Sam Raimi

  1. It’s OK Everyone, Sam Raimi Doesn’t Think Spider-Man 3 Was “So Good” Either

    Spider-Man: Hindsight Is 20-20-99.

    So... Now we can let the healing begin?

  2. So We’re Getting an Evil Dead TV Series Starring BRUCE CAMPBELL

    Raised from the dead by the Necremakeicon.

    Evil Dead will rise from the grave again—this time, thanks to Starz. The premium network will bring Sam Raimi and producing partner Rob Tapert back together with none other than Bruce Campbell as the series' main character, Ash. Groovy.

  3. Maisie Williams Talks Cersei Envy, Superheroes, and Potential The Last of Us Film

    Cordyceps morghulis?

    Last July Sam Raimi got our hopes up at SDCC when he confirmed that Maisie Williams was in very early talks to star in a possible film adaptation of Naughty Dog's The Last of Us. Since then we've heard agonizingly little about the movie and its potential perfect casting, but according to Williams, the project is still very much in the works.

  4. Everyone’s Gollum-ing in the Honest Trailer for Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Trilogy

    Spider-Man feels alone with his responsibilities... because of Sony.

    Screen Junkies really went for it in their latest honest trailer and took on the entire Spider-Man trilogy. Yes, the one before the rights-related reboot. That's pretty brave of them considering just how much there is to mock about the third movie alone, but they came through and give us brilliant things like Golluming and Spider-Tears.

  5. Screen Gems Developing The Last of Us Movie, Sam Raimi Producing

    Good News Everyone!

    Naughty Dog's Game of the Year title that was just as much about parent child relationships as it was about a horrifying zombie apocalypse, The Last of Us, is probably getting a movie adaptation.

  6. There is An Alternate Universe Where Anne Hathaway Was Black Cat in Spider-Man 4


    Sam Raimi is making the PR rounds for Oz: The Great and Powerful, and seeing as how the second Spider-Man franchise in as many decades is currently filming its first sequel (*sniff* They grow up so fast!), he's naturally being asked what he would have done if Spider-Man III hadn't pretty much squished that version of the character with a tissue (at least in the court of public opinion). Turns out, he would have hired Anne Hathaway.

  7. Robert Downey Jr. Might Have Starred In Oz the Great and Powerful Until He Was Mean to a Plant

    A Lesson in Humility

    Once upon a time, in a land far away, director Sam Raimi decided he wanted Tony Sta—sorry, Robert Downey Jr. (easy mistake to make) to play the lead in Oz the Great and Powerful. It didn't work out, of course. Negotiations fell apart and the role eventually went to James Franco. But why? There's a very scandalous reason. Wait for it… Wait for it…

  8. Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful Gets a Full Trailer

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Oz the Great and Powerful just rubs me the wrong way, and I doubt it has anything to do with the intentions of the people behind it. There's a part of me that, despite how hard I try to just judge the concept on its own merits, is put off by this re-folding of Oz story. Dorothy defeats a formidable female foe at the behest of a benevolent, if somewhat cryptic (seriously, Glinda, we couldn't just explain the shoes at the get go and let her choose?) female figure of power. It's not like Wicked isn't already a hit broadway production, so I'm a little leery of a movie that plucks the only male character of power (and let's remember that it was a power based on illusion and deceit, however well-meaning) from the story of The Wizard of Oz movie and reforms the setting to be about a bunch of powerful women begging him to solve their problem and telling him he's a fabled hero. That said, I don't expect anyone to agree with me, trailers are not the full measure of plot, the movie still has a bunch of great actresses in it, it looks like it'll be a delight to the eyes at the very least, and I'm stupidly happy to see the porcelain people from the book get their due in a movie adaptation. What do you guys think?

  9. Sam Raimi Gets Court Order To Halt Unauthorized Evil Dead Film

    Okay You Primitive Screwheads

    We'd been hearing a lot of serious chatter about an Evil Dead reboot for some time now. It was serious enough that one actress had been cast as the lead, then replaced with another, a male lead being cast as well, and it's already been completely show. But Sam Raimi, writer and director of the original, was involved in all of that. He wasn't involved in Evil Dead 4: Consequences, an unauthorized continuation of his horror series. Thankfully, he's done something about it.

  10. Comic-Con: While You Were Sleeping

    and let it be known

    So none of us could make it to the San Diego Comic-Con this year, but that won't stop us from obsessively checking Twitter for the latest announcements, because, you know, that's an entirely healthy to deal with not being there in person, right? Right? Well, just in case you're not trying to live vicariously through Comic-Con attendees tweets for the next few days, here's a round-up of some of the best announcements from yesterday. Hit the jump for info on Stephanie Meyer's The Host, details on the reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise, and even how to acquire your very own Aperture Laboratories jumpsuit!
