    Speed Racer Live Action Photos/Trailers posted!

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    USA Today has posted an article on the upcoming Live Action Speed Racer movie being produced by the Wachowski brothers. And I must say, the photos are now what you would expect from a Anime adaptation. This looks more like a cross between 'Speed Racer' and the 'Matrix'...

    First look: 'Speed Racer' wheels into live action - USATODAY.com:

    I think it's going to suck and blow. But then again, they are going for a kids movie appeal right?

    RIGHT?

    The artical said that they are trying to appeal to the "Youtube" generation while still entertaining the Baby-Boomers who remember the classic show.

    I tend to agree with Hassun. the pics look nauseatingly bad. I know they are going for the campy 60's throw back motif but c'mon. it looks like early-Schumacher had a threesome with the Wachowski Bros. The only appealing aspect for me is Ricci as Trixie.

    plus, Ji Hoon Jung (Rain) = horrible.
