Michael Bay is synonymous with making spectacular, blockbuster VFX films. From Bad Boys to Transformers, he is Hollywood's king of explosions. The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer is vintage Bay. Though the film is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, Bay's style is clearly evident. From the sweeping shots of the New York City skyline to the quick edits of the turtles fight with The Foot Clan, there's no doubt this film will be action packed.

Here are the five most Michael Bay moments from the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer:

3New York City Gets Pummeled

New York City TMNT

The turtles are true New York City creatures. From their lair in the sewers, to the fight in the subways, to rescuing April O'Neil on the rooftops, the city is front and center in the trailer. Big city action scenes are trademark Michael Bay. While we don't know if New York City faces mass catastrophe like in Armageddon, it looks like the Big Apple will take a beating in TMNT.
