Carrie

The new adaptation of Stephen King's novel Carrie is still months away, but MGM and Screen Gems just want to make sure you don't forget about it. Taking a cue from the Internet meme that arose from a World War II-era British public safety poster, a new motion posters simply says "Keep Calm and Carrie On." If you're still confused about the creative inspiration behind this poster, you can read about it right here, but otherwise, it's a cool little promotional piece with some intense footage featuring Chloe Moretz, fire and blood. You might see this on some screens in your more upscale movie theaters. Check out the poster below!

Here's the motion poster for Kimberly Peirce's remake of Carrie via ComingSoon:

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 early last year, and plans to release the new adaptation in theaters everywhere starting on October 18th, 2013.

    I actually expected a lot worse when I read 'motion poster' after seeing that Frankenstein one. This one is okay, but is ruined by that shitty pun.

    Actually i like that, it s better option for a motion poster than the regular "background motion"

    I forgot about it the minute I heard they were making it. It became easier to forget once I saw the horrible trailer. I'm sure I'll forget about it when it eventually comes on tv and I cringe and go "they really remade Carrie....again?"

    At least it's different than most motion posters....
