If you’re looking for a horror fix this October, then MGM and Screen Gems has you covered with Kimberly Peirce’s new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novel Carrie. For those unfamiliar with the story, it centers on a bullied teenage girl (played by Chloe Grace Moretz) who discovers that she has telekinetic powers and decides to dish out retribution against her tormentors including her abusive mother (played by Julianne Moore). For more on the film, watch the first clip, check out a bunch of new images with a cool viral video, and read Adam’s 25 things to know from his set visit and his interviews with Moretz, Peirce, and Judy Greer.
A few days ago, I got to speak with Julianne Moore in Los Angeles. She talked about what her friends and family thought about her taking on the role, how she hates watching herself on screen but will watch playback on set, the popularity of The Hunger Games and how her family has read the books (she plays Alma Coin in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and 2), and more. Hit the jump to watch.
