The red-band trailer for Peter Farrelly‘s Movie 43 leaned hard on the shock factor of seeing big Hollywood stars revel in foul language and filthy jokes, but the poor green-band trailer is stuck trying to sell the exact same product by only hinting at what the NSFW version could actually show. Is Anna Faris asking Chris Pratt to take a dump on her still comedy gold when the word “poop” has to be substituted with a fart noise? Is Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts bullying their own kid still shocking when they have to keep their behavior G-rated?

Eh, truthfully, I think the answer is that none of this looked all that outrageous to begin with. But at least it’s not any less funny than it was before. Hit the jump to see Hugh Jackman, Gerard ButlerKate Winslet, Halle Berry, Stephen MerchantEmma Stone, Kristen Bell, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Duhamel, Terrence Howard, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloë Grace Moretz, Seann William Scott, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen BellRichard Gere, and so, so, so many more celebs in the new SFW trailer.

‘Carrie’ Teaser Trailer: Burn, Bullies, Burn!

MGM and Screen Gems just debuted footage from Kimberly Peirce‘s new film version of Stephen King‘s debut novel Carrie at the New York Comic Con over this past weekend, but isn’t wasting any time getting something online. While fans often have to wait months (or more) before seeing trailers that play at the San Diego Comic Con, a teaser trailer for Carrie is now online.

The trailer cuts right to the chase, too, with a slow flight in to the burning hell unleashed by Carrie White (Chloe Grace Moretz) after her first high school prom experience goes, er, badly.

Just because we’ve already seen and loved the original Carrie, Robocop, and Evil Dead doesn’t mean we can’t be curious about the remakes.

Part of the narrative surrounding the creation of Kimberly Peirce‘s new adaptation of Stephen King‘s debut novel Carrie is that the film will hew closer to the novel than did Brian De Palma’s classic version, and therefore differ substantially from it. That may end up being true, and yet the first two official photos from the film highlight the similarities between Peirce’s new version and De Palma’s original.

Which is to say, here we’ve got one photo showing Carrie (Chloë Grace Moretz), after being doused in pig blood at the climax of her first prom experience, which is also the beginning of the story’s violent explosion of repressed young sexuality and frustration. The other shows Julianne Moore as Carrie’s rigidly religious mother, who acts as the girl’s primary repressor. See both images in full below. Read More »

Whereas the first movie concentrated on a small group of costumed vigilantes, Kick-Ass 2 widens the scope to bring in new allies for both the heroes and the villains. The latest additions to the good guy side are Morris Chestnut (Boyz n the Hood), who’ll be helping out Chloë Moretz‘s Hit-Girl, and Robert Emms (War Horse), who’ll join forces with Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson).

As for when we’ll actually get to see Chestnut, Emms, and everyone else engaged in battle, Universal’s just set a summer 2012 release. That puts the sequel just over two years after the original, which isn’t a bad pace considering Kick-Ass 2 looked unlikely to happen at all until a few months ago. More details after the jump.

Given that Brian De Palma’s 1976 Carrie is revered as a classic of horror cinema, it’s tough to avoid thinking of Kimberly Peirce‘s new version of Carrie as a remake. But strictly speaking, it’s not a rehash of De Palma’s version but rather a fresh interpretation of Stephen King‘s original 1974 novel. And Peirce and screenwriter Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa seem to be working hard to make the story their own.

The new Carrie will be set in the modern day rather than in the ’70s, and star Chloë Moretz has previously described it as “a more Black Swan version” of the story. So how will that translate onscreen, exactly? Check out the first pic of Moretz in costume and the new official synopsis after the jump.

Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow had really better hope those talks with star Chloë Grace Moretz go well. In volume 2 of the comic book series by Mark Millar that inspired the movie, Moretz’s Hit-Girl character is somewhat sidelined because (this is a possible spoiler) she ultimately gives up her superhero persona. But Wadlow said over the weekend that he planned to make Hit-Girl, aka Mindy Macready, “a major, major part of the film,” and now we know exactly how major that is.

According to Millar, Kick-Ass 2 will open with 30 minutes centered on the Hit-Girl character before shifting focus back to the titular Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson). Read his comments after the jump.
