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

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.
i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you
The girl playing the titular star of Kimberly Peirce
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.
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
This Makes Sense
Everyone familiar with the movie (and the Stephen King
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
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
, but you soon may see her drenched in blood. She's in talks to star in Kimberly Peirce's
(Boys Don’t Cry) Carrie
All this has happened before...
We love the original Carrie
from 1976. Even though it strayed a bit away from Stephen King's
classic novel there's uncomfortable menstruation scenes, uncomfortable prom scenes and comfortable dirty pillows to be had. Well it seems Hollywood is ready to take yet another crack at it but this time they've done something very interesting. They want Kimberly Peirce
, the director of Boys Don’t Cry
, for the job. Alright, you've got my attention.
