Frankenstein lives on in this exclusive new clip from Death Race 2 (the prequel). Watch Luke Goss burn pavement and do his best "driving" pantomime. All we need now is Joan Allen threatening to defecate on the sidewalk!
As you can see the "prequel" pulls a lot from the Paul W.S. Anderson movie, which means lots of lady lump slo-mo shots, explosions, weaponized cars and, hopefully, a line that can top Joan Allen's infamous quip, "Fuck with me, and we'll see who shits on the sidewalk!" Basically, we're in.
Here's the official synopsis:
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, where inmates fight each other in a highly rated televised death match, where there are no rules, and the winner is the one who survives the gladiator-style, no-holds-barred competition. Convicted cop-killer Carl Lucas (Luke Goss) arrives on the Island to serve his life sentence just as ruthlessly ambitious television personality September Jones evolves the death match into 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.
Death Race 2 will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on January 19th, 2011.
