Honestly, I liked the first Cars movie. I thought it was fun and yet another Pixar slam dunk. I know many people have expressed issues over it, saying it’s the worst Pixar movie to date, but come on…it’s still Pixar. Saying something’s the worst Pixar movie is about like saying one girl is less pretty than the rest in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She’s still insanely hot, just not as hot as the others.
That being said though, I just haven’t been looking forward to this film. The new trailer is helping me get there though. Finally we get footage that explains the plot, and get to see something that’s exciting. Overall, it’s not ‘wow’ impressive. It’s pretty much average, but it’s a lot more than fans have been getting lately from this film.
It appears that tis’ the season for movie trailers as a ridiculous amount of them are coming out now. Not that we’re complaining over here, but they just seem to be hitting all at once. In the grand scheme of things, this won’t be the most exciting trailer you see this week, but for fans eager for Cars 2 footage, it hits the spot.
For those of you who haven’t seen the official synopsis, here you go:
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.
