Must Watch: Awesome New Daytona 500 TV Spot for Pixar's 'Cars 2'!
It looks like Transformers: Dark of the Moon wasn't the only movie getting some exposure at the Daytona 500 yesterday. But of course - Pixar's Cars 2, one of the most deserving films to be at that race, also got a brand new 60-second TV spot packed full of new footage and more. Though we've already seen a full teaser trailer for this, I think I'm starting to get a bitter gist of the story and it basically seems like a Bond movie mixed with an international car race, which actually seems pretty awesome. It's really just a damn good TV spot. Like The Pixar Blog says, "How could anybody not look forward to seeing Cars 2 after watching this?"
Watch the first full TV spot from the Daytona 500 for Pixar's Cars 2:
Cars 2 sees Lightning and Mater traveling around the world for the Race of Champions that includes other disciplines like Formula One. Mater ends up in a 'Hitchcockian' case of mistaken identity, saves the life of a British secret agent named Finn McMissile and becomes embroiled in a spy thriller, but no one believes him.
Cars 2 is being directed by former Pixar producer Brad Lewis, who is making his directorial debut following producing work on Ratatouille. We've also heard that John Lasseter has returned to Pixar to help co-direct, but Disney is quick to deny that. No screenplay credits are listed yet for Cars 2. Disney will be bringing Cars 2 to theaters everywhere in Disney Digital 3D starting June 24th in the middle of the summer. Look good?
