Julianne Moore
Well, here's reminder in case you forgot about this one — it's been a few years. Way back in 2010, Ellen Page signed up to star in the feature film adaptation of the Oscar winning documentary short "Freeheld," with Peter Sollett ("Raising Victor Vargas," "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist") coming on to direct in 2012. And then nothing was heard of the project again, but today two big names are kicking it back to life.

We've covered Liam Neeson's upcoming “Non-Stop” before here as “Taken on a Plane,” because really, how else do you describe it? Bryan Mills is practically a goddamn anagram of Bill Marks, Neeson's character name in this one, and it's directed by Jaume Collet-Sera, who made what film historians now refer to as the first “Taken” retread, “Unknown,” back in 2011. Anyway, if you urgently desire to hear Neeson's half-Irish half-whisper meting out more threats, you'll be able to February 28th.

Carrie, Chloe Moretz
Kimberly Peirce’s much-hyped “Carrie,” which we first got a fairly pleasurable preview of during last year’s New York Comic Con, finally opened this weekend in a prime pre-Halloween slot usually reserved for the yearly “Paranormal Activity” iteration and… nobody showed up. The movie, starring Chloe Grace Moretz in the title role, failed to connect with audiences, who rejected it in favor of yet another go around in Alfonso Cuaron’s IMAX 3D version of Space Mountain, and critics (like our own) were mostly unkind. But why this new “Carrie”—which, like the 1976 Brian De Palma original and the 2002 TV movie, is based on Stephen King’s first novel—defaulted so spectacularly is still worth investigating. We decided to look at the five most criminally awful aspects of this remake in an attempt to decode who killed “Carrie.”

Carrie, Chloe Moretz
It's easy to see why director Kimberly Peirce ("Boys Don't Cry") was intrigued by the prospect tackling Stephen King's "Carrie." The material takes two key rites of passage for young women -- their first period, and their high school prom -- and blends it with oppressive religious fundamentalism and the supernatural, into one unforgettable tale, with rich subtext and themes to play with. But in terms of a remake, the question has always been whether or not anyone could top or put their own mark on "Carrie" after Brian De Palma did it with such style and panache. And to Peirce's credit, she did have an approach that was unique, at least theoretically.

Is Liam Neeson even trying anymore? His movie scripts these days seem to be Mad Libs: One man must face [insert adversary] using his special set of skills or else [insert threat]. From vague ethic groups in "Taken" to wolves in "The Grey" to something we can't remember in "Unknown," Neeson has been punching and kicking his way into a steady string of mediocre, box office hits. That's right America, "Non-Stop" is your fault.

There are mothers and daughters, and then there is Carrie and Margaret White. With a heady mix of fundamentalist fueled love, the aches of being an outsider in high school and living with telekinetic powers that underscore that freak status, it's almost all a young teen can take and we'll see in "Carrie" that this emotional perfect storm can eventually erupt in devastating ways.

Don Jon
Jon Martello is the quintessential modern-day lothario. He and his friends objectify women, rate them on a scale of one to ten and cruise clubs for chicks that they can bed and discard. Jon, in particular, is exceptionally good at wooing the ladies with his muscles, slick-backed hair and cocky charms. His life, as he tells us in voiceover, is all about his friends, the gym, his ride (a Camaro muscle car), his family, church (no, really), girls and pornography. Lots and lots of pornography. Jon is an inveterate and compulsive porn addict, so much so that it prevents him from having a substantial relationship with any female. Jon Martello, in case you missed it, is a total guido from New Jersey, complete with "Jersey Shore "accent.
