Marvel Studios Has Shut Down Pre-Production on ‘Blade’ Reboot

Bruce Campbell has taken to Twitter this afternoon to thank Evil Dead fans for making Evil Dead Rise a smash hit in theaters, the film officially passing $100 million worldwide!

Evil Dead Rise is now officially the highest grossing film in the entire Evil Dead franchise, with Evil Dead 2013’s box office total ending at $97.5 million (unadjusted for inflation).

With a budget of just $19 million, Evil Dead Rise is needless to say a massive success, and it surely won’t be very long before the franchise finds its way back into theaters. We had to wait a full 10 years between Evil Dead and Evil Dead Rise. Expect a shorter wait this time around.

The best aspect of this success story? As you may recall, Evil Dead Rise was at one point in time going straight-to-HBO Max. New Line/WB sure dodged a bullet with that one.

Meagan Navarro writes in her Evil Dead Rise review for BD, “Evil Dead Rise is an absolute crowd pleaser that’s best enjoyed with a rowdy crowd of fellow fans.”
