The First James Bond-Cars Film Adventure! I've got a confession to make: Pixar really sold me with this whole James Bond mixed with Cars storyline. I'm hooked. And brilliantly designed posters like this are only making me more excited to see this, which I know is pretty much sacrilege to Pixar devotees who despise the first Cars. This new "vintage" poster for Pixar's Cars 2 recently hit the web and while I can't find its true origin, I owe credit to Upcoming Pixar and Cinema Blend for helping me find a high res version. I just love how perfectly classic James Bond it is, with the European villain-car guy and everything. Enjoy!
Lightning and Mater travel around the world for the Race of Champions, but when Mater saves the life of a British secret agent named Finn McMissile, he gets entangled in a spy thriller, only 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. I can't wait!
As cool as this poster is, I just wish it was a poster for the Incredibles2. I mean I'm sure this will be as good as everyone expects from pixar but I really want to know what's happening with the Incredibles rather than Cars. But it is a cool poster.

Great poster and cool idea with the Bond theme, but for some reason I've never had any interest in seeing Cars. Any other Pixar sequel would be more welcome, but I guess even they can't ignore the money-making possibilities (it seems like the still have more Cars merch than anything). I would love to see Bugs Life 2 and hear Dave Foley again instead of Larry the... ugh....

Other than toy story I enjoyed Monsters Inc and Wall-E the most. Cars was just ok for me.

Looks fanmade too me. good concept... a bit to empty-looking to be a bon-poster too me.

Finn McMissile looks great! He personifies James Bond. It has veered away from the usual cute Pixar film posters that I have seen in the past.
