{SHARE THIS} The Telekinetic Coffee Shop Surprise!

Telekinetic Coffee Shop Inspired by Carrie

This made us laugh . . .HARD.

Although nothing about telekinetic attacks is funny in any sense (someone could get hurt), we couldn’t help but laugh at the pure horror these pranksters conjured to spook the living daylights out of innocent coffee-goers in honor of the upcoming redesign of the Stephen King classic “Carrie“, starring Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore (out October 18).

It’s also rather apropos to be writing this post inside a coffee shop. Too bad it’s not turning out anywhere near as exciting as this.

Why do people stand there? I’d be out of there in a flash the second a man is being dragged up a wall. That’s the sign things are getting real messy. I guess also be careful who you spill your coffee on . . .

We also hope this inspires many more innovative and interactive movie promotions in the near {Future}!

{STYLE WISE} CARRIE (1976) VS. CARRIE (2013)

 Graduations have commenced, the lockers are empty, and uniforms have been put on the top shelf, but this doesn’t stop us from being pumped for this year’s style conscious remake of “Carrie” starring stylish ingenue Chloe Grace Moretz, and mystic maven Julianne Moore, as Carrie’s fanatical mother. 

“These Are Godless Times, Mrs. Snell”

-Margaret White, “Carrie” by Stephen King.

The film is set to release in October, but until now we can just quench on the latest trailer, and take a look back at what made “Carrie” great so many years back (almost 30!).

Surely no one can outdo Sissy Spacek’s alien beauty and frail feminine qualities, but undeniably Ms. Grace Moretz will bring a freshness to the part that she’s consistently showcased in her last several films. This is her big BIG break. Much as it was Spacek’s those many years ago. . .

{ “CARRIE” (1976) VS. “CARRIE” (2013) }

High school seems like a world away now, but we can’t help but feel a certain sense of nostalgia for those long lost days roaming the hallways, hanging out in the labyrinths of the school auditorium, or ditching gym. “Carrie” does right to set its horrors amongst the most sacred rite of teenage life, {Prom Night}.

I remember my own, decked out in vintage duds; a little gang of mischief-makers danced the night away in the cavern of some out-of-the-way banquet hall in middle-of-nowhere southern Ontario. Waiting for the bus at midnight across from an empty field was but one of the many highlights that mark {Prom Night} as truly a night to remember. Not unlike the kids in “Carrie” . . .

And no better way to get yourself prepped for the film directed by Kimberly Peirce, whose 1999 film “Boys Don’t Cry” had Hilary Swank walking away with an Academy Award for Best Actress (as well as a Best Supporting Actress nod to fashion darling, Chloe Sevigny).

Sounds like a sure-bet to me!

Don’t get this secret diva mad, because once you do,

there’s no holding back those flood gates.

Stunning “CARRIE” Trailer Finally Uncovered! Plus I Dare You To Call Carrie White . . .

Finally! The moment we have all been waiting for is here! After months have simply have to watch the excruciating teaser showing Carrie’s entire town burning to the ground showing a blood-drenched Chloe Moretz out of control pissed at being bully bait at her prom, we finally have a legit, sold, 100% certified trailer for the film that also stars Julianne Moore as Mrs. White – Carrie’s maniacal, fanatic, evangelical mother driven to hysterics by her daughter’s blossoming psychic powers. . .

It’s a relief to know that this film is going extra lengths to really respect both the 1976 original, starring Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie as the terrifying mother-daughter duo), but also the novel that started it all, and kick-started Stephen King’s career as the world’s most popular author. And this version seems to be the perfect synthesis between the past, present, and eventually future of “Carrie”.

The film is excitedly updated to today, taking a contemporary spin on the story, allowing the creative team to touch on very real topics of cyber bullying and harassment in teen culture today. It’s no surprise really, considering the film is helmed by world-class director Kimberly Pierce who previously led Hilary Swank and Chloe Sevigny to Oscar nominations (and Hilary the win) for the 1999 classic, “Boys Don’t Cry”.

When “Carrie” was released in 1976, it sealed the deal for Sissy Spacek, and there’s no questioning the fact that Chloe Moretz has now sealed the deal on her fate, as well. The film has been pushed back to a later release date of October 18, from its original March release date (damn it!), which could be a good sign that this film is in contention for some big award coverage, and at least a smash hit for Halloween – probably both, though. After all, Julianne Moore is one of those actresses that should have already won an Academy Award in her life – so it’s only a matter of time, and “Carrie” could be it.

