(Aton) The trailer for the ‘Death Wish‘ remake has finally landed. The Eli Roth-directed vehicle stars Bruce Willis as Dr. Paul Kersey, a Chicago surgeon who goes out for revenge when his wife, (Elizabeth Shue) and daughter (Camila Morrone) are attacked in a vicious home invasion.
The original ‘Death Wish‘, which stared Charles Bronson and spawned four sequels, is considered to be a classic among revenge flicks, if not cult status at the least. The remake was written by Joe Carnahan, and will mark Roth’s first venture into the action/revenge genre. Carnahan was originally set to direct, but after creative differences Roth stepped in to helm the picture.
Here’s the official synopsis for the remake:
- Taylor Salan
For many film fans, the name Paul Kersey is synonymous with Charles Bronson, but Bruce Willis is breathing new life into the role in Eli Roth's reimagining of Death Wish, which is teased in a new trailer packed with bullet-riddled vengeance and plenty of AC/DC.
MGM will release the new Death Wish film in theaters on November 22nd. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more details and check out the official trailer and poster below. Are you looking forward to a new take on Death Wish?
"Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures presents director Eli Roth's reimagining of the classic 1974 revenge thriller Death Wish. Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of Chicago violence when it is 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, »

The original film starred Charles Bronson and it became his most famous role when he was age 52. He played Paul Kersey, a successful New York architect who turns into a crime-fighting vigilante after his wife is murdered and his daughter sexually assaulted. This successful movie spawned various sequels over the next two decades, all starring Bronson. (Trailer)

MGM has released the first Death Wish trailer. Eli Roth’s upcoming remake stars Bruce Willis as Paul Kersey, a mild-mannered Chicago architect who goes on a quest for bloody revenge after his wife (Elizabeth Shue) and daughter (Camila Morrone) are the victims of a violent home invasion.

After reveling in the horror genre for virtually all of his directorial career, Eli Roth is switching gears slightly with his next project as he heads into action-thriller territory with a remake of 1974’s Death Wish. Scripted by Joe Carnahan and starring Bruce Willis, the first trailer has now arrived ahead of a November release.
“We wanted to bring back that great, classic Bruce Willis we all know and love and just do a fun, badass update of a revered classic,” Roth told Yahoo! Movies. “I wanted to bring Bruce back to that Fifth Element, Unbreakable, Die Hard glory and have him craft another iconic performance, and I really think he did it. I mean I really think this can be his Taken. The fun is watching him go crazy and watching someone slowly move the moral goal post.”

Fox isn't slowing down with the X-Men movies anytime soon. The studio is going to be releasing three Marvel comic book movies next year for the first time ever and the future looks quite full as well. The studio has just locked down release dates for six as-of-yet unrevealed Marvel movies through 2021. The question now becomes, what are they going to be?
As reported by Collider, Fox has set release dates on June 7, 2019, November 22, 2019, March 13, 2020, June 26, 2020, October 2, 2020, and March 5, 2021. Easily the most interesting part of that slate is the fact that Fox is going to release another three movies in 2020. Marvel Studios only just this year started doing that for the first time and part of that had to do with the fact that they are releasing Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is a co-production between Marvel and Sony. Does Fox feel like they've finally cracked the code beyond the main X-Men franchise? »
White will team with his spouse and writing partner Juliet Snowden to pen the script. Snowden is also executive producing.
“Forgotten” is an English-language adaptation of the 2012 German supernatural thriller “Du Hast Es Versprochen,” set on a remote island where two women reunite at a childhood vacation home. It explores themes of fear and friendship as the pair find themselves haunted by the ghost of a girl from their past.
White made his directing debut on 2014’s “Ouija,” helming from a script he co-wrote with Snowden. Produced by Jason Blum and Michael Bay, “Ouija” was a major financial success for Universal as it grossed more than $100 million worldwide on a $5 million budget »

Meet Ben Payne and Ashley Martin. The former is a studious journalist departing from Salt Lake City airport to attend a medical conference, though severe weather conditions force him to take the road (flightpath?) less traveled and board a dinky charter plane. He isn’t the only one, as Ashley is also eager to return home to reunite with her fiancé. The two strangers then find themselves crammed into a small aircraft, but tragedy strikes when their pilot suffers a heart attack mid-flight, bringing their plane crashing down into the icy High Uintas Wilderness.
And that’s where The Mountain Between Us gets going in earnest. Charles Martin’s 2011 page-turner was hailed as a touching story of two strangers forced into a desperate life-or-death situation, one that is as much about the emotional journey as it is the literal pilgrimage that Ben and Ashley must endure.

Here’s the official synopsis from the source material, the novel from Charles Martin.
On a stormy winter night, two strangers wait for a flight at the Salt Lake City airport. Ashley Knox is an attractive, successful writer, who is flying East for her much anticipated wedding. Dr. Ben Payne has just wrapped up a medical conference and is also eager to get back East for a slate of surgeries he has scheduled for the following day. When the last outgoing flight is cancelled due to a broken de-icer and a forthcoming storm, Ben finds a charter plane that can take him around the storm and drop him in Denver to catch a connection. And when the pilot says »

It’s going on six years since Charles Martin’s enthralling page-turner The Mountain Between Us was earmarked for a big-screen adaptation and in that time, 20th Century Fox considered a raft of Hollywood talent to anchor Martin’s story of survival, romance, and the unwavering power of the human spirit.
Toward the beginning of pre-production, Alien: Covenant‘s Michael Fassbender flirted with the project, before being replaced by Charlie Hunnam on Fox’s wishlist. Those negotiations didn’t result in any official deal – ditto for Rosamund Pike – and it was only last year when 20th Century Fox finally settled on its two leading stars: Kate Winslet and Idris Elba. Recruiting an Oscar-winner and a magnetic screen presence in Elba? We’d venture that the prolonged wait has been worth it.

