SPEED RACER poster jets down the intertubes and crashes into your eyeballs!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Don't know exactly what I think about this project. I really like the look of the live-action stuff and the CG stuff looks cartoony, but I can't fault them for making a cartoony adaptation of... well, a cartoon. The visuals seemed tripped out beyond belief, no doubt. And here's the teaser poster (click it to get a bigger version)!

    Boring poster, but awesome trailer

    by Live.

    This poster is plain, which is strange considering how amazingly kinetic and wild the trailer was.<p> I have no idea how it'll do at the boxoffice. It looks incredible, but the competition in May will be fierce.

    This poster looks like a poster for a Mach 5 toy car or replica model. I want this movie to be awesome, just because it comes out on my birthday. Other awesome movies that have come out on May 9th include Anaconda. SAY what you will Anaconda was awesome.

  • Dec. 18, 2007, 1:05 p.m. CST

    very iffy

    by crweb

    Very much on the fence with this. With just the trailer to go on, looks like some of the writting and acting is way too serious for the subject matter (that of a cartoon). I really had hoped they would keep the mile a minuet dialog like in the show. Thought the bullet time in the trailer was out of place. Seems like they are saying, remember us, we're the Matrix guys, so here's some more Matrix stuff. If I want to see Matrix stuff I'll watch The Matrix. Like they can't move beyond Matrix or can't shake it's aftermath.

    the typography

    by the_stranger

    the poster itself and the speed logo is nice but i agree the ugly red font is horrible, but its the same one they used in the trailer. they need to hire a better designer.

    Thunderbirds Are Go!

    by bobinnova

    The more images I see of this movie, the more I see similarities to that 2004 abortion "Thunderbirds" with Bill Paxton and Ben Kingsley. "Thunderbirds are Go 2004", "Speed Racer is Go 2008" UGH! The Wachowskis should have taken the other pill

    The last dime you gave someone a roundhouse kick to the jaw, didn't they spin around in the air like a horizontal cycone before crumpling to a heap on the ground? Cuz if not, you're doing it incorrectly. They should always spin at least 4-5 times before crumpling. I can get 8-9, cuz I'm an AWESOME face-kicker. I practice on children and elderly people.

    by CreasyBear

    It's not going to get much nostalgia box office. I have no recollection of this cartoon, and I ain't no spring chicken. My cartoon memories start at G.I. Joe and Transformers. This Speed Racer shit makes even me feel young, this coming from someone who remembers the days when you had to walk over to the TV to change to one of the other three stations (including PBS). Then again, I wasn't alive when the Robin Hood legend was started, but they keep making movies of that, so whatever.

    The poster is consistent with the trailer

    by smackfu

    In that from a graphic design standpoint, they are a vomit of clash. Visually, the movie looks very off-putting. Seeing as it's Christmas time, the look of the movie reminds me Santa's village at the mall. Saturated with shiny things, candy colors and blinking lights, all for the purpose of distracting you from noticing that Santa is an unshowered transient who reeks of whisky and has a semi-erection.

    And yes, that is not a good thing. I do hope he keeps the helmet off and dies quickly although. Hey always hope. :)

    The Matrix Trilogy OWNS your asses!

    by Johnno

    The wachowskis shouldn't apologize to you! It's YOU that oughta be apologizing to them for being a douchebag! And then YOu should apologize to everyone here for being annoying enough to over and over again let everyone online know about your dochebaggery for hating the Matrix sequels! And then as an act of repentence, you must blow the dicks of the Wachowski BROTHERS, because they both still have 'em and this transexual stuff is apparently nothing mroe than some gossipy rumour exposing you for the woman you are and wish you could be! BWAHAHAHAHA<br><br>But same pointless jokes and stuff aside, that poster image is indeed classified under 'Meh' but if I've gotta see it's 3D-ness to appreciate it, then okay, I'll withold judgment... 3D can do wondorous things!

    Flip it upside down, then double-reverse the image of the car and voila!

    saw this poster at Metreon last night

    The actual theater poster is in 3D. Believe me, it makes all the difference. The static image above does not at all capture the majesty of this poster.

    In the trailer

    I liked the woman sauntering towards the camera with her neon pink cape/scarf blowing perpendicular to her. Nice image. That's it, though.

    Special Cameras?

    by Autodidact

    I've read around that the Wachowski siblings are using some kind of special filming equipment\technique that has the entire field of vision in perfect focus at all times, like TV animation. From the look of the poster and the HD trailer it seems like the movie will be hyper-textured, with every surface showing visible detail. This might turn out to be the killer app for HD-DVD, same way The Matrix was for regular DVD back in late 99, early 2000. Does anyone have any links or information about that?

    The Wachowski's should'nt apologize for the Matrix sequels

    by Stalkeye

    instead they should be handing out refund checks for those who wasted over 4 hours of this over pretentous shit. What seemed to be a potentually great franchise turned into a major disapointment especially Revolution. Sowwies!

    That logo looks like a sign for a burger joint

    by ELGordo

    I'm sorry but I have no faith in this project. Horrible horrible trailer and this is the sort of film that will baffle audiences and drive them away.
