The Song In The ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’ Trailer Is The Perfect Fit For The Film — VIDEO
It isn’t too often that you see a new movie trailer and think, “My god that is a thing of perfection,” but the new trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 really is a thing of beauty. The thing that makes this trailer even more amazing than any of scenes snippets in it that have me drooling for more turtle power is the music. Because the song in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle 2 trailer is absolutely perfect for the movie.
So why is “No Sleep ‘Till Brooklyn,” a song the Beastie Boys made famous in 1986, such a perfect song for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 soundtrack? Because those reborn turtles are from the sewers of New York City. With their city of origin in mind, it only seems right that these four would fight crime to the backdrop of music that made their city famous.
OK, fine. New York City was famous before the Beastie Boys or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came around, but it does seem fitting that these three rappers from Brooklyn would sing the song for the trailer about four turtles from the same city. From the Beastie Boys’ hit record, Licensed to Ill, the song embodies the street smarts and tough talent that these Renaissance-inspired turtles have. So as they’re swinging high above their city of birth, it’s only appropriate that they would be fighting crime to the sounds of another fearsome group that came from their city.
The new movie, set to premiere on June 3, will feature all four of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back on the streets of the New York City and ready to take on the evildoers who are getting in the way of making their city great. Joining them in live-action are Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Laura Linney, Stephen Amell, and Tyler Perry. With a powerhouse lineup of amazing actors like that, there’s even more to get excited about for this sequel than ever before.
So get ready for this summer blockbuster, and keep that turtle power in check until then.
