The Ninja Turtles are back in this live-action adventure film featuring the popular sewer-dwelling, reptile ninjas Leonardo (voiced by Johnny Knoxville), Michelangelo (Noel Fisher), Donatello (Jeremy Howard), Raphael (Alan Ritchson) and their pal, roving reporter April (Megan Fox).
It has been seven years since the last TMNT film came out and this year Michael Bay has produced the latest live action version. The new film, starring Megan Fox, tells the story of four unlikely outcast brothers who rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as heroes. When darkness settles over New York City, the Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O'Neil (Fox) and her cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel the evil Shredder's plan.
