‘Death Wish’ Trailer: Eli Roth’s Latest Gets the ‘Grindhouse’ Treatment
Eli Roth‘s Death Wish is an ill-advised remake, but the film is essentially finished and ready to hit theaters sooner rather than later. In a new tongue-in-cheek attempt to sell the film to a new audience, a Grindhouse-inspired Death Wish trailer attempts to highlight the lighter side of shooting a bunch of people.
The last thing we all need right now is a new movie about an angry white guy buying a bunch of guns and mowing people down, but that won’t stop shock master Eli Roth. The Hostel director has helmed a remake of the 1974 Charles Bronson flick Death Wish, about a man who decides to take the law into his own hands when his family is attacked. Death Wish was originally set for a November 2017 release, but in the wake of the tragic Las Vegas shooting in October of 2017, Annapurna Pictures pushed the release back to 2018. Now, Roth and company have released a new Grindhouse-inspired trailer that attempts to make Death Wish look a lot more fun that it probably is. Check out the trailer below.
