We’re less than a month away from Jonathan Liebesman’s (Wrath of the Titans) reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and it has already become one of the most divisive movies of the year. Drastic changes to the hero’s appearance and origin story have many fans seething, and from what we’ve seen of the film thus far, it doesn’t exactly inspire a lot of confidence or feelings that this is going to be totally awesome. In an attempt to win over public support, Platinum Dunes (I hope to never type those words again) has released a collection of new motion posters that probably won’t change anyone’s mind.
Studios seem to think that people like motion posters, because they’re everywhere—yesterday saw the release of one for The Expendables 3—and I’m not entirely sure what makes these different from a standard movie clip, except maybe the annoying shape that makes it hard to tell what’s going on. But whatever, they’re don’t appear to be going anywhere and are something we have to get used to.
