Saw a trailer for this when I watched Hellboy 2.

They're coming out with a new Death Race.

Well, it would be hard for it to be worse than the original (or course that was some of its charm), but it does look to be a bit "overdone".

P.S. In the trailer they say the Mustang has 30mm Gatling guns on it. There is no way those are 30mm, the one 30mm Gatling gun on an A-10 takes up about half the front part of the plane.

I was not all that impressed. It seems to be a "if you saw the trailer, you saw the movie" kind of movie to me.

YMMV

They cannot make anything that will top the original. That movie is perfection!

I think this movie is what they call "fiction." (And yes, I've been a roll all day.)

Regardless if it's fiction or not, I've never seen anyone remotely as hot as the girls in that trailer in a womens prison. If there's a prison with girls that hot in it, then I'm making a career change to be a guard there.

But it does have Joan Allen. Top shelf talent + $$$$ + cocktail napkin script = summer movie

Don't forget Sly Stallone was in Death Race 2000, too.

this one has Jason Statham in it. YAY!

By the way, I agree, if you have seen the trailer, you have seen the movie, they gave away way too much of it in the preview...i will still see it though.

I am actually looking forward to seeing the new Deathrace movie. Of course it cant be near as good as the original as the original was filled with VW's and David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone. I bet both of them wish they never made Deathrace 2000! LOL

Do they still get points for killing bystanders? If not, I'm not going.

Seems like it's more a remake of Running Man than death race 2000.

Gesh,

Where is the guy with the hand grenade for a hand? The only way to stop is is to win it. I liked the original, this looks like crap. And normally I like crap like this......but I will pass this time.

Agreed, not a faithful re-make but...

Watching that trailer makes me remember that I still want to build a Mad Max/post apocalyptic/demolition derby-style street car

Did you guys know they have the original Death Race Vette at the Mid America Motorworks museum? There's some other cool cars there, but that one was my favorite!

What's the deal with the face engine in the back of the Death Race Vette (actually a VolkVair) shown there? The one from the movie definitely did not have that.
