Screen Gems and MGM have released the first teaser trailer for the remake of Stephen King's classic story Carrie. This is the same teaser that was shown over the weekend at New York Comic Con. I think it makes a solid first impression.
The adaptation was directed by Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry, Stop-Loss), and it stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Alex Russell, Gabriella Wilde and Ansel Elgort.
The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White and her daughter Carrie. Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson, but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell, regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross, to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.
The movie hits theaters on March 15th, 2013. Watch the teaser and let us know if you're impressed with this first look!
