While some people may still be recovering from the fallout over the first trailer footage several weeks ago for director Jonathan Liebesman‘s upcoming release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there are others who stand somewhat hopeful that the new 2014 remake will deliver, an opinion shared most recently by co-creator Kevin Eastman who was quoted last week in a piece over at CBR about the new Michael Bay-produced movie.
“It’s been a four, almost five-year journey to bring the next “Turtles” movie to life since the time we pitched it,” he says. “I know everybody is like, “Oh, Michael Bay, Michael Bay, Michael Bay, he’s gonna ruin it! He’s gonna destroy it!” But everyone I have encountered has been nothing more than incredibly sincere to try and bring the Turtles back in a way that’s new, fresh and exciting, but with total respect to everything that’s come before. I’ve read the script. I have a cameo in the move. It’s awesome — really fun.”
He also added, “What they’ve done with the film is going to make fans incredibly happy, including myself. The vision is awesome, the effects are incredible and the story will be something everybody can relate to and like. I’ll leave it out there for the fans to let us know what they like in the end, but I’m very proud to be part of it. A lot of people are going to be surprised.”
At least one criticism that came about had much ado with the application of noses, among other things. So yes, the scruitiny will continue and fans will maintain their skepticism in light of the new film which now has a new version of the first trailer making the rounds online.
It feels a little underwheming feeling like you’re watching the same thing over again. However, if Eastman says it’s worth it, then it is what it is. Right?
