In the early days of his career a young Bruce Campbell joined forces with the fresh filmmaker Sam Raimi in a low budget horror movie called ‘The Evil Dead’. Ever since then Bruce Campbell has taken on multiple roles in plenty of movies and television shows, but his fans will always always associate the dashing actor to the bloody franchise that helped define that decade of horror. Who would have guessed that years after he first took on the role of Ashley “Ash” Williams that Bruce Campbell would inevitably take on the role once more? Similar to Ash’s association with the Necronomicon in the ‘Evil Dead’ universe, this is a [ Read More ]

There is no shortage of superhero movies that need directors right now, given that seemingly every studio has at least several of them in development. There is no question that Marvel Studios is still the king of the comic book movie world, and they have a knack for giving up-and-coming directors a shot at the big time. It turns out that Fede Alvarez, director of the Evil Dead remake, was one of those directors at one point, but he passed on the opportunity.
Screen Rant did a set visit on Alvarez's latest movie Don't Breathe, which is coming out next month. During the course of their interview with the director, he revealed that he was at one point in talks to direct a Marvel movie, but he ultimately passed on the opportunity. When asked if he would be interested in taking on a movie in a major franchise, here is what he had to say. »
The Sam Raimi-directed "Spider-Man" trilogy moved the life of the Peter Parker character along quite fast - going from high school student in the first film to splitting up and reconciling with his fiance by the third. That won't be the path that the new incarnation of the series will take though.
In a new interview with Collider, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige suggests that the plan is to keep Tom Holland's version of Peter Parker, the first one that's officially a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in school as long as they can starting with next year's "Spider-Man: Homecoming". In fact, the plan may be to follow the "Harry Potter" style of one school year per film:
"Should we be able to make more after that? Sure. This is sophomore year, is the next one junior year? Is the next one senior year? Is there a »

More hailing to the king will begin this October as Bruce Campbell repeats his role of Ashley J. Williams. A blast from the past, the retro/nostalgia fad on small screens is dusting off properties such as eagerly anticipated groundbreaking 90s darling, Twin Peaks. Evil Dead, the cult classic Sam Raimi built his career on, certainly suits the criteria for the nostalgia small screen exhumation, but also belongs to another trend as well - the serialization of horror franchises. The A&E television series Damien - based on The Omen franchise - bombed and was axed soon after wrapping its first season. A premise of an Antichrist with a Messianic complex sounds intriguing but the writers managed to drown the show in repetition, losing the momentum early...

Every San Diego Comic-Con offers a different experience and a unique hue to its vintage. Thus it’s impossible to rank one Sdcc adventure over another, yet there are moments at each that stand tall. And running into Bruce Campbell and friends on several occasions this past week while they were promoting Ash vs Evil Dead season 2 certainly qualifies as a hard-to-top highlight.
Indeed, we were able to catch up with Groovy Bruce’s even groovier chin, as well as at different points Rob Tapert, who is executive producer on Ash vs Evil Dead, and fellow cast members Lucy Lawless, Dana DeLorenzo, and Ray Santiago, during a roundtable interview and the season 2 premiere screening. During it all, we learned some pretty nifty details about what »
Over the course of the last several weeks, the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming has absolutely exploded, adding talent left and right to the point where it became a little difficult to keep track of. The casting announcements have settled down as shooting is well underway in Atlanta, but now comes the process of trying to figure out who exactly everyone is playing. It looks like we may be able to cross one name off the board, as a source claims to know who newcomer Angourie Rice is playing in the movie.
According to the fan site Marvelous Realm, The Nice Guys actress will be taking on the role of Betty Brant, who first made an appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #4. Brant is one of the earliest characters to appear in Spider-Man comic books and has been tremendously important to several story lines throughout the wall crawler's history. Here is what »
From RedBand.Ca, take a look @ restricted 'red band' footage from the horror comedy TV series "Ash vs Evil Dead"- Season 2, developed by Sam Raimi for the Starz network, starring actor Bruce Campbell reprising his role as 'Ash Williams', from the original movie trilogy by Raimi:
"...drinking in bars at night and having occasional sex with various women, usually after making up a sensational story about how he lost his hand.
"After having inadvertently read the incantation from the 'Book of the Dead' (again) he unleashes the 'Kandarian Demon' one more time.
"Then a new set of events brings him to assume his former fighting persona and face a demonic »

Leading into Marvel Studios' Hall H panel at Comic-Con on Saturday afternoon, we knew that Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be part of the panel, thanks to social media posts from directors Scott Derrickson and James Gunn. One of the panel's big surprises was the arrival of the Spider-Man: Homecoming cast, who had taken a break in production in Atlanta to showcase the very first footage to the Comic-Con crowd. That footage confirmed that one iconic character has a much different look in this movie.
One scene from the Comic-Con footage featured Tony Revolori, who, when he was cast in April, was said to be playing a character named Manuel, described as a "schoolyard enemy" to Tom Holland's Peter Parker, much like Flash Thompson from the comic books. It seems the name Manuel was all just a red herring, since the footage confirmed »

