ABOUT TURBO: Turbo, which opens its regular run on July 17, is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an underdog snail who kicks into overdrive when he miraculously attains the power of super-speed.  But after making fast friends with a crew of streetwise tricked-out es-car-goes, Turbo learns that no one succeeds on their own.  So he puts his heart and shell on the line to help his pals achieve their dreams before Turbo-charging his own impossible dream: winning the Indy 500.  Starring the voice talents of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Snoop Dogg, Maya Rudolph and Samuel L. Jackson
