New details on Ash vs Evil Dead; takes place in alternate universe & might include time travel

23 April 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Evil Dead was released over 30 years ago and is still considered one of the greatest cult horror movies of all time. It spawned two sequels and a remake in 2013 but in just a few months we will see the return of our much loved chainsaw-limbed hero Ash…and probably a few deadites too.

Director Sam Raimi, producer Rob Tapert and lead actor Bruce Campbell recently spoke to the press about what we can expect from Ash vs Evil Dead and according to Raimi it’s set in an “alternate universe” and might include time travel:

“It doesn’t really exist in the exact same universe. It’s a slightly altered universe. It takes place somewhere in an alternate universe after Evil Dead 2Army of Darkness, does it exist? Well, certainly Ash went through that experience. We’re not referencing specifics from that, but he certainly has that in his memory. »

New Ash Vs. Evil Dead Photo Teases A Familiar Sight

23 April 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production on the Ash Vs. Evil Dead series has kicked off in New Zealand, reuniting original core trio Sam Raimi, Bob Tapert and Bruce Campbell, who will all reprise their roles as director, producer and star, respectively. One other defining element of Deadite lore is now poised to re-appear thanks to the first promo shot of the creative trio: Raimi’s 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88. The yellow saloon has made cameos in every single one of the director’s films to date, and served as the titular buffoon’s own ride in the first few Evil Deads.

Speaking of that inciting trilogy, it seems as though the ten-episode series won’t share quite as much connective tissue as previously thought. Of course, it’s still the same Ash who fought Deadites on more than occasion and kicked their groaning, demonic butts back to hell. But his new bout of adventures set some »

14 Things We Learned During the Ash vs Evil Dead Conference Call

23 April 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week, production began on the highly anticipated upcoming Starz series, Ash vs Evil Dead, which has creators Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell reuniting, this time in New Zealand, to bring fans a new iteration of everyone’s favorite chainsaw-wielding anti-hero.

Daily Dead had the opportunity to take part in a very special conference call with the trio about what we can expect from the first 10-episode season (and beyond), how Ash vs Evil Dead will fit into the overall Evil Dead universe, input into some of the new characters we’ll be meeting along the way and much, much more.

Ash vs Evil Dead will definitely be hardline horror but expect some quintessential Evil Dead comedy to show up from time to time: According to Raimi, Ash vs Evil Dead is definitely going to be an intense horror experience but when you’re working with someone like »

Maisie Williams on The Last of Us movie: 'It's very, very early days'

21 April 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Maisie Williams has discussed the Last of Us movie, stating that it's "very, very early days".

The Game of Thrones star said production on the film is a long way off, despite having talks with writer Neil Druckmann and producer Sam Raimi about the project.

"The actual film, the making of the film, the script and everything is in very, very early days," she told Digital Spy.

"It was announced sort of prematurely almost in that I would love to play Ellie, they would love me to play Ellie.

"There's no film happening at this very second, so I cannot play Ellie right at this very minute. But when that comes around - if and when that comes around - I'll be here."

Williams also revealed that she has started playing The Last of Us with her brothers.

‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare’ is the King of Metalsploitation

20 April 2015 9:12 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The first scene plays out like an anti-thesis to the satanic and heavy metal antics that the film devotes itself too. The setup is quaint. A young father happily shaves his face. A young mother is cooking breakfast, and their son yells that he can’t wait to scramble eggs with her! All of the sudden demons pop out of the oven and kill the mom and dad. Thus begins Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare – also known as The Edge of Hell in certain parts of the world – perhaps the most definitive entry into “Metalsploitation”.

What is “Metalsploitation”? One of my friends brought the term to my attention, and I’m not sure if that subgenre classification already exists, so if not congratulations to him for inventing it. Metalsploitation exists in this bizarre era of cinema where horror films and heavy metal artists and music met. It produced cult classics like this, »

