Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs was a surprise success in 2009, grossing over $250 million and ensuring that Sony was keen to get a sequel into production. That follow-up is due to his UK cinemas this October, and now we’ve got our first look at the movie, via USA Today.
The movie follows on directly from the events in the first movie, where eccentric inventor Flint Locklood caused chaos with a machine that turns water into food. Here’s the synopsis for Cloudy 2: : ‘In the wake of the disastrous food storm at the end of the first movie, Flint Lockwood and friends are forced to leave their town of Swallow Falls. But when it is discovered that sentient food beasts have overrun the island, they are asked to return to save the world…again.’
Bill Hader, who voices Lockwood, comments, “It’s [the machine] created these living food creatures that have basically taken over Flint’s home, the island where he lives. That island is kind of like Jurassic Park.”
You can get you first look at those food-imals above, and then head over to USA Today if you want close-ups of the creatures in the image.
