Amid the fever of living cinema superheroes like C apitán America , Iron Man or X-Men “, the Ninja Turtles arrive ready to claim their space with a plot dotted with humor and explosive starring Megan Fox.
“There is room for a little more crazy antiheroes” said director Jonathan Liebesman during a recent press conference in Los Angeles to introduce the film, which opens this Friday in Mexico, the United States and most of Latin America.
These turtles make “a parody of superheroes” and the only goal of the film “is to entertain, with no other intention,” said South African filmmaker.
In the film, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo-whose names pay tribute to artists of the Renaissance will try to stop the gangFoot Clan , led by the monster Shredder , threatening the city of New York.
The four reptiles have the help of journalist April O’Neil, played by Fox and TV camera and Vernon suitor, played by Will Arnett.

“We are going to do the same this weekend,” forward.
