The trailer for the new Wachowski's film "Speed Racer" is out.
You can view it here:
My initial reaction was, "uh......OK. Should I drop acid before I walk into the theater or is there some point in the film where the peak will coincide with the crazy CGI and make it all wonderful?"
I dont know about this. I had high hopes that this was going to be a fantastic film, but I am starting to get the feeling that this movie is going to be a total bomb.
The Wachowski's are taking a big leap in the idea of using virtual sets and lots of CGI to help tell their story. They've never been afraid of technology, but at what cost, guys? The story has to be solid. The script has to be believable.
And we ARE talking about a badly animated Japanese cartoon, here. Granted, it was something I watched a lot when I was a kid and this nostalgia is something Hollywood loves to exploit as much as possible, but if the script is crap, its just going to be a very nice looking crappy movie.
I'd love to hear some opinions about the trailer and the look of the film. Please comment and let me know what you all think.
