Revenge is in the air, and Eli Roth has resurrected the Death Wish franchise with Bruce Willis stepping into the Charles Bronson role from the 1974 Michael Winner film. He is joined by Vincent D’Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue and Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris in the key roles. Certainly having Roth behind the camera directing a Joe Carnahan adaptation would certainly have helped to bring in the fine cast, and today the film sees the insides of the UK’s picture houses.
To give you a taste of what’s in store we have an exclusive clip featuring Willis and D’Onofrio at a critical point of Willis’ character’s journey.
Take a look.
Death Wish is out now.
