Yeah, it's been more than 20 years since Bruce Campbell appeared as the deadite-slaying Ash in Army of Darkness. So what? That doesn't mean we aren't going to get the sequel we've been hoping for since 1992 -- at least, not if we can take Campbell at his word.
feedproxy.google.com – Once upon a time, Sam Raimi wanted to call his third Deadite-killing expedition Medieval Dead, and briefly flirted with the title Evil Dead III: Army of Darkness, before simply releasing the movie as Army of Darkness in 1992. There’s no question that the film is a sequel to Evil Dead II; it uses Bruce Campbell as the same lead character, Ash, and involves many familiar Evil Dead elements. 1 year 24 weeks ago via brucelee

If it’s true that every story, especially reboots, face pressure to be knowingly meta, Oz The Great and Powerful has a “get out of jail free” card. A prequel, of sorts, to the 1939 Technicolor musical, The Wizard of Oz, this extended metaphor about the magic of illusion and richness of fantasy has nothing to bring it back to the ground.

fb.indiewire.com – It's unfortunate that director Andrew Stanton has to deal with his $250 million-budgeted “John Carter” being synonymous with high-stakes cinematic failure, but such are the risks that come with the gamble. Bryan Singer is the latest to join the club however, after “Jack the Giant Slayer” ($195 million) swiftly bombed at the box office this past weekend, earning just $27.2 million. 1 year 25 weeks ago via jackiechan
