We all know the story: repressed, lonely, bullied teen becomes a laughing stock at prom and goes apeshit telekinetic, killing all of her tormentors. Now Carrie is back for a new generation because iPhones.

While the teaser seemed generally chilling and inventive, there isn’t much on display in this trailer that points to a fresh take. However, this is our first look at Julianne Moore as Carrie’s over-religious mom. She, of course, nails it even if this type of character seems extremely out of place in modern day. I think it’s time to hold judgement but in future previews I’d like to see an example of what sets this update apart from its predecessor besides the hairstyles.

In 2010, a film came into our lives so blood-soaked and politically-incorrect that we were powerless not to love it. And now, we get a second helping.

Though they’ve tweaked their names a little bit in the past few years, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Moretz are back in fighting shape to take on the criminal sleaze of New York City. However, Christopher Mintz-Plasse is back too and out for revenge by reinventing himself as the world’s first supervillian, The Motherfucker. Jim Carrey also joins the cast as another wannabe hero taking back the streets with the help of his well-trained dog. I’m a sucker for a dog in costume. God forbid any harm fall on that animal. We’ll find out June 28th.

The teaser for the Carrie remake picks up where Brian De Palma’s original ended. We see the ill-fated prom burning to the ground but the camera pushes beyond to see the entire town burning and crumbling in Chloe Grace Moretz’s wake. Child actors, man.

The post ‘Kick-Ass 2′ Is Happening appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
The 2010 movie Kick-Ass was a surprise hit, earning more money than any movie featuring unfamiliar “superhero” characters (including children) doing horrifyingly violent things would ever be expected to. But, nothing changes mainstream acceptability like success, so now there are plans for a sequel, at least according to the first movie’s star Aaron Johnson:

“It’s pretty much set to go, this fall. I think now Chloe [Grace Moretz] and Chris [Mintz-Plasse] are on board. I’m certainly set up to do it. Jeff Wadlow is to direct. Yeah, I think it’s going to happen.”

Evidently the director of the first movie, Matthew Vaughn, has moved on to bigger and brighter superhero franchises with X-Men: First Class. But Johnson has gone on to confirm that the sequel will retain the hard-R-rated violence that made the first movie so, uh, R-rated. Add to that a likely cameo from Nicolas Cage, and it looks like all the fans of the first Kick-Ass will be mighty pleased with Kick-Ass 2. (The Playlist)

Get ready for Zach Braff to become a household name again. He got a lot of attention with the success of Garden State and then a lot of criticism with the backlash against Garden State. Now, he’s hoping that enough time has passed and he’ll be able to appear on screen without critical groaning.

He’s set to join Jessica Biel and Chloe Moretz in Th Devil And The Deep Blue Sea. The film follows a man grieving the loss of his wife. He befriends a young girl and agrees to help her build a raft to cross the Atlantic.

That’s really no way to cope with grief. Yes, sending Chloe Moretz off to certain doom may seem appealing at first, but what you’ve really got to do is just get back out there. Try online dating. The risk of doing time for endangering a minor is way, way less. (Movieline)

Tim Burton is busy luring more children to the set of Dark Shadows. More specifically, he’s busy luring them from the set of The Invention On Hugo Cabret. First, Gulliver McGrath signed on to be creeped out by the exceptionally pale clique of Burton, Johnny Depp, and Helena Bonham Carter. Now Kick Ass‘s Hit Girl, Chloe Moretz has signed as well.

Moretz will play Carolyn. She’s the daughter of Michelle Pfeiffer‘s Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, who is the reclusive matriarch of the Collins clan and owner of the Collinwood mansion where the story is set. Moretz should fit in nicely on set considering her resume is already heavy with genre films. She’s used to be bloodied up between Kick Ass, Let Me In, and the tween gladiator battles she likely had to win to earn so much success at such a young age. (Deadline)

The post Juliette Lewis Cast To Type In ‘Hick’, Also ‘A Single Shot’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Juliette Lewis is carving out a bit of a niche for herself in smaller independent films like last year’s Conviction. And while it hurts me to report that A-list stardom might not be in Lewis’ future, I’m a professional, so I will press on. She’s been cast in the indie meth-drama Hick, presumably as a hick. Her fellow hicks in the hick-pic will be Chloe Moretz, Eddie Redmayne and Blake Lively.

The lovely and talented Ms. Lewis has also been cast in A Single Shot with Alessandro Nivola and William H. Macy. Here’s a plot synopsis:

A Single Shot follows a man who, while on a deer-poaching expedition, accidentally shoots and kills a woman. While the man is trying to cover up the misdeed, he comes across a sack of money and a killer who’s after it.”

