Directed by Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry), the horror film tells the story of Carrie White, who’s bullied at school and controlled by her overly religious mother (Julianne Moore, (6 Souls). When she’s pushed too far at her senior prom, Carrie unleashes her telekinetic power on her small town.
Despite critical darling Moretz’s starring role, the 2013 Carrie didn’t wow critcs, earning a 49% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes, compared to a 92% for the original 1976 film that stared Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie. Big audiences didn’t show up for the new version at the theaters, grossing Carrie $35 million.
Rated R, Carrie also stars Gabriella Wilde (The Three »
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is poised to enter the top 10 biggest sellers of 2013, with The Hobbit: The Desolation posing its greatest end-of-year threat
• More on the UK box office
• Hunger Games: Catching Fire – review
Following its sensational debut the previous weekend, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had no problem hanging on to the top spot, with a gross (£5.53m) more than triple its nearest rival, Gravity, with £1.74m. The drop for Catching Fire – down 46% – will be considered respectable, given the huge anticipation for the film, which saw fans rush to see it on opening weekend. The original Hunger Games fell only 33% in its second frame, but declining revenue curves for sequels are invariably steeper. Last November, the final Twilight dropped 66% in its second session.

This is one of the rare times when a piece of news strikes me as simultaneously outstanding and horrifying, like a barber shop pole of emotion just winding around my body. CBS Films has signed up for an adaptation of the classic book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark from Alvin Schwartz, whose reworking of folklore was masterful, and Stephen Gammell, whose illustrations begat individual infinite corridors of synapse-crushing fear and dread within many a child.s brains. It.s the scariest thing a kid could have read before moving onto Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft, and the guys who gave us last year.s The Collection, Saw 3D: The Final Chapter and Piranha 3Dd. And now a different form of dread begins settling in. Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who first rose to fame with 2005.s Project Greenlight-funded horror Feast, pitched the idea and CBS Films »
Fear her power! Unleash the telekinetic horror when Carrie debuts on Digital HD January 3 and on Blu-ray and DVD January 14 from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. An exhilarating reimagining of Stephen King's iconic best-seller from director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry, Stop Loss), this tale of small town terror stars Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass 2, Dark Shadows) and Julianne Moore (Don Jon, Game Change).

In December of 1988, Richard Chizmar decided to publish a horror magazine called Cemetery Dance. A few months later, he did. In October of 2013, Chizmar decided to publish an anthology called Turn Down the Lights celebrating the 25th anniversary of the magazine. A couple of months later, he has. Chizmar, clearly, is not the kind of guy to back away from a challenge. It’s that kind of attitude that’s enabled him to build a veritable empire on the foundation of that first issue of Cemetery Dance, and to turn that unlikely name into a recognizable, trustworthy brand. That first issue of Cemetery Dance featured a lot of names new to the horror genre, some of whom would go on to carve out big careers, some of whom would fade into obscurity. There are no obscure names in Turn Down the Lights – this is the cream of the horror crop, »

In early 2012, I saw the trailer for a campy movie called You Can’t Kill Stephen King about a group of young people vacationing near the author’s summer home who get killed off one at a time. The trailer promises a horror movie that breaks all the rules…by not breaking any. The project is described in tongue-in-cheek fashion: six stereotypical characters with weak story arcs, a town full of overacting antagonists, low-budget gratuitous violence and cheesy King references.
The nucleus of the story was written several years ago by Monroe Mann—an alumnus of the Fryeburg Academy in western Maine, whose staff was also involved in the production—and stand-up comedian Ronnie Khalil while they were vacationing in the lake house ultimately used in the film. Co-writer Bob Madia helped complete the script—he contributed much of the King lore and references. Mann and Khalil co-produced and team-directed with cinematographer Jorge Valdés-Iga, »

While television's original programming may arguably the best it's ever been, the small screen is rapidly attracting re-imaginings of some big screen properties. Production has already started on Robert Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn series, which is only the tip of the iceberg for Movie-to-tv adaptations. Plans are in the works to bring such properties as Sin City, Stephen King's The Mist, and a series based on the 2010 film The Wolfman to the small screen. As money gets tighter, budgets get smaller and in-home viewing becomes the preferred manner of entertainment consumption, television is poised to welcome its big screen brethren with open arms. Hit the jump for more. The latest news from the arm of the entertainment world concerned with movie properties making the jump to television comes courtesy of Deadline, who reports that The Wolfman series is in the works for NBC.

