'Star Wars': The men who played Boba Fett reunite and talk about what makes the bounty hunter so cool

Darth Vader may wear all black, the Emperor may be able to shoot lightening out of his fingers, and Darth Maul may have a bitchin’ double lightsaber, but the biggest badass in the Star Wars universe will always be the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett. It’s hard to explain just what it is that makes Boba Fett so freakin’ cool, so we asked the three men who played the majority of scenes as the man of few words but many kills to do it for us. That’s right, as part of EW’s new Reunions issue, we brought

Death Race 2 and Building Vehicular Frankensteins: A Movie Review

Director: Roel Reine.

Writers: Paul W. S. Anderson and Tony Giglio.

Moonlighting Films is the production company who is bringing Death Race 2 to Blu-ray and DVD January 18th. In case you are not familiar with the series, Death Race (2008) was a remake of Roger Corman's film, titled Death Race 2000 (1975). Now, Death Race 2 is a prequel to both the 1975 and 2008 film, with director Roel Reine's (Wolf Town) latest film investigating the origins of the mysterious character Frankenstein. Action crafting zealout Paul W. S. Anderson (Resident Evil) co-wrote this film's script with Tony Giglio (Timber Falls), much like the 2008 version. This straight-to-video endeavour gives the blood-thirsty fans what they want; scantily clad women parade around before exploding on impact, and Death Race 2 harkens back to the time of Gladiatorial Roman Arenas. But here, there are 20,000 rounds of ammunition to be expended before the end credits role.
