Welcome back to Best Movie Trailers of the Week, a column where we handpick the best new movie trailers that have arrived online over the past week.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The latest trailer for Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is still a bit all over the place, but there are enough comprehensive story details and fully fleshed-out moments to make the piece quite engaging rather than just a one-note voiceover paired with a haphazard montage like the last one.
That opening sequence alone accomplishes quite a bit. It’s got some solid action, functions as a powerful reveal and shows off humor that really works. The trailer does lose a little steam at the midpoint, which doesn’t help Shredder’s big moment, but as soon as that electronic beat kicks in around the one-minute 50-second mark, it powers straight through to the post-title scene, which rocks the comedic timing to get you to crack a smile.
