MGM Pictures released the first trailer to ‘Death Wish’ remake starring Bruce Willis Thursday morning. Filmmaker Eli Roth looks to start a conversation about violence with an intense display of it.
About the film:
Dr. Paul Kersey is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of Chicago violence when it is rushed into his ER – until his wife and college-age daughter are viciously attacked in their suburban home. With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts his family’s assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media’s attention, the city wonders if this deadly vigilante is a guardian angel or a grim reaper. Fury and fate collide in the intense, action-thriller
Paul Kersey becomes a divided person: A man who saves lives, and a man who takes them; a husband and father trying to take care of his family, and a shadowy figure fighting Chicago crime; a surgeon extracting bullets from suspects’ bodies, and the vigilante called “The Grim Reaper” who detectives are quickly closing in on.
‘Death Wish’ is based on the novel by Brian Garfield. Charles Bronson played the title charcter in the 1974 version.
Check out the orginal trailer.
The remake is directed by Eli Roth from a screenplay by Joe Carnahan. ‘Death Wish’ stars Bruce Willis, Elisabeth Shue, Camila Morrone, Vincent D’Onofrio, Dean Norris, and Kimberly Elise.
‘Death Wish’ hits theaters on November 22.
