Screen Gems has debuted these three new images from ‘Carrie.’ A re-imagining of Stephen King’s best-selling novel, ‘Carrie’ tells the story of a shy high school student (Chloë Grace Moretz) who is raised by a nightmarish religious fanatic mother (Julianne Moore), and comes to grip with devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying. The likes of Judy Greer, Alex Russell, Megan Hilty, Gabriella Wilde, Ansel Elgort, Portia Doubleday and Ivan Hoey Jr co-star alongside Moretz and Moore. The Kimberly Peirce-directed (Boys Don’t Cry, Stop-Loss) film is set for a October 18th release. The official synopsis for ‘Carrie’ is as follows. Source: Kinopoisk via The Playlist.
The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc. Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of CARRIE earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.
Michael Bay’s ‘Pain & Gain’ is based on the unbelievable true story of three personal trainers in 1990s Miami who, in pursuit of the American Dream, get caught up in a criminal enterprise that goes horribly wrong. Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg) is a regular bodybuilder who works at the Sun Gym along with his friend Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie). Sick of living the poor life, Lugo concocts a plan to kidnap Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub), a regular at the gym and a rich, spoiled businessman, and extort money from him by means of torture. With the help of recently released criminal Paul Doyle (Dwayne Johnson), the “Sun Gym Gang” successfully gets Kershaw to sign over all his finances. But when Kershaw survives an attempted murder by the gang, he hires private investigator Ed Du Bois (Ed Harris) to catch the criminals after the Miami Police Department fails to do so. The likes of Rebel Wilson, Yolanthe Cabau, Tony Plana, Keili Lefkovitz, Rob Corddry, Ken Jeong and Bar Paly also star in the action-comedy-crime film. ‘Pain & Gain’ lands in cinemas on April 26th in the US and May 3rd in the UK.
What was your initial reaction to the script for ‘Pain & Gain’?
Mark Wahlberg: The first time I read the ‘Pain & Gain’ script I was in New York making another movie. Michael Bay and I have the same agent, and normally I don’t like reading other scripts while I’m making a movie because I’m so focused on what I’m doing. But my agent told me that Michael would be in town for a short period and he asked if I was willing to take a quick look at the script, and I did. I fell in love with the script and I was kind of well connected in the bodybuilding world in LA, in the early 90s, so I was very familiar with that world and those guys.
