Warner Bros. has announced that its live action Speed Racer feature (see 'Wachowskis to Helm Live Action Speed Racer') will open on May 9, 2008.  Warner Bros. also announced that the film will open the same day in most international markets, making the premiere a global one. 


That date is two weeks earlier than the date announced previously.  Speed Racer will now premiere one week after Iron Man.
