Pixar aired a new TV spot for Cars 2 at the Daytona 500 this weekend. I’m still waiting to be excited for this movie, but nothing I’ve seen so far has managed to do that. If anything, finishing off the TV spot with a Japanese toilet joke is a bit disheartening.
Hit the jump to check out the TV spot as well as two new images from the film. Cars 2 features the voices of Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Michael Caine, Tony Shalhoub, Cheech Marin, Michael Keaton, Emily Mortimer, Jason Isaacs, Joe Mantegna, Peter Jacobson, Thomas Kretschmann, Eddie Izzard, and John Turturro. The film opens in 3D on 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.
