Competition: Win Roger Corman’s ‘Death Race 2050′ on DVD!

16 March 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

A delirious blend of high-octane action, razor-sharp political satire and full-throttle mayhem, Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 is the highly anticipated reboot of the cult classic Death Race 2000 (which itself was remade in 2008) . The film straps viewers into the driver’s seat of the ultimate auto showdown, a blood-splattered no-holds-barred virtual-reality show that gleefully pits hardened road warriors against each other — and their audience.

Legendary filmmaking icon, Roger Corman, is back with his most outrageous film yet in this sensational, action-packed and darkly humorous reboot of the original Death Race 2000! It’s the year 2050 and America is controlled by an all-powerful corporate government ruled by The Chairman (Malcolm McDowell). The masses have been brainwashed with violent virtual-reality entertainment. The event of the year is the Death Race, in which a motley crew of violent drivers compete in a cross-country road race, scoring points for shamelessly running people »

The Soviet sci-fi film reworked by Francis Ford Coppola

20 February 2017 5:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 21, 2017

Before he made The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, Francis Ford Coppola got his start by editing monsters into a Soviet sci-fi film...

Everyone loves a good success story, and Hollywood history's full of them. Actors sleeping in their cars until they get their first lucky break. Writers papering the walls of their lodgings with rejection letters until they finally get a script in front of a receptive producer. Filmmakers who've spent years paying their dues before a studio finally comes calling.

Director Francis Ford Coppola, before he shot to fame - and, for a time, considerable wealth - with such films as The Godfather, The Conversation and Apocalypse Now, scrabbled around at the lower end of the industry like just about everyone else. »

Death Race 2050, Dragons, Worms and Parents: Jim Hemphill’s Home Video Recommendations

3 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Paul Bartel’s 1975 road race movie Death Race 2000 is one of the great exploitation films of all time, a model of how to use the creative freedom of working with limited resources within a marketable genre for the purposes of subversive satire. Produced by Roger Corman, it has a deliciously nasty premise: in the (then) future, the population is kept pacified by gory reality entertainment in the form of a cross-country road race in which drivers receive points for mowing down pedestrians. Bartel and screenwriters Robert Thom and Charles Griffith milk this conceit for all that it’s worth, ramping […] »

If You Have to Visit Black Rock, This New Blu Is the Way to Go

Warner Archive Delivers the Best Way to Enjoy a Bad Day at Black Rock

Welcome to this week in home video! Click the title to buy a Blu-ray/DVD from Amazon and help support Fsr in the process!

Pick of the WeekBad Day at Black Rock [Warner Archive]

What is it? A one-armed man arrives via train in a remote western town, and the populace reacts with suspicion and violence.

Why buy it? Spencer Tracy excels as the polite but mysterious stranger whose presence sets everyone on edge, and the more he probes the harder they push. The film explores threads of America’s deep-seated racism and small-town insulation, and it pairs that commentary with a steadily increasing suspense. The themes and actions here are still sadly relevant, even now, and it makes for an important watch that still manages to entertain. Tracy’s potential adversaries include Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Walter Brennan, and »

Interview: Legendary Filmmaker Roger Corman Discusses Death Race 2050

13 January 2017 2:47 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Racing onto Blu-ray, DVD, and digital platforms everywhere on January 17th is Death Race 2050, which was co-written and directed by G.J. Echternkamp and produced by the legendary Roger Corman, who was also the producing force behind Death Race 2000 back in the mid-1970s.

In late 2016, just a day or two after the 2016 Presidential Election, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Corman about this latest iteration of the Death Race universe. During our conversation, Corman discussed the socio-political relevance of both Death Race 2050 as well as the original Death Race, why they chose to return to the retro-futuristic realm for this iteration, collaborating with Echternkamp, and what keeps him going after enjoying a successful career in Hollywood for over 60 years now.

Great to speak to you today, Roger. I have a feeling this conversation would have went a little bit differently had the election gone a different way. »

11 January 2017 2:31 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 1975, the world was first introduced to the Roger Corman-produced cult action film “Death Race 2000.” Directed by Paul Bartel and starring David Carradine (“Kill Bill: Volume 2”) and Sylvester Stallone (“Rocky”), the film follows a murderous Transcontinental Road Race in a dystopian American society. Over the years, it garnered cult acclaim and eventurally produced a remake in 2008 followed by two direct-to-dvd sequels.

Full Red Band Trailer for Corman's Racing Reboot 'Death Race 2050'

8 January 2017 11:11 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Ready for one last dance?" Universal has launched a new trailer for the racing reboot Death Race 2050, updating Roger Corman's 1975 camp classic Death Race 2000. We featured a short teaser trailer for this back in October, but now we have a full-length trailer and it's red band because they don't hold back on the violence and gore and nudity, which are always important aspects of Roger Corman's movies. Death Race 2050 brings back the character of Frankenstein, played this time by Manu Bennett, who takes on drivers in the deadly, violent cross-country road race. This also stars Malcolm McDowell, Burt Grinstead, and Marci Miller. This looks fun, but it doesn't look like that different from the original - just another reboot. Here's the new red band trailer for G.J. Echternkamp's Death Race 2050, direct from YouTube: In the not-too-distant future, America is controlled by an all-powerful »

‘Death Race 2050’ Red Band Trailer: Things Get Bloody in Roger Corman’s Post-Apocalyptic Racing Film

7 January 2017 2:40 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

From cult icon Roger Corman comes the sensational, action-packed film “Death Race 2050,” sequel to his 1975 post-apocalyptic picture “Death Race 2000.” The red band trailer, which was recently released, features even more car crashes, explosions, blood and pedestrian fatalities.

Directed by G.J. Echternkamp, the film is set in the year 2050 when America is controlled by a powerful corporate government ruled by The Chairman (Malcom McDowell). The story follows the most violent event of the year, as drivers compete cross-country in a road race, scoring points for shamelessly running people over, as well as crashing each other off the road.

“Now this is all about freedom,” says The Chairman. “The freedom to sit on your big, fat ass all day and watch the single greatest sports event known to man. Welcome to the Death Race.”

Manu Bennett co-star as Frankenstein, the reigning champion of the race. Additional cast members include Marci Miller, »
