'Death Wish' Trailer: Bruce Willis Is Out for Revenge in Eli Roth's Remake

Watch: Bruce Willis is back in action - and Eli Roth directs him - in Death Wish

The original Death Wish, while criticized for being exploitative in its depiction of the brutal murder and rape of its protagonist's family and its lionization of vigilantism, has a legitimacy to its argument as a response to the rising crime of the era.

Bruce Willis is in full steely eyed, low-rumbly vigilante mode in the trailer for Eli Roth's "Death Wish", which paints our city as a hellscape only one man can fix. He used the TV series Moonlighting to get noticed, then really cemented his star status by playing heroic cop John McClane in the Die Hard franchise. That can be good or bad, depending if you're coming into this with expectations of a grandiouse, Greek tragedy-type, drama or just an unapologetic, balls-to-the-wall action flick, in this case one that's setting itself to the testosterone-pumping tune of AC/DC's "Back in Black".

A remake of the 1974 revenge-action film starring Charles Bronson, the updated version relocates the story to Chicago, following a well-worn path of people who understand little about the city's problems and exploiting that for gain. Roth is certainly a curious choice to direct, and indeed Joe Carnahan was originally in line to direct this remake from his own script before parting ways over creative differences. The original Death Wish received four sequels (all of which starred Bronson) over the course of the next two decades.

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.

The film is set to hit theaters November 22.
