It’s heeeeeeeeeeeere. That’s right, the Wachowski Brothers’ “Speed Racer” has gotten itself a trailer and it’s now available for your viewing pleasure over at AOL Movies by clicking here, or head below to see it now. You have to see this thing in HD to appreciate all the green screen work. And oh yeah, if you have an HD monitor, that’ll work even better. Damn it looks purty. Weird as hell, but purty.
The masterminds behind the ‘Matrix’ bring the beloved ’60s anime cartoon to life on the big screen. Forget the bleak Neo-centric vision of the future; this is more Andy Warhol meets the Jetsons. Watch Speed as he battles corruption in the racing industry and his mysterious rival Racer X.
Starring Emile Hirsch, Susan Sarandon, John Goodman, Christina Ricci, Matthew Fox, and directed by Larry Wachowski and Andy Wachowski.
Avoid the speeding ticket May 9th, 2008.
