Creeping its way into the cinema on the most horrifying of months comes the story of a tortured teenager. But, this is no mawkish teen romance. This soul will ultimately wreak vengeance on her tormentors in the remake of “Carrie.”
After being pushed back to October, some of the marketing for this film has come to the forefront as depicted in the new poster below.
With the rash spread of remakes that have been populating Hollywood lately, there is anticipation as well as anxiety on this particular film. Remade films such as “Total Recall” and “Fright Night” have been received lukewarmly by critics and fans.
It does seem to be in capable hands with Kimberly Peirce whose best known work is 1999’s “Boys Don’t Cry.” The leads will also be played by Chloe Morentz and Julianne Moore. This new film looks like it will be closer in quality to the original as opposed to its ill-conceived sequel.
The poster below features Julianne Moore as Carrie’s religious fanatic mother, Margaret White. Superimposed on her is the ironic caption hinting at the films cataclysmic event. This is a complement to Carrie’s own picture featuring the words: “You will know her name.”
“Carrie” will be released October of this year.
