Update! The trailer is premiering tonight, so keep your eyes on Shock around 9pm Pacific!
ShockTillYouDrop.com has been tipped off that Sony has prepped a new trailer for the Evil Dead remake and we’re going to be seeing it debut very, very soon. I know, I’m well aware this is a rather vapid news item, but we’ve been fielding questions as to when a new preview will arrive. According to our source, the trailer clocks in at 2:12. I’m suspecting we’ll see it land in the next two weeks or so.
Directed by Fede Alvarez and produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell, the film follows five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths 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.
Look for it April 12th.
