  1. Dec 7, 2007, 7:53 AM - GO SPEED RACER!!! #1

    I've been chomping at the bit to get a look at how the Wachowski's were going to interpret one of my favorite childhood cartoons, I thought the casting for the movie was perfect and then last night raced home in time to see the first trailer premier on ET, and after watching it for a second time over the internet in HD, all I can say is I'm "OFFICIALLY STOKED" for the another movie coming up in 2008! (right after IRONMAN of course)

    If you haven't had the pleasure yet, you can check it out over here...

    Awesome news!!! I loved that show. Me and my brothers use to watch the cartoon when I was younger. Im really glad they got Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski to direct the movie. They've done some top notch films in the past.:thumbup

    Hmmmmmm...I don't know...

    I was a huge Speed Racer fan growing up and that trailer just made me wince uncomfortably. Some things just don't translate into live action and this may be one of them. I hope I'm wrong.

    Weird take on the cartoon to live action....Looks over dramatic IMO

    I grew up on SR as well and everyone has a different vision and how they would do things, its nice to see something inventive that has what "seems" to be true to the spirit of SR. We shall see.

    I just downloaded the new Speed Racer trailer.
    I loved watching it as a child, I guess we we have to wait and see how the movie turns out.
    I did notice something kind of cool, his Boots!
