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. »

Joining the Death Race family are Black SailsZach McGowan, Christine Marzano, Danny Glover, Lorina Kamburova and a number of homegrown talent from here in the UK: Cassie Clare, Nicholas Aaron, Lucy Aarden, Julian Seager, Lee Shone, Kellie Blaise and Cameron Jack as The Warden… »

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.

‘Gleason’: How Filmmaker Clay Tweel Found an Unexpected Story of Hope

11 January 2017 9:51 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s Note: When New Orleans Saint defensive star Steve Gleason learned he had Als, his wife Michel was pregnant. Instinctively, he picked up a camera and started talking to his unborn son, and so began the documentation of a man’s determination to tackle his disease head-on.

Gleason,” now an Oscar candidate for Best Documentary, quickly grew beyond being one man’s video diary. Under the guidance of director Clay Tweel, Gleason’s story was painted on a far broader canvas, one following a traditional hero’s journey that is able to capture the sadness, triumph, and joy of a family facing impossible odds. IndieWire recently asked Tweel about how he crafted the Gleasons’ inspiring story from 1300 hours of painfully intimate footage and how the project evolved as the NFL star’s body weakened.

The Challenge

There were two challenges that immediately presented themselves on this project. First of all, »

After screening at Fantastic Fest and the Toronto International Film Festival last fall, “Sadako vs. Kayako” — aka the movie pitting the villains of “The Ring” and “The Grudge” against each other — will soon be available to watch on the streaming service Shudder. Watch the film’s trailer below.

Preceded by the likes of “Alien vs. Predator” and “Freddy vs. Jason,” the film makes no secret of being total fan service for the two respective J-horror franchises. (Both have been remade here in America, of course, though purists contend that neither live up to the original.) The trailer gives a brief rundown of the two villains’ mythologies — Sadako comes from a cursed VHS, while Kayako is tied to the house in which she died — before setting them loose on one another, ostensibly as a means of »

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 »

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, »

Roger Corman’s Death Race 2050 Shows Off Road Kill Carnage in Red Band Trailer

6 January 2017 3:09 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

50 points for running over seniors! Now that’s bloody fun.

Legendary filmmaker Roger Corman produced a new re-imagined Grindhouse-style Death Race 2050, starring Manu Bennett and Malcom McDowell.

In this high-octane race, a corporate government devised a way to maintain population control in futuristic America in the year 2050 by having a crew of violent drivers competing in a cross-country road race. As the drivers compete for the crown, they score extra points for running innocent people and killing each other on the path. And the crowds will love it.

The reigning champion and fan favorite, Frankenstein (Bennett), who’s half-man and half-machine, wants to take the crown, but his rebel spy co-pilot threatens his legacy.

The rest of the cast features Burt Grinstead, Marci Miller, Folake Olowofoyeku, Anessa Ramsey, Yancy Butler and Charlie Farrell. G.J. Echternkamp directed the film from the screenplay he co-wrote with Matt Yamashita.

Death Race 2050 will be available on Blu-ray, »
