Very cool, even if it is from ET ;)
The race is on May 9th, '08.
UPDATE - It seems like it must just be a Speedy day. Care of a nice little USA Today article we've now gotten our first official pictures from the Speed Racer film. Check out these two pics, then head over to the article to see the other 6. This movie might just be unlike anything else ever made. It reminds me a bit of Ultraviolet in how totally stylized it is. Very, very interesting.
