‘Turbo’ International Trailer: The Origin of a Supersonic Snail

Published 2 years ago by

In Dreamworks’ upcoming animated feature Turbo, the titular underappreciated snail dreams of racing at the breakneck speeds of the Indianapolis 500. Mocked by friends and foes alike, Turbo despairs at ever being a racer.

When he’s involved in a freak accident involving a passing truck, a drag race, and a heavy dose of nitro, Turbo finds himself finally able to achieve his goal of burning up the track.

Turbo sports an all-star cast that includes Ryan Reynolds (The Croods), Paul Giamatti (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers), Ken Jeong (The Hangover Part III), and Bill Hader (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2). The film is directed by David Soren (Madagascar 2: Escape to Africa).

This internationally-released extended trailer for Turbo certainly gives us more of an idea of the overall plot of the movie than the previously released teaser. Part animated fable and part superhero origin story, Turbo looks like it will be having quite a bit of fun with the concept of a snail gaining abilities akin to The Flash.

That said, much of what we see here is rather familiar. The opening scenes of this preview uncontrollably evoke other films of its sort – most notably the stereotypically-disgusting-animal-has-an-unusual-dream movie Ratatouille. One can only hope that these sections of the film are quickly shuffled out of the way so that Turbo can build to the real joys of a snail that can literally leave a trail of fire in his wake.


Turbo will zoom into theaters on July 19th, 2013.

  1. If there is a snail named Ozone in it I will be all over this movie.

  7. If there is a snail named Ozone I will be all over this movie.

  8. Uhh… Not original on story material.

    This movie trailer didn’t at all look better than the teaser. The film looks like it will stretch too much that “the snail can race!”. Kids might think “Wow!”, but this will be painful for me to watch.

    PS: I think Ryan Renalds needs to dig deeper in his voice acting capability. I know Dreamworks asked him to be in the movie, But COME ON!

  9. And yet we can’t get a Flash movie.

  10. nice info and yup movie seems to be good ..
