Here’s the first look at the Michael Bay-ified version of the iconic comic quartet. Looks like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been toughened up, a departure from the franchise’s more kid-friendly animated past more akin to the Turtles’ ’90s-era live-action iterations. Megan Fox and William Fichtner star in the origin story, which Jonathan Liebesman directs. Paramount releases the pic August 8, a busy date on the summer schedule with New Line/Village Roadshow’s Into The Storm (which also dropped its teaser today), Disney’s The Hundred-Foot Journey and Universal’s Scarlett Johansson-starrer Lucy also set to premiere that day.
