Speed Racer pics!

Dec. 6, 2007by: Mike Sampson

The trailer isn't set to premiere until later tonight on Entertainment Tonight (people still watch that show?) or on Friday enclosed with prints of THE GOLDEN COMPASS but this morning USA Today has your first look at eight new pictures from the film. And I can pretty much guarantee you this SPEED RACER is nothing like you imagined. How to describe it? Trippy? Colorful? Boy, I tell you I can't wait to see what's going on in the trailer now. Click any of the pics below to head to the USA Today article to flip through the slideshow and read a short article about the film.

Extra Tidbit: Star Christina Ricci had only ever seen "Speed Racer" in Geico commercials.

Wow, they weren't kidding when they said they wanted to make it cartoony. It may look like a faithful live action version of the source material, but it looks damn hideous.

This looks kind of disastrous, but who knows, maybe the final product will kick ass.

I get it that they are trying to make it super cartoony in homage to the cartoon...but come on! Those pics look shitty as fucking hell!

Wow

I think it looks pretty damn good for the goal that they're aiming for!
Wicked stuff, at least it's something new and inventive from hollywood, rather than some shitty remake/sequel.

I like it

I dont know, it just look so crazy that i love it. And that little kid is awesome, met him a couple times, really good kid. Only thing is Racer X's costume looks a little cheap

Heh I wonder if they are making Hirsch the same height as matt fox. (ie: pic 7) walking on boxes. looks like it might be fun though

I'm really looking forward to this. The Wachowskis are trying something new, at least, and they've only made one bad film so far (I actually liked Revolutions, I just pretend Reloaded never happened) and, really, people were scared of what they'd do with V For Vendetta as well. Plus, Emile Hirsch is a damn good actor.

I'm not sure

This is obviously a kids film but I'm really not sure if this is going to work... Its just far too trippy!

I'll wait and see...

but for now, those images don't really interest me in their own right. I prefer any still from the cartoon to those, but maybe in action, who knows. it'll be someones cup of tea for sure, and that's fine by me. I'm interested none the less...

Ohh God! These look so horrible. Hirsch just does not look like a good fit, nor does this look like anything that will resemble a solid movie.

I don't see what the problem is. every picture looks good. I sense an epic quality and intensity in the races from the two pics of the racer actually racing. but I thought everything was supposed to be in focus at the same time all the time. and there were a few pics that werent that way. either way, i'm looking forward to this. and thank you spaulding, I thought I was the only one that liked Revolutions.

Worthless

Skeptical is no longer an option. This looks absolutely hideous. What the hell were they thinking?

FAIL

This movie looks like how vomit smells. Not everything in the universe translates to film genius.

Just saw the trailer on Spike, and I must say... OMG!! This looks soo... fucking... lame!! Yea, Speed Racer the cartoon was cheese hell, but come on! This looks so bad, it's almost sad really. Hopefully this kills the Wachowski's careers for good.

I WISH I HAD 4 HANDS

So I could give this movie 4 thumbs down. After The Matrix sequels, and the terrible job done trying to save The Invasion, hasn't someone realized that The Wachowski's are hacks?

Holy shit! It's "Mario Kart" on acid! Whether or not that's a good thing remains to be seen.