That sounds pretty cool. I hope Juliette Lewis isn’t playing the woman who gets shot! (via Collider)

Chloe Moretz, Lyndsy Fonseca, Emma Roberts, Saoirse Ronan, Kaya Scodelario, Emily Browning and Shailene Woodley are just a few of the actresses who are up for the lead in the high profile adaptation of the bestselling young adult novel The Hunger Games. Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Jennifer Lawrence are also in the running for the part of the poor teenage girl who offers to compete in the titular game, a televised fight to the death. According to Entertainment Weekly, there are upwards of thirty actresses in contention for this role. Considering many of these buzzed about actresses, including Ronan, Moretz, Roberts, and Steinfeld, are all top contenders for the role, perhaps they should have their own televised fight to to death. They could film it and release in on DVD a week before The Hunger Games comes out on March 23, 2012. Just spitballing here. (The Playlist)

Martin Scorsese’s Hugo Cabret is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, being that it’s Martin Scorsese using 3D for the first time. OK, so I’ll pay for 3D glasses one more time, but if this disappoints me, I’m done with 3D. For real this time.

Anyway, it looks like I’ll be strapping those goddamn goggles to my head even sooner than I thought, thanks to a deal with Paramount. Now the movie is going to be shown on Thanksgiving, so you can drag all of your relatives to a midnight showing.

Hugo Cabret has Asa Butterfield as the Hugo, an orphaned boy living in a Parisian train station. It also stars Chloe Moretz, Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jude Law, Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Ray Winstone, all fine people to share a Thanksgiving meal with.

Chloe Moretz, the 13 year old breakout star of buzz movies like Kick Ass and Let Me In, has been tweeting up a storm (@chloegmoretz) about all manner of things, most recently that she’s in New York. Why is she in New York, you ask? To shoot an episode of NBC’s”30 Rock!” This is good news for people who like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cheddar cheese and pretzel Combos, and the Run DMC/Aerosmith collabo “Walk This Way.” Moretz was by FAR the best thing about Kick Ass, and “30 Rock” is all that is right with single camera sitcoms, so this appears to be a match made in showbiz heaven. There are no details on her role on the show yet, but one could speculate that she plays a gun toting vampire who murders everyone that works at the fictional sketch show “TGS.”   (Vulture)

Lovers of Let The Right One In, I have some good news for you. Matt Reeves didn’t eff up the movie you cherish so dearly. In fact, he might have even improved upon it, even though you didn’t think such a feat was possible. Let Me In is both a chilling and poignant horror tale that doesn’t stray too far from the original adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel. Unfortunately that could also be what bites it in the ass.

I don’t hold Let The Right One In in such high regard, which is probably a positive for Let Me In viewing. I didn’t go into the theater with a chip on my shoulder or a demand to be proven wrong. What impressed me most about Let Me In were the once again compelling performances by a new cast of actors. Kodi Smit-McPhee (the boy from The Road) plays Owen, an introverted kid who’s dealing with his parents’ spiteful divorce at home and the torment of masochistic bullies at school. How he walks straight after the wedge they lay on him, I’m still trying to decipher.

Abby (Chloe Moretz) arrives at Owen’s apartment complex just in the nick of time, when he’s running low and friends and options for surviving in the locker room. The two twelve-year-olds (more or less that age, in Abby’s case) form an immediate connection on the snow-topped playground equipment in the courtyard. Owen finds it odd that Abby walks barefoot without the consequence of losing her toes, but that doesn’t stop him from opening up to her about his troubles and handing over his Rubix cube.

The troubles that plague Abby are kept from Owen, and rightly so. Her caregiver (Richard Jenkins) forges out into the Los Alamos, New Mexico cold nightly to find his vampire cross to bear some blood. But he’s getting sloppy, and what are supposed to be quick drain jobs turn into unmitigated disasters. Jenkins does a terrific job as the browbeaten, exhausted custodian of a demanding vampire child. Abby lays into him when he fails to deliver, but she can hardly be held accountable for her intense desire to drink to survive.

As Owen and Abby get closer, the bodies around them pile up, forcing the Policeman (Elias Coteas) to delve deeper into the strange happenings around town. Coteas plays the role well, but seems just as morose and tired as Jenkins. Perhaps seasonal depression is running just as rampant as vampires are in N.M.

Director and writer Matt Reeves doesn’t shy away from the emotional complexity or intense violence that made the Let The Right One In such a standout film in the genre. Alright, maybe he doesn’t shine a light on Abby’s absence of sex organs, but I promise you won’t miss that fact as much as I’m sure she does. Staying so true to the original adaptation begs the question if a remake was even necessary, but considering most remakes aren’t, I’d mar Let Me In as both a successful and worthwhile one. If you’re a fan of the material, you’ll remain a fan. If you’re brand new to it, you should find yourself drawn to Reeves’s take. If you like vampires that sparkle, the copious amounts of blood and character depth in Let Me In may frighten you.

