New Green Band Evil Dead Trailer Gives Us All of the Creepiness, Less of the Gore [VIDEO]

Bloody Good Fun

I can't be the only one who chose not to wath the red band Evil Dead trailer. If I recall correctly, I was going to watch it, but then I heard how, er, intense it is, and I was eating an early lunch, and… look, it just didn't seem like a good call at the time, is what I'm saying. So here's a green band trailer—a.k.a. one that's much more likely to play in an actual movie theater and is therefore lighter on the particularly gruesome stuff—for A) my fellow wimps, or B) your general person who's looking forward to the Evil Dead remake. It may not have a lot of blood, guts, and body mutilation, but it's still creepy as hell. (via: Collider) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

Things We Saw Today: Jon Hamm & Daniel Radcliffe In A Bathtub?

Things We Saw Today

Well we've seen Daniel Radcliffe in a bathtub in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire but this is something different all together. It's a shot from Radcliffe's new film with Mad Men star Jon Hamm, A Young Doctor's Notebook. In it, Radcliffe plays the younger version of Hamm's character. And this is extremely bizarre.

Evil Dead Red Band Trailer Is Seriously Evil, Seriously Dead, Seriously Red

Bloody Good Fun

If you aren't hip to the whole "red band" thing, allow us to explain. Usually trailers have a "green band," that bit that comes before the trailer. It means the The Motion Picture Association of America has put their stamp on it to play before films with equal ratings. But trailers that go so far past the point of acceptable language, violence, or sex get a red band. They can be played in theaters with R, NC-17, or unrated films but it doesn't happen often. Before you hit play, let me just say, the Evil Dead remake trailer should have been given a "plaid band." Watch at your own risk. (If you don't get the plaid reference, I've embedded a video to explain after the jump.)

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 anothera 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.

Sam Raimi Sues to Re-Establish Evil Dead Rights Because of Something He Said in a Book Once

This Makes Sense

Some primitive screwheads unaffiliated with the people who created the Evil Dead franchise have been trying to use the horror classic's title to produce a third sequel to the original movies. But one of those creators, Sam Raimi, never actually signed away the rights to the Evil Dead name, so now he's suing to stop the aforementioned screwheads from screwing with the series while Raimi is producing an actual Evil Dead movie. However, the screwheads -- Award Pictures -- say that Raimi all but gave them permission to make an Evil Dead sequel -- when he said something to that effect in The Evil Dead Companion, published in 2000. Yup. A random quote in a book from 2000, a quote preceded by the word "Ha," was read as a go-ahead for Award Pictures to make their own unauthorized sequel to The Evil Dead. Yeah. Good luck with that.

Suburgatory Star Jane Levy Lands the Lead Role in Evil Dead, Replacing Lily Collins

Up-and-comer Jane Levy, who currently stars on the ABC show Suburgatory, has taken the lead female role in the Evil Dead remake, replacing Lily Collins, who vacated the role due to scheduling issues. By looking at her (because I have not yet seen Suburgatory, and I feel like I might be missing out), it looks like she will be channeling either her inner Emma Stone or her inner Kristen Stewart. It's really hard to make predictions, because as exciting as it is to see a female lead in the Evil Dead, we're talking about Evil Dead without Ash in it. Hmmmm.

Shiloh Fernandez Cast As the Male Lead in the New Evil Dead

Okay You Primitive Screwheads

So, last we heard about the Evil Dead remake, Lily Collins, who was set to play the female lead -- the "lead" lead -- had dropped out due to scheduling issues. That part has yet to be re-cast. But now we know who will be playing that female character's brother: Shiloh Fernandez. Don't worry, we don't know who he is either. Let's find out together! There is a plot synopsis inside, so if you are avoiding even the most general of spoilers, be forewarned.

The Evil Dead Remake Will Have a Female Lead, and It’s Lily Collins

All I can say about this is "WOW." According to The Hollywood Reporter, the team remaking The Evil Dead had a very different kind of lead in mind for the new flick and has already made an offer -- to Lily Collins. You heard me: a female lead for the new Evil Dead, which is being co-written by Diablo Cody (along with director Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues). Are we ready for this, fellow primitive screwheads? Come inside, but be aware that there are some minor plot spoilers. We will protect you from them with our chainsaw arms. (Actually they're not big spoilers, unless you really don't want to know anything at all about the movie.)

Bruce Campbell Explains Why He Won’t Be Playing Ash in the New Evil Dead

Consider the Following

Bruce Campbell, despite his minimal involvement with the new Evil Dead movie, has been a go-to source for news on the movie. And he continues to fill us all in on what the deal is, including why he won't be reprising his role as Ash. His reason? The new Evil Dead is a flat-out reboot -- without Ash. But let's hear him out. His -- and Sam Raimi's -- reasoning is actually pretty sound.

New Details on the New Evil Dead Movie Reveal Why Anyone Would Go to That Damn Cabin

All this has happened before...

If fans of the Evil Dead movies wonder anything about Evil Dead 2, it's why, in the name of all that's holy, does Ash (Bruce Campbell) return to that godforsaken cabin in the woods after everything that happened in the first movie? Was his mind erased? Did he just think, "Aw, heck! That won't happen twice!" and pack up his car, unsuspecting girlfriend in tow? Well, Ash won't be in the new Evil Dead movie, and none of those characters will have experienced what Ash did. And according to some new details being leaked, they actually do have a reason to go to this hellhole: drugs.

Who Should Really Be Allowed to Replace Bruce Campbell in The Evil Dead?

The World May Never Know

So, they're going to remake The Evil Dead. That was hard enough to deal with, but once its original star, Mr. Bruce Campbell, gave us his blessing that assurance that this was going to be a lovingly-made project, it was easier to accept. And now, we know that Campbell will not be reprising his role as Ash. And this opens up a lot of questions about who is the right man to fill those very special shoes. Some people have tried to come up with contenders, but I think this is a lot more delicate than some are thinking this will be.

Bruce Campbell Will Appear in the Evil Dead Remake, Feel Free to Feel Conflicted About This

It feel incredibly weird to be an Evil Dead fan right now. On one hand, we are really conflicted about whether or not we want to see a remake of this movie, which is a classic indie horror chestnut. A classic indie horror chestnut that is so special because of the people who are in it and how it came to be. That kind of experience can never be duplicated, and most of us would prefer to keep it sacred. But then one of those original people -- Bruce Campbell, that gentleman above -- not only gave the script his blessing, but has agreed to film a cameo in the remake. This, plus the news that the remake will have different characters and a different story, also makes it feel like less of a reboot or remake and more of a new installment of the existing series. (Especially if Sam Raimi really is involved.)
