New Movies: ‘Carrie,’ ‘Escape Plan,’ ‘The Fifth Estate’
This weekend we get a remake of a ’70s horror classic, Arnold and Stallone finally punching and shooting things together onscreen (’80s action-movie fans, rejoice!) and a based-on-true-events political thriller about that creepy-looking Wikileaks guy.
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.
