Speed Racer trailer!

Dec. 6, 2007by: Ben Barna

This morning you got the first pics of the new SPEED RACER movie, and now here comes the trailer, which debuted on Entertainment Tonight, well, tonight. What can I say about this? To quote my friend George after watching it it definitely has its own look. I couldnt have put it better myself, George. I think the Wachowskis have outdone themselves on this one. Any other director(s) would have turned this into a generic big budget CG extravaganza (sadly, those have become generic) but the Wachowskis have gone out of their way to create something utterly unique, a singular vision you might say. Therell be a lot of complaints that this thing looks too much like a video game, but at least there are real people in it. Have you seen BEOWULF? Now that looks like a videogame. Check out the trailer HERE and SPEED RACER on May 9th.
Extra Tidbit: In 2004 Vince Vaughn tried to get this project going, with himself as Racer X.

I wouldn't call the cartoon a serious work of art. Any "bad american filmmaking" techniques won't stop this from making money with family audiences.

You people talking about this like it's a hacked up version a Kirosawa or Scorcese project need to lighten up a little.

Looks like Dick Tracy

The only "live-action anime" I've seen that has yet worked was Casshern. I'll probably see this on a slow weekend, but I'm already cringing.

I had no idea that people cared so much about Speed Racer. Always liked the cartoon but I think that I will wait for Showtime. Until then, have fun ripping on it you sour pusses.

This reminds me of Inspector Gadget with Matthew Broderick or Spy Kids.

I just don't know...

The Racer X costume looks terrible. I wish they hadn't took it so literally, and the only visuals that I liked was literally the end, with Matthew Fox cast in shadow... This film is obviously aimed at the children's market, but I don't think its going to work. That Racer X catching the punch shot is awful, needs a hell of a lot of work in reshoots!!

Goldenarmz:

"You gathered all that from a 2 min trailer? wow."

Yes. Did you not watch the trailer? It was just as I said: bad acting, bad writing, bad lighting, bad filmmaking. And that whole comment was really all about differentiating the japanese anime from the american-made movie.

In a 2 minute trailer, you'd think they'd showcase some of the BETTER stuff of the production; you know, to get people to WANT to see it. But I have this wierd feeling that most of us on here arent

But that's totally just ME. If you dig the trailer and that "style" (?) of filmmaking, then more power to ya.

And in defense of that (admittedly) poorly-written and very misunderstood "american audiences" mention, im guessing that that poster was talking about HOLLYWOOD films in general (which i can agree with). Hollywood films are made primarily for money (there are some exceptions though) and although i dont know where the whole "brainwashing" thing came from, i think it was just a figure of speech.

I don't get it

I never liked the cartoon but I gave the trailer a chance. This movie is going to be either a love or hate. I don't think there will be any in between. As I watched the trailer another cult movie came to mind, Aeon Flux. Both have their following but neither was or will be a big hit. Why not take out animation and just make it an action flick? It will never have the feel of the cartoon so don't try to make it the cartoon. The Flintstones, Aeon Flux, Transformers, Speed Racer, various

Really?

"This is a hollywood film, made by americans. You obviously dont GET that. We are talking about Speed Racer... THE MOVIE, an american production... made my americans... from america. The original source material being from japan has nothing to do with the bad acting, bad writing, bad lighting, bad filmmaking altogether, production value (or lack thereof), of this film.

Speed Racer was never a favorite cartoon of mine, and I wasn't excited to hear this movie was being made. Now after seeing the trailer I feel the same way. I really don't even get why someone would bother with a live action version. Looks like the target audience is about 6 to 12 years old anyway, so maybe the youngins will like it.

Effects vs all else?

Again, I love the fact that the trailer has energy and hell, the cheesey lines and insane techno music don't bother me. I am a fan of the original so this does seem to get the feeling right, but having watched the trailer again, I failed to see any tongue in cheekness and am still very distracted by how poorly the live actors are intergrated with the CGI everything else. I do hope that's just because it's an early trailer and the film itself will look better, or else, why bother making a

Again though, they need more than two good films (Bound = amazing The Matrix (first one)= fun but not nearly as good as the hype it had)

"Outdone themselves"?

