Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, a reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White, a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother, who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

Starring: Chloë Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, Gabriella Wilde, Judy Greer, Ansel Elgort

Release Date: March 15, 2013

Check out the teaser trailer



I never doubted myself for a minute for I knew that my monkey-strong bowels were girded with strength, like the loins of a dragon ribboned with fat and the opulence of buffalo dung.

Chloë Grace Moretz is a great actor, but if you've seen her in interviews, she is the complete opposite personality to Carrie White. So, I hope she can believably pull it off.

Chloë Grace Moretz doesnt fit the role for Carrie White. Sissy Spacek made a perfect Carrie White btw.

It looks atrocious, it looks like typical girl with psychokinetic powers goes on rampage story instead containing all the substance and all the themes of adolescence Stephen King wrote into the story.

I pass! :td:

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

You are really picky about movies. In my three threads I've posted about movies on here, you've had a complaint about each one. And, how can you make that assumption from a teaser trailer that has one image? :huh:

Past experiences of the recent surge of remakes. That has set the bar terribly low. Remakes rank as the worst movies put out in the industry these days.

Really? Worse than movies released by Troma or Uwe Boll? :huh:

Those can be bad indeed. But still, I am thinking this film is going to be way over the top with zero substance.

I dont think it is going to faithfully put Stephen King's story on the screen.

Are we going to truly pity Carrie White? Or is she going to be represented as just another ostracized teenage seeking revenge whose only supportive friends are a couple of emo kids or something.

Well, the filmmakers have said that this will be more accurate to it's source material that the past two incarnations. Stephen King has also said that he likes what he sees so far.

Hmm.. okay, but that doesnt mean that it is going to be a good movie though. I am still doubtful.
