You realize that delightful little minute in movies when the title of the film is said so everyone can hear by one of the main characters? Indeed, this I Am Wrath trailer takes the cake in such manner, since Chuck Russell’s thriller literally puts the title of the film on-screen character John Travolta’s back. Travolta’s back tat is one of the final images we find in the I Am Wrath trailer — and there couldn’t possibly have been a superior note to end on.
After Stanely Hill’s (Travolta) wife is fiercely killed before him, the widower finds another motivation to live: exact retribution. Hill, who has a mysterious yet violent past, takes up arms against those responsible for the demise of his wife. Yes, the synopsis is familiar, especially in light of John Wick, yet this I Am Wrath trailer isn’t afraid of covering familiar ground including an action beat that has The Equalizer written on top of it.
