Cool Videos: Watch Max Landis and Haley Joel Osment get slapped in the face

A couple of months ago, a video of 20 strangers kissing for the first time hit YouTube and caused a stir by featuring same sex couples locking lips. With 84 million hits to it's credit, the video was ripe for parody. Who better than renowned button pusher Max Landis to come up with the best one.

Top 10 Remakes of All Time

Brian De Palma's CARRIE is a classic, but a flawed one. With that in mind, a remake is not as terrible an idea as it would be if it were THE EXORCIST or CASABLANCA. While good remakes are usually the exception to the rule, there have been a good number of excellent remakes that surpass the original. Here are the ten best remakes ever made and why they are better than their predecessors. If...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Chloe Grace Moretz, star of the Carrie remake!

In a way, we should have all seen this coming. Simply following the gallons of fake 'karo syrup' blood in Chloe Grace Moretz's trails, from THE AMITYVILLE HORROR to KICK-ASS to LET ME IN, her career has culminated to the blood soaked prom night of CARRIE. It's surprising then to consider just how different the character is from any she has played before. It's without...

Review: Carrie

PLOT: Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz) is an outcast at her high school, where she’s mercilessly bullied by local queen bee Chris Hargensen ( Portia Doubleday ). Feeling pity for her, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde) convinces her nice-guy jock boyfriend ( Ansel Elgort ) to take her to the prom, but she doesn’t know that Chris has a terrible surprise in store for Carrie....

Exclusive 1:1 interview with director Kimberly Peirce for her remake of Carrie!

Kimberley Pierce is one of the few directors I considered a cinematic genius out of the gate with her freshman film BOYS DON'T CRY, a movie so damn powerful I find myself literally quivering in anxiety whenever I revisit it. I can't stress i enough, that picture is a masterpiece. So when I heard she'd be tackling a full fledged studio horror picture a year ago, I flipped like a giddy...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Julianne Moore for the remake of Carrie!

Julianne Moore... What else is there to say? I've had the pleasure interviewing a lot of wonderful actors, talented filmmakers and even a hero or two (at least to me) in my time at JoBlo but I can't recall getting this feeling I had when I sat down with Julianne Moore... this was a legend. A certified legend. No, really! Just two days prior to our chat Julianne received a star on the...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Judy Greer for her role as Ms. Desjardin in Carrie!

Pop quiz hot-shot, name one person who doesn't freaking love Judy Greer? BAM. That's what I thought, you can't. That's ok, I don't know any either. In fact I couldn't help but relay to Ms. Greer my excitement when I heard she was cast as the crucial role of Ms. Desjardin in Kimberley Pierce's CARRIE adaptation. It's not an easy role for an actress but a vital one, as she is often said...

So say you go into Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts to grab your necessary cup of coffee then suddenly two patrons start to argue. Eh, no big deal until one of them displays telekinetic abilities. How do you react? Do you scream, look on in horror, or immediately break out your cell phone to record this bizarre moment for YouTube? The marketing team behind the upcoming remake of CARRIE...

New TV spot for Carrie remake unleashes the fury of ChloŽ Grace Moretz!

Another TV spot for the remake of CARRIE has dropped, teasing the curse of being a teenager with special powers while living with a crazed parent and being forbid to go to Prom. Ah, kids.

New TV spot for Carrie remake with ChloŽ Grace Moretz touts an R-rating

The remake/reimagining of Stephen King 's best-seller CARRIE is just a month away and the latest TV spot for the film adds a little more incentive to go check it out as the familiar R-rating logo pops up just at the end. Now, does that mean CARRIE will earn that R? Hard to say at this point, but with director Kimberly Peirce at the helm and stars Chloë Grace Moretz,,...

Get more Carrie with Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore in the latest featurette for the film

One could say, "Well, we've seen the first CARRIE so we already know what to expect." I think that's true in a sense, but from what I'm hearing about Kimberly Peirce 's take on the classic horror flick it's a terrific new take on the material. Peirce is probably the perfect person you didn't know what perfect for this job. At least not the one we thought about at first. Those...
