It's shaping up to be quite a week for both trailers and horror movie news. Focusing on the latter first, rumors centering on an "Evil Dead" remake have been building to a fever pitch all week long, and now, we've got some concrete news.
Deadline reports that, yes, Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell are indeed remaking "Evil Dead" — again — with Fede Alvarez directing and, get this, "Juno" writer Diablo Cody doing revisions on the latest draft. Pretty cool team! Still no word on whether or not Campbell is playing Ash again, though we all know there's only one king we hail to, baby. We'll keep you posted on the remake as more news comes in.
In the meantime, check out two new trailers that just arrived online that are sure to get your pulses pounding.
Up first is the new trailer for "Contagion," Steven Soderbergh's latest thriller about a deadly epidemic that's unleashed across the globe. The movie's got an all-star cast with actors Jude Law, Matt Damon and Gwyneth Paltrow in the mix; combine their star power with Soderbergh's cinematic eye and a literally killer story, and I think we're in for an interesting time at the movies. Click the image below to watch the trailer.
Next and last is the new trailer for "The Thing," the remake/reboot/prequel hybrid that's set off more than a few alarms amongst the "Thing" purists. But the trailer actually looks pretty convincing, at least in the high budget and scares department. Plus, Mary Elizabeth Winstead getting her action hero on? Never a bad thing.
