    17 Photos from Paul W.S. Anderson’s Death Race

    Posted on Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008 at 1:40 am by: Peter Sciretta

    Universal has released a batch of new photos for Paul W.S. Anderson’s Death Race. Check them out after the jump. As always, click to enlarge.


    Official Plot Synopsis: Jason Statham leads the cast of an action-thriller set in the post-industrial wasteland of tomorrow, with the world’s most brutal sporting event as its backdrop. A penitentiary full of felons has inspired the jailers to create a grisly pastime ripe for lucrative kickbacks. Now, adrenalized inmates, a global audience hungry for televised violence and a spectacular arena come together to form the “Death Race.”
    Three-time speedway champion Jensen Ames (Statham) is an expert at survival in the harsh landscape that has become our country. Just as he thinks he has turned his life around, the ex-con is framed for a gruesome murder he didn’t commit. Forced to don the mask of the mythical driver Frankenstein — a crowd favorite who seems impossible to kill — Ames is given an easy choice by Terminal Island’s warden (Joan Allen): suit up or rot away in a cell.
    His face hidden by a metallic mask, one convict will be put through an insane three-day challenge. Ames must survive a gauntlet of the most vicious criminals in the country’s toughest prison to claim the prize of freedom. Driving a monster car outfitted with machine guns, flamethrowers and grenade launchers, one desperate man will destroy anything in his path to win the most twisted spectator sport on Earth.

    Death Race
    is scheduled to hit theaters on August 22nd 2008.

    It's on out DVD & Blu-Ray and I'm about to watch it.

    Is this a remake of the previous Death Race movie from 1975? I couldn't find any info on it but they have the same concept. Different setting though.

    I just watched it and I loved it!

    It's based on the original movie.

    Not much of a story in it but the action scenes are terrific.

    Jason Statham is becoming one of my favorite actors. It also has Tyrese in it who plays a gay racer, lol. He can act though.

    I DEFINETLY recommend it to everyone.
