First Look at "Speed Racer"

USA Today has an article with eight pictures of the upcoming Speed Racer live action movie by the Wachowski brothers.


The movie is being done heavily in green screen, as seems to be the trend these days when trying to translate comicbooks and cartoons. But what I’m looking forward to is some over-the-top racing. I mean, stupid crazy over-the-top cartoon racing... involving hopping cars with buzzsaws, if possible!

Producer Joel Silver is not letting me down as he describes some of the crazy racing we can expect from the movie: "We called it ’car fu,’ because it was like kung fu with the cars".


I mean, look at that! It’s the Mach 5 (or is that a Mach 6?) skidding out of a corkscrew track. A corkscrew track! How cool is that? :)


The first official Speed Racer trailer is online...

Looks even more cheesy than I expected, but I still can’t wait to see it. :P
