It seems they’re taking a turn with the marketing for the re-make of Death Wish. The first few trailers have been incredible generic, so maybe it was time to ramp this thing up a bit. Director Eli Roth released a new trailer today, and it appears to be a red band trailer. So now we get to show off all violence we’re going to get to see.

So the movie they’re pushing now appears to be going for more of grindhouse style — which is fine, if that’s the movie we’re getting, but thus far it seems a little unclear. Also, if this type of movie is your thing, you probably watched The Punisher on Netflix a couple of months ago. Maybe this is going to be a little more faster paced, but there hasn’t been anything in this movie that looks like it’s going to separate it from any other “man takes on crime” movie we’ve seen before.
Summary: A mild-mannered father is transformed into a killing machine after his family is torn apart by a violent act.
Death Wish, directed by Eli Roth, will star Bruce Willis, Vincent D’Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue, Jack Kesy, and Dean Norris. It will be released on March 8th.
