TMNT Poster

TMNT Poster

Ok, time for a confession. When I was a kid I had 4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ posters, one for every character. And I loved them. They proudly hanged on my wall for several years.

Now, for a second confession. I actually want to see the new TMNT movie. I managed to maintain myself totally uninterested in the film up until this week. But now, seeing the poster and watching the trailers, I bunch of memories came back, and with them came the long forgotten fondness for the characters. Sigh, I was hoping to avoid that.

Anyways, I guess this means the poster worked for me. But will it work for the kids? It seems a little too dark. Posters for animated movies tend to be more colorful and bright. And I don’t think the young ones remember the turtles, so they really have to sell them on watching it. We’ll see the results of the campaign this weekend, when the film opens.

I leave you with the character poster for Michaelangelo, who was the coolest of the turtles in every single incarnation. Cowabunga!
