Yahoo! Movies has released a new behind-the-scenes look at Universal's Death Race, which hits theaters August 22. Check out the featurette below.

Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, the action-thriller stars Jason Statham, Joan Allen, Tyrese Gibson, Ian McShane, Natalie Martinez and Jason Clarke.

The story centers on a penitentiary full of felons that has inspired the jailers to create a grisly pastime ripe for lucrative kickbacks. Now, adrenalized inmates, a global audience hungry for televised violence and a spectacular arena come together to form the Death Race.
