Death Wish Trailer: Bruce Willis Unleashes Vengeance and One-Liners

Watch: Bruce Willis is back in action - and Eli Roth directs him - in Death Wish

The original Death Wish, while criticized for being exploitative in its depiction of the brutal murder and rape of its protagonist's family and its lionization of vigilantism, has a legitimacy to its argument as a response to the rising crime of the era.

Here's a synopsis: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures presents director Eli Roth's reimagining of the classic 1974 revenge thriller "Death Wish". He used the TV series Moonlighting to get noticed, then really cemented his star status by playing heroic cop John McClane in the Die Hard franchise. Bruce Willis' portrayal of Paul Kersey is certainly different from Charles Bronson's, as Willis' brand of wit and wisecracks seems to have made its way into the script.

Eli Rith directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with Joe Carnahan, based upon the novel by Brian Garfield. For Roth, this is his first foray into the action genre after making his name with horror films like Cabin Fever, Hostel, and The Green Inferno. "I mean I really think this can be his 'Taken.' The fun is watching him go insane and watching someone slowly move the moral goal post". Directed by Eli Roth and produced by Sylvester Stallone and starring Bruce Willis the film takes numerous cues of the original film with a man taking justice into his own hands.

Britain's outspoken Prince Philip bows out of public life
He may, however, "still choose to attend certain public events from time to time", according to a statement from the Palace. Wednesday's parade in Buckingham Palace's forecourt was Prince Philip's 22,219th solo engagement since 1953.

One of the more fascinating remake/reboot films out there in Hollywood's pre-production ether is Death Wish. The remake co-stars Vincent D'Onofrio, Dean Norris, Kimberly Elise, and Mike Epps.

The Bruce Willis version of "Death Wish" opens in theaters November 22. So it's absolutely no wonder Eli Roth decided to remake it.
