Go Speed Racer, go!

For those that aren't in the know, (hey, that's what we're here for!), the 60s cult classic Japanese cartoon Speed Racer has been adapted to a live action flick starring Emile Hirsch, Matthew Fox, Christina Ricci, John Goodman, and Susan Sarandon. Watch for it to hit the big screen on May 9.

With an expected blockbuster, you can certainly bet that there will be toys to go along with it! Mattel has given Barbie and Ken a Trixie and Speed make-over. These guys will be up for grabs sometime in March, but are available for pre-order on Barbie's website and Toys R Us.

Check out the movie's official site to see trailers, videos of press junkets, photos, catch up on any news, download a podcast, and see who else is involved in bringing the world of Speed to life.
