Hello, your Geekiness! *bows & smirks* Summer cartoons keep on truckin' & next up we have Turbo! I will also be doing a dinner Meetup beforehand at J T Mchart's Pizzeria, for those who can make it to both. ***This is the day after opening day, so it's best to get tickets online or at least 1 hour before the movie starts.*** I highly recommend purchasing them online at home or on your mobile device the night before. (For those of you going to J T Mchart's as well, you can get yours before you head to the 1st Meetup.) This will be the 2D showing at 8:25pm.
Turbo Official Site
Synopsis: Theo, a.k.a Turbo is a garden snail who dreams of being the greatest racer in the world, just like his hero, 5-time Indianapolis 500 champ, Guy Gagne. His obsession with speed and all things fast has made him an oddity and an outsider in the slow and cautious snail community, and a constant embarrassment to his careful older brother, Chet. Turbo desperately wishes he could escape the slow-paced life he's living.
As luck would have it, Turbo gets that chance one fateful day after a freak accident when he gets sucked into the supercharger of a drag racer, fusing his DNA with nitrous oxide on a Street Race when he suddenly finds himself vested with the power of incredible speed, accuracy, as well as some of the characteristics of a car.
Turbo and Chet are then captured by Tito, a "Dos Bros" taco truck driver and is brought to race with other snails also with Angelo. Impressed by snail leader Whiplash, he is accompanied by the rest of his crew Smoove Move, Burn, Skidmark, and White Shadow.
Turbo embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the impossible: racing against the best that IndyCar has to offer, but in the Indianapolis 500 there is no way a snail can race in a competition that is meant for cars. He is the ultimate underdog who achieves the impossible by refusing to let his limitations get in the way of his dreams.
(The film will be followed by a television series, titled Turbo: F.A.S.T. (Fast Action Stunt Team), which will air on Netflix in December 2013.)
