Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 lands in theaters this Friday, and cast members of the animated comedy including Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Neil Patrick Harris and Terry Crews descended upon the red carpet in Hollywood amid the "foodimals" to premiere their hilarious sequel. Watch the video!
Picking up about 60 seconds after the first film left off, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 finds Flint Lockwood's (voiced by Hader) genius finally being recognized as he's invited by his childhood idol Chester V (played by Will Forte) to join The Live Corp Company in San Fran Jose, where the best and brightest inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind.
But everything changes when Flint learns that his infamous FLDSMDFR machine (the Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator, which turns water into food) is still operating after the disaster of the first film -- and is now creating food-animal hybrids called "foodimals!" With the fate of humanity in his hands, Chester sends Flint and his Swallow Falls friends on a perilous mission to battle hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, hippotatomuses, cheespiders and other food creatures – which are trying to learn how to swim!
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 also includes the vocal talents of Benjamin Bratt, James Caan and Kristen Schaal.
