New “Knight Rider” might not be so bad after all

Well, when NBC recently introduced a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR as the new KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand) in the latest attempt to bring back the “Knight Rider” franchise — a TV movie scheduled to air next month, let’s just say I was underwhelmed. I mean, the original KITT — a modified, black t-top Trans Am — is an icon from my youth. And today’s Mustang just doesn’t look all that camera-friendly, in my opinion.

However, I must admit that this teaser that showed up on NBC recently has me excited. And Will Arnett is the voice of KITT…how awesome is that? And, just from the two words in this clip, he sounds great!

“Knight Rider” (2008) teaser

UPDATED…just saw that the second “Knight Rider” trailer is now on YouTube…

Movie Trailer: “Speed Racer”

“Speed Racer” trailer

As you can see, above is the trailer for the Wachowski brothers-directed “Speed Racer” movie scheduled for release on May 9, 2008.

Now, I loved “Speed Racer” as a kid and I’m not sure what to think of this quasi-live action film version. However, despite what most people think of the final two installments of “The Matrix” trilogy, Andy and Larry Wachowski make films that are visually stunning. And, in that sense, it looks like the Wachowski brothers have succeeded once again.

This movie “looks” incredible…whether or not the film is any good remains to be seen, in my opinion. But the trailer is fun, so check it out.

TWR readers in Boston, look away now!

Since the very sight of the Mooninites from Cartoon Network/Adult Swim’s “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” gets certain people from Boston worked into a panic (because, you know, they couldn’t take the time to actually check out what the devices were BEFORE going apeshit all over town while screaming “they’re bombs! they’re bombs!” and blowing up what essentially were Lite-Brites), I will suggest that those people look away from the this movie trailer for the greatly anticipated “Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters.”


And speaking of that whole ATHF-Boston thing, here is a very funny take on it (includes profanity…very funny profanity)…
