Carrie Teaser Trailer Arrives
'She wasn't some monster...'

16 October 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Sony Pictures

With the new version of Carrie White – played by Chloe Moretz – having something of a launch party at the New York Comic-Con this weekend, the publicity machine has kicked up a gear. We got the poster yesterday and now comes the teaser trailer courtesy of Yahoo, which you can see above.

It’s very much a tease, gliding through the small town so we can see the devastation that has been wrought by one fateful prom night prank.

Voice-overs talk about what led to it – a conspiracy, perhaps, or something supernatual? – and then there’s mention of a certain young lady. “She’s not a monster. She’s just a… girl.” Cue a quick zoom into Moretz as the blood-covered Carrie standing among the rubble of her telekinetic handy work.

So even though we don’t get much of a sense of the rest of the movie – Julianne Moore’s Margaret will have to make do with just a picture for now – this is clearly meant as a statement of intent from director Kimberly Peirce.

We’ll keep an eye on this one, as the main trailer will be key. Carrie arrives in cinemas on April 5 next year.

L: OPEN YOUR EYES If this is funnier than the Original then they're onto a winner. Impossible! Every time I dust off the old copy of Carrie I forget how genuinely funny it is. Travolta arguing with his Mrs always has me in stitches. More

Bore off!
There is no way this will be as good as the original! Not really sure what to make of Moretz. She was good in Kick-Ass but let me in was crap compared to the original and this looks to be going the same way. I'll wait and see what Empire and you lot have got to say before I make a decision on whether Im gonna see it or not. More

she REALLY wasnt wasnt some monster
you have to remember that Carrie is in fact just a bullied kid, not a monster, a serial killer etc. which seems to be how she is percieved these days. if they stick with the tortured soul who finally has enough and not try to make her into micheal myers it should be a good remake. More

Quite a promising teaser. More

Boring
Chloe Moretz cannot act, she has the emotional range of a cucumber and the subtlety of an elephant. I have never seen her "not" overact, and each time her performances are cringe inducing to watch. The original Carrie was not very good and the book is also not very good, so all in all it is safe to assume this is going to be terrible. More

RE: All in the eyes
L: The Bantam Menace Moretz is a great bit of casting but she hasn't got Spacek's eyes, her face still freaks me out when I watch the original......as do the eyes on that Jesus statue!!!h shows how bad the original was. Carrie isn't supposed to have terrifying eyes. She supposed to have sad, lost, & confused eyes. Ugh I hate the original. More
