The Carrie reboot has been a long time coming. It was late last year that we got a peak of Kimberly Pierce's adaptation of the Stephen King novel of the same name. Originally scheduled for March, the date was then pushed towards the end of the year, undoubtedly so it can cash in on US Halloween enthusiasts willing to pay a tenner for a bowel movement.
Another year in film, another pointless, cash-cow remake. Big names have been tossed about in Hollywood as to who will take the lead in Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's futile reboot of The Crow. These names include Mark Wahlberg, Bradley Cooper and Channing Tatum, who could take this film to a new level if dancing and stripping is involved, but alas it isn't and the big casting finger is now firmly pointing to X Men: First Class star and all round loveable Scot, James McAvoy.
Following from last week's release of a new poster, FilmDistrict have released a new set of images from their horror remake Evil Dead.
Joe Carnahan just cannot catch a break.
Following the demise of his gritty, period take on Marvel's Daredevil, the Narc director was all set to direct a remake of 1974 classic Death Wish. Sadly, it appears his plans have now taken a bullet in the face.
Sony have released a new poster for their very promising looking remake of The Evil Dead, this time titled simply Evil Dead. Although merely a re-jigged version of a previous poster it's good to see more hype being built up.
The brand new trailer for Franck Khalfoun's Maniac sheds extra light on what looks like one of the year's darkest pictures.
A brand new poster has been released to promote the forthcoming release of Maniac, a highly anticipated remake of the 80's film with the same name. Directed by Franck Khalfoun the film stars everyone's favourite little Hobbit Elijah Wood.
Fans of David Fincher's remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (I am reliably informed such a thing exists) must be champing at the bit for news on the status of The Girl With Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest, which would round out Stieg Larsson's The Girl Who Does Stuff She Shouldn't trilogy.
The Town That Dreaded Sundown (MGM, 1976) isn't on many people's radar these days, despite it being a slasher classic which prefigured Halloween by two years. In fact, since a throwaway line referenced the movie in Scream, it hasn't really been mentioned.
Somehow the editors of this trailer managed to find two minutes of Evil Dead footage that was not utterly revolting. That alone is an achievement worthy of commendation.
