Take a look at a new trailer for Pixar’s animated sequel “Cars 2″. I have yet to see the first movie, so I haven’t a clue what this is all about, but it’s apparently about sentient cars in a universe run by cars. Which is weird. Who changes their tires? Puts gas in them? Why am I asking real-world questions about a movie that stars talking cars? Your guess is as good as mine.
Star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship to exciting new places in “Cars 2″ when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. Adding to the fast-paced fun is a colorful new all-car cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors.
Starring Owen Wilson, John Ratzenberger, Bonnie Hunt, Tony Shalhoub, Cheech Marin, Larry The Cable Guy and directed by Brad Lewis and John Lasseter.
Zooming into theaters June 24, 2011.
