New Trailer For Cars 3

12 January 2017 4:09 PM, PST | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Pixar’s Cars has always been considered the lesser of the legendary animation company’s output, putting jokes above heart and basically just a vehicle (I’m not apologising) to sell toys by the truckload. But then our first look at Cars 3 did something crazy and tease a slightly darker, more emotional story with Owen Wilson’s Lightning McQueen dealing with the fact that he might not have what it takes to be a race car anymore, the only life he’s ever know. A new extended look has come our way, shedding more light on that story that basically comes across as any come back sports movie you care to name. While this isn’t Pixar going gritty, it is intriguing to see them treating this red headed step child of a franchise a lot differently than we’ve previously seen. Released: 14th July Synopsis: Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, »

‘Cars 3’ New Teaser Trailer: Lightning McQueen Makes a Comeback

10 January 2017 7:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Pixar has just released a brand new trailer for the next chapter in its perennially popular “Cars” series, “Cars 3.” The teaser trailer first aired on Espn during the college football national championship between Alabama and Clemson.

The third installment in the “Cars” franchise follows the return of Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson), who finds himself pushed out of the sport that he loves by a new generation of racers. In order to get back in the game, McQueen will need the talents of a young technician, Cruz Ramirez, who has dreams of her own. McQueen will also draw inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet.

In the first official teaser, released back in November, McQueen got into a horrible wreck. The car somersaults through the air and crashes down onto the track, pieces of it flying every which way. »

New extended sneak peek for Cars 3 arrives

10 January 2017 12:32 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Things are looking very bad for Lightning McQueen and the rest of Pixar’s Cars. The deeply depressing first teaser trailer giving way to further details of series favourite McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson)’s fall from grace. New racers on the circuit point to the unthinkable possibility that Ol’ Lightning may have run out of steam. Cue the dramatic hoist on which Pixar are hanging their latest film.

Today’s extended look at Cars 3 shows us a little more of the latest film to arrive from the Emeryville filmmakers. New cars means new voices, and we’ve been waiting to hear more from Cristela Alonzo (the canary yellow Cruz Ramirez) and Armie Hammer (voicing the neon blue Jackson Storm). The ‘Lightning’ and ‘Storm’ names are a neat nod to the battle that will take place in the latest film from Pixar, and the first from director Brian Fee. »

New ‘Cars 3’ trailer speeds in

9 January 2017 9:57 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Disney-Pixar have released a brand new trailer for their upcoming summer 2017 movie Cars 3. The sequel speeds into cinemas this coming July.

‘It’s not over until Lightning strikes’, reads the promo material for the film, referring to the central character of Lighning McQueen, voiced by Owen Wilson. Joining Wilson in the all-new story that tests the heart of a champion in a high-tech world are Cristela Alonzo and Armie Hammer as unconventional trainer Cruz Ramirez and next-gen racer Jackson Storm, respectively.

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test »

The Next Generation Gets On The Track In New Trailer For ‘Cars 3’

9 January 2017 7:47 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For a long time, the “Cars” franchise was deemed as Pixar’s lesser catalogue entry, but one that has been a cash cow, reaping in millions and millions dollars thanks to licensed product sales. And so, that there’s a “Cars 3” is a no brainer. But not only is looking like the series has grown up a bit (check out the gritty first teaser), director Brian Fee calls it “the most human” film in the franchise yet.

The End of Lightning's Career Looms in New Cars 3 Trailer

9 January 2017 7:18 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The 2017 College Football National Championship was home to hard hits and big plays as Alabama took on Clemson.  The commercials weren't exempt from the hard hits as Disney-Pixar released the trailer for Cars 3, featuring what could be the end of Lightning McQueen's career.

Previously, we unveiled Disney's newest characters to join the Cars track.  The only thing that was missing was a trailer that showed how these characters would impact our hero, Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), that is until the College Football National Championship game.  Take a look at the darker, more serious trailer for Cars 3!

As you can see from the trailer, Disney/Pixar are going a little more serious with their 3rd Cars film.  Instead of being happy-go-lucky with a goofy Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), Cars 3 explores the uncomfortable fact of life, everyone gets old and it's not fun for professional athletes.

