It looks like it's time to destroy another prom.
Hit-Girl makes for quite the firestarter (wait, wrong movie) as Stephen King's woman scorned in "Carrie," the latest cinematic version of the old chestnut about a girl who can make things explode with her damn mind.
Hollywood keeps casting hotties as King's ugliest duckling, and this time we've got Chloe Moretz (who's growing up way too fast) as the high school student tormented by both her bullying classmates and her ultra-religious nutjob mama (Julianne Moore). We get a few highlights from Moore's deliciously over-the-top performance, though the trailer mostly focuses on the modern special effects technology that makes Carrie seem like a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
This supernatural revenge melodrama — and its iconic imagery — is so engrained in our pop culture consciousness that director Kimberly Peirce's new adaptation seems unnecessary at best. However, there are pleasures in this new version that transcend its inherent irrelevance — really, you need only say "Hit-Girl as Carrie" and it's movie magic.
Check out the trailer above, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. "Carrie" opens Oct. 18.
For the last three years, fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of the superhero sequel to end all superhero sequels, "Kick-Ass 2." And today, MTV and NextMovie are presenting the exclusive premiere of the first ever "Kick-Ass 2" trailer.
Now that's really kick-ass! (See what we did there?) Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• No one can make a "hard sell" movie (with A-list stars, anyway) quite like David Cronenberg. Rachel Weisz will be working with the "Cosmopolis" director and his two favorite leading men, Robert Pattinson and Viggo Mortensen, on "Map to the Stars," an extremist look at how there's no business like show business.
• We certainly have trouble telling Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader apart. Variety reports that the "Adventureland" buddies will play siblings in "The Skeleton Twins," the story of, well, twin siblings who manage to defy death on the same day and as a result take a long, hard look at their lives.
It ain't easy being a kid. And it's especially not easy being a kid who is growing up in the public spotlight like, say, Chloe Grace Moretz is. Just think about all the awkward, embarrassing moments of your own youth and then imagine them being plastered across the internet. Rough business.
So we can only imagine how gratifying it must have been for Moretz to step into the iconic role of Stephen King's "Carrie" and get a chance to enact some much deserved psychic payback against everyone who ever posted a nasty tweet about her.
Payback which you can get a first look at right here thanks to the new "Carrie" teaser. Get More »
You know what they say — one starlet's schedule conflict is another starlet's opportunity. (OK, so they don't really say that, but it's true.)
Case in point: as of last month, it girl Chloe Moretz was slated to star in the Portland-set indie drama, "The Wilderness of James." However, she has since had to drop out due to the production schedule for "Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall," leaving a gaping hole at the top of the cast list.
Enter Isabelle Fuhrman, the brunette beauty who will take Moretz's place. Get More »
You may know Chloe Moretz as the potty-mouthed Hit Girl in "Kick-Ass," but, in her latest film, "Dark Shadows," she steps back in time to the 1970s and gets a taste of the supernatural. But, when asked if she'd rather be a witch or a vampire, the 15-year-old takes a rather interesting approach. Get More »
Chloe Moretz is shaping up to be your go-to gal … for horror!
The "Let Me In" star is taking out her vampire fangs (such as they were) and applying some zombie makeup as she's in talks to play the undead title role in "Maggie," according to Variety.
"Maggie" takes place upon the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse and focuses on a father's unconditional love for his daughter, whom we assume has "turned." Moretz would be joining Paddy Considine ("Submarine"), who is in talks to play dear old dad. Get More »
In 2010, director Matthew Vaughn ("X-Men: First Class") co-wrote, directed, and self-financed a superhero movie all true-blue comic book fans could believe in, one with swears, huge body counts and a 10-year-old girl who murders criminals.
Now, after a couple years of intense speculation, "Kick-Ass" is getting a sequel, and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Vaughn is shopping it to Universal as opposed to his Lionsgate partners on the previous entry. The actors who brought a wired energy to the characters of wannabe vigilantes Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson), Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and the foul-mouthed Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz) are all expected to reprise their antics.

Oddball director Tim Burton continues his association with mancrush Johnny Depp in "Dark Shadows," their eighth collaboration together.
Based on the late-'60s TV soap opera of the same name, the story follows 200-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins (Depp) as he awakens in the 1970s to find his family on the verge of ruin. This campy take on the cult series should be ghoulish fun in an "Addams Family" vein.
Chloe Grace Moretz has been called a lot of things over the last couple of years — a superb talent, an up and coming star, Hit Girl — but the new red band trailer for her latest films proves there's one thing you should never call her: A "Hick."
And yeah, this trailer is red band for a reason.
Co-starring Blake Lively, Alec Baldwin and "My Week with Marilyn's" Eddie Redmayne, "Hick" features Moretz as a young gal who runs away from her dirt poor home to seek a new beginning out on the open road. Instead she finds trouble a whole boatload of trouble when she runs afoul of Redmayne's down low drifter. Get More »
