Eli Roth’s ‘Death Wish’ Reboot Moves Release Date Back To 2018
It’s getting harder these days to find a weekend to release your film without direct competition and being just plain to crowded. The release date dance happens often these days and Eli Roth’s remake of ‘Death Wish’ is moving to a more suitable weekend. Originally slated to be released during the Thanksgiving Holiday which turns out to be a very crowed time to release the film so they have backed off a few months and will release the film on March 2nd, 2018. Death Wish doesn’t really feel like a Holiday film anyway, right?
Many have high hopes for this remake staring Bruce Willis after the first trailer dropped and made for very happy fans. It’s always cool to see genre directors step outside that box as well. Check out the trailer below.
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 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. An MGM production, Death Wish is set for release on November 22, 2017. It will be distributed in the U.S. by APR and internationally by Metro-Goldwyn- Mayer Pictures.
