Carrie

"Entertainment Weekly" has posted two bloody photos from Kimberly Peirce's "Carrie." The film is inspired by Brian De Palma's 1976 movie, and is more faithful to the chilling Stephen King novel. Chloë Grace Moretz plays bullied high school student Carrie, who uses her telekinetic powers to retaliate against her nasty classmates. Julianne Moore is her mother, Margaret White — a religious woman whose sense of humanity and affection for her daughter turns vicious and violent. Moretz spoke to the magazine about the famous scene at the prom where a bucket of pig's blood is dumped on her head. "We only have, like, four chances to get it right, because that stuff stains your hair." Carrie unleashes mayhem in theaters on March 15.

With the awards-season momentum of "Eastern Promises" continuing to grow as it debuts on DVD, we caught up with the iconic auteur to get his thoughts on neck-slicing, the perceived stages of his back catalog, and whether he and James Woods predicted the Internet way back in 1983.

MTV: David, some people are calling "Promises" an unofficial sequel to "A History of Violence." Was that your intention? Read More...
