I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

THIS WEEKEND'S BOX-OFFICE: 10/18/2013


Today will see the release of Carrie, though this is a remake I look forward to seeing it, who is with me?

Carrie


PROS:


- The original film is regarded as something of a horror classic, bringing built-in appeal to this remake.
- Star Chloe Grace Moretz is a budding star thanks to the Kick-Ass franchise and Hugo, among other recent films, in which she turned heads. Julianne Moore adds some veteran star power.
- Flixster and Facebook activity have been very encouraging leading up to release.
- The horror genre is hot right now, and recent remakes have been able to do well.
- As the lone horror offering during Halloween season this year, genre fans should turn out.

CONS:


- Twitter activity has been sluggish this week.
- Moretz isn't yet a proven draw outside of the film community and genre fans.
- The success of Gravity and Captain Phillips could limit the potential adult audience that is most familiar with the Carrie name.

  1. Gosh I hope this movie doesn't let me down. I appreciate how they want to re-vamp the Carrie story, but some classics just shouldn't be touched. Or maybe I'm just biased b/c I've never been able to sit through an entire movie with Chloe in it. -_-
