New Clip and Featurette for Death Race 2
12.28.10 by Ryan
Death Race 2 may be the first prequel to a prequel. Set before Paul W.S. Anderson's Death Race, the movie follows the very first driver to assume the mantle of "Frankenstein" (Luke Goss) in the futuristic prison race. In the DVD commentary of Anderson's Death Race, the director described his movie as a prequel to Roger Corman's 1975 cult classic Death Race 2000, which was also the basis of Anderson's Death Race. Sound confusing? The two latest clips and featurette show that Death Race 2 has enough of the familiar car chases and tough guy speeches found in action movies to keep anyone from getting lost.
In the first clip, Goss enters into a car chase with the police that causes Sean Bean to destroy a perfectly good, flat-screen TV.
In the second clip, Bean goes on the offensive and hires hitmen to take down Goss.
The latest featurette explores more of Carl Lucas, the character Goss is portraying in the movie, through interviews with director Roel Reiné, Danny Trejo, and Goss himself.
