We’d been told to expect Eli Roth’s Death Wish Remake to hit theaters in time for Thanksgiving, but more recent reports indicate the film won’t be home for the holiday after all. We’re getting news from multiple sites that Roth’s first directorial effort since 2016’s Knock Knock has been bumped back to March 2nd, 2018.

This can indicate several things: The studio can be expressing a lack of faith in the movie, or demanding edits/reshoots in order to please producers; it could indicate a better window for box office returns, as a November release would put Death Wish up against Polaroid; also, a March release will make the film more of a stand-out, even though most fans and critics think of January thru March as a dumping ground for mediocre films. Of course, this is all conjecture and time will tell.
Check out the trailer and synopsis for Eli Roth’s Death Wish below.