Same goes for Chloe Grace Moretz, who might be young, but considering Jennifer Lawrence’s recent win at the Academy Awards for Best Actress at the age of 22 – the chances don’t seem that unlikely for a star as consistent and talented as the young Chloe Grace . At the very least, a nomination will most likely be awarded.

But until that fateful day, the film’s marketing team seems to have set up plenty of goodies to get your “Carrie” fix until that bright, shiny day. You can check out the film’s Official Site here for downloads and other stuff, and be sure to visit YOU WILL KNOW HER NAME , the film’s uber imaginative Tumblr site that harks back to the film’s epistolary novel roots.

And if that’s not enough for you, you can literally call Carrie!

That’s right. You can call Carrie White at her home, The White Residence at: 207-404-2604.  Sounds freaky, but it’s true! You can call at receive any one of three recorded messages. Try it out if you don’t believe us, or listen below . . .

Between this film, “Stoker, and “The Great Gatsby” coming out this May – 2013 is already adding up to a really exciting year for film, and films that are infusing the past with all the excitement and innovation of today!

Hope you’re excited! Don’t piss off Carrie!

Until next time,

{STYLE WISE} – E.O.F. Prom Night with “Carrie” (1976)

“Baby, You’re a Firework…

Come on Show Em’ What You’re Worth…”

With the end of the school year comes a warm welcome to summer, and for many, a sad farewell to the “best years of your life”. Graduations have commenced, the lockers are empty, and uniforms have been put on the top shelf.

High school seems like a world away now, but we can’t help but feel a certain sense of nostalgia for those long lost days roaming the hallways, hanging out in the labyrinths of the school auditorium, or ditching gym.

There are a lot of things we remember, but perhaps one of our fondest memories looking back would have to be the sacred rite of {Prom Night}.

Decked out in vintage duds, a little gang of mischief-makers danced the night away in the cavern of some out-of-the-way banquet hall in middle-of-nowhere southern Ontario. Waiting for the bus at midnight across from an empty field was but one of the many highlights that mark {Prom Night} as truly a night to remember.

So while you reminisce on your own {Prom Night} memories, we decided to take a visit to one of our all-time favorite movie classics – Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaptation of Stephen King’s novel “Carrie“.

The film stars Sissy Spacek as Carrie White, a mousy girl who is unable to find her stride in the social on-goings of high school, and her mother Margaret White, famously captured by Piper Laurie, whose fanatical Christian ways bring more horror and terror than any boogie monster.

They’re All Gonna Laugh at You! They’re All Gonna Laugh at You!”

This isn’t your typical revenge of the nerds, as Carrie quickly begins to harness a secret power growing inside of her- a power her teasing peers would be wiser not to play with. Don’t get this secret diva mad, because once you do, there’s no holding back those flood gates.

“These Are Godless Times, Mrs. Snell”

-Margaret White.

The film also features William Katt, Amy Irving, John Travolta, and Nancy Allen as the teenagers on the other end of the popularity scale.

Perhaps you’ve already seen it, so you’d have to agree this is one fine piece of movie-making as only Brian De Palma could conjure. With a fantastic score by Pino Donaggio, and remarkable visuals, this a film that truly encapsulates the dreamy/nightmarish mood, as well as the period- which is fearlessly Seventies! Despite that, the film is absolutely timeless, and a wonderful source of inspiration.

Thus, we have devised this very special {PHOTOBLAST} to celebrate the film, as well as to celebrate {PROM NIGHT}, because no matter how bad you think yours was – it could never trump Carrie’s!!!

Perhaps you’ve heard, but “Carrie” is actually in line for a remake starring the incomparable Chloe Grace Moretz (“Hugo”, “Dark Shadows“, “Let Me In”, “Kick-Ass”) as the tormented teen, and rumors of Julianne Moore to take the helms as the uber-evangelical Momzilla, Mrs. White ! ! !

The film is being directed by Kimberly Peirce, whose 1999 film “Boys Don’t Cry” had Hilary Swank walking away with an Academy Award for Best Actress (as well as a Best Supporting Actress nod to fashion darling, Chloe Sevigny). Sounds like a sure-bet to me! Will they keep the 1970s setting, or go for a total update of the Stephen King classic? I guess we will just have to wait and see….

In the meantime, if you have any amazing, funny, bizarre, or strange happenings go-on on your {PROM NIGHT} we would love to hear them!! Please let us know in the comments section below!

Hope you enjoy the pics. Just let your mind roam free!

UPDATE!!! CHECK OUT THE BRAND NEW TRAILER THAT HAS FINALLY RELEASED!

Sincerely,

{theEye}
