AICN Exclusive: Brand Spankin' New CARS Poster!!!

Published at: March 15, 2006, 7:18 p.m. CST by staff

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here from sunny Las Vegas. I have the world exclusive first look at the brand new poster for CARS. It's a pretty sweet little poster. One of my favorite aspects from the movie (this isn't a review, just me commenting on the poster! Robot Walt Disney stay away!) was that in this world the natural wonders of the desert, the natural rock formations would form differently than in our world.

In the CARS world, the beautiful red cliffs of the desert would start to form car shapes. What Pixar picked was very appropriate and looks fantastic. It's subtle, too. Not too many people noticed it at the screening last night, but you get a nice clear look at 'em in the poster.

Anyway, you don't need any more of my blathering. Here's the poster! Enjoy!!!

    The ONLY problem I have with this is Owen Wilson

    by filker-tom

    I'm thinkin' this is gonna be a fun flick. I just wish it wasn't starring Owen Wilson, who I consider the male Tea Leoni (and, yes, that's intended to be a dire insult). On the other hand, THE EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE starred David Spade, someone else I really don't like, and he was very good. So we'll see.

    Only the Sith deal in absolutes

    by performingmonkey

    and I feel absolutely nothing for this, so does that make me a dark lord? If so, I couldn't give a fucking crap. Pixar has dropped the ball. I don't think that poster would appeal to kids, and that is the FIRST thing that it should set out to do. A redneck truck is the worst idea since ever. Owen Wilson is a pretty lame casting choice. The eyes on the cars look stupid, and always have done. Pity they couldn't have done SOMETHING about that. The title 'Cars' sucks. It needed a two-word title. Fuck off.

    Too Much like the MGM Tex Avery cartoon

    by stlfilmwire

    Remember it? One Cab's Family (dir. Tex Avery; MGM, 1952) An old cab and his wife have a baby boy car in hopes that he'll grow up and be a cab like his old man. But being young, the little car wants to be a hot rod instead. The little car races around against his father's wishes until he gets into trouble racing a train. His life barely saved by his dad but it is not without consequences. His dad gets put in the mechanic hospital. While he is making his recovery, the son shows his dad that he wants to be a cab just like his dad. The only thing is that he keeps all his racing mods. Here's an image: http://tinyurl.com/lw5eg

    by Captain Katanga

    what kind of loser comes to a talkback and proceeds to trash a film they havent seen, that is made by a director and a studio that have made pretty much nothing but great films? I want to be balanced about this but I can't, you are just f*cking IDIOTS. By all means, you cynical little pricks can stay at home while the rest of the world enjoys what is bound to be another highly enjoyable film. Cool poster too.

    by MCVamp

    Becaue Owen Wilson is Owen Wilson and Paul Newman is PAUL NEWMAN. Fast Eddie Felson, Butch Cassidy, Cool Hand F****n' Luke. And Probably because his involvement probably hinged on top billing, a la Brando for his ten minutes as Jor-El. I don't have the boner for CARS that I did for the Incredibles, but if it's Pixar? They've got my ten dollars until they put out a bad one, and then they have to put out ANOTHER bad one. Then I shall question the power of THE LUXO.

    by MiltonWaddams

    is this your first talkback? if so, welcome. also people are 'trashing' cars because the trailer and premise are both underwhelming. why don't they bill larry the cable guy on the poster? THAT'S RIGHT, LARRY THE CABLE GUY. if it turns out to be a phenomenal movie, i'd gladly eat my words, but at this point, it's scaring me.

    by cpwozzie

    As long as PIXAR is releasing only one film every one or two years, I truly believe they do not have it in them to make a bad film. They GET character, and that's all that matters. So far, I'm no amped, but won't be shocked at all when i walk away from this smiling.

    I did not warm up to any of the previous trailers and the idea of talking cars was just ... hmm .. weird ... but the last trailer struck a cord ... and my son is just getting in that age that he is gaga about cars ... and he saw the trailer and he wanted to see it again and again !!! I bet once this hits home video, it will give nemo and shrek a break from their ongoing rotation.

    "it will give nemo and shrek a break...." fuck you

    by performingmonkey

    You don't know what you're saying so here's a tip - say nothing. This is gonna be Pixar's lowest-grossing picture both at the Box Office and DVD sales. That is MY prediction. For some reason I feel like I don't want to hear Paul Newman's voice coming out of a CG truck's toothy redneck mouth. Another point, this movie isn't about kids. Toy Story is about kids because kids have toys, Monsters Inc. is about kids because it's about monsters being in kids' closets, Finding Nemo is about kids because it involves a father looking for his kid, The Incredibles involves kids having powers. That leaves A Bug's Life which isn't about kids and it's the worst Pixar movie. Cars is about a hick truck and Owen Wilson with some nice landscape CG work and some lame jokes. Go motherfucking figure, punks. Cars with eyes and teeth. I suppose you can understand why they went with the concept, but it better have a good story. The whole thing about Nemo isn't 'let's have some fish that talk', it's the story which is at the forefront.

