Don’t worry, if you haven’t seen any Death Race movies yet, you won’t have trouble following Death Race 3: Inferno. But if you haven’t seen the one that started it all, Roger Corman‘s Death Race 2000, then you’re doing something wrong with your life. Anyways, Death Race 2 director Roel Reiné and writer Tony Giglio are back for part three, as well as actors Luke Goss, Danny Trejo, Ving Rhames, and Tanit Phoenix. Find out how Universal’s Blu-ray measures up after the jump.
Death Race 3: Inferno, available on DVD/Blu-ray on January 22nd with deleted scenes and “making of” features, finds the legendary Frankenstein (aka Carl Lucas, played by Luke Goss) – the greatest Death Race driver of all time – battling for his freedom through the South African desert, in a vicious winner-take-all race that pits teams of convicts against each other to the death. This action-packed thrill-ride also stars Danny Trejo, Ving Rhames, Dougray Scott and Tanit Phoenix.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Danny Trejo talked about how much fun it is to be a bad-ass, why he’s enjoyed being a part of the Death Race movies, that he could personally identify with his character, how he loves getting to do action work, getting to have a romance in the film, what it was like to work in South Africa, and that he would definitely be up for doing more Death Race films. He also talked about his experience on the hit FX drama series Sons of Anarchy, what makes Machete Kills bigger and badder, and all of the roles he has coming up next, including In the Blood with Gina Carano, Force of Execution with Steven Seagal and Reach Me with Sylvester Stallone. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
If you’re a fan of the Death Race franchise, you’re in luck, because director Roel Reine is back again with a new trailer for Death Race 3: Inferno. The property kicked off in 2008 with Jason Statham as a prisoner racing against other inmates to win his freedom. The follow-up film was a prequel, introducing Luke Goss as the seemingly invincible racer, Frankenstein. Death Race 3: Inferno sees the return of Goss as Frankenstein as the competition now heads to a new locale: South Africa’s Kalahari Desert. Hit the jump to check out the new trailer and be sure to pick up Death Race 3: Inferno on Blu-ray and DVD early next year.
