Reuters has a video from the Speed Racer press conference that was in Germany yesterday. There is also a short article that gives us more insight into the filming…

June 01 – After much hype and talk, the car from the Wachowski brothers’ new film Speed Racer has been shown to the public in Potsdam, at a news conference with star attendance.

But the latest film from the Wachowski brothers, best known for the ‘Matrix’ movies, won’t be shot in Hollywood but in Potsdam, Germany at the Babelsberg film studios. And it is not an action movie but an hommage to the Japanese comic strip Speed Racer.

The film is based on the classic 1960’s Japanese animated series chronicling the aspirations of a young race car driver as he attempts to obtain glory, with the help of his family and the advanced car created by his father.

But without doubt the real star of the film will be the car, named Mach 5.

Thanks to Latcher from our forums for the great find!

I captured the video and added the caps to the gallery. I also captured the short film Little Red Riding Hood (I’ll upload the video next update) and added those to the gallery as well. Check them out by clicking on the thumbnails below. 🙂
