First Look: Chloe Moretz Drenched in Blood for Remake of 'Carrie'

August 23, 2012

There was plenty of blood on the hands of young Chloe Moretz when she took down organized crime in Kick-Ass (with her return in the sequel coming in 2013, maybe with people like Jim Carrey and Donald Faison), but in the new adaptation of Stephen King's story Carrie, her character doesn't exactly volunteer to get bloody. The first official photos from the set of the horror remake have arrived and they go for the gold by revealing the aftermath of the iconic scene when young Carrie has her beautiful prom dress doused with blood. There's also a photo showing an unstable looking Julianne Moore as Carrie's mother. Look!

Here are the first official photos from Kimberly Peirce's new take on Carrie from EW:

Kimberly Peirce (of Boys Don't Cry) directs this new adaptation of Stephen King's novel Carrie, with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (a writer and producer from "Glee" and "Big Love"). Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass, Let Me In, Hugo) stars in the film about a sheltered high school girl who unleashes her newly developed telekinetic powers after she is pushed too far by her peers and her unstable mother (Julianne Moore). The film also stars Judy Greer and Portia Doubleday. ScreenGems finished shooting Carrie earlier this year, and are planning to release the new version in theaters starting on March 15th, 2013 next year.

    Thats the kind of image you shouldn't put in the header so people that don't want to be spoiled don't see it when scrolling down the homepage
    • How can you be spoiled by this? It's one of the most iconic moments in the original film and it doesn't really give anything away. That's why it's being released as one of the first official stills from the film.

        I had a feeling someone would say that, but I just don't want to see any of the movie's climax. Who knows how different of similar it will be? Its like if they remade Alien (wouldn't ever happen), I know what the Alien looks like, but I don't want to see the creature plastered over everything before the movie comes out. Takes the suspense out of it
        • moutchy
          Why do you think an Alien remake would never happen? They are remaking every single movie ever made these days!
          • Scopedog
            It won't happen. And even if it did....well, do what I would do--don't see it! (I'll save your mental health, right?)
        • LosZombies
          As if you DIDNT know she would get drenched in blood?...
        • cracky
          I agree. It's an iconic scene. As if they need to remind us "yes, don't worry, it's still gonna be in this remake" or as if they didn't have anything else to show as a teaser. Where's their sense of confidence and mystism?
    • DoomCanoe
      showing a horror icon drenched in blood doesn't really give anything away... not to mention everything Ethan said. This picture is great because it shows that fans of the story and original film are getting a remake that looks the way they want it to look. And if you happened to never see Carrie all it tells you is that at some point she is covered in blood.
    • CharlesChaplinFan2
      I agree. Its not that you didn't know that she'd get covered in blood, but you want to see it in the movie first (or at least in a badass teaser poster). I remember I was watching a making of special for Peter Jackson's King King and was kinda pissed when they showed a clip of Kong initial appearance when he take Naomi Watts' character. That was a moment that needed to be seen during the movie, not a few weeks before, separate from everything else, just like Carrie covered in blood. Doesn't matter if its official or not, the studio shouldn't put it out. Looking forward to this film though

    So, it's a comedy then...? Looks as horrible as I thought it would.
  • LosZombies
    Carrie's mom looks psycho as shit 😀 Cant wait for this!
    • grimjob
      Zombies, don't get your hopes up man. An unnecessary remake that probably won't bring anything to the table. Good casting, but this just shouldn't happen. imo
      • LosZombies
        Youre right, I need to restrain myself. Its a piece of crap but its SO SHINY! >.<"
        • grimjob
          Well, blood does make a damn good looking dress.
      • Ravek021
        Have you seen Let Me In?
        • grimjob
          I did, kind of by accident. My roommates at the time had just started it when my girl and I came home, and it peaked my interest. It was pretty good actually. Moretz is a damn good actor. I had intended to see Let the Right One In first, and still have yet to see it.
  • Ashley Sargiotto
    CGM is going to be amazing in this!
  • Chris
    Holy cow, that image makes it looks like her hands are huge.
  • Shitlooksass
    Looks like shit, will be shit. No one cares.
    • Scopedog
      How do you know? Did you travel forward in time, watch the movie, and come back to give us your review? No one knows whether this film will be good or not because it has not been released yet. Certainly it has two very strong actors, but until it hits the theaters, all you're doing is spouting nonsense. Just sayin'....
  • Desperately trying to emulate the original. Sad.
    • Scopedog
      You mean the original novel--or the film based on the original novel? 'Cause I remember those things happening in the original novel....but hell, we shall see.

    Did her flower just blossom? Little dove...
