As part of its 600+ title distribution deal with Paramount, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is set to release director Michael Winner's Death Wish, starring Charles Bronson, Vincent Gardenia, Hope Lange, William Redfield, Steven Keats, Jeff Goldblum and Olympia Dukakis. The classic 1974 revenge thriller makes its Blu-ray debut on February 4, 2014.
Official Synopsis: In this explosive story of revenge and urban violence, Charles Bronson plays Paul Kersey, a passifist who has a change of heart after his family is attacked by a gang of thugs in their apartment, and his wife is brutally murdered. Kersey turns vigilante overnight, stalking the mean streets of New York; on the prowl for muggers, hoodlums and other criminals. Death Wish is a violent, controversial film that tackles urban crime and the average citizen's helplessness in dealing with it.
Warner has yet to detail tech specs or special features.
I am all over this, I am praying this is done right THE FIRST TIME, with respect to the picture, audio, and extras...I hope this sells well too, show WB that some of us care about these type of releases...See ya Feb 4, 2014!
Finally! I've been waiting what seems like forever for this classic film to release on Blu-Ray. I denied myself the luxury of picking up the DVD all this time, so this will truly be a day long remembered!
Tower Records/ Video in Paramus New jersey and Nanuet in New York State if it was still in business would have Death Wish and new releases right after midnight monday. Now you would have to call & run around looking for this title. Or download from the net. This would be an added Blu-ray title to my collection. Still need to buy Death Wish 4.
