If you’re like me, chances are you aren’t really thinking much about the upcoming Death Wish film from director Eli Roth. It’s based on a decades-old film, and stars Bruce Willis, and while I love Bruce Willis, I can’t help but feel like he phones it in on a consistent basis, and thanks to the first couple trailers, I had very interest in seeing the film.
Well, the studio may have been feeling that, because in a left field reveal, they revealed a red band grindhouse-type trailer for the flick. While I can’t say whether or not this actually makes me any more excited for the film, I can say that it at least makes for an interesting trailer.
The main problem here is that while film buffs like us may like the grindhouse aesthetic, the mid-2000s double feature from Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino pretty much proved that there wasn’t much of an audience for it, so I’m not sure if it’ll do them any good.
Below if the official synopsis for Death Wish:
“Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures presents director Eli Roth’s reimagining of the 1974 revenge thriller Death Wish. Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city’s violence as it’s 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 for 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. Fury and fate collide in the intense action-thriller Death Wish.”
