Snake and Mongoose is a drag racing movie coming out on September 6th, and I can promise you now it will be the best drag racing movie of the summer. Mostly I can promise that because it is the only drag racing movie this summer, but it actually doesn't look half bad.

The film tells the story of Don "The Snake" Prudhomme and Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen, two drag racers who started a rivalry back in the 1960s. Perhaps more importantly though, is the fact that they were the ones to introduce Mattel and Hot Wheels to sponsorship in drag racing. Sure, the movie may not have the budget of Rush, but drag racing has never had the money like Formula One has.

I, for one, will be watching for the multitudes of moustaches.

H/t to McNewbie!
