The red band trailer for Roger Corman‘s Death Race 2050 is here and my god it’s oozing with Cormanesque throwback goodness. There’s no lack of bad taste throughout the proceedings and even at 90 years old Roger is showing no signs of slowing down when it come’s to producing the vintage style films we’ve become accustomed to bearing the Corman name.
The film stars Starring: Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) and Manu Bennett (The Hobbit) in the highly-anticipated reimagining of the 1975 cult classic, Death Race 2000, voted the greatest B-picture of all time.
The year is 2050, and America is under the control of a maniacal tyrant with fantastic hair, the Chairman of the United Corporations of America. The public has been brainwashed and subdued by the onslaught of virtual reality, and the audience gets a front-seat view of this year’s main event, the Death Race.
A brutal contest pitting the world’s greatest drivers against each other as they compete for points scored by running over pedestrians, the Death Race is America’s greatest and only pastime. In the Death Race, you finish first – or not at all.
Death Race 2050: Available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD on January 17, 2017 from Universal Home Entertainment.
Buckle your seat belts and hit the gas come January 17th. It’s going to be a bumpy ride when Death Race 2050 hits the streets.
