Cries of alt-right, racist, and fascist have already been unleashed on some public media.
Nobody has a sense of humor anymore. Moving the plot to Chicago is screaming for "whites to come kill blacks"! One wacko said the trailer will give alt-right guys a boner before it's over.
I dunno, serious movie-making in the USA is officially dead. I'm guessing this will now skip the theater and hit Red Box like most of Bruce's epics.

When it comes to racism and fascism, those aren't laughing matters.
Especially given the current political climate.
So don't watch it. I am sure there are some nice romantic comedies that will not offend you.
We have just been through eight years of racist and fascist rule and it still shows through our film making. We have the most propagandized film industry since Germany prior to WW2. It's done an amazing job on you.
then I realized you were serious. Sad!
what's being fed to you from the silver screen.
To every silly movie that comes out the way you do. That would give anyone paranoid delusions. You're best when you stick to the celluloid and not try to interpret history. Put some extra butter on that popcorn and enjoy the movie...
...stop watching the alt-right fake news.
You have it backasswards.
He was a black president and some had difficulty with that.
The original Death Wish premise benefited by being released during the lawless NYC 70's - and in my opinion the film hasn't aged well as a serious piece of work or as a credible political statement. It's ridiculous!
That said, Charles Bronson was still in his prime back then and his silent focus was believable. Willis on the other hand is at his best when he's slightly over his head, apprehensively rising to the occasion.
I can't imagine him in this role.
Good point and thanks for the reply and thread.
But I never believed he was "Butch"... he is always Bruce Willis. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. And that was over 20 years ago.
