Exclusive New Carrie Poster Arrives
There will be blood...

Carrie is coming - and here's our exclusive international poster to prove it.

Director Kimberley Peirce (Boys Don't Cry) says she has, reasonably enough, gone back to the original Stephen King novel for inspiration. But the story has also been modernised. "You have to do that", she elaborates, "in order to bring any great piece of work written in one era [in this case the 1970s] into the next". Moretz meanwhile, has been comparing the film's tone to Black Swan.

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) 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.

Peirce 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.

Carrie comes to cinemas November 29.

Pointless?
Having watched the trailer recently, this remake just looks utterly pointless and it's such a shame because it's got some really decent talent attached to it. Apart from a few updated moments, it also looked almost shot for shot similar to Psycho? I'll be watching it because I like King/Pierce/Chloe but I really hope we've not got another Carrie 2: The Rage on our hands! More

This is one remake that i actually think would work if done right and I am very much looking forward to it. Although I love the original it is some what dated and a fresh take on it would be a great welcome! I just hope its gonna be good. More
