Carrie

A couple generations after Brian de Palma first brought it to the big screen, Stephen King‘s Carrie is getting a new cinematic interpretation this fall by director Kimberly Peirce. The first teaser trailer hit all the way back last year, and we’ve had plenty of blood-soaked posters since then, but now we finally have a full-length trailer that offers a better idea of Peirce’s updated vision.

This version of the tale stars Chloë Grace Moretz as the telekinetic teen, and Julianne Moore as her unhinged religious mother. Gabriella Wilde, Portia Doubleday, Ansel Elgort, Alex Russell, and Judy Greer also appear. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Broadcast begins June 24, and the network has just released the first actual look at the show. It’s a one-minute long behind the scenes featurette that has some footage featuring the town, the cast, and some of the effects. Check out the video below. Read More »

Nestled among the many blockbuster movie ads last night was the first teaser for Under the Dome, CBS’ upcoming supernatural drama based on Stephen King‘s novel and produced by Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Entertainment. CBS clearly has incredibly high hopes for the series, having given it a straight-to-series 13-episode order and bypassing the pilot process altogether.

Whether those expectations will be met remains unclear, as the first teaser didn’t actually show off any footage at all. But it looks pretty cool, which is enough for now. Watch it after the jump.