This trailer is freaking TERRIBLE! They've completely lost any plot they may have had after the second Matrix (yes, I liked Reloaded). This movie looks like a joke. And this comes from a huge fan of the cartoon who used to watch it every Saturday. Boooooooo.

WIKID!

I don't understand all the rants. This trailer looks pretty true to the cartoon.
Are you guys expecting something like "Dark knight" or "Hellboy"???
Get over your know it all judgement and enjoy the movie like you've enjoyed the cartoon.

yikes

two things
what the hell is with Trixy? Looks kinda off doesnt she? Secondly, poor chim chim (monkey) is it any wonder he lashed out on set and got punched in the head? I know the Wachowskis are going 4 realism but thats the time they should used CG as opposed to making the movie look like dr. seuss bizarro nascar racing.

First of all, this movie looks like crap. Now, for my rant, to negrodiablo, what is your problem. It's painfully obvious that you hate American movies, or american people, or something, but theres no need to go and say it so rudely. Americans have made many amazing movies, and now because of this piece of crap, we're terrible at making movies and we're brainwashed? I'm sorry, but you're a little full of yourself. Not everything made can be great, so just back down, I've got nothing against you

well....

...all I can say is, it doesn't look great. To each his own of course but it seems unlikely this will be a smash hit in any sense. We'll see soon enough I suppose.

I really dont understand your logic. So, the series this film is based off of was "cotton candy bubblegum crap," therefore, this film has the privilege of going un-dissed for IT'S cotton candy bubblegum crapiness? well, ignore us and enjoy your crappy movie.

This is a hollywood film, made by americans. You obviously dont GET that. We are talking about Speed Racer... THE MOVIE, an american production... made my americans... from america. The original source material being from japan has nothing to do with the bad acting, bad writing, bad lighting, bad filmmaking altogether, production value (or lack thereof), of this film.


"It looks like what it should look like"

So i guess we can throw originality out the window. If you're gonna adapt animation into live action, dont make it cartoony. otherwise, we'd all be better off watching the original animation.

I havent watched a single episode of speed racer, and IM even offended. Offended that they can display such crap as an IMPROVEMENT on the original. Isnt that what adaptation is all about, bring a work to a new medium in hopes of IMPROVING it? What a waste.

If you're here to invalidate others' opinions, be prepared to be quoted, and "stricken" back.

It looks like what it should look like, and should be interesting, though I do think the racing could look a whole lot better.

However, I will not see this movie in theaters. For one, even though it might be tongue-in-cheek, the dialogue and acting looks just like Dick Tracy (over-the-top and stupid).

I feel that they're basically in the same league as George Lucas, but that's just my opinion.
In the end, it's made for the kids (I think) and I'm sure they'll enjoy it, but I don't know why this should be considered a blockbuster anyways.

I am not surprised there are people on this site willing to put down 11$ to see this overly Phony Bullsh*t. American movie audiences is too brainwashed by CRAP. what the hell was that!? Did you see the Horrible fighting in this trailer?! The fighting looked so bad and speed racers father spinning that guy in the air looked ridiculously FAKE. Some of the cars look pretty yea but we dont need almost everything to be C f'n G! and Emile Hirsch looks HORRIBLE as speed! Im staying away from this

Well, it does look too much like a videogame but I still think this looks pretty unique, intersting, and somewhat exciting. I'll just wait for some reviews before deciding if I see it.

Looks as good as could be expected. Was anyone particularly jazzed to hear the Wachowskis were making Speed Racer anyway?

I for one would like to see the bros. tackle an actual comic franchise; they could make an awesome Daredevil relaunch, for instance. Or on the DC end, a Flash or Green Lantern flick. That would be rad. They probably wouldn't since they wouldn't have total control over any existing property. If the studio heads were smart, they'd give them a comic franchise and let them

Cool

My Dad introduced me to SpeedRacer when I was little. It was his favorite cartoon as kid, and we would watch it together. It was really great. This, to me, captures the cartoon pefectly. It looks great imo. Was everyone expecting a dark, violent film based off SpeedRacer?

