One of the Los Angeles Clippers takes a mean tumble on the court while playing against the New York Knicks in the latest trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. And it's all due to the brothers eating pizza up in the rafters. But that's not the highlight of this latest sneak peek at the upcoming sequel. In theaters next weekend, the real scene stealers of TMNT 2 prove to be BeBop and Rocksteady.
After some shenanigans had by the Turtles, this mutant warthog and rhino show up to literally hijack the trailer. And it proves that these two mean business. The pair start out as NYC street thugs but are transformed forever by the diabolical Baxter Stockman. Also showing up for the first time on the big screen are evil villain /teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-2-tv-spot-krang/Krang and his metallic host body Kraang. They are joined by reboot newcomer Casey Jones and an all-new, super-powered Shredder.
After super villain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop and Rocksteady, to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: The notorious Krang. We don't get to see Krang in this latest teaser from Youtube, but we do get some exciting new footage of the Turtles in action.
Original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stars Alan Ritchson (Raphael), Noel Fisher (Michelangelo), Pete Ploszek (Leonardo) and Jeremy Howard (Donatello) all return to reprise their roles as the Turtles, along with Megan Fox (April O'Neill) and Will Arnett (Vern Fenwick). Tyler Perry has come aboard to play Baxter Stockman, alongside Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, Brian Tee as Shredder and Brittany Ishibashi as Karai. Laura Linney also joins the cast as a law enforcement officer.
Dave Green (Earth to Echo) directs from a script by André Nemec and Josh Appelbaum. The screenwriters also wrote last year's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which took in $485 million worldwide from a $125 million budget, and they also wrote the 2011 blockbuster Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, which was released by Paramount. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is slated for release on June 3, putting it up against Universal Pictures' Popstar: Never Stop Stopping. While we continue the countdown towards next weekend's release, take a look at this thrilling new footage.
