Reprisal Trailer

Have you heard of Acts of Violence, First Kill, Marauders, Extraction, Vice or The Prince? They’re all Bruce Willis action thrillers that you’ve likely forgotten about or never even heard of, and they’re all movies that have come out within the last four years. That just goes to show you how often Bruce Willis is churning out forgettable fodder for action-hungry audiences who will watch anything while eating a Little Caesar’s pizza. Now we can add one more of those movies to the list.

Reprisal actually features Frank Grillo in the lead as a bank manager who has a little bit of PTSD from a robbery at his bank that resulted in the death of a co-worker. And who ends up helping him figure out who is behind a string of bank robberies in the area? That’s right, it’s Detective Bruce Willis, and he’s got a shotgun and stuff, so look out. Read More »

Bruce Willis Roast

Every now and then, Comedy Central will take time to roast a typically B-list celebrity who is usually an easy target. The likes of Pamela Anderson, Larry the Cable Guy, Charlie Sheen, Flavor Flav, Joan Rivers, and more have all been the target of some hard-hitting jokes. More recently Comedy Central has mocked some higher profile celebrities like James Franco and Justin Bieber, and they’ve just landed another big name actor to sit in the hot seat.

Bruce Willis has been announced as the next celebrity to get roasted on Comedy Central. And with a long career that includes outstanding movies like Die Hard and awful movies like A Good Day to Die Hard, this should be a pretty fantastic roast. Read More »

death wish clip

We may not need a Death Wish remake, but we’re getting one anyway. Eli Roth helms the updated revenge-thriller, which stars Bruce Willis as an angry man who takes the law into his own hands. In the first official Death Wish clip, Willis’ character very calmly decides to shove his daughter into a crawlspace.

Eli Roth‘s Death Wish is an ill-advised remake, but the film is essentially finished and ready to hit theaters sooner rather than later. In a new tongue-in-cheek attempt to sell the film to a new audience, a Grindhouse-inspired Death Wish trailer attempts to highlight the lighter side of shooting a bunch of people.

death wish trailer

Bruce Willis with a gun is perhaps one of the most familiar images we could see on the big screen. But there is something quietly discomfiting about Willis wielding a gun in Eli Roth‘s remake of the 1974 Charles Bronson revenge thriller Death Wish.

Perhaps it’s the remarkably unsubtle way that Roth portrays a man dealing with grief after his wife was killed and his daughter rendered comatose by home invaders, producing a trigger-happy thriller about the glories of vigilantism. Perhaps it’s the terrible timing with the U.S. still in disarray over gun laws and mass shootings. But hey, at least we get to see Bruce Willis do what he does best.

glass unbreakable actors

M. Night Shyamalan is pulling out all the stops for his next film, Glass, and connecting it to Unbreakable in more ways than one. As the filmmaker prepares to start production in Philadelphia, his latest seems like a culmination of everything he’s learned up until now. It finds him returning to Unbreakable, one of his best movies and combining it with his most recent hit Split. And now the Unbreakable connection has only been strengthened, as word has arrived that Shyamalan has added two Unbreakable actors in Glass. See the Unbreakable sequel casting below.

unbreakable

In a month’s time, M. Night Shyamalan will begin shooting a sequel we’ve been wanted for years. Shyamalan will complete a trilogy that started with Unbreakable and continued with Split. The final chapter, Glass, brings the heroic David Dunn (Bruce Willis), the villainous Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) and his multiple personalities together for what Shyamalan calls a “crazy comic book thriller.” The director has revealed few details about the sequel, but a new plot synopsis shines some more light on what to expect from Glass.

Below, check out the Glass synopsis.

Death Wish Remake Trailer

You know the old stand-by story about a man losing a loved one thanks to the activities of some ruthless criminals who goes on a wave of revenge to take down the people responsible. It’s a cinematic trope of action movies, and somehow, it’s still done in a fresh way with movies like John Wick. But it looks like Bruce Willis‘ latest attempt to deliver a revenge thriller doesn’t pack the same punch.

Death Wish is a classic revenge thriller from 1974, though the Charles Bronson version doesn’t exactly have the most politically correct storyline by today’s standards. The sequels that followed ventured into ridiculous territory from there, and it looks like Eli Roth‘s remake of the original, with Bruce Willis in the lead, is more in tune with those later films.

Watch the Death Wish remake trailer below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

Death Wish first look

With the Death Wish remake, director Eli Roth wants to bring back the Bruce Willis we love. The Bruce Willis we want to pay to see on a Friday night in a theater, not catch in a new straight-to-VOD crime movie. Nothing against those movies or jobs for Willis, but not often enough do we see Willis in an action movie or thriller that lets his talents shine. Roth sounds confident his remake of Michael Winner‘s 1974 film will “bring back that great, classic Bruce Willis.”

Below, check out the Death Wish first look.
