Speed Racer Vs. the Road Runner

Just in time to tie-in with the brand-new Speed Racer movie, the folks at Time Warner Cable have put together this new ad featuring the Mach 5 in a race with a CGI Road Runner.

My money's on the Road Runner...

actually I don't like how the WB cable rendered the 3D Road Runner model...it looks kinda of scary!
Anyway...where's Wile E.?

I keep thinking Wile E. will end up flying over the finish line at the last minute and be declared the winner. It will be "The Wild Chase" all over again... ;)

Charlie said...

I hate the fact that WB is using The RR as a mascot for Time Warner Cable instead of the actual character. With that mind, I don't think Wile E. will fly up and be declared as the winner.

I tried to see the rest of the story, but I didn't see it on the site.

You know, after this and those "Watch the Frog" WB promos, I've come to the conclusion that the Looney Tunes just don't work in CGI.

I don't know what is worse, this awful new SR film or CGI Road Runner.

I'll take Tatsunoko's Speed Racer rather that the CGI/Live Action Speed Racer that finishes at #2 behind Iron Man this week.

Actually, Speed Racer drops to #3 behind What Happens in Vegas.

The Wachowski bros certainly put a lot of effort into making Speed Racer... the movie overall looked and felt like a cross between anime, a kaleidoscope, that Flintstones movie, a video game and the Dukes of Hazard

Heh. Speed Racer falls to #4 this week. The new Indiana Jones movie is going knock Speed Racer out of the top 5. I guess its sayonara Wachowski Bros that ruins the Matrix sequels.

Indiana Jones may be the #1 movie this week, but Speed Racer will fall to #6 and beyond. Enjoy your lackluster performance in the box office. And once again, sayonara and good riddance for a movie that tries to inspire from the classic anime, but fails to do so.
