It has been a trailer-tastic couple of days. We've seen teasers for the likes of The BFG, The Legend of Tarzan and, now, coming out of hiding is the first trailer for next Summer's sequel to last Summer's live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows.

The iconic ninja turtles received their first live-action big-screen outing last year, since 1993's disastrous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III and, whilst the Michael Bay produced adaption didn't fare well with critics, the film did make just shy of $500 million at the worldwide box office so a sequel was always inevitable. However, it's coming sooner rather than later as the first trailer for TMNT 2, subtitled Out of the Shadows, has been released.

After Paramount debuted a short trailer tease, the full thing leaked, so it the studio have just gone and released the official version online. I was not a big fan of the 2014 version and, honestly, I'm not digesting this trailer well either. The film certainly looks potentially a lot better than its predecessor and newcomers Sheamus and Gary Anthony Williams' Rocksteady and Bebop look pretty cool. Fan-favourite character Casey Jones is also being introduced but it seems as though we're in for more of the same: bad dialogue, poorly shot action and lots ofover-the-top, bloated CG-bullshit. However, with new fan-favourite characters being introduced, and a new director on-board, if the studio listened to audience's complaints from the last film, this has the potential to be good.

With Dave Green taking over direcing duties from Jonathan Liebesman, with the returning voice talents of Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard and Johnny Knoxville as the turtles and starring Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Gary Anthony Williams, WWE Supertsar Sheamus and Stephen Amell, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows is set to hit cinemas next Summer, on June 3rd, 2016.
