Cars 2 - Retro!


This newly unveiled movie poster for Cars 2 is circulating throughout the online Disney world, but I couldn't resist showcasing here.  Pixar loves retro and that is clearly evident in this throwback to James Bond-style 1960s era designs.  Great stuff!

But where is the image of Mater?

Looks like that's him at the top, with the monocle over his left eye.

Um... Is that car in the foreground supposed to have been built to drive sideways in the water? I'm not seeing how those ski blades would keep him from going under the way they are shown right now....

@Scott -- those are "hydrofoils":

Instead of acting like skis, they act in the water almost like a plane's wings do in the air. The boat floats around on its hull at low speeds, but at high speeds those wings make it rise up out of the water, and it can go much faster. Check out ”hydroplane racing" for footage of how fast those boats can go.

The one Pixar movie I really did not enjoy at all. It is one of the least popular, but when you pull in billions in merchandise, what can you do. Expected more from Pixar.

Least popular? You clearly don't have kids. Among the toddler-set, this is still one of THE movies. Can't wait to see #2.
