Mario’s Weekend Movie Roundup [VIDEO]
This weekend at theaters promises to be very interesting with the remake of the 70s horror classic “Carrie.” I was in high school during the time the original was in theaters and still remember Sissy Spacek who played Carrie covered in red paint in the prom scene. The new “Carrie” gets a more modern upgrade with actress Chloë Grace Moretz playing the iconic role. If you’re an action buff, Arnold and Stallone are going to be punching and shooting their way out of an inescapable prison in “Escape Plan.” And last but not least a political thriller story based-on-true-events “The Fifth Estate.”
This updated version of the 1977 classic introduces us to the shy, troubled high schooler Carrie White, whose religious-fanatic mother and bullying classmates lead her to develop some strange supernatural powers … which she then uses on her enemies.
