Look–if you are against Michael Bay’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and have been against it from the beginning, then the new trailer probably won’t change your mind that much.

Even still, the newest trailer for the film is out and whether or not you are a fan of the film, there are some new footage of fan favorite characters, like the tutrtles sensei, Splinter (Danny Woodburn and voiced by Tony Shalhoub) and Shredder (William Fichtner). There’s also a funny (ironic?) line in the trailer in which Vernon Fenwick (Will Arnett) asks April (Megan Fox) if the turtles are aliens. “No, that’s stpuid. They’re turtles.” Funny, seeing how it was rumored that the turtles were going to be remade into aliens. You’ll also see Whoopi Goldberg as Bernadette Thompson, possibly a version of the character who was April’s boss, Burne Thompson.
