A new poster for the Wachowski Brothers’ “Speed Racer”, this one prominently featuring Emile Hirsch as Speed Racer and the character Taejo Togokhan, played by South Korean pop star and actor Rain, aka Jung Ji Hoon, who will soon be doing another movie with the Wachowskis on their “Ninja Assassin” flick. Rain is a big star in Asia,
even in Japan, where this poster comes from, if my familiarity with Japanese writing is any indication. Apparently the poster is Chinese. My Asian language recognition skills blow.
“Speed Racer” opens May 9, 2008.
