New 'Cars 2' trailer: 'You ready?' 'Is the Popemobile Catholic?'

Posted on

Cars never reached the genius levels of a few other Pixar flicks (like Toy Story, or Toy Story 2… or Toy Story 3), but it was a pretty fun ride all the same. And its sequel, which will hit theaters June 24, looks like it should also be an amusing way to spend two hours. The newest trailer for Cars 2 introduces heroic racecar Lightning McQueen’s new rival, an Italian hot-rod named Francesco, and reveals that Larry the Cable Guy’s Mater has apparently been upgraded from sidekick to lead. It also includes one  awesome joke, which goes a little something like this:

Lightning: “You ready?”

Mater: “Is the Popemobile Catholic?”

Check it out below.
