Hey, Kids, it’s Pop Culture Roundup 35, like 35 mm. Kevin Durant.

Just in time for the Halloween season, here’s the teaser (at header), like it or not, for the remake of the classic Stephen King (1976) adaptation, Carrie. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore as mother and daughter. A re-imagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom. Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, Carrie is directed by Kimberly Peirce with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa


A new tv spot and featurette for Cloud AtlasCloud Atlas explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future.

MPC’s breakdown shows how we created the alien planet LV-223, space environments, the human crew and alien space-crafts, an explosive crash scene sequence, plus bringing to life the alien ‘Hammerpede’.


Looper clip-o-matic trailer

This is a strange curiosity I thought might be interesting – just after I finished the script for Looper but before we began preproduction I asked Joe to record some voice-over, and with help from my friend Ronen Verbit constructed this “fake trailer” using clips from other movies. This is a fairly common thing to do when you’re trying to get a movie off the ground, but it was the first time I tried it. It was meant to show more some of the film’s tone, and to show how the odd concept could be presented in a clear and compelling way in the marketing. Zach Johnson did the sketches. Note that we hadn’t begun the casting process yet, and the clips were chosen just based on their visuals and not by who is in them.


Vulture recently created The 25 Most Devoted Fan Bases list and collaborated with designer Matt Stevens to create a series of badges to correspond with each. Users can download these individual badges and declare their devotion across various social media platforms or on their mobile device. These graphics are great but, unfortunately, the dumbasses at Vulture were remiss and forgot to include the religiously faithful demographic of The Wire and Breaking Bad fanatics. Real Housewives and Tyler Perry? C’mon. Fuck off, Vulture. via


Well, was this as good for you as it was good for me? Sweet. See you next week…
