The first 30 seconds of this trailer may be the finest trailer ever!!!
But, as my 5 year old pointed out.... "THERE's a 6. That's NOT the MACH 5!" Back this up.... You've made a LIVE action SPEED RACER MOVIE, the first one. And wanted to be a living version of the cartoon, groundbreaking if not for the visual style of the Flintsdtones movies, but you'll fly in the face of that... You'll even cast John Goodman!!! You take all that risk, but we're not getting the Mach 5????? It looks like Speed gets a "BETTER" Car in this movie, The Mach 6 maybe????
A geeky conversation may go like this; "Which car would you want in a race? The Mach 5, Tracks from transformers, Bumblebee, or K.I.T.T?" "Bumblebee from the Bay movie?" "Yea, yea, that one..." The underlying questionis, which car is better than the Mach 5? BUT, in SPEED RACER, no car is supposed to be bettter than the Mach 5.
So if you made Doctor Who, would The Doctor accept a replacement for The Tardis?????????
So if you made Star Wars, would Han Solo accept a replacement for Millenium Falcon?????????
Roy Rogers wouldn't replace Trigger!
Roy Rogers would have made a better Speed Racer movie.....
HOW THE HELL COULD YOU!??!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I apologize, but this trailer called for a tantrum!
