After making a huge appearance at the New York Comic-Con this past weekend with a panel, new poster and first teaser trailer, Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie remake is now sharing all the good stuff with the rest of us!
The blood-soaked new poster went on-line immediately after it appeared at the NYCC, but the trailer didn’t and we all thought we might end up waiting a long time to actually see any real footage. Fear not, the teaser trailer has now arrived, and as usual, we are very happy to share it right here with you. While no one really needs to know the story, we are all interested in Peirce’s take on the film, and the footage gives us our first glimpse. Big and epic and theatrical is the words which spring to mind, and plenty of fire! There is fire everywhere as we are clearly seeing the aftermath of one of Carrie’s ‘moments’, and come the end of the trailer we get a good look at Chloe Moretz quite possibly the biggest role of her career so far. She certainly looks the part, and has a very unsettling look about her, and I believe she will do just fine in this film. The haunting voice-overs and creepy singing really add a pretty chilling atmosphere.
Director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry; Stop-Loss) re-imagines Stephen King’s best-selling novel for MGM and Screen Gems’ take on the enduring genre classic. Starring Chloë Grace Moretz (Hugo), four time Oscar-nominee Julianne Moore (Crazy, Stupid, Love; The Kids are Alright) and Judy Greer (The Descendants), CARRIE tells the supernatural tale of a telekinetic teenage girl tormented by her peers.
CARRIE is slated for 23rd April 2013 theatrical release.
A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.
