Turbo is certainly based on a slightly odd idea – a snail competes in the Indy 500 car race – but DreamWorks Animation’s movie does look like it might be fun.
The movie follows Theo, a snail who dreams of being a racer. A strange accident grants him his wish, allowing him to go at super-speeds. He then teams up with a group of fellow speed-obsessed snails and a taco truck owner to try to compete in the Indy 500.
The film has a great voice cast, including Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Giamatti, Ken Jeong (as a cantankerous woman), Michael Pena, Luis Guzman, Richard Jenkins, Bill Hader, Michelle Rodriguez, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Lion and Maya Rudolph.
It’s out in the US on July 17th and will reach the UK in October. [Read more…]
