Carrie lives on

Stephen King is one of our most well known, and not at least productive, authors who've given us many literary classics through the years, many of which have been transferred into films (The Shining, Misery, The Green Mile – the list goes on and on). In 1974, King released his debut novel Carrie, which two years later was made into a feature length film by director Brian De Palma. In this story, we follow the bullied young girl Carrie White, who is suppressed both by her classmates and her fanatic religious mother. But when she discovers her secret powers and that she can move things with her mind – nothing will no longer stand in her way (no pun intended).

Both the book and the film were a huge success, and now Carrie has been moved into the new millennium. This week marks the release of the new adaptation of King's novel – this time with Kick-Ass star Chloë Grace Moretz in the title role. Directed by the critically acclaimed Boy's Don't Cry-director Kimberly Pierce, this new version of Carrie manages to be truthful to King's story as well as updating her to today's climate.

So prepare yourself for a blood soaked night at the prom with the new Carrie, and check out the original version in case you've missed it. And if you get hungry for more Stephen King-based films, we've collected a few of them here.

Apocalyptic ending of Edgar Wright's Cornetto trilogy

Today marks the premiere of The World's End – the latest film from the British director Edgar Wright and the final film in his loosely connected trilogy, which have been named The Cornetto Trilogy by fans. This because of the recurrent reference of the classic ice cream in his three films Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and now The World's End.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost plays yet again the lead characters in this film, where a group of childhood friends reunite for a classic pub crawl in their home town. But as the night goes on they find out that something's not right in the idyllic town, something that might even be having something to do with the end of the world.

Wright mixes his energetic style with his terrific sense of humor as the group (including actors Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Martin Freeman) closes in on this apocalyptic adventure and bombastic finish of their trilogy. Don't miss!

Veronica Mars is back! Seven years after the popular TV-show ended the young private detective has taken the step to the big screen. In Veronica Mars: The Movie, Veronica has put her investigating days behind her and is about to become a lawyer. But when she receives a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan regarding a murder case she returns to her hometown and to a life she thought she had left behind.

This new film version of Veronica's life is partially financed by the show's fans. With the help of the fund-raising platform Kickstarter the show's creator Rob Thomas and actress Kristen Bell started a fundraiser to get the production of the movie started. And with the big and devoted group of fans that the Mars followers make, the estimated goal was far beyond reached.

So now the fans has finally gotten their film! The movie premiers today in theaters in USA, but you can already now watch the film comfortably at home through its exclusive VOD premiere here at Headweb. So sit yourself down, open a bag of marshmallows and enjoy the comeback of Veronica Mars!
