Sony Pictures has debuted the first clip from their upcoming remake on Stephen King’s Carrie. The movie follows shy high school student [Chloë Grace Moretz] who is raised by her fanatic mother [Julianne Moore] & receives devastating telepathic powers just as she reaches puberty. She eventually uses those gifts for lethal means when fellow classmates use the prom as an excuse to humiliate her before the entire school in a parable about bullying. Judy Greer, Alex Russell, Megan Hilty, Gabriella Wilde, Ansel Elgort, Portia Doubleday & Ivan Hoey Jr all co-star. Kimberly Peirce [Boys Don’t Cry] directs the remake which arrives this October 18th. Brian De Palma’s 1976 version of Carrie earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek & Piper Laurie. Hit the jump for the details.
Synopsis: "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 (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."
