You've probably already seen the pics, so now it's time to enjoy the first trailer for one of this summer's most anticipated films, Speed Racer. Based on the classic 1960s cartoon, Speed Racer was brought back to life on the big screen by those Matrix wizards, the Wachowski Brothers. And whether you agree with what they've done or not, guaranteed you haven't seen anything like this before. Bursting with vibrant colors, and featuring scenes that look absolutely spectacular to watch (you'll need to see this one in the theater), Speed Racer stars Emile Hirsch as the aspiring race car driver Speed, who, with help from his family (Mom and Pops played by Susan Sarandon and John Goodman), his girlfriend Trixie (Christina Ricci) and a little chimp named Chim Chim, builds the unstoppable Mach 5 and teams with the mysterious Racer X (Matthew Fox) to win the death-defying, cross-country rally known as The Crucible in order to save his family's business and beat the evil Royalton at his own game. You can check out the trailer up top, or head on over to Moviefone to see it in glorious HD. Additionally, we've included a gallery of still photos below. Speed Racer is set to crash its way into theaters on May 9, 2008. %Gallery-11436%
