Cars 2

Cars 2

Every summer Pixar delights film fans all over the world with their latest release - and this year is no different.

Twelve months ago we enjoyed another adventure with Woody, Buzz and co with Toy Story 3 and this time around it's another sequel as Cars 2 hits the big screen.

Owen Wilson is back as Lightening McQueen, four years after the original burst onto the big screen - while Larry the Cable Guy is also back as Mater.

And they are just two of the all star names on the voice cast as Michael Caine, Emily Mortimer, Jason Isaacs and Eddie Izzard all feature.

Lightning McQueen and the incomparable tow truck Mater take their friendship to exciting new places in "Cars 2" when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world's fastest car.

But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.

Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world.

Adding to the fast-paced fun is a colourful new all-car cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors.

As with many movies Cars 2 has some great cameos - former F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton being one of them.

And in true FemaleFirst fashion we have the first look at Hamilton - who plays himself - in the film.

Cars 2 is released 22nd July.
