New CARRIE Footage & Chloë Grace Moretz Discusses Her Role In First Featurette

Julianne Moore, Chloë Grace Moretz, and director Kimberly Peirce, discuss what makes Carrie White tick in this first featurette for Carrie. Hit the jump to check out some new footage as well.


The original, 1976's Carrie, based off of a book written by Stephen King ("Misery"), was directed by Brian De Palma and starred Sissy Spacek as Carrie White. A great film. But, I wanted to point out that I recently watched the 2002 remake. It was a television movie, directed by David Carson and starred Angela Bettis in the lead role. But, it's not the direction of the film or the acting that stood out, it was the writing. So, after the film ended I felt compelled to see who had made all these small but clever changes from the original feature film, that gave it that je ne sais quoi. Lo and behold, it was Bryan Fuller. Who is the creator of two of my favorite series, Pushing Daisies and more recently, Hannibal.

Why do I bring this up? For one, anyone that likes Carrie should give the 2002 remake a gander. Just try to ignore the shotty special effects. And two, it means I'm softening my stance on this new remake, as I am more open to watching it, hoping that it too can add a fresh, modern take on the material.

A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine, is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter, Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Judy Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc. Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of CARRIE earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.

CARRIE - directed by Kimberly Peirce, from a screenplay written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa; Based on the Novel by Stephen King. The includes: Chloë Grace Moretz, Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Alex Russell, Gabriella Wilde, Ansel Elgort and Julianne Moore. The horror film opens in theaters October 18.

I wish they would make a theme from that "They're all gonna laugh at you scene from the original film." It would be pretty neat if they made a score out of that. At least for the trailers that is! :D

Well nothing will ever be as good as the first, but I really like Chloe she is a really good actress for her age.

I just hope that when they douse her in the pig blood and her powers manifest she screams "Game on, cock suckers!"

No offense to the site but how does this count as a COMIC BOOK movie, when it's based on just a regular book?

Hawkeye: This site will run news on a lot of non comic book movies, mostly if someone involved in said non-CBM has been involved in a comicbook movie before.

I.e. A Hunger Games article because Jennifer Lawrence is also Mystique.

I'm curious. The original movie ends in tragedy with the bucket of blood and everything, and there's at least an element of "will it end in tragedy?!" when you watched that the first time. This movie is marketed with trailers showing basically everything from that last scene.

So, I'm curious, if you guys know whether this movie will pivot differently? Will this be about "more" than that? Is the first movie significantly different from the book, and this leverages that fact?

Just seems to me that all the media for this leads with the big reveal.

This movie's gonna be good or if nothing else Mortez is gonna be good in it lol

Terrible casting, she's not supposed to look cute as a button from the offset. Carrie is supposed to appear an ugly duckling who grows into a swan type transformation. They needed to cast an actress who can look plain as day but attractive when dolled up. There aint nothing plain looking about Chloe Grace Moretz at any time of the day.

Unfortunately Hollywood has forgotten how to cast for actual artistic representation and instead cast for popularity and celebrity status like the kind of clueless fanboys who want Nathan Fillion or Nicholas Cage in everything. The original movie has nothing to fear form this typical Hollywood remake come star vehicle.
