Carrie: 11 Big Differences Between The Book And Movie Carrie: 11 Big Differences Between The Book And Movie
I was surprised by how much of the film is pulled straight from the book, from dialogue scenes between kind-hearted queen bee Sue Snell and her beloved boyfriend Tommy Ross, to Margaret's gruesome belief that her pregnancy was actually a cancer, and the extension of Carrie's carnage beyond that blood-drenched prom. However, Peirce still took several noteworthy liberties from the original text. And we'll break them down below.

Surprisingly, Carrie's scores are almost as strong. While trailers have made Kimberly Pierce's adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel basically look like a shot-for-shot remake of Brian De Palma's movie from 1976, users on Fandango have given the movie a 79/100 score and it's predicted that the film will come in a close second place to the current Oscar frontrunner.

I've yet to see any proof that we actually need a remake of Carrie. Yes, interesting people like Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce and Julianne Moore are involved, and sure, the original Brian de Palma film is nearly 40 years old, and horrible teenage girls have only gotten more horrible in the last few decades. But every trailer and TV ad and motion poster for the movie seems hellbent on only showing off the most famous scenes from the first film

"We actually prolonged the film, to be honest,” said Moretz, who plays the titular telekinetic. “We did some reshoots [in Toronto this past May], and added three extra scenes with Julianne [Moore, playing Carrie’s mother Margaret] and I to make the movie even deeper and darker." Reshoots normally mean a film is playing weaker than the filmmakers’ expectations, but Moretz says this isn’t so.

What's I'm personally still waiting for is to see how this version of Carrie plans to differentiate itself from the 1976 adaptation. Everything we've seen from the movie suggests that this is going to be a carbon copy of the movie we've already seen, albeit with better special effects.

Following up on yesterday's brief trailer preview, we now have our first full trailer for Carrie, the reimagining of the 1976 classic horror film based on Stephen King's novel. This new adaptation comes from Kimberly Peirce and stars Chloe Moretz as the title character, a teen who's sheltered and awkward and doesn't fit in at school, to say the least. Julianne Moore plays her religious, overbearing mother, who thinks locking her in a closet is for her own good.

Previous glimpses of the upcoming feature adaptation of Stephen King's Carrie have focused on the title character post-meltdown, all blood covered and glowering after things at the big dance got out of control - to say the least. This new snippet of the film, courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, gives us a peek at the events leading up to that infamous outburst.

This is a great pic to promote the film. Sure, it's from the third act, but a third act that was already iconic. Director Kimberly Peirce needs to sell to audiences on what's different about her Carrie. And from this image alone we get some idea. Yes, there's the requisite blood, but this nearly full body shot also reveals the delicate details of Carrie's prom dress that are cake in gore and forever soiled.

If you're a major studio getting set to release a big name horror movie your first thought when it comes to a release date should be, "How does October look?" Thanks to Halloween movie-going audiences often look for a way to get scared during the tenth month of the year, and as a result franchises like Saw and Paranormal Activity have been able to thrive.

Nothing says “Happy Holidays” quite like streams of crimson-red blood dripping down the face of a girl with telekinetic powers as she tears her small-minded town apart, limb by limb. At least, that’s what Sony hopes now that they’ve Christmas-ized a new image of Chloe Grace Moretz for a quick and easy Carrie poster meant to keep the film at the top of our minds as we head into the new year.

Adapted by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the new version stars Moretz as Carrie White, an introverted high school student who is not only bullied and tormented by her classmates, but emotionally and physically abused by her mother. After being pushed to the brink she finds that she develops telekinetic powers and uses them to take revenge against the people who have made her life miserable. The cast also includes Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Alex Russell, Gabriella Wilde, and Ansel Elgort.

Despite the bleakness in the plot, Peirce repeatedly used the word "fun" to describe the film, and seems confident that it will appeal to broader audiences that her past efforts. With Moore and Moretz on board, Carrie got cautious optimism from many movie fans normally enraged by remakes, but when the first teaser hits the web, I wager even more fans will be won over. In the meantime, they did share something all of you can also enjoy: the phone number for the White residence.

As much she has a reputation for comedy thanks to her work on Arrested Development and in movies like 13 On 30, Greer had a nice dramatic turn in The Descendants last fall, and she's got the kind of sweet demeanor that would make her well-suited for the role of the generous gym teacher

Julianne Moore And Gabriella Wilde Board Carrie Remake Julianne Moore And Gabriella Wilde Board Carrie Remake
The production helmed by Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce had previously lined up Chloe Grace Moretz to front the remake. While many horror remakes of late have been little more than pale imitations of their source material, pairing Moretz with Moore immediately sets this revamp apart from the pack. Of course it's still a risky move to redo something that so many deem a classic, but I must admit curiosity as to what Pierce will do with the iconic tale...

With Kimberly Peirce on board to direct, Carrie can't quite be written off as your standard knockoff horror remake, but it's hard to know exactly what to make of it at all. Moore signing on might indicate a little more quality, but then again she's made plenty of crap over the years as well

Remakes are so common now that when announced they're almost immediately disregarded. Even circumstances where the project doesn't sound like such a bad idea they're still dismissed and lumped into the unoriginal pile - and often justifiably. Yet there are times when a remake is not only warranted, but...
