Read the official synopsis and watch the new trailer for Death Race 2050, produced by the legendary Roger Corman, directed by GJ Echternkamp and starring Malcolm McDowell, Manu Bennett, Marci Miller, Burt Grinstead and Folake Olowofoyeku:
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.
Death Race 2050 will be available to buy on DVD and Blu-ray from 20 March 2017. For all the latest movie news, pick up the new issue of SciFiNow.
