CryptTV released a new Grindhouse-style “red-band” (R rating) trailer for MGM’s upcoming remake of the 1974 Charles Bronson classic revenge thriller Death Wish. The new film is directed by Eli Roth, written by Joe Carnahan, and stars Bruce Willis, Elisabeth Shue, and Vincent D’Onofrio. Death Wish hits theaters on Friday, March 2nd.
Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city’s 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 avenger 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 crime; a surgeon extracting bullets from suspects’ bodies, and a man seeking justice that detectives are quickly closing in on.
