'Turbo' Teaser: Ryan Reynolds Now a Cartoon Snail

In DreamWorks Animation's Turbo, Ryan Reynolds provides the voice of a snail with ambitions on winning the Indy 500. Normally this would not be possible, as snails are a slow species, and cannot drive a car, and the Indy 500 is for humans. Nonetheless, Ryan Reynolds Snail's dream moves one step closer to reality when he one day--according to the official summary--"miraculously attains the power of super-speed" for reasons that are not explained nor likely as Faustian as would make for the more powerful tale of molluskan hubris. "Celerity at a cost, Ryan Reynolds Snail, as each lap draws your soul quicker to its fiery eternity in Snail Hell," Snoop Dogg could say, as he is also a voice in this. Sadly, no hints of any of that in this first teaser. I think he's just going to attach a rocket to his shell.
