Chloe Moretz is a tricky actress whose talents are often misread or misused (see: Carrie), but when she’s utilized well, she really shines (see: Clouds of Sils Maria, Laggies). The young actress has yet to star in a legitimate comedy, though she did show off some solid comedic chops on 30 Rock. That’s about to change, as Moretz is in talks to join Neighbors 2, marking her first part in a real comedy film.

The first U.S. trailer for Dark Places has finally arrived, featuring Charlize Theron in the latest film adaptation of one of best-selling author Gillian Flynn’s novels. Flynn also wrote the novel (and subsequent screenplay) for last year’s Gone Girl, though it doesn’t seem like Dark Places is going to be as big of a hit — the film is currently available on DirecTV almost two months ahead of its theatrical release.

Denzel Washington returns to action in '‘The Equalizer' trailer, though he's a little slower than he used to be. Instead of taking out a room full of criminals in sixteen seconds it takes him nearly twenty. Maybe it's time to retire.

After months of teaser images, Sony has finally released the first official trailer for 'The Equalizer,' starring Denzel Washington as a brooding protagonist who's gonna kick some down and dirty mafia ass and save a wayward young girl. So basically, yes, it's definitely a Denzel Washington movie.

With the 'Equalizer' trailer dropping soon, we'll finally get to see Denzel Washington in action as a retired government official turned vigilante -- not to mention Chloe Moretz as a prostitute (though in her case, we don't mean that kind of action). But before then, new photos from the film, based on the classic '80s TV series of the same name, give us a peek at what's in store.

'Laggies' Review

No matter how much we’d like them to be, characters in films don’t always have to be likable. They don’t always have to make good decisions or smart choices. They don’t have to necessarily behave in an entirely believable or relatable manner. They don’t even have to change, no matter what traditional storytelling tells us. But if they are unlikable and unbelievable and stupid and stuck, even the best-intentioned films will fail. And without even good intentions? They’ll simply insult.

'Carrie' Review

For a gal named Carrie White, she's sure got a lot of red on her.
Watching Kimberly Peirce's 'Carrie' is an odd experience. If you've seen Brian De Palma's version from 1976, this new version is - and there's really no point in denying this - like watching a cover band. There's a tweaked scene here and there (including a new, creepy-as-heck opening) plus the addition of cell phones and references to 'Dancing With The Stars.' This remake, more than most, really feels like hitting the same marks. It may be a peculiarity specific to 'Carrie,' because, let's face it, not a whole heck of a lot happens in this story. Considering most moviegoers' familiarity, there's plenty of room to stew and think, "Why is this considered such a classic?"

Reel Women: Sorry Hit-Girl, 'Kick-Ass 2' is Misogynist Garbage

The first 'Kick-Ass' film was praised for its depiction of miniature crime-fighter Hit-Girl (Chloe Moretz), whose origin story satirized traditional comic book origin stories: her father (Nicolas Cage) is a delusional vigilante and has stolen her childhood, training her to be a tiny killing machine. Audiences relished in the gleeful, hyperactive sequences in which the foul-mouthed Hit-Girl completely wiped out rooms full of weapon-toting adult men, and for good reason.
Unfortunately, Hit-Girl has lost her magic appeal in 'Kick-Ass 2,' but the even bigger disappointment is the film's horrible issues with gender.