The 2013 remake of Evil Dead was quite significant, not only for bringing back a franchise, which filmmaker Sam Raimi hadn’t explored since his 1992 movie Army of Darkness, but also because it introduced much of the world to Uruguay-born director Fede Alvarez.
Alvarez’s second feature, the unsettling home invasion thriller Don’t Breathe, will open in the next month, but since Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell have brought back the popular character of “Ash” Williams for their hit Starz television series Ash vs. Evil Dead, many fans have wondered whether we might ever see a direct sequel to Alvarez’s film.
Much of the talk at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend was about the »
Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 may not premiere until October on Starz, but the cast and crew gathered at Comic-Con this past weekend for groovy panel discussions and a tour of the creepy cabin booth. If you were too busy having fun in Jacksonville to make it to San Diego, don’t sweat it, because both events were captured on video for all to enjoy.
The second season roars back into action with Ash leaving his beloved Jacksonville and returning to his hometown of Elk Grove, Michigan. There, he confronts Ruby. The former enemies have to form an »

It's been just over a month since Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming started filming in Atlanta, with many fans wondering if the cast and crew would take a break in the production to swing by Marvel's Hall H panel at Comic-Con yesterday afternoon. As it turns out, those rumors proved to be true, with director Jon Watts and cast members Tom Holland, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Jacob Batalon and Laura Harrier stopping by to reveal the first footage, along with new concept art that confirms the presence of the movie's main villain, Vulture. While the footage hasn't debuted online quite yet, a new interview with the director and stars reveals exactly who Tom Holland's co-stars are playing.
Heading into Sdcc, we knew that Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. were reprising their Captain America: Civil War roles as Peter Parker, Aunt May and Tony Stark/Iron Man, respectively. However, while »
Ever since Spider-Man: Homecoming was announced, the persistent rumour doing the rounds was that the big bad this time round would be the high flying Vulture, with Michael Keaton strapping on the wings to play the role. Now, it’s being confirmed, with Marvel Studio's Comic-Con playing host to this awesome piece of concept art showing off not only the Vulture, but giving us another look at Spidey’s awesome new, Steve Ditko inspired costume. The Vulture is a villain Sam Raimi wanted way back in Spider-Man 3, but was cut due to the inclusion of Venom, so it’s great that we’re finally getting to see him on the big screen. I love the look of his technologically advanced suit, and that wing span is huge!!!!! And his inclusion promises some amazing septettes. Sure, Spidey has had some aerial battles before, but the fluidity and grace of The »

Lee Majors made his first ever Comic-Con appearance today at Starz's Ash Vs. Evil Dead panel. As previously reported, he'll play the father of Bruce Campbell's Ash Williams, the one-handed chainsaw man. "This is a guy who had two series go over 100 episodes," beamed Bruce Campbell in his introduction to Majors. Said co-creator Sam Raimi, "We get to learn about Bruce's character through Lee Majors." "We get to see where Ash got all of his bad habits," said Campbell in the… »
Having worked with Sofia Coppola, Lars von Trier, Michel Gondry, Jeff Nichols, Sam Raimi, Joe Dante, Cameron Crowe, and a number of other accomplished directors, Kirsten Dunst is now set to step behind the camera for her directorial debut. She let it slip earlier this year while on the press tour for Midnight Special, but now it’s confirmed she has set her sights on an adaptation of Sylvia Plath‘s landmark 1963 novel The Bell Jar.
Deadline reports that Dakota Fanning will take the lead role of Esther Greenwood in the film, which follows her character, who suffers from a mental illness upon returning to her Boston home after interning at a magazine in New York City. It’s set to begin production early next year, and we’re looking forward to seeing Dunst taking on something quite ambitious and widely praised for her debut. As we await more details, »

It's one thing to set a TV series in the 1980s; it's a whole other thing, however, to make it feel like it was actually shot during the Reagan-and-Rubik's-Cube era. Matt and Ross Duffer's new Netflix series Stranger Things is full of nostalgic nods to the decade and its pop-cultural products, but it's also uncommonly rigorous about getting the details just right — whether it's the many pitch-perfect music cues, the hat-tipping nods and homages to Eighties movies, or simply nailing the cringeworthy fashion statements of the day (those Mom jeans! »
From the creators of The Evil Dead comes a new Starz Original Series, Ash vs Evil Dead. The Starz Original series is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film The Evil Dead. The series is executive produced by Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead, The Grudge), Rob Tapert (The Evil Dead, The Grudge), and Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice, Oz the Great and Powerful, The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness), the original filmmakers, and Craig Digregorio who serves as executive producer and showrunner.

When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons – personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip. »

Season 2 of Ash vs Evil Dead will yank the boomstick king out of the serenity of Jacksonville and back to Elk Grove, Michigan, where Ash grew up and all hell is about to break loose, and a new image unveiled by EW teases a tense moment with Ash’s father, who is played by the legendary Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man).

Filmmaker Fede Alvarez made an impressive feature debut in 2013 with his uncompromisingly savage, Sam Raimi-approved remake of The Evil Dead, but it didn’t come close to preparing me for his extraordinary follow-up, Don’t Breathe. That film, which reunites Alvarez with his Evil Dead producers Raimi and Rob Tapert as well as co-screenwriter Rodo Sayagues, is a clinic in how to construct a perfect thriller – a Swiss watch of a movie that takes the audience in the palm of its hand in the opening scene and then squeezes hard for an hour and a half. The premise is elegantly […] »
