Death Race 2050 Trailer Released

The first trailer for Roger Corman's Death Race 2050 has been released online. The original Death Race 2000 was released over forty years ago, and producer Roger Corman is back to bring fans a sequel for the cult classic film.

Death Race 2050 is a direct to home video release, which is set to hit Blu-ray, DVD, and digital HD on January 17, 2017. Death Race 2050 is directed by G.J. Echternkamp. The film stars Malcolm McDowell as The Chairman and Manu Bennett as Frankenstein.

For comic book fans, the highlight of the film will likely be Manu Bennett, who plays Deathstroke on Arrow. Bennett's run as Deathstroke on Arrow was one of the most popular arcs of the series, and many fans have been clamoring for his return. A recent photo shared on social media by Stephen Amell suggests that Bennett's Deathsroke could be returning this year on the 100th episode.

Other Death Race 2050 cast members include Burt Grinstead, Marci Miller, Folake Olowofoyeku, Anessa Ramsey, Yancy Butler, and Charlie Farrell.

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.


The trailer for Roger Coman's Death Race 2050 is set to premiere at New York Comic Con, but Entertainment Weekly released it early online.
