What the hell is “Turbo”? Glad you asked. It’s a CG animated movie from Dreamworks, starring Ryan Reynolds as a snail who dreams of racing in the Indy 500. See, because he’s a snail, and he’s slow, so naturally the movie is about him trying to race and win the Indy 500. I mean, that just sells itself, doesn’t it? Anyways, first teaser trailer for the film below.
By the way, don’t snails leave a trail of slime behind them? I don’t see any CG slime in the trailer…
From the makers of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, Turbo is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an underdog snail who kicks into overdrive when he miraculously attains the power of super-speed. But after making fast friends with a crew of streetwise, tricked-out es-car-goes, Turbo learns that no one succeeds on their own. So he puts his heart and shell on the line to help his pals achieve their dreams, before Turbo-charging his own impossible dream: winning the Indy 500.
Also featuring the voices of Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Dogg, Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by David Soren directs.
