Trailer: Turbo


The first full trailer for Turbo, the story of the Ryan Reynolds voiced snail that dreams of racing in the Indy 500 and suddenly gets mutated by a run in with nitrous oxide, is suitably wacky and looks to run its “everything is so slooooow” (from the teaser) joke into the ground. Turbo seems like it would have worked better as a short film with the premise getting thin even in the trailer.

Regardless of how I feel, Turbo might be cute enough to work. It’s got an interesting voice cast (with the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Snoop Lionnity Lion, Michelle Rodriguez, and Michael Pena), and the snail trail effect reminds me of Tron. I guess I’ll save judgment for July 19th when Turbo hits theaters.
