As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago, the special one-hour premiere of Nickelodeon’s animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is set for Saturday, Sept. 29, at 11 a.m. But two months is a long time to wait, so the cable network’s whipped up a brand-new trailer for the series. While the trailer we debuted last month focused on the Turtles’ origin story, the latest 45-second spot emphasizes their ninja qualities. The gang gets a chance to show off their weaponry, martial-arts skills, and mad ups while fighting some intriguing new villains, including menacingly red-eyed robots, psychedelic-looking little blobs, and a pants-wearing mutant monkey. Needless to say, ample screentime is also given to the franchise’s chief baddie Shredder, who looks meaner than ever. Watch below. READ FULL STORY

Fringe just gave Comic-Con fans a first look at its final season and the video is below (explosions!). Here’s a three-minute plus look at the ambitious fifth season of the Fox cult favorite. Also, check out EW.com’s live blog of the Fringe panel where John Noble reveals a feature film could be possible (well, creatively it’s possible I’m sure, but financially? … hmmm). Here you go… READ FULL STORY

It’s been five years since The Simpsons invaded movie theaters with the aptly titled The Simpsons Movie. Itching and scratching to see the Springfield clan return to the big screen? It’s happening shortly, in all senses of the word. Served as an animated appetizer to 20th Century Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift (opening July 13), The Longest Daycare is a four-and-a-half-minute 3-D short featuring a lot of Maggie Simpson and no dialogue.
The plot: Baby Maggie makes a return visit to the Ayn Rand School for Tots, which doesn’t start promisingly, as a machine scans her and determines that her future is “nothing special.”
For a preview of the action, watch the following trailer, which confirms the presence of a butterfly, lice detector, at least one other Simpsons family member, and Maggie’s arch rival, the unibrowed Baby Gerald. Granted, the tease is only about five seconds, but, hey, the movie’s not even five minutes.
EW gave you an exclusive first look at Nickelodeon’s new and improved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series last year. But now, as the series’ TBD fall launch nears, we’ve got another special treat for you: an exclusive look at the show’s official trailer.
Natch, the trailer quickly goes into the origin story of the Turtles. “They were created by accident,” the voice in the trailer tells us. “They were kept a secret. They were trained for battle. And now, when their city is under siege, the fate of humanity is in the hands of these four…turtles!” And it continues: “When evil threatens our universe, these four brothers are destined to save the world!” Then it takes a few moments to introduce each of the four green guys: Leonardo, “the leader”; Donatello, “the brains”; Raphael, “the muscle”; and Michelangelo, “the wild one.” However, there seems to be no sign of Splinter or April in this trailer, unfortunately.
EW recently spoke with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles executive producer Ciro Neili, who explained how this iteration of the characters fits into the Turtles universe. “I tried to boil it down and get to really what’s at the core of it,” Neili says, “which is this sense of brothers and camaraderie. Everything grew out of that. It’s like a band. You want a Beatles thing.”
The trailer — which you can find embedded below — will premiere on Nick.com tomorrow and Nickelodeon this Saturday, June 23, during the season 1, book 1 finale of Legend of Korra, which is an hour-long TV event featuring two back-to-back episodes.
In the first teaser for season 5 of Damages, which returns to DirecTV on July 11, we saw only Rose Byrne’s Ellen lying lifelessly on the street, presumable after a fall — or a push? — from a high-rise. The new clip at least sets the tone and introduces some new characters, including Ryan Phillippe and Jenna Elfman. “You may dislike my methods, but with me, you’ll stay relevant,” says Phillippe’s Channing McLaren, who runs a website that exposes Wall Street misconduct. He persuades Elfman’s Naomi Walling to leak some damaging information, but when it’s traced back to her, it becomes a war in and out of the courtroom, with Ellen and Patty on different sides. “You want to end this once and for all?” asks Close’s Patty. “Now’s your chance.”

'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' Season 5 trailer: Darth Maul, Death Watch battle over the galaxy -- EXCLUSIVE
Even legendary prequel naysayer Simon Pegg has made up with Star Wars. Why?
“The Clone Wars. Making Star Wars cool again, twenty minutes at a time,” he tweeted in February, shortly before voicing Empire Strikes Back bounty hunter Dengar in an episode. But you don’t have to take Pegg’s word for it. Instead, check out Darth Maul and the Death Watch battling for galactic supremacy in this dark, kinetic new trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ fifth season, set to debut on Cartoon Network this September. Cynical as you may be about the franchise, it’ll make you feel like your 12-year-old self clutching a Boba Fett lunchbox in no time. Or as the series’ supervising director Dave Filoni tells EW, “There’s a lot of payoff coming.” READ FULL STORY

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) went to an island. Oliver Queen stayed on that island. Who emerged instead? His lethal archer alter ego, Arrow. In a new, extended trailer for The CW’s forthcoming Arrow, the hero grapples with his changed inner self that’s unknown to those around him. He also kicks a lot of butt and shoots the bounce right out of some tennis balls. Watch Oliver become a “human weapon” below. READ FULL STORY
UPDATED: CBS trailers are now live!
Order! Order! EW.com’s Trailer Court is now in session, with the honorable James Hibberd and Lynette Rice judging broadcast’s new fall TV trailers. For some viewers, these trailers will be the biggest factor that decides if they watch a show next season. So here are our reviews, then we’ll turn the conversation over to you, the jury, in the comment section. Full bias disclosure to help you gauge our opinions: James is partial to serialized dramas, and isn’t easily impressed by sitcoms; Lynette likes classic multi-camera comedies and anything with former stars from The Shield.

From the sounds of it, the teaser for Damages‘ final season may have been scored by Skrillex on a particularly dark day. After a title card reads, “The beginning of the end,” the grind of electrosynth punctuates a series of increasingly urgent flashes that land on Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne). But what does it all mean? Watch the teaser below. READ FULL STORY
Even a high-speed collision with a mighty locomotive can’t stop Charlie Sheen, who’s set to return to TV this June on FX’s Anger Management. The second teaser for his new series pokes fun at Sheen’s storied reputation by showing Sheen walking away from a literal train wreck unscathed — then saying, with a smirk, “Come on. Everyone deserves a 24th chance.”
This is the second Anger Management teaser that neglects to include footage from the show itself. FX’s decision to advertise its sitcom this way is a little curious, considering how well Anger tested in a preview screening. Then again, Sheen’s fans likely don’t care about the details of his next series — they just want to see Charlie being Charlie. And on that end, FX’s teasers deliver. Judge for yourself by watching the clip below.
Want to watch True Blood‘s June 10 premiere without having any idea about what will happen in season 5? If so, stay away from the spoilery trailer HBO released yesterday — which reveals that the clandestine Vampire Authority is none too pleased with what’s going on in Bon Temps. The Authority’s leader, new character Roman — played by Law & Order: SVU‘s Christopher Meloni — intends to take some drastic action to restore order. And if that wasn’t bad enough, season 3 antagonist Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) definitely isn’t encased in concrete anymore.
Check out the bloody, fantastical trailer — which also includes a sexy Eric and Pam flashback, as well as brief peeks at characters like Lafayette, Alcide, and, of course, Sookie — below the jump.
