Speed Racer

I've just watched the Speed Racer movie trailer a few times over... and I'm not sure what to think of it.

It kinda reminds me of the Dick Tracy movie (the garish colors) and the racing looks a lot like the Wipeout video game - but the characters and vehicles appear to be true to their source material.

I often wonder how these movies get made. I mean, Speed Racer was an okay cartoon show, but to sink so much money into remaking it for the big screen seems rather odd. Maybe the Wachowski brothers saw an opportunity to tell a story that needed to be told in this Tatsuo Yoshida animated series.

I guess I'll have to wait until May 2008 to find out.
