USA Today prints 8 photos; Entertainment Tonight to show trailer
The USA Today newspaper has published eight new frames from the live-action Speed Racer film adaptation directed by Andy and Larry Wachowski (The Matrix, V for Vendetta film). The project retells the story of Mach Go Go Go, Tatsunoko Production's classic 1967-1968 car-racing anime television series. The paper quotes producer Joel Silver, "The effects are beyond belief. We called it 'car fu,' because it was like kung fu with the cars." The American television program Entertainment Tonight will premiere the trailer for the film in its December 6 episode. The film stars Emile Hirsch in the title role and Christina Ricci as his girlfriend Trixie.
