Today we are graced with a new international trailer for Speed Racer. This trailer nicely slots alongside the other trailers we have got. All 300 of them. Before we have been treated to lots of colourful flipping cars, a monkey and Christina Ricci. However, this time we have been given LOTS of colourful flipping cars, no monkey, 1 second of Christina Ricci and a bit more dialogue explaining the story. You know a movie is going to have amazing action and special effects when the lead actress, whom they have paid millions, is only in the trailer for 1 second. Warner Brothers have also made a risky marketing move by not showing Chim Chim the monkey, as I hear approval rates of monkeys internationally has risen 43% since last November.
Check the trailer out below!
Now after watching that amazing colourfest you think to yourself, ‘Hmm…I do believe I have heard the music that starts around the 1:33 mark before’, then you would be correct. It is called ‘Birthright’ by Celldweller and is the ‘latest thing’ regarding movie trailer music. It has been on nearly all of the Speed Racer trailers, and a couple of Iron Man ones too. As Celldweller are as cool as the movies their music promotes, they are giving everyone a free download of the MP3, which you can get by clicking here.
