Bruce Willis takes justice to the streets in first Death Wish trailer

The original DEATH WISH with Charles Bronson came out in the 70’s when crime in the big cities was at an all-time high. It’s now 2017, and thinks may not have changed all that much for people in certain cities. Now a new spin on the story of a man ( Bruce Willis ) getting revenge for the death of his wife, and then dishing his vigilante actions on Chicago’s...

Bruce Willis seeks vengeance in first photos from Eli Roth's Death Wish

I've always been a fan of Charles Bronson , but for whatever reason, I didn't get around to checking out the DEATH WISH franchise until just a few years ago. Before the series quickly turned Bronson's character of Paul Kersey into a one-man army capable of dispatching scores of baddies, the first film presented a mild-mannered character who abhorred violence and hadn't...

MGM's remake of Charles Bronson 's DEATH WISH has certainly had its ups and downs over the years; Joe Carnahan (THE GREY) was originally tapped to write and direct the remake, but when the studio began pushing for a more action-oriented story as well as putting Bruce Willis in the lead role, Carnahan walked, but not before sending off a rather harshly worded e-mail to MGM...

Beau Knapp cast as main villain in Eli Roth's Death Wish remake

But this one seems particularly unnecessary, especially with Bruce "When's Lunch" Willis as your star. Though I am a...

Vincent D'Onofrio to join Bruce Willis in Eli Roth's Death Wish remake

I've got an incredible soft spot for Charles Bronson 's DEATH WISH series, none of which could be called "good" movies, although I'm sure an argument could be made for the first installment, but watching Bronson dispatch bad guys in increasingly ridiculous ways throughout the franchise has provided me with much entertainment. A remake of the film, said to skew...

Big Bad Wolves directors walk from the Bruce Willis Death Wish remake

Earlier this year, it was announced that MGM had hired BIG BAD WOLVES directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado to helm their DEATH WISH remake starring Bruce Willis . Given that Willis has already signed off on the script, MGM had a projected release date in mind that didn't given the directors much breathing room.

Joe Carnahan's profanity laced email to MGM President regarding the Death Wish remake is priceless

Oh, Joe Carnahan , what are we going to do with you? The notoriously outspoken filmmaker has long been a fan favorite thanks to his films NARC, THE A-TEAM, SMOKIN' ACES, and THE GREY which all elevate action movies above the rest of the crop.
