Things just got a whole lot more interesting with Eli Roth’s upcoming remake of Death Wish starring Bruce Willis. The Red Band trailer was recently released, and it has been given the full grindhouse treatment.
I have to say, I was excited about this movie before I even saw this trailer. I am a huge fan of the original franchise, and loved the early trailers for this version. The Red Band trailer makes it look ten times better than before.
I’ll warn you, this one is gory as hell, so don’t watch if you are sensitive to excessive violence.
Now, I’m not sure if the entire movie is getting a grindhouse makeover, or if they just did this for the trailer. I think if they did this for the whole movie, it would be amazing. I know a lot of people are tired of remakes, myself included, but this one looks like it is going to be worth watching. Here is the film’s synopsis:
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures presents director Eli Roth’s reimagining of the 1974 revenge thriller Death Wish. Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city’s violence as it’s rushed into his ER – until his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and college-age daughter (Camila Morrone) are viciously attacked in their suburban home. With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts for his family’s assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media’s attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel…or a grim reaper. Fury and fate collide in the intense action-thriller Death Wish. MGM will release Death Wish nationwide on March 2, 2018.
We’ll keep an eye out for any new updates. What do you think? Are you excited for the new Death Wish?
