If you were a fan of the first two Kick-Ass films, you were probably disappointed to learn that there won’t be a third one. There probably would have been, but you bastards torrented it instead of going to see it in theatres/buying the actual DVD, so there’s no budget and no point and it’s all your fault. At least that’s what Chloe Moretz says.
From Digital Spy:
“Sadly, I think I’m done with the character,” Moretz said. “Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don’t think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre.
“Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn’t help us because we need box office figures. We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie – but because it didn’t do so well, we can’t make another one.
“If you want more than one movie, everyone has to go and see movies at the cinema. It’s all about the numbers in the theatre.”
It’s true that the experience of going to the movies has really sorta gone out the window in the age of the internet. I still like going to the movies – I just went to see Lucy last weekend and really loved it – but it would help if the tickets weren’t fucking $15. No wonder people are getting the movie at home – it’s too damn expensive to go! Sorry, boo – take a cheaper payday and then movie ticket prices can come down and more people would go. She probably wouldn’t want to do that, though.

It feels bizarre talking about children dating each other, but here we are. Chloe Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham (yes, the son of Victoria and David Beckham) are apparently doing just that, and they are super into each other because they had a crush on each other for a long time.
From US Weekly:
Moretz, 17, and the aspiring model, 15, were introduced a couple of months ago through a mutual friend at SoulCycle in Santa Monica, Calif., where Brooklyn often works out with his famous father.
They’ve “gone on a couple dates and are seeing where it goes,” the insider tells Us. “They were each others’ crush.” A second source notes that the couple have since returned to SoulCycle to take classes together.
The pair have tried to take advantage of Brooklyn’s time in L.A. since exchanging information—he’s currently back in London finishing school. Some of their other activities have included spending time at the beach, skateboarding, and catching a movie at the Third Street Promenade downtown.
“They don’t drive, so they had to be chaperoned around,” according to the first source. “It was very cute.” Up next, Moretz is planning to take Beckham to her If I Stay film premiere.
Ha, that is cute. I’m a but surprised that Chloe doesn’t drive, though – can’t you drive at 17 in most states? Let’s hope this one stays cute and innocent, though – they’re just kids and certainly don’t need to be rushing into anything serious. Also, this is yet another example of couples who love working out together. WHAT IS THIS TREND?

I know we’ve got some Chloe Moretz stans lurking around here, so I’m sure you’ll be glad to see her pop up on EB… and to learn that I’m not going to slate her for being too big for her britches (because I was probably being a bit cranky that day). I’m just here to talk about the Carrie remake, which actually looks pretty good (and will be, guaranteed, since Julianne Moore is in it). You see, Chloe feels like it’s one of the most important roles in her career – not just because it’s a lead role in a major blockbuster, but because she got to be more vulnerable than ever before with this one and put her own spin on the character.
From Flicks and Bits:
“The role of Carrie is an incredibly emotional role. It’s probably the most vulnerable I’ve ever been as an actor, so in some ways it’s kind of terrifying for people to see it, but at the same time it’s very exciting and kind of an awakening for me because it’s something I’ve never done before.”
“We were able to put our own spin on [the character], just because we wanted it to be original. And I didn’t want to watch the movie or anything. So what we really did was, we had the book there on set every day, and we compared a page in the script to a page in the book and really, that was our big thing.”
“Hopefully people will really like this Carrie and they’ll really be interested in her look. It’s so different than the first one, I think. I think that she is such a different style of Carrie. I think also… that we have the modern facilities to be able to… keep the same consistent blood throughout the entire movie until she washes it off.
“Keep the exact same blood spatters and just kind of keep it so linear. Unlike with the first movie, they didn’t have the ability. You see the blood drop and then cut. It’s like a different splatter and everything. But, you know, it’s that time period. In this time period, you sort of have people looking for, ‘Oh, the blood went from her left cheek to her right cheek. Oh my God’. So we had to make it so strategic that I hope people really like that.”
Cool, sounds good. I’m glad they went in a different direction and weren’t trying to do a carbon copy remake of the original, because then I think it would’ve tanked. However, this could potentially be pretty awesome.
Will you see the new Carrie or have you already?

I know I’ve given Chloe Moretz a hard time before for saying stupid shit, but sometimes I have to remember that teenagers say stupid shit all the time and it doesn’t mean they’re terrible people. In fact, the Carrie actress seems to have her head screwed on pretty straight and in a new interview for her Seventeen cover story, she dropped some serious truth bombs about the importance of family:
“I have two gay brothers and two straight brothers, and my gay brothers were treated horrifically until they grew up and understood how to deal with it,” she explained.
“I will delete you and I will block you, and you will not be a part of my life if you ever say anything bad about my brothers.”
“Never choose your friends over your family or a boyfriend or girlfriend over the family. My mom has always taught us that blood is thicker than water.
“No-one will ever understand the dynamic of your family. Ever. We are the closest family ever and we are the most insane family ever. It may look weird to others, but to us, it’s life.”
That’s great that she loves her family so much, and it’s a good rule to live by… if you have a good family and not a shit one. Sometimes your friends become your family because the one you were born with isn’t much of a family at all. It’s all relative, but I get what she’s going for here.
Also, world, stop treating gay kids like shit. Stop treating black kids like shit, stop treating fat kids like shit, stop treating anyone who’s “different” like shit. Seriously.

In news that will surprise exactly zero people, the gravity of Justin Bieber‘s idiotic and self-centered comments in the Anne Frank House guestbook were sort of lost on his fans, who didn’t see what the big deal with and in fact don’t even know who Anne Frank is. Uh… WHAT?
The tots gathered at their playhouse (Twitter) and did themselves, Justin and the world at large proud by getting a very important topic trending: “Who Is Anne Frank”. I wish there were words in any language to describe my thoughts on the matter. For now, the following will have to suffice: ljasdklfjasjlaklsdf;asjfalkdf;k!!!!
Let’s see some of what his educated, culturally sensitive and all-around fantastic human followers had to say on the issue, shall we?
who is anne frank and why is she bullying justin bieber?

This is our future, guys. It’s fucking bleak. And in related news, Carrie star and too big for her britches teen Chloe Moretz has also come to Justin’s rescue, telling ET that people need to chill out, because he didn’t mean any harm and Anne Frank MAY HAVE BEEN A BELIEBER, you know! Oooookay.
“I very much respect Anne Frank and what she went through. [It] is a very serious situation and you know to make a joke of it sometimes is kind of inappropriate,” she explained.
“But at the same time you can kind of think of the angle, well you know, ‘You’ve got to bring light into those dark situations’.”
Moretz added: “I don’t know, a lot of people are Beliebers… maybe she would have been a Belieber.”
Nope. Sorry, just no.

I’ve never hard a lady boner for the original Carrie like so many horror fans seem to, but the remake due out later this year starring Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore actually looks alright. I wouldn’t go see it, but I’d at least torrent a decent cam version or something, and that’s high praise in my world.
Julianne Moore is a totally underrated actress and manages to tap into that peculiar creepiness of Carrie’s mother really well. Chloe Moretz is alright, as well, but when Julianne Moore is in something, you can pretty much guarantee she’s going to steal the show even if she’s not the lead.
Carrie is due out on October 18. What do you think – will you see it, or is this another unnecessary and totally shitty remake?
