Universal Home Entertainment has unleashed the trailer for the new direct to DVD sequel to Paul W.S. Anderson's Death Race remake, Death Race: Frankenstein Lives. This new film has a solid cast of fun actors that include Luke Goss, Tanit Phoenix, Sean Bean, Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo, Frederick Koehler, and Lauren Cohan.
The DVD/Blu-ray is set to come out in 2011, but there's no specific date. Chances are, if you enjoyed the remake then you'll enjoy this sequel as well. The movie looks like an over-the-top, action-packed, B-movie good time.
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.
