Ryan Reynolds is starring in a brand new animated movie called "Turbo." He plays the film's title character, a snail who dreams of racing in the Indianapolis 500. Following a freak accident, because that's how these things happen, Turbo's DNA gets fused with nitrous oxide, making him as fast as any race car.
Before Sunday's Indy 500, a new featurette from the movie has been released featuring several members of the cast, along with 2012 Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti. "You see the passion everybody on the 'Turbo' project has for making it the best possible racing film," Dario says, "There's no limits. Anything is possible." Reynolds says the underdog nature of the story is what drew him to the film.
“Turbo” is the story of a snail who dreams of being the greatest racer in the world, just like his hero, 5-time Indianapolis 500 champ, Guy Gagné. Turbo’s obsession with speed and all things fast has made him an outsider in the slow snail community, and a constant embarrassment to his cautious older brother, Chet.
Turbo desperately wishes he could escape the slow-paced life he’s living. He gets that chance after a freak accident when he suddenly finds himself vested with the power of incredible speed. Turbo embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the impossible: racing against the best that IndyCar has to offer. Turbo is the ultimate underdog who achieves the impossible by refusing to let his limitations limit his dreams. »

Counting down to the Indy 500 this weekend, Turbo has this super-fueled featurette leading up to race day.
Racing into theaters from Twentieth Century Fox on July 17, Turbo is a high-velocity 3D comedy about a snail who dares to dream big – and fast. After a freak accident infuses him with the power of super-speed, Turbo kicks into overdrive and embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the seemingly impossible: competing in the world’s fastest race. With the help of his tricked-out streetwise snail crew, this ultimate underdog puts his heart and shell on the line to prove that no dream is too big, and no dreamer too small.
Ryan Reynolds leads an all-star cast including Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzman, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Dogg and Samuel L. Jackson in the story of an ordinary garden snail with dreams of racing greatness. »

No, it's not Mickey Rourke as Wiplash a.k.a. Ivan Vanko in Iron Man 2, but this snail's ready to whip some ass in the upcoming Fox animation helmed by David Soren. Still, Samuel L. Jackson's voice paired with such a colorful design, could be mismatched. I would think something more hardcore would work better for Jackson. Turbo comes from the makers of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, and features the voice talents of Ryan Reynolds as well as Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith and Snoop Dogg. »

"Let's roll!" started with S.W.A.T. Steve Forrest, best known for starring in the 1970s action drama, died May 18 at his home in Thousand Oaks, Calif., according to his family. He was 87. A spinoff of the Aaron Spelling-produced The Rookies, S.W.A.T. ran on ABC for two seasons.

Dan "Hondo" Harrelson, whose signature line, "Let's roll," has been adopted as a catchphrase many times over. Fittingly, his final acting gig was a cameo as a Swat truck driver in the 2003 film S.W.A.T., starring Samuel L. Jackson as Hondo. After serving in the Army during »

Turbo comes to theaters July 19th, 2013 and stars Snoop Lion, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Samuel L. Jackson, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michael Peña, Ryan Reynolds. The film is directed by David Soren. »
While Samuel L. Jackson’s Director Fury played a minor part in Marvel’s solo outings, his role really became integral in Joss Whedon’s epic superhero ensemble, The Avengers. However, his appearance is again a whole lot more prominent in the currently-shooting Captain America sequel, The Winter Soldier, which interestingly being described by the studio as a ‘political thriller’ in the Tom Clancy mould.
It’s said the latest adventure will merge two comic-book arcs, one that sees Steve Rogers’ (Chris Evans) former friend, Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) resurrected as deadly assassin of the sub-title by a villain known as Crossbones (being played by Frank Grillo), as well as elements of ‘Nick Fury: Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D‘, in which the top secret government operative is forced to go on the run, soon seeking help and teaming up with the patriotic super soldier.