  • March 16, 2006, 3:43 a.m. CST

    Our car doesn't talk-- but if it could!

    by Nadine_Cross

    Also, that hillbilly truck's teeth are terrible. What kind of message will this send to young talking trucks that are from the south and have eyes and teeth? I wish Hollywood would think of *them* for once.

    by Tremor

    How can you all be so fickle? Praising Pixar one minute and then predicting their demise the next, even though none of you have actually seen the film. Isn't that how it started with Disney as well? Also, A Bug's Life is Pixar's strongest film, both in terms of depth and humour and easily surpasses the likes of Monsters Inc, which while cute, was nowhere near as well written or satisfying. Also in case you didn't notice, there is a child in A Bug's Life, her name was Dot and she played a pivotal role. Or did you not notice? Equally The Incredibles wasn't about children, it was about Mr. Incredible. His kids were merely side characters.. Yet that made loads. And what is with the whole 'The eyes look stupid' debate? Where the hell do you expect them to put them for god's sake? Unless you want the face on underneath the car, then you're pretty limited as to where the eyes go. Geez!

    And in terms of making money it'll make the most - cars being infintely more marketable than both bugs, and 50s style superheroes.

    Are you actually listening to yourselves?

    by Rodimus Ben

    "Why do the cars have teeth?" "Who drives them, why do they exist?" This is INSANITY! That grown individuals (or teenagers) are asking these questions just shows how completely out of touch you are with children's film, fantasy animation, and just plain IMAGINATION! And I thank God that you people are not in charge of Pixar; I can't even imagine the lifeless tripe we would be seeing if you were. Try this on for size-- Kids... love... cars!!! It is as true now as it was when I was growing up. And while I am fully prepared to admit that the small minority that didn't probably comprise a significant portion of the posters on this site, thus skewing the perspective, it only reinforces that Pixar isn't interested in what YOU think about its product. It's interested in what every 8-year-old boy in America thinks of their product. And even if in some recess of your sobconscious, the nitpickers and naysayers remember that, they sure don't act like it with stupid questions like the ones I mentioned above. And thank God Pixar has such quality minds at work, because it truly seems like they have to prove themselves over and over again with every movie they make.

  • March 16, 2006, 6:16 a.m. CST

    You guys do realize this is a movie for kids right?

    by I Dunno

    I don't care how many oh-so-clever pop culture references they make in these films, they're ultimatly for kids. And kids aren't going to ask stupid questions like where the drivers are. They're going to naturally assume that the machines destroyed humanity in a bloody genocide and have taken over the planet. Kids are good like that.

  • March 16, 2006, 6:47 a.m. CST

    Sigh ... Further Proof

    by SamuelLappDance

    This talkback is just another example of the mindless fanboys who crave everything to be "dark and edgy" and for everything to adhere to a kind of precision logic that just kills their ability to give themselves over to the fantasy, to the vision of the filmmakers. It used to be that fandom would turn out for "Star Wars" or "E.T." or "Ghostbusters" or "Back to the Future" or "Roger Rabbit" or "Toy Story" and just have fun. "Cars" looks like a silly, good time. Nothing more, nothing less. And I love detailed posters like that where you can walk by a dozen times and see something different each time.

    No, fuck you. YOU don't know what you're talking about, so why don't YOU shut the fuck up. He said that he's sure his kid will love it, and that it'll get watched on DVD - BY HIS KID - as much as Nemo and Shrek. Nothing about quality, just that it looks like the sort of thing HIS KID would like. So get fucked yourself.

    by Trazadone

    From Iwatchstuff, "quite frankly it scares me. Previous images of this movie looked pretty goofy and friendly, while this one appears to be some kind of violent car mob. If there were ever a "car revolt," this is the image that would be on the front page of the papers. Except they'd probably have torches and pitchforks and things, to look more mob-like. And maybe a few would have penises sticking out of their front bumper, just because I think that would be really terrifying when it's driving at you."

    ...DELAYED AGAIN. THEN DELAYED YET AGAIN. Because it's flawed, not working, top-heavy with Paul Newman's pay day, unfunny, poorly-animated. Pixar has standards to live up to, so this one was sent back to the kitchen, TWICE. Whether or not it's "just for kids" - this caserole has been thrice baked and is going to be dry, over-seasoned, stringy, and unpallettable. bon apet

    by Bones

    ...but I'll porbably see it. "Suzie" was a Disney short written by the great Bill Peet (who later would go on to be an amazing children's book author)and featured both Cars with eyes and people driving them--something I had expected in this film as well. Imagine the Toy-Story like drama of cars who have dreams and needs, who are stymied by their flawed human owners. But, no. Maybe this is all in a post-apocalyptic future where cars have become sentient robots and they live in the infrastructure of a long-forgotten human society? We shall see.

