Ryan Reynolds has been at the center of some notable or fan-favorite blockbusters over the years, from his most comedic work on The Proposal and Pokemon: Detective Pikachu to his action-packed fare on Free Guy and Deadpool. This weekend, one of Reynolds’s hidden but still loved movies will no longer be available on Netflix. Turbo, the 2013 DreamWorks film with a star-studded voice cast led by Reynolds, will leave the popular streaming service on Saturday, September 11.
In Turbo, after a freak accident gives an ordinary snail the power of superspeed, Turbo (voiced by Reynolds) accelerates his dreams and, with the help of his cunning crew of snails, embarks on an extraordinary journey. to achieve what it seems. impossible: win the Indianapolis 500.
The film also features the voices of Paul Giamatti as Chet, Samuel L. Jackson as Whiplash, Michael Peña as Tito Lopez, Luis Guzmán as Angelo Lopez, Bill Hader as Guy Gagné, Snoop Dogg as Smoove Move, Maya Rudolph as Burn, Ben. . Schwartz as Skidmark, Mike Bell as White Shadow, Ken Jeong as Kim-Ly, and Michelle Rodriguez as Paz, an auto mechanic at Starlight Plaza. The film was directed and co-written by David Soren, and was based on an original idea he created while at DreamWorks. The series briefly got its own Netflix spinoff series Turbo Fast.
Turbo leaves Netflix when one of Reynolds’ most infamous movies, 2011’s Green Lantern, recently dominated streamer viewership charts. Meanwhile, his most recent film Free Guy surpassed box office expectations when it opened in August, and there is already speculation about his next outing as Deadpool, who will now be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Deadpool, to me, is kind of an anxiety-inducing tightrope walk,” Reynolds told ComicBook.com earlier this year. “I always think that when I have a perfect Deadpool, I talk about the Deadpool 1 and 2 experience, that I need to do it 30 to 40% better than it already is. Even if I’m in the moment I’m like, ‘This is perfect, this moment!’ Then I stop and say, ‘Okay, this has to be 30% better than it already is.’ It’s stressful to get it right, or at least as far as I’m concerned. So, no, I never really thought about it, but I loved the idea of playing Deadpool and Korg in some of the marketing materials, given the fact that Taika [Waititi] and i’m in the movie. So, I have to scratch my itch, inevitably anyway. “
