50 points for running over seniors! Now that’s bloody fun.

Legendary filmmaker Roger Corman produced a new re-imagined Grindhouse-style DEATH RACE 2050, starring Manu Bennett and Malcom McDowell.

In this high-octane race, a corporate government devised a way to maintain population control in futuristic America in the year 2050 by having a crew of violent drivers competing in a cross-country road race. As the drivers compete for the crown, they score extra points for running innocent people and killing each other on the path. And the crowds will love it.

The reigning champion and fan favorite, Frankenstein (Bennett), who’s half-man and half-machine, wants to take the crown, but his rebel spy co-pilot threatens his legacy.

The rest of the cast features Burt Grinstead, Marci Miller, Folake Olowofoyeku, Anessa Ramsey, Yancy Butler and Charlie Farrell. G.J. Echternkamp directed the film from the screenplay he co-wrote with Matt Yamashita.

DEATH RACE 2050 will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on January 17 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
