Trailer & images from Eli Roth’s ‘Death Wish’

by Phil Wheat

Here’s your first look at Bruce Willis in the MGM/Paramount remake of >Death Wish, which also stars 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.

It will be interesting to see how this redux of the 1974 Michael Winner / Charles Bronson film is received when it’s released later this year – especially given how it looks, at least in the trailer below, that the film will also incorporate who the 24 hour news cycle can make celebrity out of notoriety.
