New “Cars 2” Poster

March 22, 2011 Leave a comment

Somehow I get the feeling that Pixar is really wanting to drive the point home that “Cars 2” is no longer confined to just the cute little town of Radiator Springs…

Why am I the only one asking where the hell Sally is in all of this? I need to know why she is no longer the “nut” to McQueen’s “lug.”

New Cars 2 Trailer

A brand new trailer for “Cars 2” has been posted.

Every Christmas, my Grandma makes a new dish for Christmas dinner, and every year it looks questionable at best. Yet when we all sit down to eat, everyone tries it, and we always wind up enjoying every last bite.

“Cars 2” feels like a dish my Grandma would make for Christmas dinner, but with far less cat hair.

A brand new “Cars 2” TV spot is out, and it features bidet humor! Intrigued? You darn right you are. Just click the brand-spankin’-new image below to check the spot out.

If I can find a solid YouTube version that allows for embedding, I’ll update this post. In related news: If I can find a suitable replacement for “Gogurt,” I’ll update this post as well.

More “Cars 2” Characters Revealed

Two new “Cars 2” characters to check out, complete with fancy bios!

“Sir Miles Axlerod is a former oil baron who has sold off his fortune, converted himself into an electric vehicle and has devoted his life to finding the renewable, clean-burning energy source of the future—ultimately discovering what he believes is the fuel everyone should be using. Axlerod is also the car behind the World Grand Prix, a three-country race he created that attracts the world’s top athletes—but it’s really an excuse to show off his new wonder-fuel, Allinol.”

“Nigel Gearsley from Warwickshire, England, is an Aston Martin DB9R racer bearing #9. He got his start racing the Speed Hill Climb—a unique, completely uphill race through the Aston Hill Mountain Area that his family has run for generations. Nigel’s racing career has been anything but an uphill challenge, as he’s won nearly every start in the past few years on the Grand Touring Sports Car circuit, including a string of podiums at Nurburgring and Le Mans. His cool British refinement makes him an imposing presence on the World Grand Prix courses.”

Stitch Kingdom got their hands on the below image from “Cars 2” showing that at least a few of the Radiator Springs gang will be making the world tour with Lightning.

Still no Sally though…

Maybe she’s off on a “Thelma and Louise” style bender with Bo Peep from “Toy Story.”

Brand New Cars 2 Character Revealed

The folks at Disney/Pixar are brilliant. Outside of making one-of-a-kind films, they also have a team of amazingly gifted marketing folks who probably hang upside down in caves and spend their days dreaming of clever gimmicks like including foreign cars in their next big sequel that appeal to each of the major markets the film will be released in. The latest to roll out of their international “Cars 2” garage is Francesco Bernoulli:

Francesco Bernoulli grew up in the shadow of the famous Monza race course in Italy where he and his friends would sneak onto the track and race the famous Pista di Alta Velocita bank turn. He was an instant winner on the amateur circuit and soon became an international Formula Racer champion. The ladies love Francesco’s open wheels, youngsters look up to his winning spirit and fellow racers envy his speed. But Francesco’s biggest fan is Francesco himself, as evidenced by his racing number. As the most famous race car in Europe, #1 Francesco is a favorite to win the World Grand Prix, which also makes him Lightning McQueen’s chief rival.

Fly, crazy marketing bats! Fly like the wind!
