‘Turbo': Ryan Reynolds Tackles the Classic Snail Movie Genre — TRAILER

Turbo

It’s funny to think back on the early days of Ryan Reynolds, when he was just the guy who’d pop up for brief parts in movies like Dick and Harold & Kumar, and the odd episode of Scrubs. Now, Reynolds is a bona fide headliner, starring in wacky comedies, romantic films, and superhero movies alike. But in his latest endeavor, Reynolds will test the waters of one genre that really defines an actor as a captain of the industry: snail movies. Below is the first trailer for the animated movie Turbo, which tacks Reynolds’ signature fast-talking, smarmy dialogue to a small, sweet-natured mollusk who dreams of being a high-speed racer.

In the classic underdog framework that does wonders with children’s movies, we see the titular Turbo embrace his passions in the new trailer below. He will not be weighed down by his bulky shell, sticky stomach, and lack of limbs. Turbo lives to go fast. And he’ll stop at nothing to make this dream come true, no matter how long it takes him, which will undoubtedly be quite a while. The dude takes 20 minutes just to crawl the length of a ruler.

Check out the trailer below. Turbo hits theaters in the summer of 2013.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
