Hey guys, Jana here,
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment presents Roger Corman’s ‘Death Race 2050‘ on a multitude of home video options January 17, 2017. You can pick your media from Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD, and enjoy this balls-to-the-wall, full-throttle mayhem in all it’s splendor.
This reboot takes a beautiful pleasure in the bloody excesses you are faced with at every turn. You better be ready for anything when you pop this disc into your player, this is not just a race to find out who’s the best on wheels, this is a perverse game where the innocent bystander is the target and each of the larger-than-life drivers are awarded points for gleefully running down the pedestrians, the more violent and wicked the death is, the more points they get.
The all-powerful corporate government run by The Chairman (Malcolm McDowell) brainwashes the masses while fan favorite and reigning champion of the race is Frankenstein played by the delicious Manu Bennett. Frankenstein hopes to hang onto his winning crown, but he has a rebel spy for a co-pilot that certainly threatens his odds.
Produced by Roger Corman, the king of cult classics, ‘Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050‘ features a cast including Burt Grinstead (“NCIS”), Marci Miller (‘Viper‘), Folake Olowofoyeku (‘The Beaver‘), Anessa Ramsey (‘Footloose‘), Yancy Butler (‘Hard Target‘) and Charlie Farrell (‘Cantar‘).
