New Cars Trailer Online
Pixar's latest revs up a gear

10 March 2006  |  Written by

The full-length theatrical trailer for Cars, the new Pixar movie featuring the voices of Owen Wilson, Paul Newman and Michael Keaton, has premiered online. It offers some breathtakingly realistic desert vistas, frenetic racing action and a quick run-down of the plot, in which materialistic racing car Lightning McQueen (Wilson) ends up stuck in a small town and learns life lessons from its rusty inhabitants. Watch the trailer here.

I know someone who saw the entire film
A friend of mine is a film reporter and saw the entire film last week, even before the Pixar dept saw it. It was at the Pixar studio in San Fransisco. The movie was great, but was no Nemo. The humour is very much focused on car-lovers. The looks are incredible, but the cars have limited mimics. All in all a lesser Pixar film, humour- and storywise, but another great Pixar film in terms of looks... More

Reminds me of Thomas the Tank Engine...
... Hmm, does any one else think this looks kind of like Thomas The Tank Engine but with cars instead of trains? Thomas and friends had faces too, and were also sentient vehicles of transport. Granted, they had the Fat Controller (later reimagined as Mr Controller to avoid offending obese Americans), but humans barely figured in Thomas either. BUT... Thomas was great, and Cars looks s**t. Lassetter's love of little toy cars has clouded his judgement and he's probably surrounded by so many 'Yes' More

Fergie's helicopter
I must admit I was sorta disappointed with the trailers so far. It all looks a bit too much like the little helicopter by Fergie. Then again: I had similar doubt with The Incredibles (humans! has Pixar gone insane) and that turned out pretty nifty... we'll see in a few months More

RE: RE:
i couldnt really give two hoots about this film. but then again, i didnt about nemo, and now i love it! so maybe this will have the same effect. but im not too convinced.   id much prefer an incredibles 2: the iceman cometh.....something for frozone. lol seriously, i loved the incredibles, and to see another would be GREAT More

Doc Hollywood anyone?
Doesn't this storyline ring lot sof bells? Hot shot city type - forced to spend time with locals he initially despises and later comes to treasure, while finding love along the way? Sure he'll leave and win the race, but then he'll be back to settle down. This looks weak, unispired and not at all funny. Oh dear, oh dear.... More

I hope Pixar don't fail, but this doesn't look inviting in terms of characterisation or humour. Let's hope those San Francisco geniuses can prove me wrong. More

Hmmmm.
Ok the film looks great, Pixar don't appear to be hitting a note wrong with the picture (thus far), But why in the name of all that is pixilated and holy is the 'Hi-quality' version of the trailer only available for people with woefully depressing windows computers?? Pixar is basically run by Steve Jobs (as is now Disney) so why are they ignoring the Mac crowd?! Especially seen as the bloody film was made on a sodding Mac. Grrrrrrrrr More

Unlike Nemo, etc, the only thing this really doesn't seem to have going for it is cute characters... Cars can never be a) cute or b) sexy. Discuss. And meanwhile, Pixar should be congratulated on trying out different things... Okay, it might not work out every time, but I'd rather take one failure and six fantastic hits over a string of mediocre same-old-crap films that other studios put out over and over again. And anyway, low expectations might mean the most pleasant surprise from Pixar yet... More

completely uninteresting
Been waiting for Pixar to release a trailer for this that would finaly grab my attention and make me want to see the film. But here we are at the full length trailer and it still looks like a CBeebies cartoon for toddlers, but with a multi million dollar budget. It just seems utterly unappealing. If there was any humour in that trailer I'm affraid it went way over my head. Pixars first stumble? More

Wouldn't worry
Go back and look at the trailer for Finding Nemo. That was distinctly lacking in laughs too, and look how great the finished product turned out to be. Have faith in Pixar, folks! More

A polished turd
Yes, the look is fantastic, but when they can't manage to put a single joke in a trailer, you start to suspect that the rest of the film will be equally unfunny. More

New Cars trailer
Ok, so it's not as instantly funny as other Pixar trailers, but I do reckon it has promise. I guess we'll have to wait and see with this one... I just hope that, if this doesn't go well, that it's not the start of a trend for Pixar. More
