Ash Vs Evil Dead Images Dare to Open the Necronomicon

2 July 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yesterday's news brought the first look at Bruce Campbell and his co-stars of Ash vs Evil Dead, Starz new half-hour horror/comedy series coming to television this fall. Today, we have a peek at the Necronomicon, the vile book of the dead which has been a consistent cause of conflict throughout the Evil Dead installments. Bound in human flesh and inked in blood, this tome has the ability of summoning the mysterious, nefarious entity known as The Force, which can reanimate the dead (among other horrible things). If you're able to decipher the Necronomicon's text, I recommend that you keep it to yourself, and strongly suggest that you don't read it out loud. Check out some early looks at the new Necronomicon from Ash vs Evil Dead (via EW): [caption id="attachment_481099" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via EW[/caption] [caption id="attachment_481101" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via EW[/caption] [caption id="attachment_481211" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via EW[/caption] Here’s the Comic-Con panel info for Ash »

Ash is Back in First Official 'Ash vs. Evil Dead' Photo

2 July 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Groovy. After some very brief teases spelling out a good bit of text but not a lot of footage, today we get our first official look at Ash (Bruce Campbell) back again after 23 years -- that is, if you don't count that post-credits tease at the end of 2013's Evil Dead -- in Starz' new original series "Ash vs. Evil Dead," slated to begin its 10-episode season sometime this fall. There's not a whole hell of a lot you can really say about just a single image, but it's worth noting this is the first official look and introduction to soon-to-be series regulars and fellow Value Shop employees, Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo). Both characters aid our titular character, as he returns to crank the chainsaw back on and fight a Deadite plague threatening to destroy all of mankind. Also signed on to star, but not featured in »

Bruce Campbell Gets Bloody in First Ash Vs Evil Dead Image

1 July 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In advance of their arrival at Comic-Con 2015, Starz has revealed the first image from their new series, Ash vs Evil Dead. The ten-episode first season of the half-hour horror/comedy series will debut this fall with star Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash, the chainsaw-handed, Deadite-killing stock boy who is drawn back into the battle against the Evil Dead after living peacefully for the last 30 years. Campbell, who is featured front and bloody center in the first image, produces alongside original filmmakers Sam Raimi and Bob Tapert, and showrunner Greg Digregorio. Here's what the always-charming Campbell says about Ash's activity level of late: “Not much!” says Campbell. “He was perfectly happy doing basically nothing: telling lies about how he lost his hand in bars late at night. That was basically his Mo. So, he’s not really the guy who should be dealing with this right now. But…he is. »

Groovy. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, the first official image of Bruce Campbell as the chainsaw-armed Ash Williams in the upcoming Starz series Ash vs Evil Dead has been revealed.

This new photo features Campbell back as Ash, along with his new sidekicks: Pablo Simon Bolivar (Ray Santiago) and Kelly Maxwell (Dana DeLorenzo).

EW's Dalton Ross also caught up with Campbell and executive producer/co-writer/series premiere director Sam Raimi to discuss the details of the Deadite-dicing series. Raimi talked about Ash once again inadvertently bringing undead demons into our world:

"He’s the only one stupid enough to really tamper with those spirits. And he does. But he’s also still a really good monster fighter."

Campbell touched upon the type of tone viewers can expect from Ash vs Evil Dead:

“It’s The Searchers with carnage and mayhem.”

Kevin Feige Says 'Spider-Man 2' Is "One Of The Best Superhero Movies Ever," Talks John Hughes Influence On New Spidey

29 June 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Perhaps like Christopher Nolan's take on Batman, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies (okay, except the third one), have set a pretty high bar for everyone's favorite webslinger. Try as they did, Sony, Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield couldn't get the mix right on the failed "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies, but Marvel is now getting their crack at Peter Parker, and honcho Kevin Feige knows that he's got a big job ahead. “We’re going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films… I think 'Spider-Man 2' is one of the best superhero movies ever, so that’s a lot to live up to,” he told SuperHeroHype. But just how will this new iteration of Spider-Man differ? Well, as has been rumored for the past couple of months, Feige and co. will be drawing on the influence of one of key portraitists of young adult life. »

Danny Elfman on Film Scores, 'Simpsons' and Working With Tim Burton

29 June 2015 5:48 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The way film composer and former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman tells it, his whole career boils down to two words: "Fuck it." He muttered that philosophical phrase when he offered an opportunity to write his first movie score – for director Tim Burton's feature debut, Pee-wee's Big Adventure – and the musician said it again when given the chance to perform his now-impressive catalog of symphonic cinematic creations in his "Music From the Films of Tim Burton" concert series.

Marvel's 'Spider-Man' Will Be Its Own Thing Says Kevin Feige

27 June 2015 3:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This past week, we learned the big news that Tom Holland is the new Peter Parker in Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man reboot, which will hit theaters in IMAX and 3D on July 28, 2017. We also learned that Jon Watts, director of this August's thriller Cop Car, is directing. While that is all great, many fans are still wondering if this will be a complete resurrection of the character, or if this trilogy will have any ties to the past movies, either the trilogy directed by Sam Raimi or the two movies that came from Marc Webb. Speaking with Coming Soon, Marvel head honcho and producer of the reboot, Kevin Feige promises that this will have no ties to anything that has come before it. Though, it will co-exist in a Sony Universe alongside the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"We're going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films. »

Sneak Peek new images of Emmy-nominated actress ("30 Rock") and "Pitch Perfect 2" director Elizabeth Banks in "...a sexy and surreal" fashion spread, photographed by Hunter & Gatti for "Flaunt" magazine:

What are the Saturn Awards? 10 things you need to know

25 June 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Saturn Awards have been around for over 40 years, and chances are you've never heard of them. So what are they, then? As someone who has covered two past ceremonies (2010 and 2011), I was frankly shocked to discover that actual giant celebrities and directors attend the show every year. Among the big names the years I attended: A-list filmmakers Guillermo del Toro and Sam Raimi, "Carrie" and "Let Me In" star Chloe Grace Moretz, "True Detective's" Michelle Monaghan and "Chuck" star Zachary Levi. Not exactly the Oscars! But still impressive for a ceremony that isn't televised or generally talked about. So what are they, then, again? With the 41st annual ceremony set to take place tonight, below I've put together a list of 10 things you need to know about this mysterious, long-running Hollywood fete. »

New on DVD/Blu-ray: Ryan Gosling's 'Young Hercules,' 'Dog Soldiers' Gets Upgraded, and More

24 June 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

That time Ryan Gosling played a young Kevin Sorbo Young Hercules: Here's a weird bit of trivia. The '90s TV adventure show Hercules: The Legendary Journeys ran for six seasons and had a total of 111 episodes. Its spin-off prequel show, Young Hercules starring a teenage Ryan Gosling, only ran for one season, but it had a whopping 50 episodes. That's pretty absurd, right?  So hey, if you're looking for a great, totally random gift for the Gosling fan in your life, we're going to go ahead and guess they don't own all 50 episodes of his Fox Kids Network 1998 classic. Oh, and did we mention it was produced by Sam Raimi?   One of the great werewolf classics Dog Soldiers: Neil Marshall is a fairly household name with genre fans, which is...
