I'm coming around to the Kimberly Peirce-directed remake of CARRIE, thanks in no small part to some of the cool trailers, images and featurettes that we've seen lately. And although most of us may think we already know what to expect from CARRIE, we can always hold on to the hope that this new take offers up a few original twists and turns of its own to deliver something new to the fans of the original film and author Stephen King's source material.
Today we have a new featurette for the film which features interviews with stars Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, as well as some insight from director Peirce. There's also a good deal of new footage so you can get a better look into what the film will offer. Check it out below.
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. 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 (Judy Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.
CARRIE unleashes her fury in theaters on October 18.
