Premiere of Film "Speed Racer" to be Held in Tokyo

2008/04/17 Source

The premiere of "Speed Racer", a film by the Wachowski brothers in which singer Rain makes his Hollywood film debut, will be held in June.

The film premiere, to be held at the Tokyo Dome on June 25, will invite 35,000 audience members. The film will be screened on the world's largest 37 meter-by-17.5 meter screen. Word is out that the Wachowski brothers are preparing to submit an application to the Guinness Book of World Records requesting the screen be included in the book's latest edition.

When the premiere of the film "Pearl Harbor" was held at the Tokyo Dome in 2001, 30,000 audience members watched the film on the then-largest movie screen of 35 meters-by-14.5 meters.

Speed Racer is the first film to be directed by the celebrated "Matrix" creators in five years. The film is based on a Japanese animated film entitled "Mach Go Go Go". The story revolves around a young car racer who dreams of glory and success.

Speed Racer also features g.o.d member Park Jun-hyung. The film will open in theaters nationwide in Korea on May 8 and in Japan on July 5.
