Apparently there is a brand new Speed Racer trailer playing in front of 10,000 B.C., but unfortunately I haven't seen it yet because I'm in Austin, TX for SXSW. While that trailer is still awaiting its online debut, Warner Brothers has launched two new international trailers for the summer movie. You need to see these - I am excited as HELL for this. I know I may be alone and I know this may create controversy, but it's designed to look like a video game and I think it's going to kick some serious ass. The Wachowski's are back and they're going to blow your mind again with Speed Racer, I guarantee.
I'd love to talk A LOT more about this, but I'll save my subjective statements until we have the official domestic trailer released. Stay tuned for more on that this week when that trailer hits.

I think people are completely missing the point with this movie - it's supposed to look like a video game, or more specifically, an animated movie. It's a visual style that The Wachowski's are inventing. Did anyone think bullet time was a real visual style for movies before The Matrix? I think not, and when you think that this is The Wachowski's, then you might realize that this will be as awesome as I'm expecting.
