New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV spot teases origin story: watch now

“Created as weapons”

A new TV spot has arrived online from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which hints at a possible new origin story for our half-shelled heroes.

As the turtle-conducted voiceover exclaims, “we were created as weapons”, although by whom, remains to be revealed.

What we do know is that they’re now fighting for the greater good, because although “the world would never except us… one day it would need us.”

Take a look at the new spot, below…



It’s interesting that Will Arnett’s character seems so thrown by the fact that Michaelangelo can talk, and not that he’s a six-foot, anthropomorphic turtle, but there we go… he’s clearly led an interesting life.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman and co-starring Megan Fox, William Fichtner and Johnny Knoxville, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will open in the UK on 17 October 2014.
