I'm a good bowler, and a good man.

Turbo, DreamWorks Animation's big summer bet, is THIS close to release. In fact, it's super-speedy snail legs are working overtime - it's just two weeks until its July 17th release date! And now they've released a new trailer to sate those who can't wait any longer. Check it out below:

Turbo is the story of a snail who dreams of being like his hero, 5-time Indianapolis 500 champion Guy Gagné, in stark comparison to the slow pace of the snail community. When he is hurt in a freak accident, he gains the power of astonishing speed, and the underdog manages to do the impossible.

This won't have any trouble at the box office, I doubt. Kids will lap up the heartwarming underdog storyline, the fast cars and even faster quips. And as is customary with a DreamWorks release, there's an all-star cast providing the voices - , , , among others. Yet, with regards to whether this can manage to entertain the parents too (a'la most of the Pixar repertoire), I'm not quite sure. Turbo looks competent, sure, but it still looks like a pretty standard 'underdog triumphs against the odds' flick.

What does everyone think? Does Turbo look like a hit? Get in touch below!
