CARRIE (R): Chloe Grace Moretz takes over for Sissy Spacek as the bullied teen with telekinetic powers in this "reimagining" of the Stephen King novel. Director Kimberly Pierce ("Boys Don't Cry") reportedly consulted with Brian De Palma, who made the 1976 original, before shooting began. Julianne Moore co-stars as Carrie's fanatically religious mother, who turned out to have a point when she warned her daughter "They're all gonna laugh at you!"

THE FIFTH ESTATE (R): Bill Condon ("Kinsey," "Showgirls") directs this drama about the price WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his partner Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Bruhl) paid after they starting posting classified documents online.

ESCAPE PLAN (R): Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger co-star for the first time (no, "The Expendables" movies don't count) as convicts who attempt a daring prison break. Directed by Mikael Hafstrom ("1408," "Evil").
