The new film follows on from the brilliant 2009 original and sees Flint Lockwood return to Swallow Falls and find that the famous FLDSMDFR machine is now churning our mutant food creatures.

When inventor Flint Lockwood discovers that his most infamous machine – the FLDSMDFR – is still operating and is now creating giant mutant food beasts that threaten to destroy civilization, he knows he’s the only one who can stop it. With the fate of humanity in his hands, Flint and his friends must embark on a dangerously delicious mission battling hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, apple pie-thons, double bacon cheespiders and other food creatures to save the world… again!
