Determined to prove that it has kept the original film’s wackiness and flair for food-based humour intact, the new trailer for Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 goes all-out with produce puns and plenty of madcap behaviour from its main cast. Have a look below.
Picking up the story of dedicated scientist Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader), the man who created a device to turn water into food, we discover that the inhabitants of Swallow Falls have relocated to allow the authorities to clean up the mess left by Flint’s machine going haywire and raining giant edible products down on the place.
Flint himself has been working at the Live Corp Company for idol Chester V (Will Forte), but learns that the food machine wasn’t completely destroyed and ended up on an island where it has been creating weird food/creature hybrids.
So Flint and his friends, including Sam (Anna Faris), Brent (Andy Samberg), Barb (Kristen Schaal), Steve (Neil Patrick Harris) and Earl (Terry Crews, taking over for Mr. T) must journey there to fix things.
Steve definitely gets one of the standout moments here, but the whole thing gives us confidence that new directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn are carrying the torch from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, while also using it to toast marshmallows. Mmm… Marshmallows.
Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 is out here on October 25.
