Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde beat out a slew of competitors to land the lead roles in Shana Feste’s remake of 1980s romantic drama “Endless Love,” so we’ll have to see if their on-screen love really does conquer all. A new trailer has been released for the Valentine’s Day 2014 release, which sees Wilde’s nose-in-a-book good girl falling for bad boy Pettyfer, much to the chagrin of her father.

Gabriella Wilde and Alex Pettyfer get too close too fast (for her dad’s taste, anyway) in the first trailer for the remake of 1980s teen romantic drama “Endless Love.” She’s a good girl who’s spent her life with her nose buried in a book, he’s a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, but it’s pretty much love at first sight for our young lovers. Pretty soon he’s texting her romantic, not creepy at all messages like “What are you doing every day for the rest of yourRead More
A bit of Carrie’s strict home life is teased in the first clip released from Kimberly Pierce’s remake of Stephen King’s classic horror novel “Carrie,” with Chloe Moretz in the role of the telekinetic misfit and Julianne Moore as her, um, eccentric mother. As if being sent into a closet to pray as punishment for some minor infraction isn’t bad enough, the state of Moore’s arms indicate there is something else very wrong with Carrie’s mother. It’s no wonder then that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree andRead More

Dayo Okeniyi, who played Thresh in “The Hunger Games”, continues to be one of the most prolific and fast-rising young actors to break out of the 2012 blockbuster. THR reports today he has landed a major role in Universal’s remake of 1980s romantic thriller “Endless Love” starring Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde.

Chloe Moretz looks the perfect blend of vulnerable and menacing in the full length trailer for Kimberly Pierce’s new adaptation of Stephen King’s horror classic “Carrie.” The new trailer takes us basically chronologically through Carrie’s journey from outcast laughingstock (the film is clearly set in present day, with the notorious bloody shower scene getting the very modern twist of being captured on someone’s cell phone camera) to deadly villain prompted by a prom night prank gone horribly, horribly wrong. Julianne Moore also looks appropriately creepy as Carrie’s zealously religious mother,Read More
Filmmakers have been searching for a pair of young actors to headline a remake of 1980s romantic thriller “Endless Love” and have finally found them in Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde, according to Variety.
