We’ve got a couple of quick news stories for you this afternoon. First up, Bruce Campbell has tweeted that Fede Alvarez‘ remake of Evil Dead has taken up The Heat‘s vacated April 5th date, which means it will be going up against Jurassic Park 3D at the box office. So who would win a fight: deadites or dinosaurs? [Answer: Dinosaurs. Dinosaurs always win unless they’re faced with their natural enemy, Meteors.] Evil Dead, which originally had an NC-17 rating, will premiere at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival.
In other news, The Playlist reports that A Good Day to Die Hard will be by far the shortest Die Hard yet with a runtime of 97 minutes. For comparison, Die Hard is 131 minutes, Die Hard 2 is 124 minutes, Die Hard with a Vengeance is 131 minutes, and Live Free or Die Hard is 128 minutes. So Die Hard 1 and 3 are the best in the series and they both run 131 minutes. Coincidence? Yes.
