Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009) International Trailer
An International Trailer for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
Flint Lockwood (voiced by Bill Hader) is a young inventor who has trouble seeing eye to eye with his technophobic fisherman father Tim Lockwood (voiced by James Caan), because he invents many things that end up faulty, unwanted, and/or chaotic (including the "Spray-On Shoes" - which imprisoned his feet into impervious plastic shoes forever, and "rat-birds" which escaped and breed at an alarming rate). His mother (voiced by Lauren Graham) always believed he would become great someday until she passed away before Flint graduated school. Flint continues to create questionable inventions such as a remote-control television that runs away and a flying car with no wings. He lives on a small, unknown (because it is "right underneath the A in "Atlantic") island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Eventually, the market for sardines dries up, and the only food everyone can afford are sardines. Hoping to solve this problem, Flint invents a machine that converts water into food, but it fails due to the low amount of electricity. The next day during a rally for the opening of a theme park named "Sardine Land" held by Mayor Shelbourne (voiced by Bruce Campbell) and the sardine mascot Brent (a celebrity who has represented the town's sardine products ever since he was a baby and voiced by Andy Samberg), Flint uses electricity from the nearby power station to test the machine again. Meanwhile, a weather intern from New York City, Sam Sparks (voiced by Anna Faris), has her big break when she is sent to Swallow Falls to report the events. Flint's machine destroys a segment of the theme park and flies into the sky. Soon after, a large set of purple clouds covers the town and rains cheeseburgers.
Flint invents a communication device that allows people to order what they want to eat, like ice cream for Officer Earl's (voiced by Mr. T) son Cal's (voiced by Bobb'e J. Thompson) birthday and a huge amount of food for the Mayor to gorge on. The city's name is changed to Chewandswallow, and the mayor tries to generate tourism by inviting cruise ships to the island to eat. The Mayor invites Flint to cut the ribbon for the grand re-opening of the town, but before that can happen Flint discovers that the food is getting bigger. Flint decides to turn the machine off, but the Mayor (now morbidly obese) persuades Flint to leave it on.
Just before the tourists arrive, Sam realizes that the town and the world are in danger, but Flint refuses to turn off the machine. A spaghetti twister strikes the town, and Flint runs to the lab to turn off the machine, but the Mayor destroys the communication device. A storm threatens to destroy the Earth with giant raining food. Flint, along his his pet monkey Steve, Sam, her cameraman Manny (voiced by Benjamin Bratt), and the sardine mascot Brent, give chase after the machine, which has transformed into a giant meatball. They destroy the machine, and Flint and Sam kiss.
