New "Carrie" Teaser/Trailer! 
Okay, I don't normally condone remakes, but this one seems interesting. First of all, it's from Kimberly Peirce, the director who made Hilary Swank a first-time Oscar winner in 1999's "Boys Don't Cry." Second, I adore the main cast -- Chloe Grace Moretz as Carrie (Sissy Spacek memorably played this role in the original) and Julianne Moore as her crazy and ultra-religious mom, Margaret White (played by Piper Laurie in 1976). This one, of course, is a re-imagining of the Stephen King creation.

We may not be able to forget the Brian De Palma 1976 original, but I'll give this new "Carrie" a chance when it opens on March 15, 2013.

Take a look at the new teaser trailer:

Robert Pattinson to "Hold On To Me!" 

I wish, HA! But the "Twilight" star, winding down from all the vampire hoopla, has signed on to star with Carey Mulligan in "Hold On to Me" according to Deadline. The film will be directed by James Marsh, the Oscar-winning guy who gave us the excellent documentaries, "Man on Wire" and "Project Nim."

"Hold On to Me" is a true-life tale about a woman and her boyfriend who kidnap and ransom the town's richest man. But, things go awry. Things always go awry in this type of films right? But Pattinson is not going to play the boyfriend, he will star as Jimmy, the woman's love. And he's not involved in the crime. The script is written by Brad Ingelsby.

Post-"Twilight," Pattinson is involved in many projects including "The Rover" where he will star opposite Guy Pearce; Pattinson is also starring in "Mission Blacklist" about the hunt for Saddam Hussein.

As long as he's not putting on fangs, I'm perfectly happy with his choices.

Paramount to Distribute Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" 

Paramount has landed the deal to distribute domestically the upcoming "The Wolf of Wall Street" according to Deadline. The film, currently shooting in New York, is directed by Martin Scorsese and stars his leading man du jour, Leonardo DiCaprio. Paramount is releasing this Oscar-contender in the fourth quarter of next year for Academy Awards consideration.

Besides DiCaprio, the cast also includes Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Rob Reiner, Kyle Chandler, Margot Robbie and Jon Bernthal ("The Walking Dead"). The script is written by Terry Winter ("Boardwalk Empire").

This better be a better movie than the last Paramount-Scorsese-DiCaprio project, "Shutter Island."

"Sinister" Director to Tackle Stephen King's "The Breathing Method" 

I quite enjoyed "Sinister" and I'm a big Stephen King fan so I welcome this news with excitement! Scott Derrickson, the guy who gave us "Sinister," is going to direct an adaptation of "The Breathing Method," Stephen King's novella from the "Different Seasons" collection. The story is quite macabre -- take a look below from an entry about "The Breathing Method" at Wikipedia:

David, the narrator of the frame tale, is a middle-aged Manhattan lawyer. At the invitation of a senior partner, he joins a strange men's club where the members, in addition to reading, chatting and playing pool and chess, like to tell stories, some of which range into the bizarre and macabre. The club and its butler are also featured in King's short story "The Man Who Would Not Shake Hands".

One Thursday before Christmas, the elderly physician Dr. Emlyn McCarron tells a story about an episode that took place early in his long and varied career: that of a patient who was determined to give birth to her illegitimate child, no matter what, despite financial problems and social disapproval. McCarron comes to admire her bravery and humor, and the implication is that he has even fallen a bit in love with her.

The patient masters Dr. McCarron's novel (for the 1930s) breathing method intended to help her through childbirth. However, when she goes into labor and is on the way to the hospital on an icy winter night, her taxi crashes and she is decapitated. McCarron arrives at the crash site and realizes that the patient is somehow still alive. Her lungs in her headless body are still pumping air, as her head, some feet away, is working to sustain the breathing method so that the baby can be born. McCarron manages to deliver the infant alive and well.

On a sweet but haunting end note, the patient whispers "Thank you" -- her decapitated head mouthing the words, which are distortedly heard from the throat jutting from her headless body. McCarron is able to tell her that her baby is a boy and to see that she has registered this before she dies. McCarron and his office nurse pay for the woman's burial, for she has no one else.

The child is adopted, but despite the confidential nature of adoption records, McCarron is able to keep track of him over the years. When the man is "not yet 45", and an accomplished college professor, McCarron arranges to meet him socially. "He had his mother's determination, gentlemen," he tells the club members, "and his mother's hazel eyes."
