Cloudy 2 Trailer Is Online
Meat... er... meet the food-imals

27 February 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Yahoo

Cloudy With A chance Of Meatballs was a left-field ‘toon surprise back in 2009, a truly entertaining and surreal dose of insanity that hit more than it missed. So naturally the sequel is en route and the first trailer has arrived courtesy of Yahoo. Take a gander below, why don’t you? 

 

 

 

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. Cue a parody of Jurassic Park with lots of food gags. Check out the latest poster in the gallery.

Though original writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller aren’t back for this one, the film is in the hands of director Cody Cameron who worked on the original, while the script’s by Kris Pearn (head of story on the first film) with additional material from Horrible Bosses writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan M Goldstein.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 is out on October 25.

LEAK
That leak in the boat joke cracked me up! LOVED the first movie, so I'm extremely excited about this one :-) More

An under-rated gem
The first is a great little bit of silly entertainment, easily beating many of Dreamworks efforts. The reliance on well executed psychical humour is what marked the first one out for me, looking forward to this. More
