Check out the cool promo that Paramount launched for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with "Legend Of The Yokai."
A website has also been launched which features additional art (see below).
Before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles emerged from their lair to protect New York City from the sinister Shredder and his Foot Clan soldiers, there were four heroic "Kappa" (ancient turtle warriors who vowed to protect a humble village from the demonic Yokai).
Paramount Pictures is taking movie fans back in time, to an age of tradition, mystery and magic. In a collaboration with distinguished artists from around the world, "The Legend of the Yokai" tells the epic tale of a village over-run by an evil warlord and his army of demon monsters. When all hope seems lost, the wishes of an innocent girl summon forth the heroic Kappa, who abide by the pillars of honour, courage, wisdom and brotherhood, fighting side-by-side to vanquish this fearsome evil.
Featuring artwork based on these four ideals created by over 30 artists from 13 different countries, "The Legend of the Yokai" brings an ancient epic to life and connects it to a new generation of heroes, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" has an August 8, 2014 release directed by Jonathan Liebesman, produced by Michael Bay starring Megan Fox as April O'Neil, William Fichtner as Shredder, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, and Whoopi Goldberg as Bernadette Thompson.
The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.
