Watch: International Trailer for 'Turbo' Highlights Slow Snail World
In what is basically a superhero movie repurposed for a mollusk, DreamWorks Animation has Turbo coming this summer. Ryan Reynolds voices the snail who finds himself with the gift of super speed after a chance encounter with some nitrous fuel liquid. In this new international trailer, we get an entertaining glimpse into the mundane lives of the slow-moving snails, and also get introduced into some of the other snails in the film voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Michelle Rodriguez and more. This looks like it could be the second hit for DWA after The Croods earlier this year. Watch now!
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 smack in the middle of this exciting summer. Looking like fun?

Turbo looks like the snail from The NeverEnding Story.

Actually, I think that looks fucking stupid. I think I've finally found a premise I can't buy into in the slightest.

Ditto, the only reason I would see this is for Snoop Lion.

Wow this looked a lot better in the first short preview. Now it looks like a typical Dreamworks hackneyed plot full of simplistic twists and turns and a thimbles worth of imagination. Not impressed at all. I don't know what it is about Dreamworks compared to the other animation studios but it seems like Dreamworks is always shooting for the middle in the storytelling department, and then they make up for it by filling the film with unnecessary humor, most of it just mediocre enough to chuckle at. You leave the theater feeling entertained because of the humor but in comparison to a Pixar film, or even some of Sony's animated films....you never leave feeling like you saw anything other than a shiny novelty "kids" film (and I put 'kids' in quotes because out of the animation departments Dreamworks makes the least kid friendly/appropriate movies of the bunch) that you're kids are going to beg for on DVD but then forget about a month later.
