Speed Racer Has Actual Characters!

The full-length trailer for the Wachowskis' Speed Racer showcases more character development for Speed and Christina Ricci's Trixie. It also shows off some of the cool weapons and gadgets the Mach 5 will deploy on its way to drag-strip victory and unraveling an evil anti-fairness conspiracy. Most importantly, it gives us our first look at the character we've all been waiting to see... Chim-Chim, Speed's monkey sidekick. In general, the trailer makes Speed Racer look just a hair less manic, and possibly more fun, than earlier versions.