The Mummy hits theatres June 9th and is the first monster movie of Universal’s new Monster Universe. This “shared universe” will include rebooted versions of original monster movies including Dracula, Wolf Man, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Van Helsing, and the Invisible Man.
Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond, Kingsman: The Secret Service) plays the title monster in The Mummy and from what we’ve seen in trailers we can’t imagine anyone else in the role. Universal has already cast Johnny Depp as the Invisible Man and Javier Bardem as Frankenstein in upcoming remakes… but that still leaves plenty of monsters to be cast. So, we’ve taken the liberty of "fantasy casting" the remaining monsters with actors/actresses we think would be perfect for the roles. »

With the success of both Deadpool and Logan, doing R-rated adaptations seems to be an emerging trend. So far, this has largely been relegated to the world of comic book movies, but it looks like it may be expanding to the world of video game adaptations as well, assuming producer Adi Shankar gets his way. So what video game does he want to turn into a violent, R-rated movie? Naturally, it is Mega Man.
The producer, who worked on movies like The Grey and Dredd, recently spoke with Wpg about some of his currently in-the-works projects, as well as some things he would like to see happen in the future. It turns out that one thing he really wants to do is bring Mega Man to the big screen, which is reasonable enough, given the popularity and longevity of the video game series. Only, he sees it as a "hard-r" movie. »
Remember the unofficial short film “Power/Rangers” that came out in 2015? Well, now the producer of the dark and violent reimagining of the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” Adi Shankar, wants to make the film adaptation of the classic “Mega Man” video game franchise. “I’d love to do a hard-r ‘Mega Man,'” Shankar said in an interview with Wwg.

The self-described “massive gamer” is now producing a new animated series for Netflix based on the dark fantasy video game series “Castlevania,” set for release later this year on the streaming giant. “If I’m not a fan of something and I don’t organically understand what is cool about it, then I’m simply not going to get involved,” he said. “Even though I have one foot in the door in Hollywood, I’m not trying to rape and pillage culture for profit. »

The X-Men Cinematic Universe is definitely a unique beast among the superhero universes. Marvel Studios pioneered the idea of shared universes, and since 2008, things have been relatively straightforward in that world. The same could be said of the DC Extended Universe. While the future of the film franchise is still getting shuffled around after Justice League, the actual narrative structure of the movies are easy enough to follow.
The same can not be said of the X-Men films. While the first three films were simple sequels to one another, things were first thrown out of wack with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Things got more convoluted when X-Men: Days of Future Past attempted to merge the timelines, but only more questions came as a result. Several films later, we now have a whole new era of X-Men films on the horizon, and they all occur at potentially different points in time.

It appears that the dream of a Joe Carnahan-directed Bad Boys movie has gone the way of all Joe Carnahan projects. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the writer-director has dropped out of helming Bad Boys For Life, possibly for the same reason why Carnahan usually drops out of projects: “creative differences.” The studio is still hoping to start filming the long-delayed sequel to Michael Bay’s dumbest movie in the fall to meet a November 8, 2018 release date.
Over the years, Carnahan has developed an enviable portfolio of unrealized projects, including a revisionist remake of Death Wish (he doesn’t have kind words for Eli Roth’s more straightforward version), an adaptation of James Ellroy’s White Jazz, and a film based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s comics series Preacher, since made into an AMC series. His last theatrical release was 2011’s The Grey—a great ...

The saga of Bad Boys 3, tentatively titled Bad Boys For Life, has been along one, with fans of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s wise cracking, property destroying cops Mike Lowery and Marcus Bennett waiting over a decade for another installment. We were always told it was coming, and it finally seemed to be set in stone when Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smoking’ Aces, The A-Team, The Grey) signed onto director, with production slated to begin this Autumn for a November 8th 2017 release date. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Carnahan has left the project due to either scheduling conflicts (which makes sense since he is writing the big screen adaption of video game Uncharted, Fox’s upcoming X-Force, and writing and directing The Raid remake) or, that old chestnut, ‘creative differences’. This once again puts the status of the project up in the air, and I personally feel »

Some worrying news for Bad Boys 3, or Bad Boys For Life, as it’s being called, coming in tonight. The Hollywood Reporter is telling us that the project, which has had a fair amount of trouble getting off the ground, has lost director Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-Team). The reason for his departure his unclear, but it’s either a scheduling conflict or creative differences, depending on who you want to believe.
Regardless, it’s a huge loss for the threequel and is now yet another setback that it has to face. Filming was set to get underway this fall for a November 8th, 2018 release, but with Carnahan now gone, that may change. Thankfully, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are still on board to reprise their roles, and the studio is said to already be looking for someone to step behind the camera. They may rework Carnahan’s script, »

Sony had no comment on the exit. The studio has three possible director candidates for the Will Smith-Martin Lawrence comedy, which was titled “Bad Boys for Life” in August and pushed back to a Nov. 8, 2018 release date. Carnahan had written the most recent draft of the script.
The movie would reteam Smith and Lawrence as the freewheeling Miami narcotics detectives who starred in the first two movies in 1995 and 2003, both directed by Michael Bay. Jerry Bruckheimer is returning as producer with plot details currently under wraps.
Carnahan is developing an English-language remake of Indonesian action movie “The Raid.”
The first film, which was also produced by the late Don Simpson with Bruckheimer, grossed more than $140 million worldwide and made Smith into a star. “Bad Boys II” grossed more than $270 million worldwide. »
