More Eyeball Blistering SPEED RACER Pics!

The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly has gifted us with six new pictures from the Wachowski Brothers’ upcoming adaptation of Speed Racer.

Some folks on the web have complained that the film looks too much like a video game or that the computer effects don’t look realistic. It makes me wonder if those people have ever seen the original Japanese cartoon, because to me, what we’ve seen in two trailers and the previously released photos, indicate that the movie is definitely aping the cartoon’s hyper-realistic look.

Until May 9, when Speed Racer hits theaters, enjoy the following pictures of Emile Hirsch as Speed, Christina Ricci as his girlfriend Trixie and Matthew Fox as Racer X.
