It’s time to hit the road and get to know the rules of the deadliest race in the world. Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 has officially arrived on Blu-ray/DVD now from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
We have a fresh new clip featuring reigning champion Frankenstein (Manu Bennett) reminding you of the “Rules of the Death Race” before you shift into gear in the highly-anticipated reboot of the cult classic sci-fi, 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.
The cast also features Burt Grinstead (NCIS), Marci Miller (Viper), Folake Olowofoyeku (The Beaver), Anessa Ramsey (Footloose), Yancy Butler (Hard Target) and Charlie Farrell (Cantar).
The Blu-ray combo pack comes with a few bonus features you don’t want to miss.
