‘Turbo’ Trailer Redefines Snail’s Pace

Turbo Movie

In DreamWorks‘ Turbo a snail (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) dreams of racing in the Indy 500. Like all snails. Check with National Geographic. They’ll confirm.

It’s a simple premise that could work really well for the studio’s sense of humor, and the new trailer is nothing but promise. Great design, a few kooky side characters, the usual fish-out-of-water following his ridiculous dreams set up. It’s a superhero movie where the accident happens to a gastropod.

Check it out the trailer for yourself:

This is David Soren‘s first outing as a feature director, and while his involvement as a writer for Shark Tale is a little ray of doubt, that film was mostly taken down by an over-dependence on celebrity (right down to the character design) and bad pop culture references. It’s a nice sign that the snail doesn’t look like Ryan Reynolds here, but the trailer itself is a lot of fun too. Fingers crossed.

Turbo hits theaters July 19th.
