You have to give it to DreamWorks Animation with their latest, Turbo, whose trailer has just premiered. Who would have thought of the idea of a snail, of all the plodding creatures in the natural world, who dreams of Indy 500 glory (teased in this Turbo Indy 500 featurette)?
Ryan Reynolds stars as the garden being who wants nothing more than to not just move faster than his kind can, but to reach speeds that rival the speediest of vehicles flying around the iconic track in Indianapolis.
The latest trailer gives us more of the gloriously drawn animation than the Turbo teaser trailer for the film that arrives July 17 and also features the vocal talents of Samuel L. Jackson, Snoop Lion, Ken Jeong (The Hangover movies), Maya Rudolph and Paul Giamatti.
Turbo proves to be a prophetic name for Reynolds’ snail as when he gets sucked into a vehicle’s NOS contraption, he develops supersonic abilities for going fast and his need for speed is realized.
