Yes it is going to be a "b" type movie by the looks of it, but who knows it could be good. Sometimes the trailers make a movie look dumb but it turns out to be a sleeper.

This movie will absolutely bring more attention to the GD WRX's and STI's. I dont ever remember seeing or hearing about a big movie featuring a WRX/STI as the focal point of the movie. It WILL make people want one that never would have considered one before.

There are actually 3 red WRX's that are in the movie, all identical, and one was coverted to rear drive only for burnouts. The movie might be good, might not, but there is a lot of stunt driving featuring the WRX so that to me will be worth seeing it.

Born to Race 2011 - YouTube

Born to race 2 full movie - YouTube

Two movies where a Subaru was the primary vehicle for a majority. There will be no real impact on the level of demand for these cars because of this movie. Guaranteed.

that is a fast and furious type movie, this new movie with the red WRX's is more like an "italian job" type plot, a Heist flick, where the car takes on the personality, that boosted interest in mini coopers. Something tells me the timing of this movie is going to have a big Impact on the Subaru WRX/STI market. Anyway I disagree a movie of this scale will not have any effect especially if it is successful.

I only vaguely remember the born to race movie now that you mentioned it.

Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Sony, TriStar Pictures and Working Title Films aren't exactly 'B' movie material. These are some big-hitters. Either way I'll be going to see it!
