The Evil Dead Remake Gets a Release Date

There's been a plethora of new details emerging for the remake of the 1981 Sam Raimi film The Evil Dead lately. Everything from character breakdowns to close dissections of the flick's plot. Now, however, we have something concrete ... a release date!

Evil Dead Remake Ready to Take Flight ... to New Zealand!

If there is one thing we learned from watching Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, it's that New Zealand is home to some of the most beautifully dense forest landscapes we've ever seen. The perfect place to hide a cabin full of Candarian demons!

Evil Dead Remake Lands Distribution Deal with Sony Pictures

We knew it was coming, and now we know who will be bringing it to us!

Diablo Cody Sheds More Light on the Evil Dead Remake

I remember back when we first broke the news - before anyone else - that a remake of The Evil Dead was on its way. People were skeptical, and rightly so. Now though, it's all water under the bridge, and the flick is well on its way. When it was announced that writer Diablo Cody was handling the scripting details, a shudder went down the spines of fans. Would this flick be riddled with the kind of sharp and spazzy dialog Cody is known for? Read on for the answer.

Diablo Cody on The Evil Dead Remake: "It's Unbelievably Violent"

Some fans of The Evil Dead may just be getting the word that Diablo Cody, the screenwriter behind Juno, has been at work on the script for The Evil Dead remake. But before you fly off the handle and think this is going to be some flaky emo version of the film, listen to what the writer herself has to say about how she felt working on this legendary film series.

Official - New Evil Dead Flick on Its Way; Diablo Cody Doing Revisions on the Script

When we broke the story about a new Evil Dead flick coming on strong, it was risky. At that time it was unconfirmed, and if we were wrong, there would have been a lot of egg on our faces. Well, we took that chance, and we're happy to say that not only were we right, but you read it here first! Now then ... on to the official word!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Scarlett Johansson Joining the Undead in Breathers?

It's been several months since we've gotten any sort of update on the Diablo Cody produced film version of S.G. Browne's debut novel, Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament, but today the Internet is buzzing with the news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson are "loosely attached" to the project.

Diablo Cody Offers an Update on Breathers and Damage Control on Jen's Body

It was last February when we first heard that Diablo Cody would be producing the film version of S.G. Browne's debut novel, Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament, and finally she provided an update on the project this weekend during Showtime's presentation to the Television Critics Association (for her United States of Tara).

Jennifer's Body DVD and Blu-ray Specs

Just the other day we got a look at the cover art for the December 29th DVD and Blu-ray release of Jennifer's Body, and now we have the specs to go along with it!

Jennifer's Body's UK Quad Poster

Poor Amanda Seyfried. Not only does she have to play second fiddle to the undeniably inferior (acting-wise) Megan Fox in Jennifer's Body, but the new UK quad poster for the flick shows her in the most unflattering light possible. Something tells me, however, that the "Big Love" star will rebound just fine. Ms. Fox and Ms. Cody, on the other hand...

Jennifer's Body Makes a Disappointing Debut

Proving unequivocally that yes, female filmmakers (even one who's won an Oscar!) can make just as crappy a movie as their male counterparts can, Jennifer's Body (review here) tanked at the box office, coming in a mere fifth place with a measly $6.8 million (estimated).

Jennifer's Body - Red Carpet Premiere

Dread Central (in this case Dread scribes Heather Wixson and myself) hit the red carpet for the premiere of Fox’s Jennifer’s Body (review here) last night at the Hollywood & Highland complex in Hollywood, CA, and brought back some ocular candy as well as a handful of video interviews from the rather cramped carpet, which you can see below.
