Are Lightning McQueen's racing days over?
It's looking grim in the new trailer for "Cars 3." As seen in previous trailers, Lightning (Owen Wilson) suffers a brutal crash in a race — and he's already in the twilight of this career. He has to rely on trainer Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) to whip him back into shape, but the world of racing has changed and it favors sleek, new cars with advanced technology like Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer).
Can Lightning keep up? Can he tap into the passion that he had in the beginning of his career? Can he discover the joy of racing again?"Cars 3" feels more like a traditional, underdog sports movie (think "Rudy" or "Mighty Ducks" or "Karate Kid"). The story is the driver here, and there's much less hokey humor than in the previous "Cars" films. That may be a good thing.
"Cars 3" opens in theaters June 16.
