Death Race, the upcoming movie starring Jason Statham that should be released in end of August 2008, is indeed a remake of Death Race 2000, a cult action film from 1975 that notably starred David Carradine (Kung Fu, not Kung Fu Panda) and Sylvester Stallone (Rambo 5).
Here below the trailer of Death Race 2000, the original Death Race movie:

Fortunately we can already confirm that in the new Death race the cars and the outfits will look much better than this kitschy 1975 movie. The latest pictures of Death Race look indeed promising. But I ope they'll keep the same dark humor as in the original film.
