Following the near fatal events of 'Death Race 2: Frankenstein Lives', 'Death Race 3: Inferno' sees the now badly scarred Carl Lucas (now known as Frankenstein) attempt to win his final race which will see his release from prison. Having already had success with four races and managing to secure himself as a legend in the Death Race game, things look to be on Carl's side for once. However, when he and his team are transferred away from Terminal Island prison, they are forced to play out this dangerous event in the first ever desert race and the stakes are even higher this time. Will Carl survive and win his freedom? And will a new face find success in franchising the controversial fight-to-the-death scheme?
Roel Reine of 2010's 'Death Race 2' fame (not to mention 'The Delivery' and 'Deadwater') returns as director for an even grittier and more deadly sequel alongside screenwriter Tony Giglio ('In Enemy Hands', 'Chaos', 'Timber Falls'). 'Death Race 3: Inferno' is car racing at its most perilous - the proof is in the name. Will Death Race be the sticky end for Carl? Or will we see happy endings akin to the first 'Death Race' movie? Either way it is sure to take audiences on an action packed thrill ride from its December 2012 release.

In a chaotic dystopian future, America has turned into one huge slum devastated by the Atomic Wars and overrun with criminals. Survivors of the old world dwell in megacities in order to separate themselves from the radioactive parts of the world known as Cursed Earth occupied by mutant people. The only ones enforcing any kind of order in the country are the Judges of the Hall of Justice; police officers that have been given the role of judge, jury and executioner. Judge Dredd is the most advanced and experienced Judge and takes it upon himself to mentor a rookie called Cassandra Anderson who possesses psychic powers due to a genetic mutation caused in the Atomic Wars. The pair bravely venture to the one place that few Judges ever dare to endeavour; a two-hundred floor drug manufacturing base run by the heavily scarred, merciless Ma-Ma in one unruly city known as Mega City One. She and her ring of criminals are producing a new drug on a massive scale called Slo-Mo which makes the consumer perceive time moving at 1% of its normal speed.

A fictional narrative created to encompass several storiesthat personify the nation-altering emotional crux of South Africa's Truthand Reconciliation hearings, "In My Country" accomplishes itsgoal -- but does so largely through obvious plot devices.
JulietteBinoche and Samuel L. Jackson give strong, movingperformances as two journalists -- one Afrikaner, one African-American-- covering the gut-wrenching testimony as the oppressed came face-to-facewith their oppressors during these historical early-1990s committees, heldall over the upended nation as it transitioned from apartheid to democracy.But it's too obvious that their characters are designed to represent (orat least be acquainted with) particular points of view that must come toa symbolic accord for the country's race issues to be resolved.
She comes from an enlightened perspective about equality,but her rich, white family is nervous about living in the new South Africa-- and of course they have skeletons in their closets that soon come tolight. He has a huge chip on his shoulder about race relations, havinggrown up seeing America's Civil Rights movement pave the way for more equalitybefore the country developed a collective sense of denial about the lingeringdiscrimination still ingrained in its culture.
