You saw the mean looking choptop Buick Riviera first when we showed you the cars of Death Race and y'all seemed to react favorably, so we figured you might like to see the first one-sheet for the Statham-starring film showing it again looking all bad-ass. Sure it's not the Death Race trailer, and sure, it reveals a tagline — "Get ready for a killer ride" — that screams hackneyed and lame, but whatever, it's not bad for a Tuesday before the Fourth of July weekend. Want to see the bevy of beefy cars from the film again? Well, they're waiting your eyeballs below. [via Universal]
True story... I talked my grandmother into taking me to see the original release in the theater. I was about 12 and she was about, well, 100 it seemed at the time (probably early to mid 60's). It was not what I expected, to say the least. We left halfway through the movie, at my request. She was a trooper.
