Screen Gems has released the first full trailer for director Kimberly Peirce’s (Boys Don’t Cry) upcoming remake Carrie.  Based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King, the film revolves around a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) who discovers she has telekinetic powers and who is abused at home by her ultra-religious mother (Julianne Moore) and tormented at school by her peers.  This full trailer gives us a much better idea of what Peirce’s vision for the story looks like (it’s almost too revealing), and it’s clear that this Carrie is going to be quite intense.  There’s a bit of a superhero bent to the scenes in which Carrie is discovering her powers, and Peirce doesn’t look to be holding back when it comes to the more violent aspects of the story.  The highlight, though, is the scenes between Moretz and Moore, which promise to be sufficiently disturbing.  Matching the quality of Brian De Palma‘s masterful 1976 adaptation is a tall order, but hopefully Peirce brings an intriguing angle to her iteration of the King classic.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Ansel Elgort, Alex Russell, and Gabriella WildeCarrie opens on October 18th.

    Wow. Also, just watched the original trailer for Carrie from 76. The trailers are very similar in how much of the film they show, and I don’t think that’s on purpose.

    Looks OK, aside from they turned Carrie into a Jedi. I like Moretz, but the original Sissy Spacek was soooo much creepier in every way possible. Also looked more a freak too, Moretz in this is too pretty, she’s supposed to be a victim of bullying, yet doesn’t look like a freak enough to warrant it. And the change of letting this Carrie wield her powers like the Force is like a superpower rather than a supernatural affliction.

    Same with her Mother, the original was creepy as hell and looked genuine. This looks glossy, like a play based on the original. No doubt this film will have some good deaths and carnage like a Final Destination movie, but already from the trailer, its no where near as genuine or creepy as the original. Maybe the time setting has a lot to do with it. Still, I’ll give it a watch on the small screen.

      Wow… you can tell all that based off a 2 minute teaser fading in and out of scenes every 10 seconds?

      • DREDD

        Yes!
        Every clip it showed (based on seeing the original film about 20 times over the years) this trailer pops in and out of the original, kinda seen too much of the film here in this trailer actually. Only mystery is the pacing and splatter effects. Hell, it even ruins the bucket of blood scene mostly. I can see its similarities and its differences all in this trailer, can’t you? Or have you not seen the original?

        I thought the same thing about the remake of let the right one in, the similarities and differences were evident in both trailer and film. Original of that was also far superior, due to its actors, and overall style and setting. Far creepier.

        Reason I can tell is both these films were remakes, almost scene for scene, it shows that here so theres enough to compare.

      It’s unusual that you’ve seen the original Carrie 20 times over the years. That’s a decent movie of the book.
      This movie is closer to the book than the DePalma version and even if some scenes are similar between the two, that a good thing-it’s from the same source. The movie is going to look very glossy-in the original film the death scenes at the prom were muted in gore; here it’s going to be a highlight, and that works with the rage which drives Carrie. If anything, this’ll be an improvement in Carrie’s retribution.

    Looks fantastic but I hate that they give so much in the trailer. Moretz is gonna own it though.

  • Kaluha

    Chloe Moretz as the ugly duckling? Moretz cannot get boys? This is problem with modern adaptations. Brian De Palma CARRIE would remain as a classic, probably forever.

    • Andrew

      Agree with that.
      Although the effects might be better in the remake,…i don’t honestly think it will outshine DePalma’s original.Sissy Spacek & Piper Laurie’s acting was outstanding,as was the haunting music score for the movie.
      As you said,a classic.

  • will

    I feel like I just watched the movie…

  • Yurine

    Well it is Carrie, we all know how it ends.

  • James

    What do you people expect as far as the whole “I feel like I just watched the movie” and “They give to much away in the trailer” ? Everybody knows the story and knows how it ends. There is the source material(King’s book) and two film adaptations (now three!) So of course it’s going to feel like you seen the whole film through the trailer, it’s been covered so many times over the years in various formats. Im looking forward to this still because of Chloe and Julianne. Can’t wait and I hope that what was said at New York Comic Con stays true regarding the rating this has to be R’ NO PG-13 please!

  • junierizzle

    Looks pretty basic. I’ll still see it because I am a Kimberly Pierce fan and I’m curious to see what she does with it. I’m sure she brings something to the table.

  • monsieurennui

    So they’ve just shown the whole movie right there. Why, if they’re introducing Carrie to a new generation; now there’s absolutely no element of surprise. Decision makers here are f%7ken’ morons. Shame.
