Sony Pictures celebrates the release of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 this October. They also offered some lucky Mumsnetters and their children the chance to go to an exclusive early screening of the film. Read their reviews here.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 picks up where Sony Pictures Animation's 2009 hit comedy left off. Inventor Flint Lockwood's genius is finally being recognised as he's invited by his idol Chester V to join The Live Corp Company, where the best and brightest inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind.

It's always been Flint's dream to be recognised as a great inventor, but everything changes when he discovers that his most infamous machine (which turns water into food) is still operating and is now creating food-animal hybrids – "foodimals!" With the fate of humanity in his hands, Chester sends Flint and his friends on a dangerously delicious mission to save the world again! 


Exclusive Mumsnet screening

Sony Pictures UK took 330 Mumsnetters and their families to an exclusive pre-release screening of the much anticipated movie, Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs 2!

The two screenings took place on Sunday 13 October in London and Manchester.

They included a variety of fun-filled activities such as face painting, a balloon artist, a Cloudy photobooth and more (as well as some refreshments for the adults!). 

Meet the characters and foodimals

Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader)
Flint Lockwood is an inventor who dreams of creating amazing things that can change everyone's life. Flint's most famous invention (the one that turns water into food!) is still active and is now spewing out living food creatures – foodimals!

Sam Sparks (Anna Faris)
Sam Sparks is friendly, fun, outgoing, and very smart. When she first started as a weather reporter, she got a little nervous and tongue- tied, but after that she was great on camera. Sam is finally being accepted as a serious meteorologist who remains perky in the face of danger.

Chester V (Will Forte)
If you could genetically splice Steve Jobs, Richard Branson and a circus ringmaster into one man, you would get Chester V, the eccentric genius behind the global company Live Corp and all of the cool stuff they created "for the betterment of mankind."

Steve The Monkey (Neil Patrick Harris)
Steve is a cute young vervet monkey and Flint Lockwood's lab assistant and best friend.

Barry the Strawberry
The shy, young strawberry that befriends Flint and his friends upon their arrival on the transformed island of Swallow Falls. He's a sweet little guy!
