We’re a little over two months out from the August release of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, and Paramount has released five new inky posters for the movie.
And if you recall the 2012 marketing for The Wolverine, these designs may seem a little familiar, cribbing Japanese brushstroke style from that film’s series of artful and elegant character posters. The Shredder design, in particular, makes it clear that this time, old iron face is going to be rocking a lot more hardware on his hands.
As a bonus, Paramount also included a poster from artist Mike Johnston, giving us the color that the official posters are missing for Austin’s HOPE Outdoor gallery.
From the film’s synopsis:
“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. Based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Characters Created by PETER LAIRD and KEVIN EASTMAN with a Screenplay by JOSH APPELBAUM & ANDRÉ NEMEC and EVAN DAUGHERTY, Producer MICHAEL BAY (the blockbuster Transformers franchise) and director JONATHAN LIEBESMAN (Wrath of the Titans) bring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the popular franchise that has captivated audiences of all ages for decades, into the 21st century.”
