Death Race 2 - Trailer Debut!Deth_Banger
Death Race 2 is the prequel to Paul W.S. Anderson's remake of the cult classic Death Race 2000 (1975) and we have the trailer for you to view after the break.
The prequel Death Race 2 is directed by Roel Reine and written by Tony Gigilo and the film does have quite a stella cast including; Luke Goss, Tanit Phoenix, Sean Bean, Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo, Frederick Koehler and Lauren Cohan. The movie will be released straight to DVD/Blu-ray with no release date set as of yet.
This does look like a good time, although the title isn't very exciting and doesn't actually suggest prequel, I'm sure that could cause some confusion but maybe they will change the title... who knows?
But I'm glad they have taken the prequel route as hopefully it will reveal the origins of Frankenstein and we all love a prequel right? Throw in lots of over the top gore and action, then you've got yourself a winner.
Check out the trailer:
Synopsis: "Death Race 2 takes place in the very near future, as the United States economy begins to decline and violent crime starts to spiral out of control. To contain the growing criminal population, a vast network of for-profit, private prisons springs up, creating a lawless subculture ruled by gangs, cold-blooded killers and sociopaths. The worst of these prisons is Terminal Island. Convicted cop-killer Carl Lucas arrives on the Island to serve his life sentence just as ruthlessly ambitious television personality September Jones launches the ultimate reality show, Death Race. A brutal prison yard demolition derby that pits prisoners against each other in steel reinforced, heavily armed vehicles, Death Race offers the winner the ultimate prize: freedom — if he can survive to enjoy it. When Lucas signs up to be a driver, the stage is set for the birth of a legendary racer."
