To be honest, I can't quite recall if I liked the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie or not. It's been quite a few years since it came out and almost as long since I saw it last. Consequently, I don't have a lot of nostalgic memories of it to taint my opinion of the new version being produced now and scheduled to hit theaters March 30th. That said, I can tell you that these pics from the film, posted the other day over at Comic Book Resources, look pretty cool.

Oh, in the interest of full disclosure, I also am a staff writer at CBR, just so you know. Ok, now we can move on. The pics, according to the article, are supposedly exclusive to CBR (although, I think I've seem them elsewhere) and depict the Turtles in various action scenes and situations including Leonardo squaring off for a fight, the turtles ready for a fight and getting a call for help from their intrepid sidekick April.

The article also mentions some other details about the production including some tidbits dropped by producer Thomas Grey and director Kevin Munroe that the new film will stick closer to the original vision created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book. In addition, they won't be infusing the new film with as much humor as the first films had. Instead, they will adapt a more serious tone for the film in the hopes of broadening it's appeal. Interesting. Enjoy the pics.
