  1. Neil Gaiman Reveals How He Horrified His Daughter In Reading Rainbow Interview

    Are you kidding me, Gaiman? You gave her THAT book?

    The amazing thing about Neil Gaiman is that his work transcends generations. Between his novels for adults and his children's books, there is something Gaiman for people of all ages. So, what better person to be an advocate for a new generation of young readers being introduced to the wonderful world of books through the new, digital Reading Rainbow?

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

    Today in things that make us scream incoherently

    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.

  3. This Carrie Themed Viral Video Has Some Pretty Sweet Practical Effects. Also, A Telekinetic Lady [Video]

    They're all gonna laugh at you!

    So there's a remake set to hit movie theaters pretty soon. we don't know how we feel about that yet. What we do know is that Thinkmodo, an NY viral marketing company that make movie tie-in "prank" videos, is really good at what it does. Case in point: this video of a lady throwing a dude at a coffee shop wall with her telekinetic powers.

  4. The Official Trailer for the Carrie Reboot

    Bloody Good Fun

    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. (via Sigrid Ellis.)

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

    i'll just leave this here

    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. (via Empire Online) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

    Things We Saw Today

    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)

  7. Director Kimberly Peirce Likens Carrie To a Superhero Origin Story

    Bloody Good Fun

    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.

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

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    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.

  13. Julianne Moore Is Getting Very Close to Making Chloe Moretz Homicidal in Carrie

    Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

    Rumor has it that Julianne Moore, who played a fabulously dysfunctional mother in Boogie Nights, is thisclose to playing the mother of Carrie White in Kimberly Peirce's upcoming remake starring Chloe Moretz. While the status (as of this writing) is that the actress is "in talks," some are saying this is all but a done deal. And this means we will get to watch Julianne Moore shame Chloe Moretz and her dirty pillows -- and then drive her to commit telekinetic murder. Who isn't going to want to watch that?

  14. Kimberly Peirce’s Remake of Carrie Will Have an Anti-Bullying Message

    This Makes Sense

    Everyone familiar with the movie (and the Stephen King novel) Carrie knows that the crux of the story lies in the relentless bullying of a teenage girl by her peers. And while bullying has existed since organic creatures developed the ability to judge each other, things are slightly different nowadays. People are (finally) a lot less tolerant of it, and those who try to write it all off as "kids being kids" are seen as negligent, trying to ignore a very big and enduring problem. And now, writer and director Kimberly Peirce, who is remaking Carrie, will try to keep the anti-bullying message alive.

  15. Hugo’s Chloë Moretz Has An Offer To Play Carrie In The Latest Remake

    I Guess I Can't Argue With That

    You know Chloë Moretz from her role as Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass as well as her more recent job, acting alongside Asa Butterfield in Hugo, but you soon may see her drenched in blood. She's in talks to star in Kimberly Peirce's (Boys Don’t Cry) Carrie remake.

  16. The Man Who Saved Spider-Man Will Rewrite Carrie

    Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

    After saving Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark from certain destruction (perhaps literal destruction), Robert Aguirre-Sacasa has booked some pretty excellent follow-up gigs, including a major gig at Glee but more importantly and awesomely, writing a new adaption of the Stephen King classic Carrie. Is it fair to say that we are witnessing the dawn of an amazing career? I believe it is.
