Win a copy of Roger Corman’s latest genre effort Death Race 2050 on Blu-ray
It may get tiresome to say over and over and over again, but in the history of cinema there is no one else quite like the amazing, trendsetting, groundbreaking and tireless Roger Corman. And very likely, there probably never will be again. The now 90 year old producer/director/mogul and iconoclast recently wrapped yet another motion picture, a sequel/reboot of one his most famous titles, 1975’s Paul Bartel-directed Death Race 2000. This one is called Death Race 2050 and it stars Manu Bennett, Burt Grinstead, Marci Miller, Folake Olowofoyeku, Anessa Ramsey, Yancy Butler, and Charlie Farrell and the immortal Malcolm McDowell. The film is directed by sometime actor G.J. Echternkamp.
Synopsis: 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 (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 (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 released on January 17th at a MSRP price of $26.98 (Blu-ray) and $22.98 (DVD).
