School afternoon staple!), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutant Mayhem hails from director Jeff Rowe and producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg & James Weaver (Rogen also provides the voice of a character). It features an amazingly superlative cast, including a host of very diverse performers — heck, who thought we’d see a movie with John Cena, Jackie Chan, Paul Rudd, Post Malone, and Ice Cube all on the credits block!?
After years of being sheltered from the human world, the Turtle brothers set out to win the hearts of New Yorkers and be accepted as normal teenagers through heroic acts. Their new friend April O’Neil helps them take on a mysterious crime syndicate, but they soon get in over their heads when an army of mutants is unleashed upon them.
