‘Evil Dead 2’ 4K Trailer Is Ready to Swallow Your Soul

Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 are very different films, even if they’re essentially telling the same story. Sam Raimi‘s first Evil Dead is attempting to be a serious horror movie, while Evil Dead 2 slips into slapstick comedy territory. That slapstick angle seems to be the one people remember the most when they think of Evil Dead, making the sequel the far more prominent film. Now Studio Canal is releasing an Evil Dead 2 4K Blu-ray in the 4K, and there’s a new trailer ready to swallow your soul. Wa...

‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Producer Jon Landau on the Film’s Long Road to the Big Screen [Interview]

Alita: Battle Angel has been a long time coming.

Cameron ultimately handed directorial duties over to Rodriguez, who helped whip Cameron’s epic script into a manageable length. Even with a different director at the helm, producer Jon Landau wanted to make a James Cameron-style event film, de...

‘The Babadook’ Director Jennifer Kent is Working on a Project With Guillermo del Toro

Jennifer Kent broke onto the scene in 2014 with The Babadook, a movie that managed to be a thoughtful examination of motherhood, grief, and mental illness while also being a movie about a terrifying top-hatted monster who lives in a children’s book and haunts an unsuspecting family.
