The studios are starting to announce all their Comic-Con 2013 panels (we should have a full schedule by the end of the week), and the latest is Columbia Pictures, who will be bringing 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2,' and their 'Robocop' remake to San Diego.
Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers
After leaving Swallow Falls in the first movie, Flint and the gang must return after learning it's overrun by sentient food beasties.
The first 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' trailer has finally hit after the release of a snapshot or two, and a nail-biting countdown on Facebook. So what happened to the 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' gang after Flint Lockwood's invention completely smothered his home island in giant-sized food? Where did they go? What happened with all that food? These questions will finally be answered with 'Cloudy 2,' dubbed 'Revenge of the Leftovers.'
We're pretty pumped for 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2,' partially due to the first poster that has recently hit. While the first film was a family friendly animated adventure, it was also a thoughtful exploration of scientific responsibility and a joke machine that crams more gags into every minute than most films have in their entire running time. So to continue our excitement into the sequel, check out this brand-new 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' poster look.
'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2,' the highly-anticipated sequel to 2009's surprise hit doesn't come out until the fall, but thankfully we have a first look at the animated pic right now: a lovely new image that shows off the movie's bevy of "food-imals," which are just what they sound like! Shrimpanzees anyone?
Don't let the fact that it's a family friendly animated movie based on a picture book fool you: 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' is one of the funniest movies in recent years, containing more jokes in a single given minute that most movies can fit in their entire running time. It's 'Airplane!' level of joke saturation: if one joke doesn't work for you, just wait another ten seconds because here comes sixteen gags that will. We don't know if the upcoming sequel, 'Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers' will be as funny, but it just cast Kristen Schaal, which is a good start.
