Watch: Chloe Moretz Unleashes the Power of 'Carrie' in Second Trailer

April 4, 2013
Source: Yahoo


Last fall, the first trailer for Kimberly Peirce's new adaptation of Stephen King's classic horror tale Carrie showed us the fiery aftermath of the telekinetic destruction caused by the titular character. Now Chloe Grace Moretz is back in a trailer that finally begins to paint a fuller picture of the remake other than the iconic bloody imagery we're used to seeing. Remember, the film was pushed back from its original March release date to a more appropriate October release, and maybe even awards contention for Moretz and Julianne Moore. This looks like an interesting approach, with the heightened telekinetic powers, but I'm not sold just yet. Plus the trailer kind of plays the whole movie out in an abridged form anyway. Watch!

Here's the second trailer for Kimberly Peirce's Carrie, originally from Yahoo:

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.

This person makes me hate the internet

Telekinetic indeed. Girls are the worst kinds of it'll be good to see Moretz destroy them.

Mental Terrorism (Girls) vs. Physical Terrorism (Boys).

DAVIDPD on Apr 4, 2013


The mental if definitely worse. Physical is almost as bad.

Xerxexx on Apr 4, 2013


Physical gives you motivation to get stronger though, mental can fuckin break you.

and cause you to become suicidal.

Xerxexx on Apr 4, 2013


Technically, it's all mental. Not disagreeing with previous statements, just adding to the thought bucket.

Yep...showing physical dominance over someone can sometimes mess them up emotionally...feelings of inadequacy and inferiority, and all that junk.

Chris Groves on Apr 5, 2013


Indeed any abuse is a mixture of mental and physical abuse. Some people are able to overcome their tormentors and grow stronger than them, which is beautiful.

As a woman I can confirm this. Girls are backstabbing, scheming, manipulative bitches when they feel wronged, or simply want to get it their way. The worst is, we can hold grudges until we die. It's pretty ridiculous. Guys might break some bones, but girls break spirits.

They gave away everything, but it looks really good!!!

DAVIDPD on Apr 4, 2013


Chloe I love you.

Did anyone Call Carrie(the phone number at the end) ?

David Banner on Apr 4, 2013


I did. It's pretty fucked up.

Greg dinskisk on Apr 5, 2013


Is it like the Corey Hotline?

Everyone knows the story already, so what gets people to the theatre is the idea of seeing the classic scenes from a new perspective. Unfortunately, I now have seen that perspective thanks to this embarrassingly revealing trailer, which has guaranteed me an empty viewing experience, regardless of how well-crafted the film is. OR Maybe they showed us the stuff we recognize, and saved all the really good stuff for the release. fingers crossed it's the latter

Julianne Moore has some big shoes to fill.

"...maybe even awards contention..." The Razzies?

I see why it's nice to have an attractive girl as the lead in any movie, but in this case it takes away some plot credibility. That being said, I didn't like the original much, so I don't think I'll like this one.

The serial effects look great, but sadly it doesn't look like something that genuinely captures the dark spirit of what teenagers go through in school today, based on everything we've seen happen from online suicides to shooting children in the playground, etc. Chloe Grace Moretz seems to be doing an amazing job at acting like an awkward outcast but they haven't made her LOOK like an awkward, nerdy outcast. She looks like the kind of girl who would be very popular in school.

Kill Her, Kill The Devil........Amen.

Kully on Apr 5, 2013


Im with ya maan.....its kinda funny how they make a movie to make the bad guy a good guy / a good guy a bad guy, like in Looper they try to save that little bad kid like if he's a good kid. Messing with our heads i tell yaa!! Kill The Devil. 😛

I know it's a remake, and many know the story, but I feel like they showed off EVERY major point/highlight of the film. It's like a repeat of the King Kong 05 trailers. Yes, it's a well known story...but there ARE people who don't know it, and perhaps even people familiar with the original story wouldn't like such an extensive presentation of it in the marketing of the new film.

Chris Groves on Apr 5, 2013


There's no surprises anymore.

Not sure if you meant that in agreeing with me, or meant it as 'why hide anything?' type of way...but there is certainly value in not showing everything off. My friends and I were in a theater recently and saw a poster, and out of about 6 of us, 2 had no idea what 'Carrie' was. If THEY saw this trailer they would have nearly the basics of the whole movie laid out for them. I would wager that the generation behind mine, the sub-20 year old crowd...has very little knowledge of this story. But now they know the entire prom plot-line. Compelling promos could have been put together JUST using the 'crazy mother, bullied at school' dynamic and not fully laying out where it escalates to.

I love it when people say about this that they just saw the whole movie. "Im very disapointed in the new planet of the apes movie, they totally gave away that there are apes in it!! UGH"

tinamn on Apr 5, 2013


I dont think it looks bad but....besides Moore seems to be doing a good job, overal this movie is completely unnecessary. It seems to be almost a remake shot by shot. My biggest problem is the casting. Chole does not look the kind of girl who gets bullied or wouldn't have a shot with boys. Sissy's performance was so good because she really felt detached, lonely and full of fear. Chole seems to try hard but i dont buy it. Def a pass for me. Maybe a rental.

Her Boobs have telekinetic powers
