"The Warriors" - Battlefield LA
Directed by Ram Bhat, this fan trailer for a reboot of the 1979 cult classic The Warriors looks pretty damn awesome. Relocating the setting to an early nineties, neon tinged Los Angeles, specifically Long Beach- This is a re-imagining of the franchise that I really wouldn't mind seeing. Considering that there is a website up for this reboot and a Facebook page, I'm wondering if this is a viral attempt to gauge interest in a reboot or draw attention to director Ram Bhat to helm it. Remember the gritty Punisher: Dirty Laundry proof of concept video? The vibes are quite similar.
Los Angeles 1992 - The Warriors and every other gang in the city are called to meet in the Valley. Cyrus, the leader of the biggest gang (The Riffs), wants to take over LA and proposes a truce amongst them all. But as events take a turn for the worse, the Warriors have to fight their way back home to Long Beach. WILL THEY SURVIVE THE NIGHT?
