It's been five long months since the first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows debuted way back in December. Thankfully, we'll be getting new footage very soon. Earlier today, Stephen Amell posted a new trailer preview on his official Facebook page, which offers a tiny glimpse of new footage and reveals that the second full trailer will debut on Monday, April 11. This 15-second video doesn't offer a ton of new action, but we do get another look at Stephen Amell's iconic character, Casey Jones, along with Megan Fox's April O'Neil and very one hungry turtle.
Both Casey and April are seen in the turtles' underground sewer lair, where Mikey (Noel Fisher) is busy scarfing down pizza, four slices at a time. Last month, we saw a new TV trailer, which gave us our best look yet at the villainous Krang, who we recently learned will be voiced by Fred Armisen. Krang is just one of the several new additions to the sequel, with several beloved characters making their big-screen debut.
Tyler Perry has come aboard to star as Baxter Stockman along with Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (Stephen Farrelly). They will be joined by original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stars Megan Fox (April O'Neil), Will Arnett (Vern Fenwick), William Fichtner (Eric Sacks), Alan Ritchson (Raphael), Noel Fisher (Michelangelo), Pete Ploszek (Leonardo) and Jeremy Howard (Donatello). New cast members include Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, Brian Tee as Shredder and Brittany Ishibashi as Karai.
Dave Green 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. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is slated for release on June 3, putting it up against Universal Pictures' Top Secret Untitled Lonely Island Movie. It's possible that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 could put up even bigger numbers than its predecessor this summer, but we'll have to wait and see.
Production on the action sequel wrapped in New York last August. Check out the brief preview below before the second full trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows debuts on Mondy. Do you think Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows could be one of this summer's biggest hits?
