First Look: TMNT Mo-Cap and Foot Soldiers


After much internal struggle, I have decided to come clean with all of our loyal Nerd Readers.  We here at Nerd Bastards are secretly aligned with Michael Bay and have dedicated our souls to helping him destroy both your mind and childhood via spreading the disease that is the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film.  In what we and Bay refer to as “Stage 4”, we’re circulating some more TMNT set pics.  This time around, you can see the actors who play the titular turtles all gussied up in their motion-capture suits, along with what appear to be a few of Shredder’s Foot Soldiers.  Check it all out below.

And now, you will forget everything I have said while still retaining those images in your mind.  Continue your life as normal and don’t forget to buy tickets to Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when it arrives on June 6th, 2014.


Thanks to /film for the heads-up.

  • … i think im going to like the original more…

  • Why the hell are you bitching? The original (the first 2 at any rate) are amazing, but Ooze and III’s animatronics were fairly laughable. Were you REALLY expecting there to be dudes in suits? I wasn’t and I’d be surprised if there was. Mocap is the way to go for this. You’re the kind of people that would have preferred Transformers be done with miniatures instead of CG.

    The mocap suits look amazing to me and the fact that they’re doing anything is cool. I doubt they’ll make it dark and gritty like it should be, but that’s to be expected.

    The Foot Clan look like Klingons. Today is a good day to die.

    So over all the graphics in these films today.. over use of graphics over paid actors and decades of remakes (no originality)
