Creepy new poster for the Carrie remake, featuring Julianne Moore and updated release date

Jan. 14, 2013by:

UPDATE: Word from the Twittersphere is that this may be a fake. Out of all the movies that people could run fake posters for, why CARRIE?  Weird.  Anyway, there it is.

The recent news of the CARRIE remake being shifted from it's spring release date to October was a big change, but a positive one in most fans' eyes.  Given that the EVIL DEAD remake was vying for your attention just a few weeks away from that time slot, producers looked to open the Chloe Moretz-starring CARRIE to a more horror-worthy month, making it a solid entry for the Halloween crowd.  The Kimberly Peirce-directed remake of the Brian DePalma film, adapted from the novel by Steven King (phew!) now has a little more time to market and build some hype. 

Case in point, this new poster, featuring Julianne Moore as Carrie's mother, looking as scary and freaky as can be.  Moore brings considerable clout to the role and I think it's cool that she's taking on a role outside her usual high-profile awards fare to do something, well, fun.

Get the visine:

This is, of course, similar to the initial poster, which featured Moretz.  I wouldn't be surprised if we see a few more character-themed posters like this roll down the pipe before the film's release.  Now, get us a new trailer!

CARRIE is set to unleash hell on October 18, 2013.

I appreciate the question asked in the Extra Tidbit. In so far as, these movies might suck, but you are at least acknowledging that remakes as a whole don't have to. Remakes/reboots can be good or bad, doesn't mean we should rule them out completely.
The blind hate gets annoying where there are a lot of good and fun remakes out there getting lumped into the same category as the bad ones.

Regarding Carrie and Evil Dead. I never liked the original Carrie that much (despite being a huge horror fan), so any fresh life into that story would do it well for me. And the Evil Dead remake just looks awesome. So I can't wait for Evil Dead and am optimistic about Carrie.

I agree with you. Some remakes are good and some are bad but either way the instant complaining gets annoying. I hate it when people say "raped my childhood." How does a remake hurt your DVD collection? The films and shows you grew up with are still there on your shelf untouched and untainted for you to watch whenever you like or show your kids. No one is coming to confiscate and burn them. If the movie does well then future generations will be rekindled in the culture but if it does poorly

If the movie does well then future generations will be rekindled in the culture but if it does poorly then there won't be a sequel which should make the complainers happy since they didn't want a remake in the first place. At least give it a chance before passing instant judgement and while we are at it we should apply that principle to daily life as well.

Remakes and reboots are always going to run the risk of being overshadowed by their predecessors, regardless of whether or not some genuinely good remakes are made or not. Unless they are like "Man on Fire," a movie that was not particularly well-remembered before Tony Scott (who had wanted to direct the original) decided to remake his in Mexico City. That film is still better regarded than the Scott Glenn original. The difference now is that when I was a kid they had all these technological

That film is still better regarded than the Scott Glenn original. The difference now is that when I was a kid they had all these technological advances that could make the movie "better. " Now, while technology is still advancing, the end result visually isn't that different, just, in this case, more vividly guesome (cutting your tongue in half might not have been a serious, realistic feature in the '80s).

RE: Extra Tidbit question

I think it depends on the original movie. If Hollywood remakes what is generally considered to be a classic, then the new version will not be well received (even if it rakes in a boatload of cash in its opening weekend). The original will always be viewed as the ideal version by nostalgic audiences. ("Remember how awesome the original Clash of the Titans was?")

However, if they remake a forgettable movie, and they do a good job, then that has the potential to become the new classic. For

However, if they remake a forgettable movie, and they do a good job, then that has the potential to become the new classic. For example: Down and Out in Beverly Hills, The Maltese Falcon, No Way Out, The Fly, Heat, Ransom, Scarface, and The Ten Commandments are all remakes. So the lesson here is don't remake the good movies. Remake the bad ones.

I like the legit Carrie poster. The God one I can see being fake. It seems like a bad marketing strategy to mention God in such a context on a movie poster where everyone can see it. You know that's asking for a ton of complaints. I am actually looking forward to this remake. While a lot of people may complain, there was a lot that they didn't do with the original that they can now do. This can be a harsher film that sticks more to the novel than the original. I am looking forward to seeing

I am looking forward to seeing what they do with the source material, especially the latter part of the book when all the massive amounts of destruction happen. That and we have a female directing, which should lend better to the young, teenage, female perspective of the story.

Good or bad

Remakes/reboots are useless to me. The world laughs at American movies anymore because nothing is original and it's all stolen ideas. Heck, even Shameless on Showtime, as great as it is, is just a remake from the British show of the same name. And this Carrie remake is just plain boring looking. Hollywood tries SO DAMN HARD to be melancholic and morbid that it just comes of cheesy. Heck, even France has turned in to a great movie making machine. Am I on my high horse? You bet I am. I am

I am sick of Hollywood and embarrassed for them at the same time. Call me a snob, I don't care, but that's how I feel. I won't be paying to see this.

I don't think the whole world laughs at American movies, a lot of American movies, even ones that aren't very good do extremely well overseas.
