Lighting McQueen, Mater and the gang are back in an all new action-packed adventure in Disney’s Cars 2 in the all new Blu-ray and DVD combo pack!
Lightning McQueen (voice by Owen Wilson), Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), Sally (Bonnie Hunt), and the rest of the gang from Radiator Springs return to the screen in this sequel to Pixar’s Cars (2006). But instead of evoking a nostalgic vision of Route 66 through the American Southwest, director John Lasseter and his artists spoof James Bond films in a fast-paced adventure that mixes espionage and road racing.
After a successful season on the track, Lightning is looking forward to some rest at home, but Mater gets him involved in an elaborate three-part international race sponsored by Sir Miles Axlerod (Eddie Izzard) to promote his new synthetic auto fuel. While serving on Lightning’s pit crew, Mater inadvertently gets mixed up with two British secret agent cars, Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) and Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer), who are investigating a plot to sabotage the race. Myriad complications ensue before Lightning and Mater get back to the (relative) peace of Radiator Springs.
The Pixar artists clearly had a lot of fun spoofing locations in Tokyo, London, Paris, and the Italian Riviera, and creating auto versions of sumo wrestlers, kabuki actors, Queen Elizabeth II, and a doting Italian mother.
To win the Blu-ray combo pack, plus the soundtrack CD to the film, a Holiday Car Trip Kit and a $25 gift card courtesy from Visa, tell us, what nickname Jennifer Lopez’s Fiat car that she presented at Sunday night’s American Music Awards should have?
The giveaway will run for a week and I’ll announce the winner next Monday, November 28th, so stay tuned!
