It’s been 40 years since Death Race 2000 started the engines of this franchise, and in this Fast racing-film era (Is there really not a handy name for this genre? Hard to believe) which also has Mad Max back with a vengeance, the real surprise is that Roger Corman doesn’t do these more often.
This one’s got Malcolm McDowell, Manu Bennett, Burt Grinstead, Marci Miller, Folake Olowofoyeku, Anessa Ramsey, Charlie Farrell, and Yancy Butler (Yancy Butler, where have you been? I had to go look that up.)
Here’s the trailer via EW, debuting at NYCC today. The film gets a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD release January 17, 2017.
