District B13 is a very good waypoint for viewers to get into the sport, or at least admire it for what it is. The good thing about it is that it has a very interesting story to go along with it, and that always helps.
Fans of the original were obviously overjoyed when Banlieue 14 was announced. So far, several of the key cast members are credited to be appearing in the sequel, and it has a 2009 release date as of this moment.
The movie began filming in August of this year in Serbia, and is still underway. Always good to hear is that Luc Besson will have a part in the sequel, as writer.
