Samuel L. Jackson is playing Nick Fury in the Avengers movies. But in Turbo, the upcoming animated movie from Dreamworks Animation, he gets to play Whiplash! Well, a snail called Whiplash, not the villain played by Mickey Rourke in Iron Man 2… Here’s a character poster featuring Whiplash:
And a new featurette that wants you to believe that the film is more a racing movie than a movie about snails:
Turbo – Indy 500
“A freak accident might just help an everyday garden snail achieve his biggest dream: winning the Indy 500.”
The snail Turbo is voiced by Ryan Reynolds.
In theaters: July 17, 2013.
