Pixar’s full “Cars 2” trailer races online

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The most recent – and, we have to assume, final – trailer for Disney and Pixar’s “Cars 2” has arrived online over at MSN. It will be attached to the studio’s animated “Mars Needs Moms” when it opens in theaters this Friday, but you can see it right here (because we hate waiting).

The clip shows more footage, but continues to advance the two storylines that we knew would powers “Cars 2.” Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) competes in a global race that takes him through international locales, while his best friend Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) gets caught up in a little espionage when Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) mistakes the bumbling tow truck for a spy.

And while I know we’re supposed to trust in Pixar, because they have earned it over the years, this is the first one that feels like it might fall short of the studio’s lofty expectations. Not because of the original “Cars,” which I’m actually quite fond of. I’m just not sure a spy spoof is a strong enough idea for a sequel. The “Toy Story” sequels – the only sequels in Pixar’s oeuvre – had stronger concepts from the start. But we’ll see. Maybe Pixar has more powerful stuff up its “Cars” sleeve.

The sequel, directed by John Lasseter and co-directed by Brad Lewis, opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on June 24.
