Emile Hirsch

Speed Racer (Emile Hirsch) is a teenage boy who always dreamed of living life in the fast lane. Racing is in his blood. His brother, record-breaking driver Rex Racer (Scott Porter ? Prom Night, Music & Lyrics) was tragically killed when Speed was just a young boy, during the treacherous Casa Cristo cross-country rally race; notorious for intense driving and foul play.

Now, Speed is taking the racing world by storm with his finely tuned, artistic driving skills. His weapon of choice is the beautifully crafted, lightning-fast ?Mach 5? race car, designed by his father. But when the power-hungry, maniacal Mr.

Royalton (Roger Allam ? V For Vendetta, A Cock And Bull Story), owner of the evil conglomerate Royalton Industries, offers Speed a lucrative racing contract, Speed declines, believing in the art of the race over financial gain, and remains loyal to the family business. Royalton reveals that some of the biggest races are being fixed by a handful of ruthless moguls who manipulate the top drivers to boost profits and if Speed won?t drive for Royalton, he will see to it that the Mach 5 never crosses another finish line again.

Teaming up with his girlfriend Trixie (Christina Ricci), his one-time rival, enigmatic Racer X (Matthew Fox) and shifty Japanese racer Taejo Togokhan (Rain), Speed must win the Casa Cristo to expose Royalton?s treacherous stranglehold on the racing world.

Will Speed overcome Royalton?s wrath, fulfil his brother?s legacy and save the future of racing?

Heart thumping and spectacular pedal to the metal action for young boys that magically brings to life the wonderful world of comic strip adventures, Speed Racer is the ultimate boy-racer hero!
