Check out two new animated films heading our way from DreamWorks Animation: ‘Turbo‘ and ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman‘.
When we were in L.A. in February, we were given a sneak peek of clips from these two upcoming family flicks and wanted to share a few bits about them with you. You’ll want to put both of these on your movie radar!
‘Turbo’ is coming our way this July (July 19th to be exact – mark your calendar now!). ‘Turbo’ features an all-star voice cast: Ryan Reynolds (The Croods), Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Dogg and Samuel L. Jackson.
“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.”
We’re definitely heading to see ‘Turbo’ this summer. Just from the short clip I viewed, I was hooked. It was funny and, just like The Croods, it was visually gorgeous. I don’t know a lot about the technicalities of it, but the lighting and colour and animations are captivating. What can I say? I love shiny pretty things, especially when they come with a sense of humour and a great story!
We only got a super quick glimpse of ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’, so we can’t give away much yet, but with a cast that features the voices of ‘Modern Family’ star Ty Burrell and ‘The Neighbours star Max Charles, it’s sure to be filled with plenty of comedy. This animated flick doesn’t hit the big screen until March 7, 2014.
