Paramount Pictures is set to release a new movie titled “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem,” directed by Jeff Rowe. This upcoming film is not the only one about heroic pizza-loving turtles, but it is sure to generate a lot of excitement and anticipation based on its first trailer.
The movie tells the story of four humanoid turtles named Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Raphael who were mutated by sewer ooze and were adopted by master rat martial artist, Splinter. In the Ninja Turtles’ story, these brothers work secretly to keep the streets of New York City safe by fighting their foes, including Bebop and Rocksteady. However, after years of being in the shadows, they want to be accepted and loved as regular kids in their city, just like their friend April O’Neil.
The trailer for Mutant Mayhem gives viewers a sneak peek into the turtles’ early years as they learn to use their skills to fight for good. The most striking aspect of the film is its beautiful sketch-like art direction, which gives it a unique and distinct visual aesthetic. The movie’s gritty and textured visuals set it apart from other recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles projects like Netflix’s Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The film features an impressive cast of voice actors, including Jackie Chan as Splinter, Micah Abbey as Donatello, Shamon Brown Jr. as Michelangelo, Nicolas Cantu as Leonardo, and Brady Noon as Raphael. Other notable voice actors include Hannibal Buress, Rose Byrne, Ice Cube, Natasia Demetriou, Giancarlo Esposito, Post Malone, Paul Rudd, and Maya Rudolph.
Overall, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem promises to be an exciting and visually stunning addition to the franchise. Fans can look forward to its theatrical release on August 4th, 2023.
