‘Turbo’ Movie Trailer – Whats That Song?


The forthcoming film ‘Turbo‘ is a highly stylized, 3-D action animated comedy from the same crew that gave the world ‘Madagascar’ and ‘Kung Fu Panda.’ The trailer features Survivor‘s 1982 hit ‘Eye of the Tiger.’

The story revolves around an underdog snail who “miraculously attains the power of super-speed.” ‘Eye Of The Tiger,’ the tried and true anthem for overcoming obstacles and regaining your edge, can be heard cranking it up as ‘Turbo’ first discovers his new powers.

Directed by David Soren, the story unfolds that Turbo has a dream to win the Indy 500. He makes friends with a crew of streetwise, tricked-out “es-car-goes,” and assembles a crew to help him attain his dream, as he learns that Obamian proverb: “no one succeeds on their own.”

The anthemic ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ surges along as a perfect soundtrack. Since first used in the 1982 film ‘Rocky III,’ the song has been loved, hated, parodied and employed time and again in everything from movies to sports to politics. The song was a No. 1 hit across the world, including the US, selling over two million copies during its first run and millions more in downloads.

The voice over cast includes such luminaries as Paul Giamatti, Snoop Dogg, Samuel L. Jackson and Maya Rudolph. Other music used in the ad includes ‘Tick Of The Clock’ by Chromatics and ‘The Distance’ by Cake, but it’s the Survivor track that most links up with the story line of lil’ Turbo as he “puts his heart and shell on the line.” The movie opens nationwide July 19.
