Point #1- New Evil Dead Remake Trailer [screenshot above];
"Well, holy fuck." those are quite literally the words that fell from my mouth when seeing this new trailer. [which can be found here] It's obviously NSFW because it's the red-band version of the trailer; meaning if there's blood [and there is A LOT of it], they're gonna show it. I was fairly skeptical about this movie at first; being a fan of the original [and being someone who doesn't like remakes too often- some exceptions] However, after seeing the first trailer, I noticed elements from the original that this remake is incorporating into it. [Not like "A Nightmare On Elm Street" 's remake which changed the story and character names..ugh] This being said, I'm still upset at the idea that the character Ash isn't in this version; but maybe this is a good thing- leaving Ash to the original. What also has my attention for this remake, is knowing that unlike most horror movies now a days, this one has ZERO CGI in it. for more screenshots from the trailer, visit BloodyDisgusting's post on the movie here
Point #2- Carrie remake has been pushed to October 2013;
Wait, I thought the teaser poster said it was supposed to be SPRING 2013.. yeah, "supposed to be". If you go through my old posts, I actually mentioned that I was excited for this remake, because the cast seems fantastic. [not to mention, it feels like a good time for a "Carrie" remake and Hollywood would have gotten to it eventually] sigh, and to make matters more depressing- this remake hasn't even got a full trailer out yet.. meaning we have to deal with a minute long teaser trailer and little to no photos about this remake for the next few months.. or at least until an actual trailer comes out; which hopefully will be soon. It better be worth the wait.
Point #3- SPOILER ALERT! The Amazing Spider-Man dies in newest issue [#700];
I know, I know.. I wasn't exactly impressed either. However, Marvel has taken a risk and killed of Spider-Man in not one, but two of their "Marvel-Universes". First, Peter Parker died in Ultimate Spider-Man [which happens to be my favorite retelling of the Web Swinger.] & now they kill him off in Amazing Spider-Man?! What in the actual fuck? Now hold on.. Let's not just jump at the idea that Spidey is dead for good.. I mean, let's think of other famous comic characters who have died multiple times, just to come back in a later issue. Batman died a few times [yet came back] and even Superman.. wait, I don't think he counts. He's a fucking alien. Of course he'll come back by a black version of his suit.. sigh, I don't get it either. Back to the original point, who's to say he died for good? Although Miles Morales is the new Ultimate Spider-Man, Peter Parker still showed up [although earlier claimed dead] in an issue to help him defeat a few baddies.. What do you think? Is Spider-Man really dead, or is Marvel trying to kill us all with feelings of sorrow?
As mentioned before, this is the new format of how the blog posts will be laid out, because I find it easier, and a little bit nicer looking. [gotta have a nice formatted blog, am I right?] As mentioned above, I will be be back to school on Monday, [and it's the only day this week I work..weird] so you can expect multiple posts from me through out the week; feel free to follow me on Twitter here , or on Tumblr here . You can also 'like' the Facebook fan page for this blog here, which would be awesome ! I hope everyone has an awesome rest of the weekend, & I'll talk to you all through out the coming weeks ! CHEERS.
