AC/DC's 'Back In Black' Featured In 'Death Wish' Trailer
August 4, 2017
AC/DC's classic song "Back In Black" is featured in the first trailer for director Eli Roth's next film, "Death Wish", starring Bruce Willis and Dean Norris. Due in the fall, it is a remake of the 1974 film of the same name that starred Charles Bronson.
The new "Death Wish", featuring Willis in his comeback role as the main character Paul Kersey, will hit theatres on November 22 via Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Annapurna Pictures. The film also stars Vincent D'Onofrio, Elisabeth Shue, Mike Epps and others.
The original 1974 version of "Death Wish" (which was based on a 1972 novel by Brian Garfield) was extremely controversial at the time it was released, having been criticized for being exploitative in its depiction of the brutal murder and rape of its protagonist's family and its lionization of vigilantism.
A music supervisor who has done music placement for shows such as "Breaking Bad" and "The Walking Dead" revealed in 2014 that the biggest deal he'd ever brokered was for AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" in the film "Varsity Blues". The price tag: a massive $500,000.
AC/DC has had its music featured in other movies, going back to 1986 with the release of "Who Made Who", the soundtrack to the Stephen King film "Maximum Overdrive". In 2010, the band came far closer to releasing a "proper" greatest-hits album with the arrival of the "Iron Man 2" soundtrack, featuring 15 songs that were an almost even split between the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras of the iconic hard rock group.