Josh Hartnett Explains Why He Turned Down Christopher Nolan's Batman Movies

17 April 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the early 2000s, young heartthrob Josh Hartnett was in a position that many young actors would envy. He had just starred in two big movies (“Pearl Harbor” and “Black Hawk Down”) from two very different auteurs, and for a while it seemed like he could be the next top tier star: a new Tom Cruise or Will Smith. But Hartnett avoided being locked down in any possible blockbuster franchise by turning down one superhero role after another, yet there’s one he regrets saying no to. In a short interview with Playboy (via Variety), Hartnett was asked about the times he was asked to play Superman for Bryan Singer in “Superman Returns,” Spider-Man for Sam Raimi’s film of the same name and Batman for Christopher Nolan. What was his reasoning for turning down such potentially lucrative roles? “The intensity of my sudden fame was overwhelming for me, and in the middle of that, »

Robert Downey Jr. Hypes New 'Spider-Man'

16 April 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Apparently far more engaged in this interview than he was in the one I covered two days ago, Robert Downey Jr. opened up a bit more about Spider-Man. Why? Well, unless you've been living under a rock, you should know that Sony and Marvel have reached an agreement where a new take on Spidey will be shared by both studios- which will finally allow ol' web head to make his present felt in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Along with that news came our report that Downey Jr's Tony Stark/Iron Man was going to make a meaningful appearance in the new Spider-Man reboot. 

So, naturally, as he goes around doing press for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Rdj has been fielding a ton of questions about Spider-Man. This time around, the actor had this to say when asked what it will mean to have Spider-Man around:

Marvel Has Designed Spider-Man's Costume, Here's The Latest

12 April 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Between both the Sam Raimi and Marc Webb movies, audiences have seen multiple interpretations of Spider-Man's famed red and blue suit. Given how popular some of those designs were, it should be a certain challenge for Marvel Studios to come up with an equally satisfying look now that the hero is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But evidently it's a challenge that the company is ready to take head-on, as they have actually already have selected a new costume for the webslinger. This interesting update comes to us from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, who recently chatted a bit about Spider-Man with Crave Online. Discussing what we can expect from the look of Spider-Man when he is introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Feige noted that he appreciates what has been done in the past, but that what's being prepared for the Marvel Studios version is »

Kevin Feige Says Disney’s Spider-Man Is Peter Parker; Is Another Reboot on the Way?

11 April 2015 5:39 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Spider-Man joining the McU, people have been wondering whether the rebooted web-spinner would be the Peter Parker version or will he be the Miles Morales incarnation. Marvel Entertainment head honcho Kevin Feige has now answered that question…Peter Parker is back for a third go-round.

Peter Parker is the longest serving and best known version of Spider-Man. The two previous franchises have used good old Pete as the main character. Therefore, it’s not terribly surprising that Marvel Entertainment top man Kevin Feige has officially announced that the Disney reboot of Spider-Man—Who is rumored to be debuting in Captain America: Civil War in May of 2016 and will be appearing in his own solo film in July 2017—will be of the Peter Parker variety.  This puts a halt to the rumors that Disney might be using the Miles Morales version.

Does the 2003 Daredevil movie really suck?

9 April 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of the new Netflix Daredevil show, Luke Owen asks the burning question – does the 2003 Daredevil movie really suck?

In the early 2000s, comic book movies were riding high on a wave of popularity. After seemingly being killed off by the likes of Batman & Robin and Steel, comic book movies made a huge comeback with critically-praised and fan-adored movies like Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Bryan Singer’s X-Men. When X-Men hit it big at the box office in 2000 and Spider-Man followed suit in 2002, movie studios started to snap up as many titles as they possibly could to piggyback off their success. So many of their characters were sold off in fact that not only did it save Marvel Comics from bankruptcy, but there were reports of upwards of 40 movies based on Marvel characters in some stage of development between 2000 and 2002. One of those projects was Daredevil.

Nsfw Feature: 5 Comic Book Movie Porn Parody Costumes Which Beat The Movies

7 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Note: This feature is intended to be for fun. We're not seriously suggesting that the stars of our favourite comic book movies start dressing like this, though there's no denying that some of these costumes do work as we hope you'll see below. Basically, try not to take this too seriously!  We've reached a point in comic book movies where movie studios no longer seem to be afraid to give superheroes their costumes. They've been getting them since early on to be fair (it's hard to find fault with the suit used in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man back in 2002), but they've become more and more faithful since then, despite there being some examples where the comic books are clearly ignored for whatever reason. Ok, maybe that's just the X-Men franchise at this point. Regardless, as these adaptations have increased in popularity, so too have the porn parodies which capitalise on their success. »
