DEATH RACE 2000 is a 1975 cult film directed that was directed by Paul Bartel, and starred David Carradine, Simone Griffeth and Sylvester Stallone. The film takes place in a dystopian American society in the year 2000, where the murderous Transcontinental Road Race has become a form of national entertainment. Then back in 2008, the film was remade by director Paul W. S. Anderson under the title of DEATH RACE which spawned a couple of direct to DVD sequels in 2011 and 2013.

DEATH RACE 2050 is said to contain "full-throttle mayhem and black-hearted humor."
"In the not-too-distant future, America is controlled by an all-powerful corporate government that keeps the masses placated with violent virtual-reality entertainment. The event of the year is the Death Race, where a motley assortment of drivers compete in a cross-country road race, scoring points for running down pedestrians and killing each other. The reigning champion and popular favorite is half-man, half-machine Frankenstein — but little does he know he’s taken on a rebel spy as his co-pilot."
DEATH RACE 2050 comes to Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD release January 17th.
