After the Matrix trilogy and V for Vendetta, Larry and Andy Wachowski decided to adapt the Japanese cartoon Speed Racer to the big screen. The movie had $80 million worth of marketing behind it from such partners as LEGO, Mattel and McDonald’s, among others.

However, the movie received reviews that were indifferent at best, and The New Yorker’s Anthony Lane said that it was "of no conceivable interest to anyone over the age of ten." The movie opened at number three its first weekend, a huge disappointment given its enormous budget, and quietly faded from there.
