Evil teenagers, bible thumping moms, the prom of a lifetime, and oh yeah, wicked psychic powers. What could possibly go wrong? Check out the first full trailer for Kimberly Peirce’s “Carrie”, a remake of the ’70s Brian DePalma movie starring Hit-Girl herself, Chloe Moretz as the psychic teen with the major mommy issues and popularity hang-ups. Yes, no more teaser for the teaser trailer.
The most amazing part about this remake of “Carrie” is that the star can not only past for a teenager, but she actually is a teenager. How’s that for a novel idea, kids?
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.
“Carrie” also stars Julianne Moore as psycho mom, along with Judy Greer, Gabriella Wilde, Alex Russell, Max Topplin, Portia Doubleday, Cynthia Preston, and Connor Price.
Carrie gets all carried away this October 18, 2013.
