Deliver Us From Evil
The opening fifteen to twenty minutes of “Deliver Us From Evil” find co-writer and director Scott Derrickson delivering a pretty clear statement of intent. Within that span of time, soldiers in Iraq stumble across an unspeakable horror, a street weary detective finds a dead baby in a dumpster, and not long after, that same cop finds himself in the lion’s den at the zoo, with his gun drawn on two of the approaching big cats. There is nothing particularly subtle about Derrickson’s second time around exorcism genre, following 2005’s “The Exorcism Of Emily Rose,” and that’s part of the problem with this Jerry Bruckheimer produced exercise in horror (surprise, surprise).

Deliver Us From Evil, Ramirez
"We're talking. We've been talking," Edgar Ramirez told IGN when asked about whether or not his "Deliver Us From Evil" director Scott Derrickson has discussed the upcoming "Doctor Strange" with him and that's all it takes at the moment to get the rumor mill churning. There's no word if it's for the title role, the villain or something else, but considering the film doesn't have a release date yet, it would seem it's in early stages. But it would seem Marvel, if anything, is trying to get their ducks in a row and we suppose that for now, you can toss Ramirez onto a wishlist pile that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hardy and Jared Leto.

The Liberator
We're not sure Edgar Ramirez's career has quite shaken out the way we thought it might in the last few years. Having made his screen debut in "Domino," of all things, Ramirez ticked along appearing in things like "Vantage Point," "Che" and "The Bourne Ultimatum," before giving an explosively brilliant performance in Olivier Assayas' epic "Carlos." Since then, though, things have been a bit more mixed: Ramirez played the villain in the awful "Wrath of The Titans," was better in a tiny role in "Zero Dark Thirty," and will next appear in ropey-looking horror "Deliver Us From Evil," with the lead in the "Point Break" remake also on the way.

Deliver Us From Evil
The horror genre is continually trying to find new ways to scare audiences, and often that means twisting conventions into new shapes. So the idea of a fright flick in the guise of a cop movie is at least a pretty interesting one, even if the result still kinda looks like your usual exorcism/demon/creature movie.

Deliver Us From Evil
Here's a fun fact: Eric Bana made his name as a comedian in Australia before transitioning to the dramatic actor the rest of the world knows him as. You can thank Andrew Dominik's foresight to cast in him "Chopper" for that. And having proven his chops when it comes to moving the heart, Bana is now gonna try and scare the shit out of you with the upcoming "Deliver Us From Evil."

Despite the apex of the genre occurring forty years ago, the past few years has seen an increase in exorcism films: “The Rite,” “The Devil Inside,” and two at-bats for “The Last Exorcism” among others. And in case you forgot, last fall it was reported that “Sinister” director Scott Derrickson was heading back to the exorcism well (he wrote and directed 2005’s “The Exorcism Of Emily Rose”) with “Beware The Night” and he’s lined up a nifty cast to join Eric Bana.

Movies are a funny thing, sometimes developing through some oddball incarnations before finally firming up into something realistic. And so it goes for "Hands Of Stone," a boxing biopic that in 2010 had Gael Garcia Bernal and Al Pacino attached with Venezuelan helmer Jonathan Jakubowicz set to direct. That didn't happen, then last spring the movie cropped up again, only this time with the random assortment of R&B star Usher, "True Blood" dude Ryan Kwanten and Michelle Rodriguez, with Robert De Niro replacing Pacino. Well, part of that is still right.

Well, here's a film starring two arthouse faves that, at least thus far, won't be making a pit stop on the fall festival circuit. But set to open in France later this month, a trailer and new images provide a compelling look at the film.

Oh hey, Richard Kelly, remember him? He's the director who came out of the gate with promise after "Donnie Darko, and then squandered that goodwill with the bellyflop that was "Southland Tales" and then the horror movie no one saw called "The Box." For the past few years he's been trying to get "Corpus Christi" off the ground, and in fact, just over a year ago, he was hoping to pull together the financing to shoot it last summer. Obviously that didn't happen but a couple fellow genre specialists are helping him to get the movie rolling.
