'Carrie' Remake Gets Original All Of A Sudden With Marketing Prank

You've been 'Punk'd'. Feeling the need to do something original after being universally panned for telling the same exact story again, the producers of the Carrie remake decided to devise a little marketing stunt. The ploy: have a girl freak out and go beserk with telekinesis in a crowded coffee shop and hope that nobody chokes on a scone. It's really well-done. Have a watch.

'Carrie' Remake Trailer: Does It Get Better?

That's not much new here beyond the special effects. 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.


The New 'Jonah Hex' Trailer is a Tired Rehash of the Original

Megan Fox (Left) speaks with Edward James Olmos (Right) between takes.If the latest installment of the Jonah Hex trailer series is any indication, Hollywood is officially out of ideas.The original trailer, which premiered last month, told the story of the upcoming Jonah Hex movie staring Josh Brolin as the titular cowboy bounty hunter who straddles the world of the living and the dead. The trailer also featured Megan Fox and John Malkovich, and was cheered by fans and critics alike for its non-stop action and witty dialogue.Although the new trailer features the entire original cast, the sequel squanders any good will earned by the first installment. It is nothing more than a tired rehash of its predecessor, devoid of any original ideas whatsoever. Brolin, Fox and Malkovich should be ashamed to be associated with this transparent marketing ploy which seems to have the singular purpose of selling movie tickets to eager fanboys.Watch the pathetic new Jonah Hex trailer after the jump.


The 'Hitman: Agent 47' Trailer is Here Because We Learned Nothing From the Original 'Hitman'

Someone put a bullet in this franchise already. "He’s stronger, faster, more intelligent than other people." So sayeth Spock (Zachary Quinto) about midway through the first trailer for Hitman: Agent 47, a.k.a the reboot of the movie no one wanted to see when it starred someone we actually knew back in 2007. Clearly, Quinto was not referring to anyone involved in this ill-conceived remake while delivering that horrible line of dialogue, as the trailer for Agent 47 manages to cram more cliches into two and a half minutes than its box office bomb of a predecessor was able to do in an hour and a half. A slow motion, CGI gunfight set to one of today's most popular songs? Check. A woman swimming topless in a pool? Check. Oh, and did I mention that Zachary Quinto delivers the line "He’s stronger, faster, more intelligent than other people" with 100% seriousness? Because yeah, that too. Check out the trailer for Hitman: Agent 47 above. It looks like a pile of sh*t, but plenty of things 'splode in it.


Watch The Original '30 Rock' Pilot Starring Rachel Dratch As Jenna

Is like watching TV in an alternate dimension. Where they speak English. Beamed to us from the same alternate universe where Eric Stoltz played Marty McFly in BTTF, comes this original, unaired 30 Rock pilot starring Rachel Dratch in the role of Jenna, before she was replaced by Jane Krakowski. The decision to recast was made when NBC decided to scale back the in-show sketches and go with a more traditional sitcom actress. But Fey wanted to keep her buddy in the mix so decided to have Dratch play a different character in each episode which is a really fun idea like when Loo-Kee would hide in the background of She-Ra: Princess of Power episodes. Only difference is Loo-Kee didn't get totally f*cked by the execs at Filmation.


'RoboCop' Remake Trailer!!!

They might have not screwed this up. The first trailer for Sony/MGM's Robocop reboot is here and, forgive me for saying, looks really good. Yes I know that 1987 original is a classic and there's some things that should not be messed with, but in the studio's defense, Samuel L. Jackson wasn't around back then. I don't want to live in a world where Samuel L. Jackson isn't in a movie about a robot cop. Elite Squad's José Padilha directs this update that sees OmniCorp looking to bring their success with drone warfare onto American soil by putting a RoboCop in every city. But they didn't count on the man inside the machine exerting his own sense of right and wrong. Get mad if you need to but I like what I see. At least he doesn't transform into a motorcycle.

Netflix Offers A Trailer For Its First Original Series, 'Lilyhammer'

Fans of Silvio Dante from 'The Sopranos', this is for you. That's right, Lilyhammer. Netflix first (and admittedly, lowest profile when compared to House of Cards and Arrested Development) original series follows The Sopranos' Steven Van Zandt as a mobster (!) who enters the witness protection program in Lillehammer, Norway. Of course, we watch him as a fish out of water in both civil matters, and, presumably, watch him fall back into the Scandinavian underworld. The entire series will be released at once starting on February 6, so you can plow through the eight episode first season run with no waiting. Judging from the trailer, getting through the series should take me about eight hours. This show looks pretty damn good, with a Coen-brothers sensibility; a balance of drama, action, and comedy. Yay February!
