A new full-length trailer for summer’s live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie has been released, giving fans a closer look at all four Turtles.

The trailer, released Wednesday, April 30, gives fans the first close up look at each individual Turtle: Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael. Essentially absent from the trailer is the TMNT’s rat/human mentor, Splinter, and the video relies heavily on April O’Neil, played by Megan Fox, with a voice over narration from The Shredder (William Fichtner).

Fans were eager to get a look at their favorite band of turtle superheroes, but unfortunately the new trailer does not reveal much in terms of the Turtles’ personalities. One month ago, the film was still doing reshoots, and Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shaloub had just been cast as the voices behind Leonardo and Splinter, respectively. The casting took place so late because the film was shot using motion capture performers, and the filmmakers made no guarantees that the actors who were on set filming the movie would get their voices used as well.

The trailer does reveal quite a bit about how April meets the Turtles, and shows the Turtles engaging in a few elaborate battles. The trailer also promises fans that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT for short) will be a high action thrill ride, not surprising considering it was being produced by Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Liebesman, whose previous credits include Battle Los Angeles and Wrath of the Titans.

The film also stars Will Arnett as April’s clever cameraman Vern Fenwick and Whoopi Goldberg as Bernadette Thompson. In the movie, April and Vern must team up with the Turtles to save New York City from Shredder.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be released Friday, August 8.
