Movies In Focus is looking forward to the old-school shenanigans of Eli Roth’s Death Wish. Roth has been bigging-up Bruce Willis‘ turn in the film as a ‘classic Willis role’ in the mould of Die Hard and Unbreakable. We’ll find out if that’s the case on 6 April – but in the meantime I’m digging these retro posters inspired the original Charles Bronson-Michael Winner joint.

Vertigo Releasing is delighted to present Eli Roth’s reimagining of the iconic 1974 revenge-thriller DEATH WISH. Dr Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city’s violence when he is confronted with it in his ER -that is until his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and 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 avenger is a guardian angel or a grim reaper.
Bruce Willis is at his best in the role of the ultimate hero Paul Kersey. Also starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Dean Norris and Kimberly Elise, DEATH WISH is a stark and unflinching look at the American psyche in 2018, adapted from the original novel by Brian Garfield and reimagined for a modern-day audience by director Eli Roth, screenwriter Joe Carnahan and producer Roger Birnbaum.
