for the most part the turtles looked great.
The fight scenes were godlike though. Splinter vs Shredder was the highlight of the movie for me.

I'd say people need to put their Bayphobia aside for this one.
Bay produced the film, which is even worse because it means that he has creative input, and the film got a 20% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Even the cheesy 90s film at least got a 40% critic rating.
I'll wait until it comes out on Netflix.
I hear it ranks as one of the worst films in the history of mankind. I won't even spend money on making my own opinion. Shit looks dreadful
Guarantee that most of the people who shit on it, have not even seen it.
I've just watched the last bit of it. It's not for me.

Cliched modern American cinema full off weird sound effects.

I won't watch the rest, but why has Shredder got Lord Zeds face.
I still haven't seen this one, I've been stuck on Guardians lately (4 times), but I want to squeeze it in eventually. It looks like an interesting take on the turtles, and if I don't like it, I still have the comics, current show, older shows, and older movies. And if you want your childhood ruined, just go watch The Next Mutation.
Guarantee that most of the people praising it are blindly defending their purchasing decision, because they don't want to admit that it was terrible.
