Movie Prediction

The Mach 5 is going to be blown up in some kind of spectacular crash, presumably due to badguy sabotage.

This prediction is based on frame-by-frame viewing of the trailer, revealing that while the Mach 5 is recognizable and present (as in the icon above) about half of the race footage has Speed driving a single-seat "more suped-uppier" vehicle emblazoned with a 6 on the side instead of a 5. Presumably the Mach 6 is what he drives in the climactic "big race" at the end.

Also, that's how Hollywood thinks.

-The Gneech

EDIT: I wouldn't care really, except that the Mach 5 is the star of the show. Speed, Trixie, et al. (with the possible exception of Racer X) are all just people who also happen to be in it. You'd think the Whatsahoosis Brothers of all people would get that.

Yes, because the classics can always be improved by Hollywood thinking.

And really, Mach 6 just doesn't roll off the tongue like Mach 5.

So lets see..... think like a holywood writer

We have this racer with awesome potential... he's sabotaged and crashes, loosing his confidence and not wanting to race again. Some plot device (tm) intervenes and he has to for some reason, after much angst he races in this new more powerful car, narrowly beating the bad guy and saving the day..... sounds kinda holywood... stick a love scene in there and you're done.

All you need is a previous movie and a photocopier and you have your plot.


.... I hope I'm being too cynical I really do.

Makes perfect sense to me. So, should we go looking for the writers who wrote the script out on the picket line, so we can give them a grand whooping?

Cool would be if they did it backwards - it's the Mach *6* that he crashes, and the Mach *5* is pulled out of mothballs.

That would be cool. :) But I don't think it's what's likely to happen. ;)

Or the Speed goes to work for the big evil for a while getting the super cool version of his own car in the process, but when he works out that they are evil (naturaly as is the car) he goes back to his family and the Mach 5...

Hehehe...Camaro concept. All he really needed in the first place was a new paint job and some interior work.

Watching the trailer, I couldn't help but think that some of the races reminded me of MegaRace ;)

Hollywood did worse than the very worse Rule 34 upon Inspector Gadget :P
