UPDATE: The official version of the trailer is now available and can be seen above.
After getting a sneak peak at the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 trailer, the full thing has now leaked online a little bit early. The official version isn’t expected to drop until tomorrow, but a Facebook user has posted a bootleg copy that you can check out via the embed above.
It’s not perfect quality, of course, but it’s definitely good enough to watch and after giving it a few views, we’re feeling a little bit excited. The trailer does a solid job of easing us back into the world of everyone’s favorite Heroes in a Half-Shell, as we see the titular heroes in action once again, doing what they do best.
We also get introduced to Stephen Amell’s Casey Jones, Tyler Perry’s Baxter Stockman, fan-favorite henchmen Rocksteady and Bebop, a healthy dose of testosterone courtesy of producer Michael Bay, and, of course, a couple shots of Megan Fox looking impossibly good. Overall, it seems like more of the same, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

While not a stellar outing for the heroes, 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a mostly harmless action romp that had a few memorable moments. It also made $485 million worldwide on a budget of $125 million. Hence why we now have a sequel. It’s still too early to tell if the follow-up will be received more positively by critics than its predecessor was, but judging by this first footage, we’re feeling cautiously optimistic.
We still don’t know too much about the plot, but including characters like Jones, Bebop and Rocksteady is certainly a step in the right direction, and the action does look like it could provide some mindless fun for a couple of hours. At this point, we’ll give the film the benefit of the doubt, and hopefully the fans will, too.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is directed by David Green and hits theaters on June 3rd, 2016. Check out the new trailer above and be sure to come back tomorrow for the official version.
