New Carrie Motion Poster
Keep calm and Carrie on

26 May 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: MGM

Leaving aside the more-than-overused meme of Keep Calm And Carry On, this new motion poster for horror remake Carrie boasts a decent twist on the studios’ current favourite marketing idea (well, aside from Vine). 

Actually, this poster shares a close resemblance to Vine’s blip-vids: a collection of short chunks from the trailer footage (you can watch once of the trailers at the foot of the page), showing leading lady Chloe Grace Moretz’ particularly bad night at the prom.

Carrie, of course, focuses on Moretz as Carrie White, a lonely high schooler who really just wants to fit in. But she’s bullied by the popular clique, jeered by others and, to make matters worse, also has to deal with her obsessive, fundamentalist Christian mother (Julianne Moore).

Oh, and there’s there small matter of the burgeoning telekinetic powers she's developing. When the big prank at the prom finally makes her crack, bad things happen…

This new take on Stephen King’s story has Kimberly Pierce directing and Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Gabriella Wilde and Alex Russell among the cast. It’ll scream on to our screens on November 29.

Carrie - pretty?
NeoBrowser, thats a bit harsh to say Sissy Spacek was ugly as hell, isn't it?? She was ok. The book's character is described as: "a very peculiar girl who came from a very peculiar family...She was a plain-looking country girl, but she'd changed the black skirt and white blouse – which was all anybody had ever seen her in – for a bright-colored checkered blouse with puffed sleeves and a skirt that was fashionable at the time. And everybody made worse fun of her because nobod More

RE: Lol no Carries was not pretty in the book
Carrie WAS pretty in the book, and she was CERTAINLY not fat! No one noticed because she was always dressed frumpy and conservative. But there is a whole bit about how beautiful she was when she went to Prom. Just because Sissy Spacek was ugly as hell doesn't mean every Carrie afterwords has to be! More

Lol no Carries was not pretty in the book
No, Carrie was ugly and fat in the book. The whole point is that she's an uncool, bullied kid with no social skills. I kinda like the look of this movie, but yeah she definitely seems too pretty and cool to be Carrie. More
