Overlooked and Underrated Week begins at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Josh Olson introducing the Wachowskis' $120 million live-action version of Tatsuo Yoshida's 52-episode anime series, "Speed Racer," a major critical and commercial flop.

The film underwent 17 years of development, and involved such names as Julien Temple, Gus Van Sant,  Alfonso Cuaron, J.J. Abrams, Vince Vaughan, Johnny Depp and more. Shot largely against Greenscreen at Germany's Babelsberg Studios, the unnecessarily convoluted plot confused kids and bored adults, but its brilliantly realized cinematics are destined to be cited as a milestone in the advancement of filmic storytelling techniques.
