20th Century Fox has released the new trailer for James Wan’s (SAW) Death Sentence. The film stars Kevin Bacon as John Hume, a local business manager of Boston, a peaceful, calm and very caring man with the perfect family and life. But all that changes one night when his eldest son is murdered during a hold-up. Transformed by grief, Hume eventually turns to violence, revenge, and vigilantism. He vows to kill each perpetrator on the streets who was involved in the murder of his son, while at the same time the gang vows their own revenge agenda. There is a lack of vigilante movies in Hollywood today, and this looks interesting. Wan exploded onto the scene with SAW, and hasn’t done too much since. So I’m really excited to see what else he can do. We’ve been invited to a special breakfast with Wan in a couple weeks, so look for a report on that later. The film hits theaters on August 31st. Check out the trailer after the jump.
