From the unbridled minds of Lilly and Lana Wachowski comes their phantasmagorical tour de force about cars, commerce, and family. Adapting Tetsuo Yoshida’s manga and anime of the same name, Speed Racer is the story of the Racer family and their son Speed’s journey to restore his family’s name after oldest son Rex gets caught up in a web of corruption involving Royalton Industries and its CEO, Arnold Royalton. With the help of the enigmatic Racer X, Speed not only fights to become the finest race car driver the world has ever seen, but also for the artform of racing itself.
