The first trailer has arrived for Kimberly Peirce’s
remake, featuring Chloe Moretz as the titular heroine with a very particular set of skills…
From what we’ve seen so far, it all looks remarkably similar to the Brian De Palma version, with several of that film’s most iconic scenes (the changing room, the prom night) present and correct in the trailer.
In fact, the trailer pretty much serves as a condensed version of the entire story, which isn’t so much of a problem when the tale is as well known as this one, but still seems to be giving rather a lot away.
Take a look at the new trailer, below…
While there’s definitely a sensation of familiarity about the whole thing, Moretz and Julianne Moore look extremely well cast as the dysfunctional daughter-mother combo, while the climactic prom sequence doesn’t look likely to stint on blood…
Directed by Peirce and co-starring Judy Greer, Gabriella Wilde and Portia Doubleday, Carrie will open in the UK on 29 November 2013.
