DEATH RACE 2000
50 years after Death Race 2000
“Legendary filmmaking icon, Roger Corman, is back with his most outrageous film yet in this sensational, action-packed and darkly humorous reboot of the original Death Race 2000! It’s the year 2050 and America is controlled by an all-powerful corporate government ruled by The Chairman (Malcolm McDowell). The masses have been brainwashed with violent virtual-reality entertainment. The event of the year is the Death Race, in which a motley crew of violent drivers compete in a cross-country road race, scoring points for shamelessly running people over and driving each other off the road. The reigning champion and fan favorite, Frankenstein (Manu Bennett), who’s half-man half-machine, wants to take the crown, but his rebel spy co-pilot threatens his legacy.”
This new over-the-top reboot of Death Race is just crazy kitsch! I don’t really like it, I may still give it a try though if only because it kind of reminds me of Wacky Races, not sure yet… And You?
The release date of Death Race 2050 is set to January 17, 2017.