UNIQUE

The trailer certainly looks unique. Although I tend to worry that one half of the Wachowskis is a bit too flamboyant and tends to lean towards making things look a bit like "Batman & Robin" at times. Not a big fan of that sort of style.

Although, it would have been worse if perennially tired looking Vince Vaughn would have been cast as Racer X. Wow, that would have been a tragedy of apocalyptic proportions!!!

First of all, why does everyone always seem to trash the MATRIX trilogy? A flawless masterpiece of three films. I never understand that one. I'll admit I don't know jack about speedracer, but this preview looks like they got it right. Who but the Wachowskis could pull this off? This movie looks like its gonna work.

yup, this fulfilled the promise of those lame stills. even on a pop-art production level the lighting in this looks crap, and overall bot stylized enough. the CG car racing doesn't interest me at all, nor does the techno music mixed with heavy handed family values / bad corporation plot. let the excuses begin... "its based on a cartoon, what did you expect?", "it's for kids!", "its..."... take it easy guys. anyway... I'm just commenting on the trailer, it does nothing for me, and if I go based

Vendetta was surprisingly better then expected, but watching it again, you see how much better it could have been. and yes, they made a movie and I didn't so I guess my opinion doesn't count... right?

I just don't know why the wachowskis are on this.... although they are pretty much 9 year olds anyways.

I've never been a fan of speed racer, nor have i been a hater. Actually, ive never seen an episode in my entire life. So, as an unbiased opinion... this looks retarded.

the lines are cheesy, the look is ugly and cartoony (yeah, i get how its based off an anime, but anime looks cartoony for a reason... ITS ANIME), and the cg looks like pure crap. looks like they pulled it straight out of 'Cars.' How can anyone defend this ugly piece of shit?

Yes, Beowulf looked like a videogame, something I am entirely OK with because videogames do not have real people, so why is that a problem for it to look that why? With that, this film looks like it has enegry galore and will be interesting, if my eyes don't explode from the odd fitting CGI/ live action mix. I do pray this is good, because V For Vendetta and the last two Matrix sequels made me want to kill myself. (Yeah, that's right, fuck V for Vendetta)

sorry friends and neighbours, i gotta go against the grain here, i think it has an awesome look to it, and should be quite a thrill ride. its based on anime, and keeping that look with real people is cool. remember, these guys did "bound", they know a thing or two about film. didnt everyone steal their matrix "bullet time" look? they are innovators, guaran effin teed the blur motion lok gets adopted by some big ass corporation looking to advertise to the youth, i.e. "hip" market. 2 hours of

Yeah...

Sure, Ben, it looks like Beowulf. And Beowulf looked like a video game. With the exception that parts of Beowulf looked beautifully real instead of the canned CG crap that I saw in this trailer. Oh, yeah, and the trailers for Beowulf made me want to actually see the film because it looked badass, as opposed to this festering pile of dog snot that made me want to sit on a howitzer and yell "fire for effect" rather than ever be forced to see this shitbug of an lame-ass idea. Dude, having real

Dude, having real people in this film doesn't make it look any less like the Wachowskis are fumbling this project big time.

Beowulf was a decent flick, sorry if you can't get over the CG actors...

I'm not gonna go apeshit about the trailer, but it is engaging and i really don't see why so many people get horrified by the looks of it.

Don't Get the Problem

HAVE YOU SEEN THE ORIGINAL SERIES???
This just basically is a live anime.
Sure the dialogue is a little cheesy but I really think going for something differant is a good thing here.

Sure it may suck balls in the end but I'm willing to give it a try.

Btw, I was pissed that they interupeted one of my favorite tv theme songs with that techno crap.

Looks Alright

I highly doubt this will be anything like Spy Kids. If the guys who were behind Matrix1, and V for Vendetta are involved, then its gotta be fun.
