This morning, we reported on the release of several photos from the Wachowski Brothers upcoming cartoon adaptation Speed Racer. And now we have the film’s trailer, which hits theaters tomorrow.

Living up to the promise of the photos, the trailer captures the kinetic look of the original Japanese cartoon in live action. From the vibrant colors to the fast dialogue delivery of the businessman haranging Speed to the two glimpses of the Mach 5 flying through the air courtesy of its auto jacks, this looks to be the strongest attempt to translate a stylized comic art style into live action since Dick Tracy. It’s fast becoming one of my most anticpated films of next summer.
