Two new trailers for the upcoming ‘Speed Racer’ film have been released.
This is the latest movie written from the now infamous Wachowski Brothers -having previously written and directed ‘V for Vendetta’ and, of course , the Matrix trilogy.
The trailers don’t really tell us much about the plot, though we do know it centres on a man determined to win The Crucible – a futuristic cross-country rally race in which his brother previously competed and died. Mostly the clips are about the action and the visuals. Based on the comic/cartoon series the Brothers Wachowski have taken the franchise into the live action realm but, as usual, with a difference. It seems the two have blended live action and CGI animation giving the film a unique comic book/video-game. So far there has been mixed reaction to this idea, but if these trails are anything to go by, we’re in for a treat!
Speed Racer will be released in Ireland 16 May 2008
