This first official look at the remake of Carrie is bloody good
CARRIE is coming, and true to our hope she's as bloody as can be.
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly we now have our first clear and concrete look at Chloë Grace Moretz in the title role and Julianne Moore as her mother, with smaller sidebar pictures that help to compare the two to the original portrayals of Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie. Both are rather iconic images to take on with a first showing, but there's something to be said for getting them out of the way right at the start.
Directed by Kimberly Peirce (BOYS DON'T CRY, STOP-LOSS) from a script by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa ("Glee," "Big Love"), CARRIE hits your local cinema March 15th, 2013. I know it says "13th" in the article, but the 13th is also a Wednesday. Which is a shame, because Friday the 13th would be a great day for a movie like CARRIE to release.
Plot recap: The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White and her daughter Carrie. Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson, but only Chris' best friend, Sue Snell, regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross, to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.
|Extra Tidbit:||Moretz has had this to say of her take on the character: "Carrie's completely different from me. It's an out-of-body thing: I'm becoming a totally different person for it. We're really looking into Carrie's mind this time. It's going to be more psychological: more Black Swan."|
