During last nights premiere episode of Fox's "Sleepy Hollow" Sony released the first TV spot for Kimberly Peirce's take on CARRIE, which will be hitting theaters in a little over a month, landing on October 18. While this new spot doesn't feature any new footage, it still does a solid job of effectively selling viewers on what to expect from the new take on the classic Stephen King tale. This TV spot follows yesterdays new featurette that revealed a little bit of new footage along with some insight from Peirce and her cast, including Chloe Moretz, Julianne Moore and Judy Greer. You can check that out HERE.
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 Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer and Portia Doubleday. The film will terrorize theaters on October 18th.
