UPDATED: ‘Death Wish’ gets 2 “grindhouse” style posters!

by Phil Wheat

Check out this brand new “Grindhouse/Retro” poster (to accompany the previous grindhouse trailer) for the MGM/Paramount remake of Death Wish, which stars Bruce Willis in the role of Paul Kersey – originally made famous by Charles Bronson – alongside Vincent D’Onofrio, Kimberly Elise, Mike Epps, and Elisabeth Shue.

Directed by Eli Roth (Knock Knock, Hostel) from a screenplay by Joe Carnahan, the film follows Paul Kersey (Willis) whose life is destroyed by a violent crime against his wife and daughter. Frustrated the bad guys were not brought to justice for the violence and degradation the thugs inflicted on his family, he starts hunting for the perpetrators himself.

Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of Chicago violence when it is 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 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.

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 released in the US on March 2nd; with a UK release date set for April 6th.
