Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer

Announced sometime last year and finally coming to fruition, the newest series' incarnation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is almost upon us. With that, Nickelodeon has released a new trailer to promote their upcoming new show based on the 80's Heroes-In-A-Half-Shell franchise.

A different take indeed with the interesting CGI animation work and "Booyakasha!" joke. Thankfully  it seems to retain the same formula and basic origins as before, and no Michael Bay treatment to be found here either thank goodness (and that one got shelved recently). Be sure to stay tuned and vigilant for more updates as they come.

Coinciding with the release of new merchandise, the new TMNT Nickelodeon series is due for release this fall 2012.

The next Metal Gear game, a spinoff title starring Raiden called Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, is due for release sometime next year. For more on the story, visit the source post at or Eurogamer!

Michael Bay's TMNT movie plans get halted

Whether you take it as good news or bad news, the majority of the fanbase will probably be relieved to hear it.

According to The Hollywood Reporter as well as Comic Book Resources, Michael Bay's intended reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise has been put to a stop, getting pushed back from a December 2013 release all the way to sometime in May 2014. The pre-production work being done for the movie has been placed in shutdown, as staff and crew working on the project have been laid off, most likely due to negative reaction from fans over the "alien treatment" Bay intends to give to the heroes-in-a-half-shell. This also comes off the tails of Paramounts other woes, which include delaying films World War Z and G.I.Joe Retaliation. For more info on the story can be found via the source post at THR and CBR.
