We're under 2 weeks away from finally getting to head to the big dance with Kimberly Peirce's CARRIE and on tap for ya today we have a new clip featuring stars Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore. If you've read the Stephen King novel from which the film is based or if you've caught Brian De Palma's 1976 classic version of the tale, then you'll be very familiar with the setup for the clip below. It's interesting to see how Peirce is handling this material and everything we've seen as of late is giving me hope that this could potentially be a pretty damn good remake/reimagining. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this one.
CARRIE tells the supernatural tale of a telekinetic teenage girl tormented by her peers. The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine, is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter, Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.
Directed by Kimberly Peirce, CARRIE stars Chloe Moretz, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Gabriella Wilde, Alex Russell and Ansel Elgort. Look for it in theaters on October 18th.
