Racer Imax: 'Speed' goes big


The Wachowskis and Warner Bros., whose "Matrix" films and "V for Vendetta" had runs on Imax screens, are reteaming with the giant-screen exhibitor for "Speed Racer."

Imax said Tuesday that a digitally remastered version of the live-action anime adaptation will be simultaneously released to Imax and conventional theaters May 9.

Based on the 1960s Japanese series created by Tatsuo Yoshida, "Speed Racer" was written and directed by Andy and Larry Wachowski.
