Recent movie pictures with movie news - Cars 2

in Car

Pixar has another winner with upcoming movie "Cars 2." "Cars", the 2006 model from Pixar, is considered by movie news to be one of its best efforts and it seems that director John Lasseter has gone a couple of steps further to make "Cars 2" even better. Animated characters Lightning McQueen and pick-up truck Mater have left Radiator Springs and have joined the Grand Prix circuit in this new movie. The "friends" go around the world on the circuit and get involved in some international intrigue. The cars in "Cars 2" are plenty sweeter than the cars in "Fast Five," and new movierelease "Cars 2" runs more smoothly than a lot of Pixar's recent moviepictures. This movie is going to do well both at home and internationally.

This sequel just fine on its own and it's not necessary to see the first movie to understand the second. Lasseter is a car fancier and uses the international locations to add all sorts of vintage cars to the show from an Aston Martin to an East German Trabant. He also dresses up Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower and the end credits to the movie. Lasseter manages to have something special or beautiful to look at in every scene and to listen to as well.

Co-directors Brad Lewis and Dan Fogelman, along with Lasseter, and screenwriter Ben Queen, have come up with a story that's simple but not too simple. The movie begins on the ocean and is full of scary oil rigs and British spies, Finn McMissile (Michael Caine's interpretation of an Aston Martin), and Holley Shiftwell, a Miata-type car voiced by Emily Mortimer. These "cars" use their special enhancements like wings and weapons to make a nighttime escape from the sea.

Back in the desert, red car Lightning McQueen, voiced by Owen Wilson, is hanging out with buddy tow-truck Mater, voiced by Larry the Cable Guy. Here Lightning is talked into entering some races where a Land Rover named Sir Miles Axelrod, voiced by Eddie Izzard, plans to prove that his clean fuel called Allinol is a good substitute for gas. There are loads of jokes here: verbal, visual, and musical.

The first international scene takes place in Tokyo. Cars are involved in sumo wrestling here and the lights of Ginza are extraordinarily bright. The lights (Pixar makes them preternaturally bright to make up for the dimming effect of 3D glasses) are so bright you'll be glad for your 3D glasses.

In Paris, Les Halles is a spare parts marketplace, you'll see Gusteau's from Ratatouille, and the tops of the Eiffel Tower, and the Arch de Triomphe are re-imagined. Mater is back after returning home after Tokyo and his laugh can get pretty old and take over the film a bit.

Then on to Porto Corsa, Italy: it tends to look like a Monaca if it were a theme park. Francesco, the Italian champ voiced by John Turturro, plans to run over Lightning McQueen and Mater, in disguise, plans to get in with a bunch of Euro cars who are going to discredit Allinol so as to keep oil markets high. You'll get the message.
