Funny or Die spoofs 'Divergent' with Michelle Obama, Chloe Grace Moretz


Let’s face it: Divergent is a fictional story. But if an apocalypse doesn’t seem realistic, what about a snackpocalypse? Sadly, a snackpocalypse is much more realistic.

And that’s the basis of a new Funny or Die video that features Chloe Grace Moretz, Tyler Posey, and, just because it can, Michelle Obama. In Snackpocalypse, Moretz plays the heroine destined to stand out amongst the factions of Pizza Pals, Pop Rockers, Hufflepuffs, and more when her peers abandon healthy food for junk food. And because every reluctant heroine needs a push, Posey (and his alleged back tattoos) shows up to encourage Moretz on her journey to stop everyone from eating all the junk food and, you know, try an apple every now and again.

As for the First Lady? Well, she’d just rather watch Frozen again.


Chloe Grace Moretz to star in Steven Soderbergh-directed play about gun violence

Movie starlet Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-AssHugo) is set to make her New York theater acting debut in a new drama directed by Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh.

The Library, which will premiere this spring at Off Broadway’s Public Theater, is a world premiere drama from frequent Soderbergh collaborator Scott Z. Burns, who penned Side Effects, ContagionThe Bourne Ultimatum and the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

The play explores the effects of gun violence on high school student Caitlin (Moretz). After she survives a deadly shooting at her school, Caitlin struggles to relay the story to her parents and the police, even as conflicting stories about the event make their way into the media.

“I wanted to write a play about the stories we tell each other in the face of calamity — the pretty lies and the brutal truths,” Burns said in a release. “This is something Steven and I have discussed over the last decade while making movies. What is the value of the truth? What is the cost of a lie? How does a story drift as it moves through time?”

Soderbergh and Burns will both make their New York theatrical debuts with the piece, which runs from March 25 through April 27 at the Public (official opening night is April 15).

'Kick-Ass 2': The female superhero arc we need stuck in the sequel we don't want

While watching Kick Ass 2, what captivated me most was Hit-Girl’s arc. No longer a precocious kid sidekick to Nicolas Cage’s ex-cop vigilante Big Daddy, Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) also known as Mindy Macready is now a teenager training and fighting crime while avoiding the fearsome torture that is high school.

Her storyline solidifies her as a progressive, well-rounded character — a female superhero who isn’t overtly sexualized but is in control of her own journey to adulthood. It’s a shame that there aren’t more characters in superhero movies like her — or even more characters like her in the otherwise not ass-kickingly awesome Kick-Ass sequel. READ FULL STORY
