remake has released a new TV spot online, featuring a few new snippets of blood-spattered footage from the forthcoming horror saga.
The new spot confirms that the film has received an R-rating, suggesting that Peirce hasn’t pulled any punches in bringing Stephen King’s classic tale back to the big screen.
That rating will likely put something of a dent in the film’s box office take, although with no obvious horror competition lined up in the US for October, the film could still perform well, given its modest budget.
Take a look at the new spot, below:
If nothing else, that bucket of pigs’ blood looks even more grotesque than it did the first time round, while Julianne Moore looks set to steal the show as our heroine’s religiously unhinged mother.
Directed by Peirce and co-starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Judy Greer and Gabriella Wilde,
will open in the UK on 29 November 2013.
