Film buffs are in with a chance to attend the UK premiere of Disney’s much anticipated blockbuster – Cars 2 – and interview the stars on the red carpet as Vue’s official online correspondent for the day. What’s more, the winner’s celebrity interviews will be filmed and posted on the Vue website for their moment of fame!

The star-studded premiere of Cars 2 will take place on 17 July, 2011 at Empire Leicester Square, where the lucky winner will have pole position in the media pen to interview the stars of the film, including John Lasseter, Lewis Hamilton, and Michael Caine, as they walk the red carpet.

The film sees Lightning McQueen set off on an international adventure with his best friend, pickup truck, Mater. The film also sees the return of McQueen’s misfit friends from the first film and promises to be a fun ride for all the family.
