Very Bloody Chloe Moretz is Back on New Poster for 'Carrie' Remake
After seeing the most recent full trailer for the remake of Carrie starring Kick-Ass star Chloe Moretz, the marketing behind this film is really relying on the iconic moment that even audiences who haven't seen the original Brian De Palma film or read the Stephen King novel seem to know about. Though the pinnacle of the film is the prom embarrassment of pig's blood and the freak out that ensues, those moments are front and center in the marketing, and in this new poster. The only real draw seems to be the more loyal portrayal of the book, the performances and the heightened intensity of Carrie's telekinesis, but will that be enough?
Here's the new poster for Kimberly Peirce's remake of Carrie from Empire:
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.
