Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows trailer: Meet the turtles

Posted on

It’s been 32 years since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles first blasted onto the pop culture scene, spreading their love of pizza and saying “cowabunga.” Throughout the intervening years of various comic books, cartoons, and movie franchise reboots, it would be easy to lose track of which Italian Renaissance painter-named ninja turtle is which. Luckily, the latest trailer for this summer’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows provides a quick refresher. 

Leonardo is the leader, with a blue domino mask and katana for a weapon. Raphael is in the red mask; he fights with sai and likes to knock people off motorcycles while making puns about “how I roll.” Donatello, in purple, is a technological wiz – at least by the standards of anthropomorphic  turtles. Michelangelo wears yellow and describes himself as “a triple threat: brains, brawn, and a dazzling personality.” 

The trailer pits them against mutant rhinos, plus some kind of airborne alien invasion that greatly resembles the Chitauri from The Avengers. Watch it above. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows hits theaters June 3.
