Venkmam here with LOTS of pics form the upcoming movie 'Death Race' staring Jason Stathem. Empire Online released the first pic below. But IESB.net got a close up shot of the bad-ass Mustang Jason drives around in the movie. The rest are pics from around the web. It looks like a Mad Max type movie. If you don't know what it is about here is the story summary:
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.
Seems like it will be one hell of a ride. I love Jason Statham movies they are fun as hell, and you can tell he has a blast making them. These types of movies are a guilty pleasure of mine, Just love it!
DEATH RACE opens in theaters August 22nd!
