Turbo Trailer

"Gentlemen, start your engines." DreamWorks Animation has unveiled the new trailer for their upcoming movie Turbo, about a little snail who aspires to be the "fastest snail in the world." Ryan Reynolds voices ambitious racer #5, Turbo, who we've seen before in a few first look reveals earlier this year. The voice cast also includes Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph and Snoop Dogg (but none of them are heard in this footage). While there's not much to this teaser, I like the music. Nice riff on Drive and "Going the Distance", but I wanted to see more.

Here's the first teaser trailer for DreamWorks Animation's Turbo, in high def from Apple:

Turbo is directed by David Soren (who went from storyboard artist, to head of story, to directing the Merry Madagascar Christmas special) working from a script he co-wrote with Shrek Forever After scribe Darren Lemke. Ryan Reyolds will voice the titular character in the story of an ordinary garden snail with an impossible dream: to become the fastest snail in the world. When a freak accident gives him extraordinary speed, Turbo sets out to try to make this dream come true. 20th Century Fox will be releasing DreamWorks Animation's Turbo starting on July 19th, 2013 smack in the middle of next summer. First impression?

      Not sure if you were referring to the first track that plays, but actually that is 'Tick of the Clock' by the Chromatics. It's also in the movie Drive.

        What "notalent" says is correct. It's Tick Of The Clock.
  • Fun fact: Wally Pfister is a visual consultant on this.