9 January 2017 7:02 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

It's not over until Lightning strikes in the latest trailer for Cars 3

9 January 2017 6:45 PM, PST | | See recent JoBlo news »

Although I don't consider the Cars franchise to be anywhere close to Pixar's best work, the series obviously has its fans and, as it's the brainchild of Pixar chief John Lasseter and brings in an obscene amount of merchandising money each year, we're about to receive a third entry in the series. Perhaps in order to win back those who threw up their hands and left after Cars... Read More »

Rip-Roaring New Trailer For Cars 3 Emerges Onto The Starting Grid

9 January 2017 6:14 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to start your engines, for the latest Cars 3 trailer has sped online for your viewing pleasure.

Building on the momentum established from last week’s teaser, in which Lightning McQueen was seen revving his engines in the face of Jackson Storm, this all-new promo is designed to chronicle the bitter rivalry between the two. Now fast approaching his twilight years on the race course, Owen Wilson’s iconic red stock car is written off as a washed-up champion by the time Cars 3 opens, and it’s Armie Hammer’s arrogant Storm that seizes control of that vacuum to become the talk of the circuit.

It’s essentially about the closest thing an automobile will get to a mid-life crisis and in Cars 3, McQueen will be nudged back on the road to recovery by Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), an overly enthusiastic racer that ignites a comeback story. »

Cars 3 Trailer #2: Disney's Next Generation of Racers Arrive

9 January 2017 5:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Start your engines, Pixar fans, because a brand new trailer for Cars 3 is here! Sure, the Cars franchise hasn't exactly been the most beloved from Pixar over the years, but Cars 3 is looking to make a major course correction. Now, with this latest trailer, we get our first full, real look at the third installment in the Cars series.

The latest trailer for Pixar's Cars 3 dropped during the college football national championship game on Espn, with the studio releasing the trailer online shortly after. Disney had released a couple of brief teasers online for the upcoming third installment, but this is the first video that gives us any sense of story. That said, the first teaser that featured Lightning McQueen getting into a really brutal car wreck definitely perked up some eyebrows, since it was much more intense than the previous entries in the Cars franchise so far. »

Armie Hammer and Cristela Alonzo Add Their Voices to Cars 3

6 January 2017 2:46 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Owen Wilson and his vehicular counterpart, Lightning McQueen, are back in an all-new Cars story. In this 3rd movie, he'll be joined by newcomers Armie Hammer and Cristela Alonzo.  Come inside to get under the hood of the vehicles they'll be playing!

Cars 3 comes out this summer but before we hit the motor speedway, Disney-Pixar revealed the cars that will be opposite Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson).  They didn't just reveal them with words, though.  Nay, they gave us show-style videos to get an idea of what the new sports cars will be like.

Kicking off the duo of new castmates is well-known actor, and man with the greatest name ever, Armie Hammer who will be playing devilish sports car, Jackson Storm.  

Storm is described as fast, sleek and ready to race. A frontrunner in the next generation of racers, Storm’s quiet confidence and cocky demeanor are off-putting—but »

Coming Distractions: The latest Cars 3 teaser plays like an actual car commercial

6 January 2017 9:35 AM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

Okay, so you weren’t such a huge fan of Cars or Cars 2. Well, how do you feel about actual cars? That seems to be the central thesis of the newest teaser for Cars 3. Seeing as how this franchise one of the rare misfires for Pixar, it’s maybe not a terrible bit of marketing slight of hand. It seems to be sort of a continuation of the strategy they employed in the gritty initial teaser, which seemed to be selling to the prospect of mutilation and death and featured the tagline: “From This Moment, Everything Will Change.”

To be precise, not everything will change. Owen Wilson is still onboard as the (possibly doomed) anthropomorphic stock car Lightning McQueen. But as you’ll see here, there are some new featured characters, including Jackson Storm and Cruz Ramirez, voiced by Armie Hammer (The Social Network) and Cristela Alonzo (Cristela »

5 January 2017 5:16 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Story Details For Pixar’s Car 3 Screech Online; Armie Hammer And Cristela Alonzo Among Voice Cast

5 January 2017 9:40 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nipping at the heels of this morning’s teaser reveal, one designed to place fans on red alert ahead of this weekend’s full-length trailer, Entertainment Weekly has peeled back the curtain on Cars 3, Brian Fee’s animated sequel out to recapture the rip-roaring spirit of John Lasseter’s 2006 original.

