Sam Raimi's 'Evil Dead' trilogy is one of the touchstones of cult cinema. From the first no-budget horror film, to the frenetic, slapsticky horror-comedy of the second, to the Dungeons and Dragons and Mark Twain-inspired third film, they are marvelously entertaining movies that inspire very passionate fans. Which is why people keep asking Raimi about a fourth film. Well, he's answered, and suggests he's going to write a new sequel this summer.
After the runaway success of 'The Lorax,' it's no surprise we're going to get more Dr. Seuss-derived animated movies. Next on dock from the makers of 'Lorax' and 'Horton Hears a Who' is 'The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.'
For the last couple years we've seen almost all of the classic horror films of the 1970's and 80's get the remake treatment. 'Gremlins' was one of the rare holdouts, but it looks like its defenses are failing as the latest rumors suggest we may get a new 'Gremlins' film.
Though 'Brave' was a welcome respite, Pixar has gone sequel crazy, as their previous two films were sequels and this summer we're getting a prequel in 'Monsters University.' But the studio is also working on three non-sequels for the future, and have released images from each of them.
'Skyfall' has become a monster hit, and is on track to be the most successful Bond film of all time (unadjusted, natch), as it's already crossed $100 Million domestically, is over half a billion worldwide, and shows no signs of stopping. Now the film's stunning opening credit sequence is available online.
This fall, there were three horror-themed animated films for children, and the big winner was 'Hotel Transylvania.' It's made nearly $140 Million domestically (and over $250 Million worldwide), compared to 'Paranorman's $55 Million ($95 Million worldwide) and 'Frankenweenie's $33 Million (currently $58 Million worldwide). So it should be no surprise that Sony Pictures Animation is moving forward with a 'Hotel Transylvania 2.'
George Lucas has been the master of 'Star Wars' since its inception and though spin-off cartoons and games have been the norm for years, the film series seemed done with after six movies. Disney has just purchased Lucasfilm for over four billion dollars, and have just announced that they're planning on a new movie for sometime in 2015.
Though 'Twilight' has its Twi-hards, it seems the latest TV spot for 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2' is looking to broaden the audience by selling the scale of the final chapter of the 'Twilight' films to people who may have written off the franchise.
As if video game nostalgia weren't enough to get audiences into the theater, 'Wreck-it Ralph,' which opens November 2, has been laying out more and more content to get people excited. The latest are two featurettes that highlight the making of the film, and the voice cast, which includes John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman and Jane Lynch.
We know that 'Thor: The Dark World' has been filming, and is scheduled to hit theaters in a year (November 8, 2013 to be exact), but now Marvel has released their synopsis, which gives us a greater sense of what the film is, and how much (or little) 'The Avengers' plays into the sequel.
