What’s this? A movie about racing featuring the same pulse-pounding synth soundtrack as Drive, complete with a voiceover from a sultry leading man talking about the dangers of living life in the fast lane? Is this the animated sequel to Drive that we never knew we wanted?
Nope. This is a movie about a snail.
The first trailer for Turbo, the new Dreamworks Animation project from the creative teams behind Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, doesn’t exactly tell us what the film is about. But it is fun, nonetheless. The movie, as it turns out, is about a garden snail who dreams of becoming the fastest snail in the world, only to find himself the victim of a freak accident that might just grant him his wish. Ryan Reynolds leads a voice cast that includes the likes of Paul Giamatti, Luis Guzman, Richard Jenkins, Samuel L. Jackson, Maya Rudolph and Snoop Dogg. In the end, it’s a movie about a snail. Pretty harmless.
