Theatrical Trailer: "Cars 2"

Across the past few months, I've gradually come to grips with the fact that this is not a good year for Pixar. If you're familiar with the site, you'll know that every single bit of new footage has painted this film as stupid, corny, and actually useless. Cars 2 has abandoned some of the deeper themes that made the first film something of a success, even if it is widely known as the worst in the Pixar catalog. And yet, this trailer forced me to ease up on the hatred a bit, because all of the stupidity and foolishness that Mater's been up to has actually been worked into the plot. There's the bitter truth to the fact that Mater is dumb, and if Pixar has realized that flaw, all the nonsense could just be seen as them embracing it. Is the film suddenly on the top of my list? Of course not, because that song slapped on the end of the trailer is just atrocious. That being said, I've gone from not wanting anything to do with this film to actually being willing to see it.