That’s not to say Cars 2 was a total write-off – a $560 million worldwide cume is not to be balked at – but six months out from the release of Cars 3, there’s a general feeling online that Fee’s threequel has the potential to steer Pixar’s popular racing series back on course. It’ll once again involved franchise star Lightning McQueen, and we now have confirmation of two actors who will be joining Owen Wilson in the voice booth: Armie Hammer of Nocturnal Animals fame and Cristela Alonzo, creator of hit TV series Cristela.

We love this first look at Miguel from Pixar’s new film Coco

5 January 2017 8:15 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

The marketing bandwagon for Pixar’s 2017 films has already roared off the starting grid with a marvelously dark and portentous trailer for Cars 3, due out in June this year. However there is, for only the second time in their history, another film on its way from the Emeryville animation studio in the next twelve months. Coco is directed by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina and is inspired by the Mexican holiday the Day of the Dead, itself inspiration for 2014’s The Book of Life and the much-loved LucasArts adventure game Grim Fandango.

Reuniting with his Toy Story 3 producer Darla K. Anderson, Unkrich’s new film will tell the tale of a 12 year-old boy (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez) who comes across the guitar of fabled musician Ernesto de la Cruz (played by Benjamin Bratt). Miguel uses the magic in the legendary instrument to open a door »

Cars 3 Introduces New Millennials Jackson Storm and Cruz Ramirez

5 January 2017 7:55 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney and Pixar are always at the cusp of social trends, and that may never be truer than with with Cars 3 as the studios grapple with their own transference from old to new. The movie is being described as 'mobile millennials vs. mid-size cars with midlife crises'. And today, we get a look at two of the new Millennial characters in this impending sequel. And if there is one thing you should know about these twenty somethings. They loathe being labeled a Millennial.

Entertainment Weekly is the first to introduce new villain Jackson Storm and exuberant hero Cruz Ramirez, who is taking over for Lightening McQueen on the race track. We get a good look at these speedsters and their racing stats with new images and character profile videos. They follow the cryptic trailer tease that dropped in November. And trailer two is zooming around the corner soon.

Lightning McQueen Stages A Rocky-Esque Comeback In Latest Cars 3 Teaser Trailer

5 January 2017 7:42 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Disney and Pixar’s inaugural teaser trailer for Cars 3 stole the headlines for its harrowing tone, showcasing a certain red stock car spiraling wildly through the air, the animation giants have today unveiled the other side of Brian Fee’s animated threequel, in which we’re introduced to Jackson Storm and the iconic Lightning McQueen.

It’s a markedly different teaser from what we’ve seen before, showing McQueen as his usual, sprightly self, racing off into the darkness – and, presumably, onto the race track. For Cars 3 will show Owen Wilson’s chirpy lead at his lowest moment, as he’s effectively blindsided by the next generation of upcoming racers ready to lay claim to the circuit.

It’s about the closest thing an automobile will get to a mid-life crisis and in Cars 3, McQueen will be nursed back to recovery by Cruz Ramirez, a sprightly, »

Meet Jackson Storm And Cruz Ramirez In A Character Teaser For Disney And Pixar's Cars 3

5 January 2017 7:26 AM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A new character teaser for Disney and Pixar's Cars 3 has landed, and this one isn't nearly as dark as the film's first teaser that debuted last month. Instead, this teaser gives us some quick shots of Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), and two new characters that will feature in the film, Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) and new rival Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer).  In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Brian Fee explained that the third film's story will centre around the theme of getting older. “McQueen is not the young hotshot anymore, the kid he was back then in Cars 1. He’s in the middle of his life, and as an athlete, that’s getting up there. You have your whole life ahead of you, yet your career is starting to show its age. He’s looking in the mirror and realizing, ‘I’m 40 years old,’ and dealing with the »
