If you've been to the theatre in the past week or so, you've seen at least half of this on the First Look.
The rest of it is ... well, probably most of the movie. For a movie full of such eye-blowing visuals, you would think they'd hold back a little. Hopefully, this is just the tip of the iceberg, and Speed Racer fans will be stunned anew.
I confess, the trailers and featurette are enough for me. It certainly is pretty -- the world of the future that I long to live in -- but it just doesn't grab me otherwise. I feel terribly out of touch and I shouldn't admit it, but my first thought upon seeing Matthew Fox's racing gear was "Oh, he's Scottish." At least I know the plot, now. I am still amazed they managed to snag Susan Sarandon for this. It has to be pretty cool if she's involved, right? We will find out soon enough. Speed Racer comes to the theatres on May 9th, 2008.
