USA Today has released eight new photos from The Wachowski’s Speed Racer. When I heard the cast and crew describe how the film looked like “a live action cartoon”, the picture that entered my head looked something like Sin City. But the actual result, seen above, is indescribable.
“The effects are beyond belief. We called it ‘car fu,’ because it was like kung fu with the cars,” Silver says. “We couldn’t have made this movie until right now.”
And there is more photos after the jump. I’m hearing the trailer is not far behind (these photos appear to be screen captures from said trailer). I’m still taking these in and am not sure what to make of them. I think maybe I need to see what it looks like in full motion before I make any judgements, but what do you guys think? Please comment below!
Â Speed Racer is set to hit theaters on May 9th, 2008.
