Sony Pictures has released a new take on the previously released teaser poster for Evil Dead, and we have it for you to check out. In case you missed our previous coverage, it was announced that the movie will be released one week earlier, so mark your calendars for April 5th.
For those who are looking to see it even earlier, Evil Dead will have its world premiere at SXSW in March and we should have some coverage of that event coming your way next month. We recently mentioned that the original cut of Evil Dead was NC-17 and needed to be cut down to receive an R rating. It has officially been given an R rating from the MPAA for “strong bloody violence and gore, some sexual content and language.”
Evil Dead was directed by Fede Alvarez and sees a new cast of characters discovering the Necronomicon:
“Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.
A core cast of young, fresh talent includes Jane Levy (Suburgatory) as Mia; Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red Riding Hood) as David; Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) as Eric; Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) as Olivia and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker) as Natalie.”
