Death Race Poster Reminiscent Of Uwe Boll

From cinemablend, Jason Statham’s new movie Death Race, despite the incredible waste of fossil fuels it represents, looks like it might be fun. The movie’s first official poster has popped up online over at ShockTillYouDrop, and it looks fun too… until you notice its strange resemblance to something else.

The poster is weirdly similar to the poster for the much hated Uwe Boll movie In the Name of the King. In fact, it’s almost a mirror image. Does Jason Statham’s head naturally lend itself to being post in that exact position next to an angular line? Does Jason Statham only have one expression? Or do they actually want to associate their film with one of the most reviled movies of all time? Personally, I think they’re trying to bait me into giving them a good quote.
