New York Comic Con is revving up today in Manhattan, and while not much is going on there that is of interest to us until the weekend, it looks like a few things are already being revealed. Collider is on the scene, snapping pictures, and trained their lens on these promo banners for Screen Gems' remakes of CARRIE and THE EVIL DEAD. Check them out above and below.
Obviously, there isn't much to look at, but these banners could still indicate the way Screen Gems is leaning when it comes to crafting their publicity material for the two horror films. Expect to see more from both flicks in the coming days.
Meanwhile, the panel presentations for CARRIE and EVIL DEAD will take place between 3:45pm-4:45pm on Saturday, October 13th. The CARRIE panel will include the film's stars, Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, along with producer Kevin Misher and director Kimberly Peirce. EVIL DEAD's panel will include the film's star, Jane Levy ("Suburgatory"), producer (and star of original) Bruce Campbell and director, Fede Alvarez.
Carrie is a reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloe Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom. Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King and directed by Kimberly Peirce with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. The film will be released nationwide on March 15, 2013.
In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, EVIL DEAD finds five twenty-something friends holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they 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. Directed by Fede Alvarez, with a screenplay by Alvarez & Rodo Sayagues Mendez, the film will be released nationwide on April 12, 2013.
