Pop culture is a never-ending world of updates, teases, trailers, and hopefully releases. What’s New Wednesday is Dorkaholics’ way to keep us all up to date with what’s new across comics, tv, film, games, and more! This week, the focus is on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, Joy Ride, Elemental, and DSTLRY’s deal with French publisher Groupe Delcourt.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem Trailer Out
The first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is out now. It feels like a Nickelodeon movie that I would have watched on a Friday night during my childhood, and wouldn’t you know – Nickelodeon Movies and Point Grey Pictures are producing the film. That isn’t to knock the production down in any way, but to highlight that it’s definitely aimed at kids and in my attempt to see things from a younger perspective, I believe it’ll be a hit with young audiences.
They’ve toned down Raphael’s berserker-like rage that he’s known for in the comics, and the writing isn’t afraid to be witty as you have Master Splinter tell the Teenage Turtles not to use the words “rat” in a derogatory manner, as the brothers were expressing their frustration at Leonardo confessing to their disobedience (ratting them out).
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is on August 2, 2023. #TMNTMovie

“Groupe Delcourt has remained an essential foundation of the French speaking comic book community. We’re overjoyed to partner with them so more readers can enjoy the upcoming slate of our graphic novels by some of the most acclaimed writers and artists in the United States, Europe, and beyond,” say DSTLRY Co-Founders Chip Mosher and David Steinberger in a joint statement.
