You'll get to see EVIL DEAD a week sooner than you thought...
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. So, thanks to Fox moving Paul Feig's The Heat to June, we're now all going to get to see if Fede Alvarez's EVIL DEAD reboot is up to snuff a week earlier. Sony has moved the film up to April 5th, opening against the 3-D re-release of Jurassic Park.
I liked what I saw when I visited the set, but what's really bolstering my excitement for the film is that I keep hearing from many industry friends that Sony is incredibly happy and proud of the film. With a hard R rated horror film you typically get the big studios putting them out, collecting the cash and acting embarrassed by the whole thing. If they like how this has turned out, then they see more than money in it, they see a good film.
Regarding the recent story about how the MPAA hit the film with an NC-17 and it was cut for an R... Alvarez tweeted shortly after that saying that every bit of gore you see in the redband trailer is in the film and the cuts they had to make aren't as steep as people are worried about. So, if you liked the trailer you ain't getting anything less gory than that.
Gore is awesome. I love it, but it really is about the filmmaking and the characters being there. If Alvarez nailed it and the movie makes some bank, from what I hear we're in for a fun ride over these next few years.
