Well, the Super Bowl 50 trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows is as absurdly ridiculous as the one that dropped back in December. Like that earlier spot, once again the serious shift in tone compared to 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is on full display, making it clear the series has made a serious left turn into knowing camp reminiscent of the 1980s cartoon. Watch it here.
I expect people still annoyed by the Beastie Boys’ lawsuit against the toy company that used their song “Girls” without permission will be annoyed by the presence of the Beastie’s songs in this and also the Star Trek Beyond trailer. Feel free to argue that in comments but I’m 100% pro Beasties licensing their songs for films as long as they choose to do so. But anyway, Turtles! In the sky!
