Speed Racer featurette
Apr. 15, 2008
Itís a special day when we get a new SPEED RACER
trailer and a now a new SPEED RACER
featurette, which you can see HERE
. This four minute making-of clip features interviews with the actors and producer Joel Silver, all talking about how mind-blowing this movie is going to be, dropping broad teases like ďyouíve never seen anything like this beforeĒ and ďitís going to blow everyone away.Ē Hey, Iím convinced. These are famous people talking, and they donít lie. While the effects in this film are clearly dazzling, whatís really impressed me (and itís apparent in this clip) is the winking humor and one-liners, like when Christina Ricci says Ďcool beans.í The characters appear likeable and tongue-and-cheek, like they arenít taking themselves too seriously. And of course, the Wachowskis are nowhere to be seen, such is their crippling press shyness. I'm insulted. Check out SPEED RACER
on May 9th.
||Yeah, that's right--I used the same picture as Thoo. That's because I'm a lazy f*ck.
