Fans of a good horror story are in for a heck of a ride come spring 2013, which is when a remake of “Carrie,” based on a novel by Stephen King and the cult classic film by Brian De Palma, arrives in theaters.
Below is a brand new poster for it, click on the image to see it in full.
It’s a close-up of Carrie’s face, as played by Chloe Moretz. She’s covered in blood and is staring into the camera in a way that can’t but send a chill down your spine.
“You will know her name,” reads the huge caption. We sure will
On the same note, the first teaser trailer for “Carrie” premiered over the weekend at Comic-Con in New York, and here’s io9
’s description of it (we don’t have video yet):
An eagle-eye shot pans over a dark city. There’s a voiceover of a man muttering about destruction and saying, “I don’t want to say it as a conspiracy, but…” The camera pans over what can only be an old high school, the whole thing is in flames. The windows are bursting with flames, but the camera doesn’t stop there; it moves forward. Fireballs of debris litter the street, and a girl speaks in a different voiceover, “Her Mother was a fanatic. I don’t know how she lived with her.” The camera zooms to street level, showing more and more destruction—the town is in flames. Finally, it stops on a girl standing in front of a bonfire in the town center. It’s Carrie. She’s covered in blood and looks completely freaked out. The End.
“Carrie” is directed by Kimberly Peirce and will stay closer to King’s novel than De Palma’s film did, hence the differences that will inevitably appear between the two films.
