Jason Statham's Death Race Poster Debut
You've seen the adrenaline-fueled trailer for Death Race, now check out the poster! Unfortunately there's not much adrenaline flowing in this, but at least it's something somewhat energetic to look at. Although a couple of other people don't seem to be very excited by this poster, I actually think it looks pretty damn good. It's a step up from the standard "floating heads" posters with some smart design elements and better position of the "floating heads." Nothing to really start geeking out about, but I think it's a solid poster for what looks like a solid film. Paul W.S. Anderson has really thrown me for a loop this time! Maybe Death Race will actually be good? What are your thoughts on this new poster?
Thanks to ShockTillYouDrop.com for officially debuting this poster. You can already find it on display at your local movie theater. I also suggest everyone go watch the trailer if you haven't already.
A penitentiary full of felons has inspired the jailers to create a grisly pastime ripe for lucrative kickbacks. Now, adrenalized inmates, a global audience hungry for televised violence and a spectacular arena come together to form the Death Race. Three-time speedway champion Jensen Ames is an expert at survival in the harsh landscape that has become our country. Just as he thinks he has turned his life around, the ex-con is framed for a gruesome murder he didn’t commit. Forced to don the mask of the mythical driver Frankenstein—a crowd favorite who seems impossible to kill—Ames is given an easy choice by Terminal Island’s warden: suit up or rot away in a cell.
Death Race is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, of Mortal Kombat, Soldier, Resident Evil, and Alien vs Predator, with a screenplay written by J.F. Lawton, of Under Siege, Blankman, Chain Reaction, and Dead or Alive. The film is a remake of the 1975 cult classic B-movie Death Race 2000 directed by Paul Bartel and starring David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone. Death Race arrives in theaters on August 22nd.
