Paul Bartel's 1975 cult classic Death Race 2000 gets a 2008 jolt in Paul W.S. Anderson's Death Race. The locale of the game is different but the conceit is the same: Race. Kill. Simple enough, right? Courtesy of Universal Pictures, ShockTillYouDrop.com presents your exclusive first look at the one-sheet.
Jason Statham (Crank) stars as Jensen Ames, a race car driver who is framed for murder, tossed in the slammer and forced into the titular game. Donning the moniker "Frankenstein," and wearing a metallic visage, Ames races for freedom...so he thinks. Tyrese Gibson, Joan Allen and Ian McShane star.
And just a friendly reminder, Universal has set up a sweepstakes (DeathRacemovie.net/Sweeps) where you can enter to win a trip to the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con and make an appearance in the Race DVD.
