Watch: New 'Carrie' TV Spot Touting Chloe Moretz's R-Rated Remake
It's fall, and we're getting close to Halloween and all things horror and terror. That means the hype machine for the October horror releases is in full swing, and this time it's the remake of Carrie from Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce in the spotlight. A new TV spot has just debuted showing off this new Carrie, brought to life by Chloe Moretz, complete with more intense and scary telekinetic powers. Though the trailers have basically laid out the whole story, we're betting it's Carrie's freak out and performances that makes the familiar story entertaining. Plus, this TV spot reveals the remake is R-rated. That's cool to hear.
Here's the newest TV spot for Kimberly Peirce's Carrie remake, from the film's YouTube channel:
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.
