Turbo Movie

    This week, my boys and I had the pleasure of attending the advanced screening of the Turbo Movie with some of my fellow bloggers.  Before the screening, bloggers were invited to join 20th Century Fox and DreamWorks Animation at the Turbo 500 Event at the Today Show!

    Crews worked around the clock to turn the Today plaza into an Indy 500-style racetrack.  Matt, Savannah, Natalie and Willie were joined by Ryan Reynolds, star of the upcoming animated film “Turbo,” to compete in a snail race.  Each competitor played skee ball in order to move their snails up the side of Studio 1A and hopefully win the race!

    After the races, bloggers had the opportunity to interview Ryan Reynolds personally and to learn more about him and his role as the voice of Turbo in the Turbo Movie.  He stated that this character appealed to him because he persevered in order to accomplish his goals, despite the fact that everyone was telling him otherwise.  Ryan also shared that he is a firm believer in the saying that “Slow and steady wins the race.”  He thinks this is a great message to send to all kids, especially his many nieces and nephews.

    Turbo movie is a 3D comedy about a snail who is considered the underdog in a race, because snails are considered slow, when he suddenly attains the power of super-speed.  After making friends with a crew of streetwise snails, he learns that sometimes you need a few friends to help you make your dreams come true.  He ends up putting everything on the line in order to accomplish his own nearly impossible dream of winning the Indy 500!  The film stars the voices of of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Ken Jeong, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Snoop Dogg, and Samuel L. Jackson.