Frank Darabont's The Mist, his big-screen version of Stephen King's novella, is under development as a 10-part TV series, according to The New York Times (via The Playlist). Darabont is involved with the show's development. No other details have been announced yet. King's novella, first published in 1980, detailed the events in a small town in Maine after it is enveloped by a strange mist, from which horrifying, bloodthirsty creatures emerge. Some of the town's citizens are trapped in a supermarket, where they are eventually pitted against one another, divided by their own prejudices and religious beliefs. Thomas Jane starred in the 2007 film version, which built a credibly high level of tension and maintained fidelity to its source material, although Darabont chose...

Female villains in the movies can usually be placed into two categories; the mentally deranged psychopath and the provocative seductress. This isn’t always the case of course, but it’s a fairly accurate basis to draw on. In honour of the nasty and glamorous sorceress Mizuki in 47 Ronin – the samurai epic out this December starring Keanu Reeves – we’ve reminisced on our favourite on-screen feminine scoundrels in cinema history. Mizuki has a tendency to turn into a dragon and go on rants about corpses and rivers of blood. In this list she joins the conniving, the insane, the alluring and the devilishly sexy. They’re all here, and we just love to hate them.

Morally dubious on the largest possible scale, this shape-shifting witch in upcoming action-fantasy epic 47 Ronin has the ability to »
We know that Robert Rodriguez is bringing one of his previous films to the small screen, with a TV adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn currently filming, and now it's being reported by The New York Times (via ComicBookMovie) that The Weinstein Company is looking to branch out into the TV business and could be planning a Sin City series to follow the theatrical release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For next year.
Apparently, Sin City is one of several movies that Bob Weinstein is looking to adapt for TV, with Rodriguez is said to be involved alongside with comic book creator and co-director Frank Miller. Meanwhile, in addition to the previously announced Scream pilot for MTV, Weinstein is also said to be working with director Frank Darabont on a 10-part series based upon Darabont's 2007 feature adaptation of the Stephen King tale The Mist.

While we don’t always report on pilots because they’re so ethereal, and we hate to get all excited about a show that may or may not even make it past that initial first effort and never on to our screens, when a name like The Weinstein Company (Lee Daniels’ The Butler, The King’s Speech) is involved, we take notice.
And while Harvey Weinstein is the name and face that most of us recognize, promoting his latest movies on the morning shows, it’s his brother Bob’s Dimension Films (the Scary Movie and Scream movie franchises), a subsidiary of The Weinstein Company, who’s making our news today.
According to The New York Times, in conjunction with The Weinstein Company‘s announcement of a major move into television, Bob Weinstein has stated his plans to develop TV series based on the Sin City comic books and Stephen King‘s The Mist. »

The Weinstein Company is looking to get into the TV business, and they are in the process of developing several TV series, including adaptations of Frank Miller's Sin City and Stephen King's The Mist. Both of these are properties that have potential to be great series.
While talking to the New York Times, Harvey Weinstein talked about their TV division, saying, “The way to add stability to the company is to be in the television business,” he then went on to say that his goal was to have a television operation “as powerful as the theatrical division.”
They currently have more than a half a dozen series in development, those series include:
A 10-part series with Frank Darabont, based on Dimension’s film version of Stephen King’s The Mist.Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez would develop a Sin City TV series.A 10-episode detective drama set in ancient Egypt called Book of the Dead. »

The Weinstein Company along with filmmaker Frank Darabont are reportedly developing a new 10 part TV show based on Darabont's 2007 creature feature adaptation 'The Mist'. Darabont, who previously helped bring AMC's 'The Walking Dead' to the small screen, will be developing the movie which was based on the original story by horror author Stephen King. No actual details about the plot have yet been revealed but most of the events that revolved around the group of survivors holding up in a local supermarket were thorougly covered in the movie so should we expect to follow survivors elsewhere? Most likely yes. The movie starred Thomas Jane ('The Punisher') and Laurie Holden ('Silent Hill'). »
Last week in an interview with the New York Times, Bob and Harvey Weinstein talked about their company's future plans for television, and revealed that two series based on Sin City and The Mist are in development. He is preparing a pilot based on the “Scream” films for MTV, for instance, and developing a proposed 10-part series with Frank Darabont, based on Dimension’s film version of Stephen King’s “The Mist.” Mr. »
