Death Race Crashes onto Blu-ray with BD-Live Contest


A new trade publication advertisement has confirmed Universal Studios Home Entertainment plans to release Death Race starring Jason Statham on Blu-ray December 23, day-and-date with DVD.

Tech specs, though not confirmed, will likely offer a widescreen 1080p transfer and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.

Only one extra feature is known at this time and it’s a unique one. Utilizing BD-Live, viewers will be able to record a play-by-play video of themselves. Once recorded, the video can be uploaded online and then judged by “someone” with prizes at stake.

We’ll have more on Death Race once Universal makes an official announcement. In the meantime, check out the slick cover art below and discuss Death Race on Blu-ray in this dedicated HDR Forums thread.
