The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles official first trailer is here and I must say, it looks awesome! When I first heard Michael Bay would be lending his producer’s hand into the mix, I was slightly worried. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of the craziness that is the Transformers franchise, I just didn’t want it to look similar.

Director Jonathan Liebesman, the man who directed action flicks like Wrath of the Titans and Battle Los Angeles, is taking a stab at our nostalgia by mixing live action and CG together. Another decision that had me worried until I saw this first trailer and fell in love. The third and final concern I had was the casting choice for April O’Neil. Megan Fox was definitely not the first name to come to mind, but I’m actually not mad about it.
