Paramount Pictues has been counting down to the new trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by inviting us to tweet our favourite Heroes in a Half-Shell in order to unlock a series of character posters. This morning saw the arrival of Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael [see here], and now Donatello’s one-sheet has been unveiled, meaning we’ve also got a brand new trailer for the reboot….
“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.
