Frankenstein will once again be speeding to Blu-ray this January!

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios has revealed that 'Death Race 3: Inferno' will have a Blu-ray release on January 22.

The greatest Death Race driver of all time battles for his freedom through an infernal desert in an unimaginably vicious new competition that pits teams of hardened convicts against each other in a blood-spattered, winner-take-all race through South Africa. This explosive, unrated addition to the high-octane franchise revs up the adrenaline with more extreme action, outrageous new vehicles, brutal stunts and an all-star cast.

Inspired by Roger Corman’s cult classic 'Death Race 2000,' the film is directed by Roel Reiné ('Death Race 2') and produced by Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt, as well as Mike Elliott ('Death Race 2,' 'The Eye'). The film stars Luke Goss ('Death Race 2,' 'Hellboy 2: The Golden Army,' 'Blade 2'), Danny Trejo ('Death Race 2,' 'Machete,' “Sons of Anarchy”), Ving Rhames ('Death Race 2,' 'Mission: Impossible' franchise, 'Pulp Fiction'), Dougray Scott ('Mission: Impossible II,' “Heist”), Tanit Phoenix ('Death Race 2,' “Femme Fatales”), Fred Koehler ('Death Race' 1 & 2, “Lost”) and Robin Shou ('Death Race' 1 & 2, 'Mortal Kombat').

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Feature Commentary With Director Roel Reiné, The Making of Death Race 3: Inferno, Deleted Scenes, Deleted Shots Montage, and the Blu-ray exclusive Alternate Opening, Racing for Death, and Art Imitating Life: Goldberg.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
