Death Wish Full Movie

Death Wish『2018』® FULL MOVIE Online Download: Today’s Conjuring-loving audiences may have forgotten that James Wan delivered a bull’s eye of a Death Wish full movie remake in 2007’s Kevin Bacon-starring Death Sentence. Now, along comes Eli Roth to exclaim more loudly that he has remade the Charles Bronson vehicle (no one really thinks he is adapting Brian Garfield’s novel, right?) with Bruce Willis. In true stylistically bland Roth fashion, the promised product exceeds the delivered goods (see any movie in his oeuvre).

As trauma surgeon Paul Kersey, whose wife and daughter are killed and injured in a home invasion gone wrong, Willis again sleepwalks for another paycheck (think any of it was subsidized by the NRA?). Kersey should be a figure of grim determination and single-minded vengeance, not Willis’ sleepy charisma. Imagine if Vincent D’Onofrio, who languishes as Kersey’s ne’er-do-well, former baseball prospect brother, were cast as the lead. That film may have gotten further to the dark core of this outdated thriller; such crime-phobic movies feel so late-’70s, throwbacks to when Times Square was dingy and pornographic.

Joe Carnahan’s script wants to preach a bit; an odd gun-control message can be heard briefly spinning up. But the idea that Kersey has become more interested in doing violence—being an amalgam of judge, jury and executioner—than in avenging his family cannot find a solid handhold, thanks to a nearly fatal lack of emotion. Death Wish’s armed vigilante is not as simple and enjoyable a movie concept as Hollywood thinks it is. Were it so, they would have remade Dirty Harry by now.

Death Wish (2018)

A mild-mannered father is transformed into a killing machine after his family is torn apart by a violent act.

Bruce Willis’ “Death Wish” reboot has been pushed back from Nov. 22 to March 2.

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures launched a new distribution operation in August, coinciding with the release of Kathryn Bigelow’s historical drama “Detroit,” which will distribute the pic. The label’s second film, Ben Stiller comedy-drama “Brad’s Status,” has grossed $1.9 million in limited release since its Sept. 15 launch.

“Hostel” director Eli Roth helmed the “Death Wish” remake and former MGM co-chairman Roger Birnbaum is producing. The new “Death Wish” also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Kimberly Elise, Mike Epps, and Elisabeth Shue.

Paramount released the original “Death Wish,” starring Charles Bronson, in 1974 with Michael Winner directing and Dino De Laurentiis producing. The film was based on the Brian Garfield novel about vigilante Paul Kersey, who goes after criminals when his wife is murdered and his daughter is left catatonic after being sexually assaulted during a home invasion.

MGM’s Death Wish remake is dropping back to 2018. Deadline reports that Eli Roth’s Bruce Willis action vehicle will now bow in theaters on March 2 next year, in order to evacuate the crowded Thanksgiving season. Yeah, suuuuure. I’m certain it has nothing to do with the fact that an old white guy just killed 58 people and wounded more than 500, sparking conversations about gun culture, media violence, and toxic masculinity once again.

Director Eli Roth’s reimagining of the classic 1974 revenge thriller

The post Bruce Willis in the New Death Wish Poster appeared first on ComingSoon.net.

Originally scheduled for release on November 22 by Annapurna Pictures, MGM’s Eli Roth-directed remake of Death Wish now has a new weekend to call home.

Likely because of several other films releasing that date, including Polaroid and Coco, Roth’s Death Wish will now arrive on the big screen on March 2, 2018.

Bruce Willis stars as vigilante Paul Kersey in the remake.

In the film…

“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 deadly vigilante is a guardian angel or a grim reaper.”

Vincent D’Onofrio, Dean Norris and Mike Epps also star.

Beau Knapp (The Nice Guys, upcoming Death Wish), Jade Pettyjohn (School of Rock, upcoming Trial by Fire), Toby Huss (Halt and Catch Fire, upcoming LAbyrinth), Zach Villa (Dan Is Dead), James Jordan (Wind River), and Shamier Anderson (Shots Fired) have come aboard Karyn Kusama’s crime thriller, Destroyer, which stars Nicole Kidman. The film, written by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, is currently shooting in Los Angeles.

2017 is proving to be the year of Jack Kesy. Thought the young actor had already made a bit of a splash on FX’s “The Strain,” his breakthrough came earlier this year with his memorable performance as Roller on the first season of the addictive crime drama “Claws” and his star continues to rise with a number of movies coming in 2018 including an appearance in the Death Wish remake.
