A nitrous-injected snail that enters the Indy 500? Sure, why not, it can only be better than that drivel Sly Stallone produced about single-seater racing in the US.

Turbo, the snail in question, has a bit of a mishap that endows him with super-speed and eventually lands him a spot in one of the world's most famous races.

The lead character is voiced by Ryan Reynolds and he is joined by other famous faces (voices?) Samuel L Jackson (I have had it with these motherf*&#in' snails on this motherf*&#in' plane - sorry, wrong movie) and Snoop Snail (Dogg/Lion?).

Turbo will hit local big screens on September 6.
