Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Leonardo does his best to scare Megan Fox's April O'Neil Paramount Pictures

The trailer of the latest reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released on Thursday and it did not fail to disappoint fans.

The CGI-based turtles look more creepy than cool. Watch the trailer below:

There are plenty of things to be annoyed about, says David Sims of The Wire:

"The often-wooden Megan Fox is not an exciting choice as plucky reporter April O'Neill. Shredder has been re-imagined from 'terrifying metal-clad Japanese ninja' to 'corporate villain played by William Fichtner' (although he does briefly eye a Shredder-style suit of armour).The turtles themselves are looming CGI monsters with creepy lips that no one would ever accuse of being adorable."

Here are some of the hate-tweets from fans, on the trailer:

The film is directed by Jonathan Liebesman and is slated for a US release on 16 May, 2014.
