Empire has debuted this new international poster for the upcoming take on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, ‘Carrie.’ The film 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 in the US and a November 29th bow in the UK. The official synopsis for ‘Carrie’ is as follows.
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.

‘Iron Man 3′ pits the brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, ‘Iron Man 3′ returns Robert Downey Jr as the iconic Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes, Paul Bettany as JARVIS, and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan. The likes of Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale, Guy Pearce, Wang Xuequi and William Sadler join the Marvel universe in this third Iron Man movie as The Mandarin, Maya Hansen, Eric Savin, Aldrich Killian, Dr. Wu and Sal Kennedy, respectively. ‘Iron Man 3,’ the latest installment of the ‘Iron Man’ film franchise that has grossed more than $1.2 billion at the global box office, will be released in the UK on April 25th and in North America on May 3rd. Look out for a more in-depth interview with Gwyneth Paltrow shortly. Lots more interviews to come!
Can you tell us a little about where we find Pepper Potts in ‘Iron Man 3′? Also, there’s still a lot of banter between Pepper and Tony, even though it’s slightly different now that they’re in a relationship …
Gwyneth Paltrow: Yeah. When we find Pepper in ‘Iron Man 3,’ she and Tony Stark are very much in a relationship. They’re living together, she’s moved into his house in Malibu, and she’s still running Stark Industries – so their lives are very intertwined. And there’s a lot of comfort between them now, so it’s not the kind of tentative relationship they had in the first one (laughs). It’s very comfortable. I think you get the sense that they know each other very well and they’re in a serious relationship. It’s very nice to have the relationship evolve over the course of a few movies, and especially now. I mean, Robert and I have always had a really great working relationship and we’re very happy working together, and it’s nice to phase it into something else. There’s still all the banter, but it’s less tenuous – they’re really doing something together.

Out and about on the promotional campaign for ‘The Iceman,’ Michael Shannon talked to E! briefly about starring opposite Henry Cavill in the much anticipated Superman movie, ‘Man of Steel.’ Shannon, who plays the villainous General Zod in the film, said of Cavill’s incarnation of Superman, “He’s perfect, he’s flawless. He’s everything you could possibly want. I saw the movie the other day for the first time, and I just love the original as much as anybody but I can’t think of another actor in the business today that could come close to what he did. He was just sensational.”
Michael Shannon also promised some epic fight scenes between him and Henry Cavill in ‘Man of Steel.’ ”Yes, of course,” he said. “If we didn’t have any interaction at all, it would probably be kind of bizarre.” Cavill, who bulked up for the part, didn’t unleash any actual injuries on Shannon during filming though. “No injuries physically, no,” he jokingly added. “Some mental injuries I’m still trying to get over, but that’s no secret to anybody.”
