    Sam Raimi's 'Evil Dead' Remake Is Getting Some Script Help From Diablo Cody

    After endless promises and "confirmations" about the long brewing new "Evil Dead" movie, the Internet was taken by surprise yesterday when a flurry of info hit the web that indicated it was no longer a mere pipe dream. Word was that the film was gearing up for production in Detroit and that Sam Raimi’s regular collaborator, editor Bob Murawski, who worked with Raimi on all three “Spider-Man” films and “Drag Me to Hell” before winning an Oscar for “The Hurt Locker,” was also going to be involved in some capacity. By the end of the day, it was revealed that Fede Alvarez, who made the hyped robot invasion short “Panic Attack!” that nabbed him a ...

    Just like Warner Bros.' "Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows," cheap bootlegged footage from Entertainment Tonight made its way online from Steven Soderbergh's virus thriller "Contagion" today.

    Interview: Errol Morris Talks The Anxiety Of Making 'Tabloid' & Finding The Laughter In His Films

    In a time where documentaries are made cheaply and are often no more than glossy, agenda-pushing propaganda bulleted lists, filmmakers like Errol Morris seem even more admirable. Starting in 1978 with the amusing "Gates of Heaven" (which followed a number of people who had beloved animals buried in a California pet cemetery), the man alternated between scrutinizing the weird and picking apart the political, triumphing in both camps due to both his respectful and prudent attitude.

    Harvey Weinstein and His Mommy Pleaser, "Sarah's Key"

    Never judge a movie by its poster when it comes to The Weinstein Company. Last year when Harvey and co. dropped the first poster for "The King's Speech" my jaw hit the floor...and not in a good way (see above to get an idea). But hey, that film went on to win Best Picture at the Oscars, so who am I ...

    A Yiddish-Speaker Sees "Romeo and Juliet in Yiddish."

    You don't have to find the Yiddish language inherently amusing to get something out of "Romeo and Juliet in Yiddish" -- which is currently playing at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Elinor Bunin Monroe Film Center -- but it helps. A linguistic oddity with oodles of charm, it cleverly satirizes...
