The Red Band trailer for Kick Ass 2 has hit the blogosphere, and it's pretty blue thanks to the new villain's handle that Christopher Mintz-Plasse adopts for this sequel. Red Mist is now The Mother Fucker, with a glam-rock costume that, weirdly, calls to mind Kiss and Liza Minnelli.
Triple-named threats Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass) and Chloe Grace Moretz (Hit-Girl) are back and all grown up, and, this time around, they're joined on the superhero side by Jim Carrey's lantern-jawed Colonel Stars and Stripes. and his ball-busting guard dog. Ouch. Check out MTV's exclusive clip below and the hot poster for the film.

It's time to ruin prom for a whole new generation of teenagers! EW.com has posted an exclusive photo of a blood-soaked Chloe Moretz from Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce's remake of Carrie.
Moretz gave me a serious case of deja vu when I saw the photo of her as the title character of Stephen King's classic 1974 horror novel about an alienated teen with telekinetic powers and a seriously wacko mother. Sissy Spacek, who played the original Carrie White was fantastic in the role, but she was also in her mid 20s at the time. At 15, Moretz seems more age-appropriate to play the role of a high schooler. Julianne Moore plays Carrie's mom in a role that Piper Laurie played in the original film..
EW reports that Moore intends for her portrayal to retain some humanity. "This woman has clearly had a psychotic break, perhaps several,” Moore tells the publication. “But what’s sad about it for me is that she’s clearly sick and here’s this poor child in the thrall of this person who is seriously ill." more »

Child actors all grown up, Oscar-winning directors popping their collars, stars going silly for the camera -- anything goes when you stick actors and filmmakers in the studio for some good, old-fashioned family-style portraits. See who came to town for the 2011 Toronto Film Festival and gave good face for the camera, uberdramatic, super goofy, and otherwise, in Movieline's TIFF 2011 Photo Booth.
Where have America's sweethearts gone? Seventeen-year-old Dakota Fanning is charging hard towards adulthood, with Abigail Breslin (15), Chloe Moretz (14), and sister Elle (13) hot on her heels.

There's a little something wrong with the casting breakdown for Lionsgate's upcoming adaptation of Suzanne Collins' YA smash The Hunger Games. Or rather, a few little somethings: in a widely circulated casting call for the central part of Katniss, the fiercely independent young heroine of the dystopian survival trilogy, filmmakers are seeking girls who are Caucasian and look "underfed but strong." Is this fantasy franchise off to the wrong start?
As the YA-addicted world awaits the conclusion of The Twilight Saga, internet storms are a-brewin' over the next teen franchise with Twilight-level potential: Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy.
