Death Race 2050 Roger Corman

The only thing that beats the excitment of another Roger Corman movie is the anticipation of another DEATH RACE movie! Fortunately, DEATH RACE 2050 provides both in one fell swoop, and now you can check out its blistering red band trailer. The extended trailer looks like a bonkers good time with a Herley Quinn-esque female racer and plenty of the sizzling social commentary that marks the best of Corman's work. Check it out below!

The film will be reaching DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital HD on January 17, 2017. You can pre-order it RIGHT HERE!

The synopsis:

In the not-too-distant future, America is controlled by an all-powerful corporate government that keeps the masses placated with violent virtual-reality entertainment. The event of the year is the Death Race, where a motley assortment of drivers compete in a cross-country road race, scoring points for running down pedestrians and killing each other. The reigning champion and popular favorite is half-man, half-machine Frankenstein — but little does he know he’s taken on a rebel spy as his co-pilot.

Special features on the home video release will include:
