Cowabunga! The highly anticipated ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ trailer has finally arrived and it’s epic. Click to WATCH — but beware of explosions, giant turtles (they look different!) and pure awesomeness.

All of your childhood dreams have come true with the brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer. Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello and Leonardo are back, and they’re saving the day, alongside Megan Fox.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Trailer Is Here — Watch!

Will Arnett stopped by the Today show this morning, March 27, to debut the brand new teaser for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and now, we have the full-length trailer! In true turtle spirit, the actor who’s starring in Michael Bay‘s highly anticipated film, which hits theaters on August 8th of this year, brought pizza with him to promote the film.

What’s more exciting than pizza? The trailer. It’s downright awesome with explosions, giant turtles — they look a lot different! — and Megan Fox who plays April O’Neil, one of the best news reporters in New York City and the turtles’ friend. Well, not at first.

Are you excited for the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ movie?

Michelangelo (he’s the turtle with the orange mask), shows up behind April (Megan Fox) who freaks out, but he tells her to calm down because “it’s just a mask.” Then he takes off his mask, which we all know barely covers anything but his eyes, and reveals his face. And, well, he’s a giant turtle. Right before the trailer wraps, Megan Fox’s character passes out, but by movie’s end, we know these scary-looking guys will save the day. And they need to because of the evil Shredder! “Heroes are not born. They’re created,” says the villain (William Fichtner) who’s the teenaged-turtles’ archenemy. The blockbuster hit stars Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard and Alan Ritchson, as the sewer-dwelling heroes, and also Whoopi Goldberg who plays April’s co-worker at the news station. HollywoodLifers, are you excited for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Actor William Fichtner narrates the trailer revealing a world where ‘crime, violence and fear have run rampant.’

There are shoot-outs on the subway and multiple images of sections of Manhattan being destroyed.

Megan plays April O’Neil, a fearless reporter in the midst all the New York City chaos.

In one scene, she uses her cell phone to film the action as a huge battle takes place at a train station.

Fichtner continues by telling Megan, ‘People want heroes, Miss O’Neil. But heroes are not born. They’re created.’

As the city continues to spiral out of control, one of the four Ninja Turtles (Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello) is seen spinning through the sky and landing on a building next to Megan.

Another one of the crime-fighting turtles appears behind her and tries calming her down after noticing she is visibly frightened.

‘Don’t freak out. It’s just a mask,’ he says while removing his disguise and revealing his reptilian face.

Looking exquisitely gorgeous, Megan then sighs and faints to the floor.

Produced by Michael Bay, the trailer includes plenty of his trademark explosions and action sequences.

The actress previously worked with Bay on the first two Transformers films, but had a falling out with the director after comparing him to Hitler in a press interview.

She was subsequently replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in that franchise’s third sequel.

In a GQ article, Bay later revealed it was executive producer Steven Spielberg who demanded Megan be cut from the film for her comment.

Last month, the brunette beauty gave birth to her second son, Bodhi, with husband David Austin Green.

The couple also have an 18-month-old boy, Noah.

Megan’s latest film is a reboot of the original 1990 movie, which grossed over $200 million and spawned three sequels.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles also stars Will Arnett, Whoopi Goldberg and Alan Ritchson and hits theaters on August 8th.

The new trailer for the live-action revival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has drawn a mostly positive response from those that have seen it – but not everybody is bursting with enthusiasm.

The general consensus on Twitter seems to be that the inclusion of Megan Fox was a wise move, with some users saying her involvement will give them extra reason to fork out to see the film.

However, Michael Bay’s status as the movie’s producer is giving others cause for concern, given the poor critical reception (despite a massive box office haul) for his Transformers efforts.

Hundreds of thousands of fans flocked online to see the brief teaser when it debuted yesterday (March 27), and if you haven’t checked it out yet, you can see it in all its glory above.

“Heroes are not born. They’re created.” That’s one of the lessons of a new teaser trailer for the Michael Bay-produced “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie — although in this instance, one might say they’re re-created.

Based on the Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird comic books of the early 1980s, the new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie represents the latest incarnation of the four anthropomorphic reptilian vigilantes, who over the years have appeared in animated and live-action TV series and movies, and spawned countless toys and other merchandise.

From the looks of the trailer, which you can watch above, director Jonathan Liebesman (“Wrath of the Titans,” “Battle Los Angeles”) is hewing closer to the dark, gritty tone of the original comics.

The clip opens with a voice-over from William Fichtner, who is rumored to play the villain Shredder, lamenting, “Crime, violence and fear have run rampant. Our great city is being destroyed.” Meanwhile, masked men fire automatic weapons in a subway station and an explosion rocks a skyscraper.

Fichtner then teases a different origin story for the turtles, who in most depictions are the result of an industrial-waste accident. In Liebesman’s telling, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

After that brief setup, the teaser offers a few flashes of the turtles in action, taking out the gunmen as April O’Neil (Megan Fox) tries to snap a shot of them on her smartphone. Later, the green-skinned heroes chase bad guys down a snow-swept mountain.

While the new “Ninja Turtles” looks to be more forbidding than previous film and TV portrayals, the teaser also includes a few injections of humor, as when Michelangelo (Noel Fisher) tries to calm O’Neil by removing his face mask — and proves quite unsuccessful.

The film also stars Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek and Danny Woodburn.

Paramount Pictures will release “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” on Aug. 8.
