Obviously enjoying the internet furor over the film’s character design choices, Paramount has released two new hi-res images pulled from the trailer for its upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (August 8) flick, directed by Jonathan Liebesman. One shot in particular offers an up-close (or if you’re in the outraged aesthete camp, too-close) look at Leonardo, who is voiced by Johnny Knoxville.
The official synopsis reads: The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder (William Fichtner) and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.
