Death Race 2050

Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 is a reboot of his original cult classic film, Death Race 2000, due for release by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment in 2017.

Filled with full-throttle mayhem and black-hearted humor, Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 takes place in the not-too-distant future where 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.

This all-new film stars Manu Bennett (The Hobbit franchise) as Frankenstein and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) as the Chairman, as well as Burt Grinstead (“NCIS”), Marci Miller (Viper), Folake Olowofoyeku (The Beaver), Anessa Ramsey (Footloose), Yancy Butler (Hard Target) and Charlie Farrell (Cantar).
