Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem Second Trailer Arrives

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have gone from unlikely beginnings to become one of the most popular multi-media franchises on the planet. Starting from underground comics, they have gone on to reinvent themselves for subsequent generations. Their latest incarnation is in the form of an animated feature film (not for the first time).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, is in some ways the most radical reinvention yet. For a start, the four turtles are voiced by actual teenagers for the first time. And then there is the incredibly stylish animation, which owes an obvious debt to Spider-Man Into The Spiderverse.

After years hiding in the shadows, the Ninja Teens set out to win the hearts of New York through heroic acts. With the help of their new human friend April O'Neil, they take on a mysterious crime syndicate. But they soon find themselves in over their heads when an army of not-so-friendly mutants is unleashed upon them.

Mutant Mayhem is directed by Jeff Rowe (The Mitchells Vs The Machines) and co-directed by Kyler Spears, with a screenplay by Rowe, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit. The film is produced by Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver, with Ramsay McBean and Josh Fagen as executive producers.

It stars the voices of Micah Abbey, Shamon Brown Jr., Hannibal Buress, Rose Byrne, Nicolas Cantu, John Cena, Jackie Chan, Ice Cube, Natasia Demetriou, Ayo Edebiri, Giancarlo Esposito, Post Malone, Brady Noon, Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Maya Rudolph.

The new trailer shows the Ninja Teens let loose in the Big Apple, dreaming of one day being accepted by New Yorkers. We also get to see their interaction with their mentor Splinter (voiced by Jackie Chan) which like in Rise Of The Ninja Turtles seems very much like a family dynamic. They meet up with April O'Neil (who here seems closer in age to the Turtles) and come face to face with the mutant army.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem opens in cinemas in the US and Canada on August 2 and in the UK on August 4.
