More Mr. T and bungled science work fill the new Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs trailer, based on the children's book by Judi Barrett.

Call me an old softie, but after seeing two trailers for Cloudy, it feels like the essence of my favorite childhood book is being adapted in a clever and compassionate way for the big screen. The story follows the residents of Chewandswallow, whose lives are changed when clouds overhead start to rain food into their little lives.

Granted, in the book they didn't need a machine: It was just a magical mystical happening in the skies, but that wouldn't really fill out more than 30 minutes of footage. So a few new characters needed to be introduced along with a witty little scientist hopeful, voiced by Bill Hader. In fact the vocal talent they wrangled for film is pretty impressive: Listen for Bruce Campbell, Anna Faris, James Caan, Tracy Morgan and the one and only Mr. T.


Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs will be in theaters September 18th.
