But you type like a 21 year old... LOL

I don't think I'll go see it. The color pallet looks like they're going the "Spy Kids" and "Thunderbirds: the Movie" route. Both of which I loathed. So no... not unless it's later in the summer, and it's a hot day... and I'll go see ANYTHING just to get out of the heat for a while... And it's at the $1.00 flicks.

I will assume you mean that as a compliment??? LOL!!

See I see Matrix type cuts an effects when I see the previews. So far it looks like they kept all the best elements, and moderneized it.

The movie is only projected to do about 18 million this weekend.

Normally that is not a bad opening, but with this being the start of summer movies, 18 million is not very good at all. Ironman made 107 million in the US last week to just give you an idea.

Speed Racer looks like it should have been a DVD release.

Maybe. But the brothers can amaze, and think they will.

But Ironman was not projected to do the numbers it did, so I'd say that film was a runaway hit.

Probably not, but there's always the chance. More likely I'll see at the dollar theater, if anywhere, too.

I grew up on Speed Racer the cartoon
I even got my 7 year old hooked on it
So I'll probably take him to go see it
I know it won't be the same
Still.....

The movie made 20 million this past weekend, about 2 million above theater expectations. However, the movie studio says they were surprised the movie did very poor at the box office.

They spend over 120 million making this movie, my questions is, why would a studio spend so much money making a kids film?

lol, my old GM from United Artists screened the film and said at times he almost got sick from the flashing lights and other bright effects.
