I don’t like snails, but I’m going to put my aversion to the slimy creatures aside just for Turbo. DreamWorks Animation’s snail-centric animated film is like Fast and Furious, albeit a F&F with shells in place of cars and slugs in place of hunky drivers. Coming to theaters on July 19, 2013, Turbo features the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Ken Jeong, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Snoop Dogg, and Samuel L. Jackson.
From the makers of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, Turbo is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an underdog snail who kicks into overdrive when he miraculously attains the power of super-speed. But after making fast friends with a crew of streetwise, tricked-out es-car-goes, Turbo learns that no one succeeds on their own. So he puts his heart and shell on the line to help his pals achieve their dreams, before Turbo-charging his own impossible dream: winning the Indy 500.
