Don't play this with the kids around. Also, unless you work somewhere cool, you can probably consider this NSFW (not-safe-for-work) as well. Those helpful tips out of the way, today brings a third trailer for MGM's DEATH WISH remake, and this time around the Eli Roth-directed action flick is getting the GRINDHOUSE treatment. With a new, 70's-style trailer that recalls the 2007 Tarantino/Rodriguez collaboration to which Roth contributed the infamous "Thanksgiving," you can see the splatter-iffic action below. Again, don't show it to the kids. There's brains involved.
I support vigilante justice... if done properly. Of course, such behavior is technically still illegal, but I think it's a reflection of our society that makes characters like Batman and The Punisher so empowering and inspiring. Now, from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures comes director Eli Roth’s reimagining of the 1974 revenge thriller Death Wish - a film that epitomized a certain brand of vigilante action. Bruce Willis stars as Dr. Paul Kersey - "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." Check out the latest trailer below!
When DIE HARD hit theaters in the summer of 1988, no one would've expected that the film would become a perennial favorite... at Christmastime. Released in July, but with the action taking place on Christmas Eve, DIE HARD became a cultural phenomenon that launched a franchise, turned Bruce Willis into an action hero, and brought some boom to the holiday season. The Christmas vibe was back when DIE HARD 2 arrived in 1990, and while the next three installments avoided seasonality, those first two movies have forever been required holiday viewing for me (and many others). For 2015, and released in the same week that it was revealed that Len Wiseman would be helming a prequel entitled DIE HARD: YEAR ONE, the first five films in the DIE HARD franchise have been re-issued on Blu-ray and Digital HD in an ultimate edition - NAKATOMI PLAZA: DIE HARD COLLECTION. This exciting new set is a featured item in my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide!
For the first time since 1995's DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE, I have missed out on seeing a DIE HARD film on the big screen. My wife wasn't keen on "wasting" a date night on A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD when it arrived in theaters this past Valentine's Day, and as a work-at-home Dad, I just don't have much time to hit the theater. Now, the fifth installment of the popular franchise will arrive on Digital HD on May 14 and on Blu-ray and DVD June 4 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. They hit The Rock Father with all the specs earlier today, and I'm sharing them with you below...
