Inventor Flint Lockwood, the star of Sony Pictures Animation's highly anticipated animated feature Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, has a whole new way for moviegoers to meet his delicious co-stars before the movie hits theaters everywhere on September 27. Beginning tomorrow, the fun "foodimal" stars of the film will be available - in healthy and tasty lunch-sized portions - in the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 foodimobile tour!
Beginning tomorrow in Salt Lake City and Miami, two film-themed food trucks will be visiting family-friendly destinations across the country, bringing tacodiles, hippotatomuses, fruit cockatiels, subwhales, watermelophants, Barry (he's a strawberry), pickles, carrots, and celery to hungry moviegoers. The food, which is provided by Ortega Mexican Foods and promotional partners on the film, including Subway restaurants, California Giant Berry Farms, Cal-Organic Farms, Duda Farm Fresh Foods, Grimmway Farms, and the National Watermelon Promotion Board, will be served in lunch boxes featuring foodimal characters, and visitors will also walk away with recipe cards explaining how to make foodimals at home. The tour goes through the opening weekend of the film.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 picks up where Sony Pictures Animation's mouth-watering comedy left off. Inventor Flint Lockwood thought he saved the world when he destroyed his most infamous invention -- a machine that turned water into food causing cheeseburger rain and spaghetti tornadoes. But Flint soon learns that his invention survived and is now creating food-animals - "foodimals!" Flint and his friends embark on a dangerously delicious mission to battle hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, hippotatomuses, cheespiders and other foodimals to save the world - again! Directed by Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn. Screenplay by Erica Rivinoja and John Francis Daley & Jonathan M. Goldstein. Story by Phil Lord & Chris Miller and Erica Rivinoja. Inspired by the book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs written by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett. Produced by Pam Marsden and Kirk Bodyfelt.
