It’s been a short spell since word on the Sam Raimi-produced “Evil Dead” remake had advanced, as last we heard the cast was finalized and production was ticking away in New Zealand, away from the naysayers’ vitriol. However, while initial fan-rage may have simmered, or been completely forgotten about in the interim, Bruce Campbell ,star of Sam Raimi's original trilogy, recently provided some updates on the remake that attempt to smooth over those qualms completely.

So how much fun is it hanging out on set with folks like Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo and more, and making a movie that winds up earning over $1 billion at the box office?

There are few actresses working today whose CV is as interesting or diverse as that of Juno Temple, but the past few months have shown just how diverse her range can be. This summer, not only did she have a small role in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises," but she also featured much more prominently as one of the key characters in William Friedkin's outrageous "Killer Joe." And as the season winds down, we'll see another avenue for her talents in the indie flick "Little Birds."

For cinephiles at least, one of the most anticipated releases of the summer is the Keanu Reeves-produced documentary “Side By Side,” not only for its essential film vs. digital debate, but even more for the incredible behind-the-scenes talent lined up for interviews. Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh, and Christopher Nolan all make appearances in the film, and now Tribeca Films have released the latest in their series of outtakes, this time featuring the inimitable director of “Avatar” and “Titanic.”

For all his prolific work across a number of mediums, James Franco's ability to write and direct is, for the most part, still an unknown quantity. He's done a few shorts, and two documentaries, but his three feature films so far -- the comedy "The Ape," the Sal Mineo biopic "Sal," and Hart Crane tale "The Broken Tower" -- haven't exactly become big hits or critical favorites. However, his latest endeavor might change that.
