CLIP: The New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Love Beyoncé, Drake, Tom Brady & Guy Fieri

Judging by the recent trailer for Seth Rogen’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, the new take on everyone’s favourite pizza-loving reptile siblings looks downright cowabunga-worthy. In fact, our money’s on it proving to be one of the most fun films of the year when it hits cinemas on August 2. Now, with the release of a new clip (see above), our anticipation has only continued to climb as we get a clearer sense of the deft comedic touch employed in this new incarnation; the kind of character-building humour with heart that was so woefully absent from the Michael Bay-produced Ninja Turtles outings of 2014 and 2016.

The new clip sees our heroes leaping across New York rooftops on what Leonardo describes as a “very important mission,” courtesy of Master Splinter. He goes on to solemnly explain to his brothers that they “must use stealth and cunning to infiltrate the human world and retrieve… Go-Gurt!” 

Go-Gurt? It seems this version of Leo likes to inject a little action-hero drama into proceedings, even if said proceedings happen to just be a trip to the local grocery store. Standing on the rooftop before they tick off the items on the shopping list from Splinter, Leo reminds Raph, Mikey and Donnie of the warning their sensei gave them when it comes to people: “Humans are the demon scum of the earth. Avoid them, don’t say, “Hi.” They lust to murder that which is different to them. To interact with them is to die.”

It sounds harsh but we understand. Mikey responds, saying, “I think humans seem kind of cool to be honest.” Then the rest of the turtles chime in expressing their appreciation for Beyoncé, Guy Fieri, Drake and Tom Brady. It’s hard to argue, particularly with the first two. 

But whatever your thoughts on Tom Brady and Drake, the scene makes it clear Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem will have the most relatable version of the heroes in a half shell we’ve seen in years. Maybe ever. And for that reason we’ll be at ready to go when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem lands in cinemas on August 2. Be sure to check out the clip above.
