Only Two of the 100 Top-Grossing Movies of the Year Were Directed by Women

We’ve written at length about how sexism and the film and TV industries negatively affects the number of women behind the screen, most noticeably when it comes to directing. Not that this it at all surprising, but the trend continued in 2013: Movies with female leads made bank, but of the 100 top-grossing movies of the year only two of them were directed by women.

Say that it’s because women must not want to direct as much as men do and I will spit fire at everything you love.

The Official Trailer for the Carrie Reboot

I could have put in a warning about how this gives away the end of the movie, but then I remembered that the original movie is thirty-seven years old and is based on a novel that’s going on forty. There’s a statute of limitations on this kind of thing.

I Want To Hug My Mommy After Seeing The New Carrie Poster

The Carrie remake has a new release date, October of this year, and that was probably a good idea. Scary things and October just make sense and all indications point to Carrie being very, very scary. For instance, this new poster featuring Carrie’s mom played by Julianne Moore. I’ll be under my covers if anyone needs me.

Right after Leia wakes up she grabs a blaster and shoots a Stormtrooper who’s sneaking up on Han. Agreed? Oh, and who’s going to step up and draw Han being unfrozen from carbonite by a True Love’s Kiss from Leia? (by Kevin Keele, via /Film)

Director Kimberly Peirce Likens Carrie To a Superhero Origin Story

I hate it when horror directors say things about their movies that make me want to see them, because I don’t like horror movies. I’m looking at you, Cabin in the Woods.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say I hate horror movies. Alien was certainly pretty great. I love scary books, and there’s pretty much no level of gore in comics that I won’t cackle gleefully at. But you’re talking to a chick who walked out her Film 101 screening of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre twenty minutes in. As soon as that one chick got hung on a meathook, I was done.

So, thanks, Kimberly Peirce, for saying really interesting things about your Carrie movie. Thanks a lot.

Chloe Moretz: Carrie Will Be Psychological Like Black Swan, Hopefully With Less Hangnails

The girl playing the titular star of Kimberly Peirce‘s Carrie remake, Chloe Moretz, has provided a little insight into how she’s approaching her new, iconic role. One part of her research: not conducting any research, just diving right into Carrie’s head. She’s also saying that her version of Carrie White will head to an even deeper, darker, mentally-unstable place, similar to where Natalie Portman headed in the psycho-thriller Black Swan. And cue all the guys hoping that Moretz will share a lady love scene with Mila Kunis.

But seriously, this Carrie might be even more screwed up than the original.
