A new poster for Disney/Pixar’s much anticipated summer 2011 movie Cars 2 has raced its way online. The one-sheet brings back the logo from the first teaser poster and adds a raft of characters in the foreground. It’s good, but not quite as good as those vintage posters they released a few weeks back.
The movie, which is a sequel to the 2006 film, sees Mater (the tow-truck) caught in a global conspiracy when he and Lightning McQueen head to Europe for a big race.
A stellar voice-cast features Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, John Ratzenberger, Bonnie Hunt, Tony Shalhoub and Cheech Marin. Sir Michael Caine has even got in on the action voicing Finn McMissile (what a name!). The behind the scenes talent is top-notch too with the movie being co-directed by John Lasseter (Cars) and Brad Lewis (Ratatouille).
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.
