Though it was released way back in 2009, I haven’t forgotten about Sony’s animated adaptation of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. It was a cute, genuinely funny film with a neat premise and some solid writing. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, it was one of the more enjoyable animated films that I had seen in sometime and luckily, the studio gave the go ahead for Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2, which sees its first trailer arrive online today.
This time around, Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn are directing with a script penned by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses). Full of all the fun food related gags you can imagine, the trailer gives us a good look at what looks to be a truly worthy follow-up. There’s some very imaginative stuff in here and it looks like a real crowd pleaser. If you were a fan of the first film, then you should find much to like in its colourful sequel. Already I found myself laughing out loud at some of the clever food puns that they’ve come up with.
Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 stars Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Will Forte, Andy Samberg, and Kristen Schaal and opens on September 27th, 2013. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
After the disastrous food storm in the first film, Flint and his friends are forced to leave the town. Flint accepts the invitation from his idol Chester V to join The Live Corp Company, which has been tasked to clean the island, and where the best inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind. When Flint discovers that his machine still operates and now creates mutant food beasts like living pickles, hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees and apple pie-thons, he and his friends must return to save the world.
