Full Carrie Trailer Is Here
Pray for forgiveness...

05 April 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Yahoo

Cast your mind back to last October, when the teaser trailer for the new version of Carrie brought us mostly voice-over and just a quick glimpse of the tragic, vengeful titular high-school girl (played, in this instance, by Chloe Moretz). This time around, we get a proper introduction to the world that director Kimberly Peirce has built around her, so go and have a look.  

 

This new take on the character keeps the basic story drawn from Stephen King’s novel intact. Carrie White is an outcast at school – looked down upon by the cliquey popular girls and just wishing she could fit in.

Her mother Margaret (Julianne Moore, finally seen in full religious fervour) is no help – she’s a fundamentalist who thinks pretty much everything her daughter wants out of life leads straight to eternal damnation. And she’s not above locking her in a cupboard. But Carrie has powers. Psychokinetic powers. When the endless teasing from classmates and the savage tough love from her mother becomes too great... things start to happen. Bad things. Very bad things.

Pierce and co have a lot to live up to in the shadow of Brian De Palma’s iconic original, but the footage on display here is certainly enough to instil some measure of confidence.

We’ll have to wait until November 29 to see Carrie in cinemas. For more, take a look at the entry on the film in our massive 2013 preview.

RE: No No No No...No!
Thanks for putting the whole film in the trailer, no need to see it now. More

RE: No No No No...No!
L: NeoBrowser L: pythonlove All I can see is another crap CGI remake of a horror classic with better effects and not a fraction of the emotional power. And Chloe is too young. ything wrong is right there. Nothing is "classic" about the godawful original Carrie film. And it was mostly godawful BECAUSE it was horror, when its supposed to be thriller. This one looks like its got spectacularly more emotional power in it than that old crap-fest ever could dream of. My only issue More

RE: Shelve it!
L: dannyfletch This looks like a pointless, over CGI'd remake. Brian DePalma's classic 70's shocker still holds up to this day and Sissy Spacek gave an excellent performance as Carrie and suited the part down to a T! Chloe Moretz does not convince at all judging from the trailer, she doesn't even look the part. Also Julianne Moore isn't a patch on Piper Laurie as the twisted mother. The Evil Dead might be an effective remake but this looks like a pile of turd that needs to be shelved! st s More

RE: Full Carrie Trailer Is Here
Gotta say, the one scene that will make or break the film for me is when Carrie shows the good girl (forget her name) how everything happened through her eyes. That was the most emotional part of the book for me. Looks like the slow-mo destruction will be epic though, just as I wanted it. More

RE: Well, now we've seen the movie
L: Gumba23 Let me start by saying that I think this looks amazing. I loved the novel and from what I've seen in this trailer it seems to stick to the source. "from what I've seen" being a lot. I think this could have done with a shorter trailer, it seems like every major plot point is in this, up to the final carnage. I know the novel, so I can't be spoiled, but it should have kept back a few things... ed! I hope it will salvage the excellent story from that horrible 70s version. Its time More

This is looking pretty good. Like Evil Dead, a (hopefully) worthy remake, but the trailer shows pretty much everything. More

Looks Good
This actually looks really good. All the right atmosphere and tension intact, with the effects to turn it into a real spectacle. Looking forward to it. More

I like the look of this. The casting is solid and all they have to do is follow the basic beats of the original story and they can't go wrong. More
