This is going to be my first year attending New York Comic Con, and I've been very excited about it! Especially now that I've just learned that we will get to see our first footage from Sam Raimi's Evil Dead reboot and the new Carrie adaptation starring Chloe Grace Moretz. The first look footage will be shown on Saturday, October 13th at the Sony Pictures panel at the Javits Center.
Here are the details:
The panel presentations for Carrie and Evil Dead will take place between 3:45pm-4:45pm on October 13th.
Evil Dead's panel will include the film's star, Jane Levy (Suburgatory), producer (and star of original) Bruce Campbell and director, Fede Alvarez.
In the 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.
The Carrie panel will include the film's stars, Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, along with producer Kevin Misher and director Kimberly Peirce.
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.
New York Comic Con is taking place from October 11th-14th at the Javits Center (655 West 34th Street, New York).
