Listen out for a smorgasbord of tasty food-based puns including 'a leek in the boat'

A new trailer for Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 has been released. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch it.

The two-minute teaser features a smorgasbord of delicious food-based puns including “mosquitoasts”, “tacodiles” and “a leek in the boat” – used here to refer to a vegetable aboard a ship.

Released in 2009, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs was a quirky computer-animated comedy based on the children’s book of the same name by Judi and Ron Barrett. It became a big hit at the box office, grossing over $243 million (£160 million) worldwide.

The sequel opens in the US on September 27, but UK cinema-goers will have to wait until October 25 to tuck in. Anna Faris, Bill Hader and Neil Patrick Harris have all reprised their voice roles from the first film.

However, Mr T won’t be returning as sporty police officer Earl Devereaux, with the role being voiced instead by Terry Crews. Another new addition to the cast is Flight Of The Conchords star Kristen Schaal, who has leant her distinctive voice to a character called Barb, a lipstick-wearing orangutan with a human brain.
