Today, Paramount Pictures decided to release the trailer for the much hyped Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. The Michael Bay-produced film will star Megan Fox as news reporter April O’ Neil, which is interesting considering Michael Bay is the reason Fox was axed from the Transformers films.

The turtles were a HUGE part of my childhood, so I hope they don’t screw this up. We’ll find out when it hits theaters August 8. Plot summary can be found below.

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.
