First Look At Pre-CGI Turtles Michelangelo, Leonardo & Donatello

Access Hollywood

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” fans are getting the first glimpse of three of the mutated reptile warriors – minus the CGI magic.

On Wednesday, Megan Fox (who stars as April O’Neil, the human pal of the turtles) was photographed shooting scenes (that included some headline-making trampoline jumping) in New York City with co-star Will Arnet in the Michael Bay-produced movie reboot.

Today, three of the Turtles, Noel Fisher (Michelangelo), Pete Ploszek, (Leonardo) and Jeremy Howard (Donatello) were spotted in New York with filming a scene that could be Shredder’s thugs, the Foot Clan. (Cinema, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)

Haha, that pic looks great, yet I am still intrigued in seeing how the Turtles actually look.

They look like they are chained up. At first i thought it was a harness for like acrobatics but if you look close the hands are bound with giant rings that are way bigger than the guys wrists. and the cable goes from the hands to the feet with the same looking rings on the ankles. so that leads me to believe they are suppose to be like captured in the scene since the CGI will make the hands and feet much larger so the rings on wrists and ankles will be filled in by the larger cgi turtle bodies. also the thug on the left has what looks like to be an animal catchers rig with the pole and neck loop

Can't imagine how annoying it must feel to have a huge shell strapped to your back.

Back in my day, they had to actually make and wear physical ninja turtle costumes. Not this fancy Cg stuff.

I am interested in seeing what they look like though. Transformers was a good "turn off your brain" movie.

id say transformers wasnt that good. i love transformers tv shows and even much of bays older works but those movies were meh at best and the worst movie ever made at worst ( T3 ).

im interested to see how this turns out but im very disappointed with the CG. update the old costumes and call it a day

T3 the worst ever made really? I loved Transformers 1 and 3, 2 was meh but still enjoyable.

I was actually hoping that they were going ro make them wear costumes just updated to modern times to look cooler.

That's what I thought they were actually going to do at first. I was a little disappointed when I heard they were doing it this way instead...

I want to see how the turtles will actually look. Say what you will about the original movies, the costumers and puppetry were awesome.

i like the original costumes they used in the 90s. Probably would look better than this cgi their trying out with TMNT.

they look like they were captured, and raphael is not included, it seems they will make raphael more badass than he ever was.
