New Movie Releases: ‘Cars 2,’ ‘Bad Teacher’ [VIDEOS]
Another sequel cruises into theaters this weekend by way of Pixar’s ‘Cars 2,’ with Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) back for another fast-paced adventure – this time, at the first-ever World Grand Prix.
Reviews haven’t been too kind for the movie, but given Pixar’s recent successes, ‘Cars 2′ should have no problem taking the number-one spot at the box office.
Also opening this weekend is the more adult-friendly ‘Bad Teacher,’ which stars Cameron Diaz as a recently dumped teacher who does whatever it takes to win the affections of a handsome substitute teacher (Justin Timberlake).