Finally, a Hollywood project that involves vampires. Let Me In, directed by Cloverfield's Matt Reeves, is the story of a awkward boy who unknowingly befriends a young vampire girl. Of course by "young," I mean "young looking." She's probably hundreds of years old since she's a goddamn vampire. At any rate, before too long, people end up getting drained of their blood, the local law enforcement starts to take notice, and this kid realizes his new friend is a monster. I'm sure it ends with the two of them being elected king and queen at the big middle school dance. If you like the vampire genre, you'll probably like this. If not, you'll still be able to enjoy Elias Koteas with a mustache, which looks awesome. Watch the Let Me In trailer after the jump...

Kick-Ass
R, 118m., 2010
Cast: Aaron Johnson, Chloe Mortez, Christopher Mitz-Plasse, Mark Strong, and Nicolas Cage
Directed by Matthew Vaughn
Screenplay by Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn based upon the Mark Millar comic

Kick-Ass is a bloody, head-on exploration into the overactive mind of the modern teenager.

Based on the graphic novel series by Mark Millar of “Wanted” comic book fame, Kick-Ass tells the story of a typical, bored high-schooler. David Lizewski (played with breezy and natural charisma by newcomer Aaron Johnson), who one day decides to buy a wet suit and become a superhero like all the heroes in his ever growing comic book collection, becomes an internet sensation when defending a lonely junkie from punks. His new alter eg Kick-Ass is immediately born.

Meanwhile a father and daughter duo (played with menacing aw-shuck glee by Nicolas Cage and Chloe Mortez) going by the name of Big Daddy and Hit-Girl are taking down the New York City mob run by Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong in his ever prevalent modern day English villain role) and his wannabe superhero son Chris, a.k.a. Red Mist, (Christopher Mintz-Plasse in signature voice-cracking mode).

What makes the film so accessible to both fan boys and regular moviegoers is the way director Matthew Vaughn handles much of the dark material. The film contains a lot of gun play with kids and moments of brutal torture, but because the film is shot in a lot of bright and clear areas, the New York Cit skyline looks very much like a comic book and the violence moves quick at times. Vaughn and his crew are able to keep it at a fun distance.

Another one of Vaughn’s touches is his use of music. Like his previous film Layer Cake, the blend of modern techno beats, pop music, and classic Ennio Morricone stand-off music amplifies the movie’s characters into their own intro music. Never will you hear Joan Jett and the Black Heart’s “Bad Reputation” the same again after you’ve heard it while little Chloe Mortez takes down a group of goons in pure John Woo fashion.

Mortez as Mindy Macready, a.k.a. Hit-Girl, finds herself in a interesting situation as both character and actress in this film. Here’s the most bad-ass chick we’ve seen on screen all year. Yet, she’s only 11-years-old and finds herself in the battle between liberation and anti-NRA parents, who may faint at the site of a young pistol packing heroine.

Kick-Ass as a comic book film gets the job done well and bloody, putting itself up there with select group of successful comic book movies like Spider-Man 2 and The Dark Knight. The important thing to remember about adapting a successful comic book into a successful movie is simple: always remember the characters first and the action will follow forward as needed.

Kick-Ass knows this very well and gives it to us like a KAPOW! in the kisser.

Grade: B+

New ‘Kick-Ass’ Red Band Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/new-kick-ass-red-band-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/new-kick-ass-red-band-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Those tissues aren't for the tears. The new red band trailer for Kick-Ass tackles a subject very near and dear to all teenagers. The protagonist's dedication to making regular spank bank donations leads him to a higher calling: kicking ass without the help of super powers. I thought I'd be sick of more Kick-Ass footage, but the new trailer succeeds in its attempt to get me even more amped up. I'm thinking of stretching a pair of my neighbor's pantyhose over my head and putting an end to crime. I'll then be arrested for breaking into my neighbor's house and stealing her pantyhose, a charge I'll vehemently defend as a necessary evil.  Check out the trailer below.

‘Kick-Ass’ Red-Band International Trailer Features Lyndsy Fonseca http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kick-ass-red-band-international-trailer-features-lyndsy-fonseca/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kick-ass-red-band-international-trailer-features-lyndsy-fonseca/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 That's Lyndsy Fonseca, and she's in the new international red-band trailer for Kick-Ass. The trailer also features some new footage, a good story summary, and Chloe Moretz spouting out a particularly filthy word, but the quick glimpses of Lyndsy alone are worth the key strokes for the age-gate. If you don't watch Desperate Housewives or How I Met Your Mother than you probably are not aware of Lyndsy's winning smile, but you will be soon. I'm even considering seeing Hot Tub Time Machine so I can get a side of Fonseca with my overly broad concept comedy fix.By the way, the word Chloe (Hit Girl) says is "cock." A brain-tingling word like that and they gave it to the jail bait. Laaaaaamesville.Check out the international red-band trailer here.
