Michael Bay; filmmaker who just loves explosions or a man who's out to ruin absolutely everything you loved about the 80's? The answer becomes increasingly clear the more he opens his mouth, as he announced the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) will be receiving yet another reboot. Which puts the franchise at around its 30th or so reboot.
This time they won't even be mutants, but will be aliens, or possibly alien mutants. Who really cares at this point, right? As long as you pay 9-plus dollars to go see it.
Hopefully it will be rated Arg for Pirates...
Bay made the announcement at a Nickelodeon event last week, letting it be known that the movie will come out Christmas 2013.
If you're unfamiliar with Michael Bay, he's been the filmmaker responsible for the Transformer trilogy which sparked a wave of hatred from long time fans of the series. Seeing Bumblebee urinate oil on Jon Turturro was too much for those who were hoping the live action movie would deliver.
The announcement has trended high on Twitter, with most people not pleased...
Does Michael Bay know that the "M" in TMNT stands for MUTANT. I suppose the new movie abbrev. will be TANT?
Michael Bay is an idiot and I don't like his movies either. Just leave TMNT alone.
Michael Bay is ruining my childhood one franchise at a time. In his TMNT movie the turtles will be aliens; not mutants.
So Michael Bay is remaking TMNT and is making them aliens from another planet instead of mutants. Im more upset about this then I should be.
Anytime I hear of something ridiculous happening in the world of Hollywood, I can't help but think of this Kevin Smith monologue. Explaining the creative process he had with a producer on the Superman movie that could have been. Cause the only thing a movie ever needs is a giant fucking spider...
On a personal note, all will be forgiven if he can somehow bring Vanilla Ice back to conduct this little gem -
