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, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts his family’s assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media’s attention, the city wonders if this deadlyvigilante is a guardian angel or a grim reaper. Fury and fate collide in the intense, action-thriller Death Wish.
Paul Kersey becomes a divided person: A man who saves lives, and a man who takes them; a husband and father trying to take care of his family, and a shadowy figure fighting Chicago crime; a surgeon extracting bullets from suspects’ bodies, and the vigilante called “The Grim Reaper” who detectives are quickly closing in on.
Updated from the original novel by Brian Garfield, director Eli Roth and screenwriter Joe Carnahan’s (The Grey, Narc) Death Wish also stars Vincent D’Onofrio (The Magnificent Seven, TV’s Daredeviland Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas), Camila Morrone, Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) and Kimberly Elise (The Great Debaters). It’s a knife’s-edge portrayal that challenges our assumptions, and pushes our buttons.
By bringing the complex psychology of Brian Garfield’s book up-to-the-moment and injecting new thrills and a stark, unflinchinglook at the American psyche in 2017, Eli Roth and Death Wish brings audiences to the height of unforgettable suspense.

Today released a new image of Jon Bernthal as The Punisher. Also just a simple, Marvel’s The Punisher premieres globally █████ 2017, only on Netflix. So we know it will be this year but not letting us know what month. But with only 4 months left in the year we don’t have long to wait.
In the picture below you can see Frank happy and looking to spread joy to all those who piss him off.
Also is you have not watch The Defenders and saw that little trailer of The Punisher I also have that for you.
On the latest The Pop Culture Cafe Scott and I talk about this short film. If you are a fan of the “Ghost In The Shell” or “Appleseed” you may notice that some of the design of the robots have the look for these series.
On a post-apocalyptic Earth, Leila Dawn (Natalie Floyd), is the only human survivor. Raised by Robots after humanity abandoned the planet they destroyed with nuclear warfare, Leila cannot forget her parents nor ignore her yearning to find other organic life. A hunt she sets out on with Swat Team robot, Marker (Lex Cassar), leads Leila to discover a human disguised as Robot, Ray (Jake Lyall), and the reality she’s been denied-a reality that sparks her ultimate quest. PLUG is a short film from acclaimed science-fiction film art director, David Levy (Tron Legacy, Prometheus, Enders Game, Tomorrow Land). It is the first installment of Levy’s yet to be produced epic series/feature, which follows Leila on her quest to reunite with humanity and the impossible choices she must make about her allegiances – Human or Robot.
If you have listening to The Pop Culture Cafe podcast(if not shame on you) Scott and I talked about the “My Friend Dahmer”. Well if you have not seen it then here you go ladies and gents.
Before Jeffrey Dahmer became a notorious serial killer, he was a shy, alcoholic teen who never quite fit in. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Derf Backderf, this is the true, haunting story of Jeffrey Dahmer in high school.
If Sony had of just called this movie “Welcome to the Jungle “they probably would have saved themselves a tonne of grief. The word Jumanji conjures up images and memories of late comedic icon Robin Williams and that’s something that will probably not help this film. Many tweets I’ve read about these trailers have been negative .Many for no reason I feel.
The Trailer begins almost as an Homage to “The Breakfast Club” in that 4 students of diverse back grounds get to spend some time in detention. I’m not completely sure this was not a coincidence. They actually gave a little bit more away in this trailer then I wanted to see.Sometimes it’s not a bad thing to keep a surprise how people get from one place to another.
Soon we’re cranking it up with strains of Guns and Roses “Welcome to the Jungle “booming through the scenes. Guns and Roses works with practically every trailer so not reading too much into the movies quality here.
The movies stars The Rock, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan. Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), also signed on for it and he usually doesn’t do scripts unless there is something there so that interests me . Most of the Jokes in the Trailers land, and Jack Black channeling a lovely blonde seems like it might have a few chuckles from the trailer. You are, of course going to see many, many dangerous animals along the way in all their CGI majesty
I found the International Trailer did a better job of selling the movie for me.These folks seem like they had a good time making the film and poking some fun at their character stereotypes so that to me is a plus. If people go in to watch the movie without thinking of Robin Williams they will probably enjoy the movie much more. All the man wanted to do was make you smile. Why not try it?
It’s releasing Dec.22nd and will probably face some pretty rough competition at that time(The Last Jedi drops the week before) but it might be effective counter programming. I say cautiously. Domestic and International Trailers are below. Thanks for reading
I have fallen off keeping up with all the new video games coming out. I use to regularly watch E3 every year. So it is nice to see a game that gets me excited to sit down and play again.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus sure does look like it will be the game for me. Bethseda rolled out the trailer at this years E3 and WOW. I have been a fan of the Wolfenstein games for years. I purchase Wolfenstien: The New Order well to be frank because it was cheap. Dam what a great game. Now from this excellent trailer combining live action and action from the game dam this looks fun.
B.J. Blazkowicz is still alive and with new friends, toys and new abilities. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus takes place in 1961. Players will journey from Roswell, New Mexico to gator-filled New Orleans to post-nuclear New York.
“Equip an arsenal of badass guns, and unleash new abilities to blast your way through legions of advanced Nazi soldiers, cyborgs, and über soldiers in this definitive first-person shooter,” Bethesda said in an official announcement.
