Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures presents director Eli Roth's reimagining of the classic 1974 revenge thriller DEATH WISH. Fury and fate collide in the intense, action-thriller starring Bruce Willis, Vincent D'Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue, Camila Morrone, Dean Norris and Kimberly Elise. Charles Bronson starred in the original 1974 film, which spawned four sequels.
This is something I've been really looking forward too! Joe Carnahan (The Grey) penned the script for the remake, and their have been rumors that the film itself is really good!
Fingers crossed! Lets all check out the first trailer below:
Well, it doesn't look too bad, it has its moments. However it doesn't look great and for today's time, it just looks so generic. Surprisingly though, Bruce Willis looks as though he's having a blast. The real problem with this film seems to be director Eli Roth, who appears to be happy becoming a director who just collects a paycheck nowadays. Once he was a unique young director on the rise. Now he just doesn't seem to care, wish kind of sucks. All that being said, I'll still be checking this one out, for the hope that its a fun revengeful time at the cinema this November.

In case you missed the obvious plot, here is a lengthy synopsis:
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures presents director Eli Roth's reimagining of the classic 1974 revenge thriller Death Wish. 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 deadlyvigilante is a guardian angel or a grim reaper. Fury and fate collide in the intense, action-thriller Death Wish.
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.
Updated from the original novel by Brian Garfield, director Eli Roth and screenwriter Joe Carnahan's (The Grey, Narc) Death Wish also stars Vincent D'Onofrio (The Magnificent Seven, TV's Daredeviland Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas), Camila Morrone, Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) and Kimberly Elise (The Great Debaters). It's a knife's-edge portrayal that challenges our assumptions, and pushes our buttons.
By bringing the complex psychology of Brian Garfield's book up-to-the-moment and injecting new thrills and a stark, unflinchinglook at the American psyche in 2017, Eli Roth and Death Wish brings audiences to the height of unforgettable suspense.
Death Wish is set to hit theaters on November 22nd.
