    2 reasons this story is being re-adapted: 1) the current relevance of bullying in school/social media/suicides 2) It is said to follow the novel whereas the '76 original didn't.


    In this 2013 adaption a abused & bullied sheltered girl sets out violent revenge at her prom (against the town too) when pushed & bullied too far by her peers. It's directed by Kimberly Pierce, the director of BOYS DON'T CRY & STOP-LOSS. It stars Chloe Grace Moretz & Julianne Moore.

    It's released in theaters nationwide in October 2013!

    Trailer is below!

    At first I was thinking "NOOOooooo!!!"
    After seeing the trailer, I'm thinkin' "Whoa!"

    I'm a huge fan of the original, and love the Stephen King novel....I hope it's as good as the trailer makes it out to be.

    I was thinking today; Julianne Moore would be an ideal lead for the remake of "The Eyes of Laura Mars"....they're bound to give that one an update eventually.

    This incarnation of Carrie and her mom are way too pretty; any idiot can see how they're both just one makeover shy of being mean girls themselves. Part of the fun and realness of the first version was how they were both such obvious targets for taunts given how they were both styled; they acted and looked wacky. Here, Carrie just looks like she's "artistic." But one thing I saw that this film definitely not only got right but improved upon was something so horrible that even Steven King didn't forsee it - cell phone cameras in the shower scene with the spectre of perpetual viral humiliation!

    While I do agree, Chloe is very pretty - however what should sell it is her performance & emotions. After they announced this last may I got over the "she's too pretty" issue. Just meaning it shouldn't be about the outside appearance. She's a great actress, & also I remember alot of pretty awkward girls who got picked on in HS.

    Anyway I can understand what you mean & I completely agree about using the cell phone recording for humiliation as a great idea.

    I'm really excited to see this! Yes...she's pretty, but I know several girls who everyone knew could be a 'mean girl' with a little effort put into their appearance/clothing, but were picked on anyways. I think it will be fine. Chloe is a great actress. She'll be able to pull it off nicely! Off to watch it once more. icon_biggrin.gif

    first of all the original is a classic. The performances by Piper Laurie and Sissy Spacek spot on in their delivery. That kind of acting does not go on today.

    I love the genre but will hate this movie. Julianne Moore certainly is a good choice but the actress playing Carrie is too attractive, its ridiculous. This looks like a glossy watered down version that will end up being like the awful Omen remake. I will see this but omg my expectations are that this will be very disposable and do not see the point of this remake

    This is the 2nd remake of this movie.... I've seen the one made in the 1990's as well. Looks great, but I concur on the doubt. What is to be gained from this remake? Seeing Julianne Moore will be great, but I wonder how this one will be different.. or will it? Maybe thats the point.

    It looks good but Chloe Grace Moretz is too pretty to be believable as Carrie, at least in my mind.

    True, but again it's just as realistic that she isn't "ugly" - this movie is representing the issue of modern day bullying, & nowadays ANY one on school yard can get bullied.I remember a few girls back in highschool that were pretty yet they got picked on & blacklisted cuz they were deemed "too weird", quiet, etc.

    So with that said, in this case it works. I think some are just a lil' Stuck on appearances. They have roughed her "carrie"up around the edges.

    It should be her acting, skill, emotion conveyed, & believability of her performance that conveys the sad tragic girl that is "Carrie White". Not her looks.

    Just be glad!!!! Though she wasn't considered for the part, Megan Fox found out bout The casting of Carrie & she tried to fight her way to audition/get the role thru her agent. Hahaha

    Yes, I think the acting can over power being too pretty for the role. They could have done a makeup job on her like Charlize Theron in Monster! Being attractive doesn't necessarily correlate to being liked.

    It's not like they remade Mask and cast Bradley Cooper as Rocky Dennis.

    I thought the prettiness of the main character a complete departure from the novel. The Mom sounds rather weak and ineffectual ( no Piper Laurie, that's for sure).

    It would have been best to stick to the time of the novel as well, constantly upgrading it to match the current year of the movie's release in cultural and social aspects loses some of the novel's workability.

    Oh well, it's what sells.

    exactly. Piper laurie & sissy was SPOT ON. I will go see it just because I have a horror movie addiction. I didn't like Chloe Grace Moritz in vampire remake "Let the right one in" the original actress and movie done in swedish with the original actress was AMAZING.

    Personally, I am sick of the endless remakes/ruining of great old movies and tv shows. There are some rare exceptions (Star Trek).

    However, this one does look like it might be worth checking out.

    I will say, I am pretty sure that every thought and idea hasn't been taken. Surely someone in hollyweird can come up with a new idea for a movie.

    Well, it being based on a source novel, I think it's fair to have another adaption. It's kinda like if all these superhero movies/remakes/reboots are allowed to tell a different perspective, then surely any horror novel can do the same.

    However I agree w/ ya, I wish there was more original horror output out there, where it originates from the screenwriters brain & not a used idea. Hah!

    Many of the recent teen female suicides - many of 'em were bullied till death & they were pretty as well. In this generation ya don't have to look like a ogre to be picked on or singled out.

    Besides Carrie, in the source material, is picked on for her odd/awkward social behavior, religious upbringing, way of dressing & her skin. Not exactly cuz she was butt-ug.

    Because for the past thousand years until recently it's been a pretty shit deal being gay. Anyone who has ever been bullied can watch this film and not only feel for her, but play with the idea of "what if...".
