Bruce Willis' Death Wish remake gets a gritty Grindhouse-style trailer

If there was ever a way to make Eli Roth's upcoming DEATH WISH remake starring Bruce Willis appear more badass, giving the film's trailer a grindhouse overhaul is certainly a great way to go. Complete with cigarette burns, skipped frames, a gritty filter, and a nostalgic, booming voice-over, this new DEATH WISH trailer is bound to put a smile on the faces of fans who adore the salacious schlock of old school cinema.

In DEATH WISH, Bruce Willis plays Dr. Paul Kersey, a man who becomes a vigilante after he finds his wife murdered and his daughter is brutally attacked by robbers. Fueled by an unquenchable thirst for revenge, Kersey sets out to extract his own brand of justice on the lowlives who attacked those dearest to him. Heartless assholes beware, as Kersey will stop at nothing until each and every one of you is but a crimson puddle on the broken city streets.

Originally, the remake was meant to be directed by Sylvester Stallone, with the sneer-lipped actor also in-line to star as the action vehicle's vengeful lead. Years later, it was announced that Stallone would be stepping away from the project due to "creative differences." After Stallone, both filmmakers Joe Carnahan and Gerardo Naranjo did their best to get production up and running on DEATH WISH, but the project eventually stalled out until 2016, when Eli Roth came aboard.

Now, by way of Mirror, Roth will present his version of the 1974 Charles Bronson-starring revenge thriller, with Bruce Willis, Elisabeth Shue, Vincent D'Onofrio, Mike Epps, Dean Norris and Jack Kesy all attached to star. Keep your eyes peeled and your nose clean, because the doctor is in, and his perscription is pure, unfiltered pain.

Eli Roth's DEATH WISH will arrive in theaters on March 2nd.
