In a word, groovy...
The remake of Evil Dead recently debuted footage during a panel at the New York Comic-Con (NYCC), with the footage later going online in a bootleg form. Sony Pictures quickly took down the footage and plan to reveal the remake's first teaser tomorrow, but, like Iron Man 3 already proved this week, no good trailer can be released without a teaser for the trailer arriving first.
Incorporating quotes from lead actress Jane Levy, director Fede Alvarez and producer/former lead Bruce Campbell from the NYCC panel, the teaser also offers a few snippets of footage that is sure to swallow your soul.
All the Latest Trailers, screwheads
Fans of Sam Raimi's 1981 original (and subsequent sequels) aren't exactly pleased at the notion of a remake, despite the presence of a decent-looking first image revealed by EW earlier this monh (pictured above). Fan displeasure was made evident when the crowd booed at NYCC when Campbell revealed (via Cinema Blend) that he felt he was too old "to strap on that chainsaw one last time." Still, Campbell praised the remake and assured fans that they would be happy.
Your s**t will be just as freaked as it is in this movie, as it was in the original... I know you fans were pissed — don't think I didn't read about it. Just wait until you see it, then I will accept your collective apology the Monday after it opens...Get ready it's coming in April!
Written by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues, Evil Dead was rewritten by Academy Award–winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno). "As middle aged men we don't really know how young people talk," said Campbell of Cody's involvment. "Oh and she won a f**king Academy Award!"
