Speed Racer (2008) Takes the Lead at the Blu-Ray 5000

Warner Home Entertainment released Speed Racer to Blu-ray on May 18, 2010. Lilly and Lana Wachowski directed the film starring Emile Hirsch, Matthew Fox, and Christina Ricci.

‘Speed Racer’ Movie Synopsis

Born to race cars, Speed Racer is aggressive, instinctive, and most of all, fearless. His only real competition is the memory of his brother, whom he idolized, the legendary Rex Racer. His death in a race has left behind a legacy that Speed is driven to fulfill.

His father, Pops Racer, runs the family racing business, and he designed Speed’s thundering Mach 5. When Speed turns down a lucrative, but tempting offer from Royalton Industries, he not only infuriates the company’s maniacal owner, but also uncovers a terrible secret; a handful of ruthless moguls fix some of the biggest races by manipulating the top drivers to boost their profits.

If Speed won’t drive for Royalton, Royalton will see to it that the Mach 5 never crosses another finish line. The only way for Speed to save his family’s business, and the sport he loves, is to beat Royalton at his own game. With the support of his family and his loyal girlfriend, Trixie, Speed teams with his one-time rival – the mysterious Racer X – to win the race that had taken his brother’s life; the death-defying, cross-country rally known as The Crucible.
