New Trailer for CARS 2

A new trailer for Pixar’s Cars 2 has been released. This marks the third full-length trailer because it’s not like this movie sells itself. The film follows Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) as he sets out to compete in the World Grand Prix, all while Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) gets wrapped up in some international espionage.  This new trailer not only has a car falling into a vat of poop, but also has an awful song to go along with it.  You can argue that Pixar needs this kind of widely-accessible film to give them the money to do riskier fare like Ratatouille, but Pixar made its name on not pandering to the lowest common denominator and still making crazy money.  I fear for this film.

Hit the jump for the synopsis and trailer.  Cars 2 also features the voice talent of Emily Mortimer, Jason Isaacs, Bruce Campbell, John Turturro, Thomas Kretschmann, and Michael Caine. It opens in 3D June 24th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Cars 2:

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.