    Cars Mystery Explained

    by TedTwist

    Two reasons there are talking anthromorphic vehicles -- ONE: as you can see in the background of the poster giant alien space rockets crashed on this alternate earth millions of years ago. The passengers, stranded on this world not their own destroy the indigenous lifeforms and millions of years later evolve into... well... cars. TWO: In order to tap the NASCAR loving portion of our population, Pixar has discovered the next best thing to plugging Jamie Pressley into a movie role... they make cars come alive and talk. It's the only thing that will really get those hillbilly rednecks to put down their moonshine, stub out their Marlboro Red, dab the slobber from their chin and walk into a movie theater.

Not that I dislike the English, but if a villain is any nationality that we are actually fighting at the moment, we're accused of "stereotyping". Back on the subject of the film, I wonder how many of you naysayers were actually excited at the prospect of talking fish a couple years back. Honestly. You'll watch this and you'll love it, idiots.

    You'll love it and conform because...

    by Roguewriter

    ... roughly 75% of Disney's profits in the past two decades have gone toward development and refinement of an ultra-top-secret subliminal programming code deftly and untraceably inserted into every Disney/Pixar product: "Sleep... Sleep... Conform... Eat more sugar... Buy merchandise... Conform... Don't be gay... Walt loves you, but that's not gay... Conform... Hate your parents... They're SO gay... Come to Disneyworld... Conform... Buy more merchandise... Buy BAMBI II, now on DVD for a limited time... Conform... Sleep... Sleep..."

    Check out those mountains

    by covenant

    (No, I'm not talking about Pamela Anderson). That's clever. The mountains are shaped like classic tailfins and fenders, like a '57 Chevy or something similar. This film has "maybe" written all over it. It'll do huge box office -- c'mon, it's Pixar -- but will it be memorable? Maybe. Maybe not.

    Chevron Supreme with Techron - The Movie

    It keeps my emissions low, but not my hate for the Pixar formula.

    And in time tested tradition...

    by pilgrim57

    the things hated most by AICN talkbackers is actually pretty good and ends up being the "best yet" once the film is released. I think some people like to call something "crap" just so they can hear themselves say "crap". There's just no satisfying some people. These are the folks who complain the sky is too blue, the grass is too green, the ice cream is too sweet, and the rain is too wet. Some of you need to tap into your inner kid once again, and find a sense of magic and imagination in your lives. So what if the film bombs. So what if the film ultimately stinks. So what? I personally think the movie is gonna be pretty good. I'll fork out the bucks to go see it in a movie theater. And 6-8 months later, I'll fork out the $13.99 at Walmart to add it to my growing collection of DVDs. Heck, I'll probably even dip into my pocket and fork out the $6 - $8 bucks a pop for one of the cute toys that'll be launched by companies that could care less how good the movie is. But I'll do so, not because I'm programmed to do so, but because I WANT to, and it's something that some of you have forgoteen about in life -- what it means to have a little F-U-N. But if it isn't the mega-million blockbuster that gives you goose-pimples on your goose-pimples - so what? For a couple hours, we pay a couple dollars to have our ears tickled, our eyes dazzled, our heart strings plucked. It's a movie for freakin' cryin' out loud. For some of you it could be the cure to cancer and you'd look at it and say, "Yeah, that's nice, but it should be shorter..." Sad -- so sad.

    As long as there is no fucking NASCAR...

    by Kentucky Colonel

    seriously....what the hell is up with watching a bunch of guys driving around in a circle? I just don't get it. But it was cool to watch the NASCAR god Dale Earnhart die...even as we were watching his in-car camera. What a bunch of morons! And they actually consider themselves ATHLETES! Beer swilling, Winston smoking cousin-fucking rednecks...I betcha we'll never see a one of my African brothers behind the wheel.....and FUCK Larry the Cable Prick. I never got that shit either. Ron White, though, fucking rocks!!!!

    Oh FUCK!

    by Kentucky Colonel

    I didn't notice that the NASCAR is right up front! (NASCAR car is a bit redundant, n'est ce pas?) I'll see it of course, but I suspect I might just hate it afterward. But as someone above said...PIXAR does have a mulligan coming it's way...

    awful premise..but it will be good

    by FleshMachine

    pixar has done no wrong yet...but the thing is that everything they've anthropamorphized so far are things that already had the form of something "alive". the toys had eys and arms and legs and mouths and just "came alive". same with fish and bugs...they already had the potential. but CARS??? thats just weak...whats next LAMPS?? (oh right "Luxo"...nevermind). but luxo was just a lamp with personality, they didnt add eyes and mouth to him (and didnt need to!). i dunno...it seems like a really weak idea..it just doesnt fit in with everything else teyve done...this feels more like a pixar ripoff than pixar. like they had nothing better?? what about a pixar ALIEN MOVIE!! that would be awsome. or a BIRD OR REPTILE MOVIE! or how about another "human" movie like incredibles! i dunno...cars..yeah ill see it and im sure it will end up alright...but this is the first time pixar had made me think "gee i dunno about this...kinda weak."
