It’s a great week for South African actors Tanit Phoenix and Joe Vaz. As Lost Boys: The Thirst gears up for release on DVD and BluRay next week (Oct 12th) the trailer for Death Race 2 has just surfaced on the web.
In Lost Boys: The Thirst Tanit and Joe star as Gwen Leiber and Claus respectively, in Death Race 2 Tanit plays Katrina Banks, Carl Lucas’s (Luke Goss) hotter-than-hell navigator and Joe is Rocco who, together with Goldberg (Danny Trejo) and Lists (Frederick Koehler) make up Lucas’s pit crew.
Here’s the synopsis from Play.com
Get ready for the drive of your life with Death Race 2, the adrenaline pumping, car crunching, action packed prequel to Death Race (2008), starring Luke Goss (Tekken, Hell Boy II: The Golden Army), Sean Bean (Lord Of The Rings, Red Riding) and Ving Rhames (Mission Impossible Trilogy, Piranha 3D).
In the not too distant future, the United States economy is in decline and violent crime is spiraling out of control. In an attempt to regain power over the growing criminal population, a vast network of for-profit, private prisons has opened up. But rather than solving society’s problems they have created a lawless subculture run by gangs, killers and sociopaths.
Catch it on DVD and BluRay from the 27th of December 2010 (UK Release date).
