Movies - Death Wish : be ready for an amazing soundtrack

  • 19 février 2018

    Fury and fate are fickle, dangerous partners. We can’t predict their arrival, and we can never know how far from – or how close to – our true selves they’ll take us. Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) becomes inextricably linked with both fury and fate before he discovers exactly who and what he is: a man seeking justice working outside the law. That stark, dramatic premise propels Eli Roth’s action-filled reimagination of Death Wish into a new era, with themes of crime, punishment, and the power to fight back at the forefront of the narrative.

    The story was first told in Brian Garfield’s 1972 novel of the same name, and then in director Michael Winner’s 1974 landmark action drama, starring Charles Bronson and adapted by Oscar nominee Wendell Mayes. For the 2018 adaption, screenwriter Joe Carnahan (writer-director of Narc, Smokin’ Aces, The Grey) and director Eli Roth (Hostel, Hostel: Part II, The Green Inferno) teamed up with Bruce Willis, one of cinema’s most important and genre-expanding action stars, to look at Death Wish with fresh eyes. “We dug in deep to crack the story and see how we could tell a story that was relatable to audiences today,” says producer Roger Birnbaum, who put this new version of Death Wish together with associate producer Stephen J. Eads and executive producer Ilona Herzberg. “We knew we couldn’t tell the same story as in the early ’70s. So much is different in our country right now. Paul Kersey is pushed to violence by his frustrations about the lack of resources that the police department have. Only when a clue actually lands in his lap does he decide to go after the criminals who attacked his family.” Says Roth, “People have fantasies about cleaning up the streets, taking care of crime, and being a crime fighter. That’s one of the reasons superhero movies are so popular. It’s that idea that ordinary people have the power to stop crime and fight evil.”

    Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures presents director Eli Roth’s reimagining of the 1974 revenge thriller Death Wish.
    Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city’s violence as it’s rushed into his ER – until his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and college-age daughter (Camila Morrone) are viciously attacked in their suburban home. With the police overloaded with crimes, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts for 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. Fury and fate collide in the intense action-thriller Death Wish.
