If you were eager to see Eli Roth’s Death Wish re-boot during the holidays, you’re just going to have to wait until just before spring 2018.
The film starring Bruce Willis in the role that made Charles Bronson famous has moved it’s November reservation and pushed it to March of next year.
Deadline.com is reporting that the vigilante bloodbath had already decided to make the switch even before Universal’s Polaroid plopped down beside them on the calendar.
That may be a good thing. Polaroid will have to compete with a Disney/Pixar release Coco, which as you know during the holidays is box office gold.
Death Wish’s new drop date will bout against the less kid-friendly films Red Sparrow, Alpha, and New Line/Warner Bros.’ comedy Game Night.
Death Wish follows the bloody trail of Paul Kersey (Willis), a man out to take revenge on the assailants who killed his wife and raped his daughter. He becomes a celebrity of sorts nicknamed “The Grim Reaper.”
