New Cars 2 Trailer Online
Updated: Michael Caine, Isaacs and more

17 November 2010  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Disney

submit to reddit

Update: The extra cast have now been confirmed as Michael Caine as seasoned spy Finn McMissile, Emily Mortimer as spy-in-training Holley Shiftwell, Jason Isaacs as spy jet Siddeley, Joe Mantegna as Grem, Peter Jacobson as Acer, and Thomas Kretschmann as Professor Z.

No sooner was the new poster unveiled this morning than we heard rumours of a spanking-new trailer for Cars 2, and sure enough it screeched to a halt in our metaphorical forecourt soon afterwards.

Directed by John Lasseter with Brad Lewis, it's the further, globe-trotting adventures of Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and his mate Tow Mater (Larry the Cable Guy). But the big news is that that's Michael Caine voicing British super spy Finn McMissile, who will therefore have a touch of the Harry Palmer about him, and not simply be a James Bond clone as some had suggested.

Cars 2 is out on July 22, 2011, in the UK, and June 24, 2011. Yes, Pixar's showing blatant favouritism to their home turf in release dates again. We're going to have to have a word; we can't possibly be expected to keep waiting an extra month for their films.

RE: Yuck
L: adambatman82 L: crazymoviesdude It's pretty sad, but I am actually quite sad about this. Sure, I found Cars to be one of Pixar's least impressive films, but for me it was still miles ahead of the competition. And sure, if Cars was just as good as the rest (which arguably it was close for me) they are due a misstep, which this could be, but it's just a shame that Pixar seem to be going off the rails from here on in. All their movies (Cars included for me) have been brilliant More

Can't wait
Really excited about Cars 2, and the tone of the trailer suggests a nice little diversion from the original. I know I'm in the minority here, but I love the world of Cars, and find the characters incredibly appealing. I'm interested to see what happens with Doc Hudson, now that Paul Newman is no longer with us, and it'll be interesting to see how Lasseter's return to behind the proverbial camera fares. More

RE: Yuck
It's not that difficult to post in the forums not on the site directly. Plus, for the first time ever after seeing a Pixar trailer, the only reaction I'm left with is... Well, that sucked. More
