D.O.A. (2022) Trailer Breakdown: A Promising Remake of a Film Noir Thriller

Rudolph Maté’s 1950 film noir thriller, D.O.A., isn’t considered a classic, but its status has grown over the decades because it has been remade several times, with the most recent update set to be released on November 11, 2022. Its premise is a fatally poisoned man tries to solve the mystery of who has poisoned him. It is an appealing one for filmmakers to take on, so it has been re-incarnated as the movies Eddie Davis’ Color Me Dead (1969), Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel’s D.O.A. (1988), Stephen Cyrus Sepher’s Dead On Arrival (2017), and now, Kurt St. Thomas’s adaptation, D.O.A., which in its trailer presents itself as the most faithful remake as a black and white period piece.
