I have to admit I'm a big Jason Statham fan. I realize 3/4ths of the time he plays the same character, the guy with excellent driving skills and a mouth, but I don't care I enjoy his work, and you usually know what you're getting. With me cutting back on the number of times I go to the theater this year I missed his film Death Race, luckily it hits stores Sunday the 21st on DVD & BluRay.

So do car chases, hot girls and major explosions sound like your kind of thing? If so you might want to check it out these sneak peeks at some of the bonus features the fine folks over at Universal Home Entertainment sent over:

Jason Statham is "lean wiry and tough".


Again look for the unrated movie on DVD and Blu-ray Hi-Def this Sunday, 12/21, starring Jason Statham, with Tyrese Gibson, Joan Allen and Ian McShane. Just in case you missed out on the plot here's a synopsis:

Welcome to the Death Race, where hardened convicts and smoking-hot navigators race tricked-out cars in the most twisted spectator sport on Earth! Sentenced to the world's most dangerous prison for a murder he did not commit, Jensen Ames (Jason Statham) has only one chance to get out alive - win the ultimate race to the death. Also starring Tyrese Gibson, Death Race is a "supercharged, sick and satisfying” (Nathan Lee, The New York Times) ride that will keep you pinned to your seat all the way to its insane, metal-crushing end!
